Title: Australian dollar will soon crush the US dollar
Post by: Bad Boy Dazza on January 31, 2013, 12:27:19 AM
For the first time in approximately 30 years the Australian dollar became worth more than the US dollar (in 2011).  Experts predict that in less than two years the US dollar will only buy 0.58 cents Australian.

GO OBAMA!!!!

Note:  I get no pleasure from my US brothers suffering, but the US needs to wake up to where they are heading under Obama and co.

Australian reserve bank doesnt understand globalisation, they expect the chinese not to worry about inflation but use that as its only guide to manage internal interest rates, They should have folllowed global credit markets to in the least slowdon foreign investment. They have basically sold off their manufacturing and toursim industries to compensate the  growing mining industry, their politicians are amoingst the highest paid and least intelligent in the world, and now they are well on their way to ruining their one profitable industry by overtaxing it and allowing unions to push up the price of labour to the point most mines are only profitable during peaks in commodity prices, that country will sink quicker than Greece one day.

You know what mate? We've had the GST in place for a fair while now and the carbon tax hasn't been much of an impact to the punter in terms of expenses (those energy companies were jacking the prices unfairly long before any Carbon tax).. Too much doom and gloom talk is really not warranted - the sky hasn't fallen in. As some people carry on like we're in Greece or Spain. The fact remains our economy has survived remarkably well in the last six years our level of national debt is comparitively minuscule.

Yes but they are using the carbon tax as an excuse.  And it is going to hurt coal mining related industries big time.

Yes that Greece comparison is ridiculous.

The first year that I ran the Pro show, 2001. The Aussie dollars was only at $0.43 So when I paid the sanction fees and prize money in $US it was more than double. It nearly put me under. It continued to be around $0.50 for the next few years, so it's nice to see it even out a bit.

By the way, the economy here is fine, interest rates are good, employment is high and everyone has a roof over their head.

You seem to miss the point, I am not bragging. 

And that bit about printing money "by stealth"....  doesn't change the end results that are coming.  Even dumb kids know that when countries print tons of money that they are on life support.

The high aussie dollar has basically killed our tourism.  It has its advantages and its disadvantages.  And alot of aussies are choosing to travel overseas rather than travel in their own country, simply because it's cheaper to travel overseas rather than in your own country.

32.1% of homes are fully owned, and 34.9% are in the process of being purchased by home loan mortgage. 29.6% of homes are rented.

i agree with the first bit. but to say employment is high and everyone has  aroof over their head is not right.

employment stats are high- thats because the liberals changed the way they were counted..now if u work any hours at all, u are counted as "employed".
also, its never been more difficult to be able to purchase and own your own house...the liberal government caused a massive increase in house prices because they bouyed the economy but not spending on services and facilities, and selling assets.

now average joe cant buy a house and have a family live in it.

so although its been quite resilient, its on the back of digging holes in our land and dodgy stats...its hardly factual.

in fact many of our cities rank as the most expensive to live in- globally.

meanwhile the uber rich get uber richer and pay the same tax or less than what middle class australians do, banks are profiteering, there are more homeless and poverty stricken people than ever before.

as a result our people are looking after themselves more than ever- trying to get ahead at the expense of others- anything to get by...its becoming more and more like the US every day.

the $Au wont ever crush the $US anyways. its been around 100-107 or so for many months now. its more likely to go back to 75c than anything else. and to say the reserve bank doesnt understand global economy is like claiming you know brain surgery better than a forum of brain surgeons..

Good post. The last time I was home I was surprised by how stressed a lot of my friends were, killing themselves at work because they were trying to keep their heads above water. One friend of mine has basically said it's either continue to pay the mortgage where they are (Reservoir in Melbourne) or have another child. They can't afford to do both. People who have jobs seem to be spending a lot more time doing them than they did before.

I'm kind of sad that I missed the chance to own my own home in Oz. I had a good income and I always thought I'd buy something in a decent area one day, but I don't know that that's going to happen now. For all it's faults, the part of Germany I live in is pretty good in terms of standard of living.

Takes longer than ever to pay off a home loan, but homes are still within people reach.

Bear in mind many people are buying fancy homes first time out, way out of their budget - when in the past first homes used to be very modest types of dwellings.

Couldn't agree more. My main consideration was location. I used to be a naturopath, and as callous as it sounds, people in outlying suburbs couldn't afford to come regularly. I made an honest effort to keep prices as low as possible, but you still have to pay rent, staff, medicines, utilities etc etc. I would have been happy with a one bedroom apartment - but in an area that would have been supportive for my business, even they were getting very pricey.

I'm hoping to leave Germany soon, but my wife and I were looking at a house here before Christmas. Completely renovated, built in 1400, an old monastery on a big block of land with 3 floors and 4 cellars. We would have paid the equivalent of $320 000 Aussie with nothing to do.

We didn't because it was too big for us and the real estate agent said if we found any old roman soldiers in the garden we were obligated to report it, and then suffer years of archeologists brushing away the backyard with their paintbrushes! And it was right next to the church. I like the bells - but not every hour of the day.

I'm hoping to leave Germany soon, but my wife and I were looking at a house here before Christmas. Completely renovated, built in 1400, an old monastery on a big block of land with 3 floors and 4 cellars. We would have paid the equivalent of $320 000 Aussie with nothing to do.

Sounds amazing.  I wouldn't have minded buying an old country church when they first started putting those on the market years back.

Good post. The last time I was home I was surprised by how stressed a lot of my friends were, killing themselves at work because they were trying to keep their heads above water. One friend of mine has basically said it's either continue to pay the mortgage where they are (Reservoir in Melbourne) or have another child. They can't afford to do both. People who have jobs seem to be spending a lot more time doing them than they did before.

I'm kind of sad that I missed the chance to own my own home in Oz. I had a good income and I always thought I'd buy something in a decent area one day, but I don't know that that's going to happen now. For all it's faults, the part of Germany I live in is pretty good in terms of standard of living.
so the OZ life isnt that good anymore,is it better in germany??
i didnt understand you,you said your friend said hes either to continue to pay the mortgage or have another child???
wouldnt the sentence be better if you said that you freind said its either to dont pay the mortgage and have a child or pay a mortgage without having abother child

Lee will lead his people to independence and freedom and will be nominated as the first President of Australia !

 ;D ;D ;D No chance & is too late, a few years back there was a "get rid of the Queen" referendum & was knocked .
 O, by the way, Australia is the most doping policed country in the world so no chance for steroid boozer Lee !.

It would have been a lame assed republic - parliament would have elected the president, and there was no "constitution" worth having on offer, in fact what they wrote up was a fucking joke.

My friend said she and her husband combined have enough income to either continue to pay the mortgage where they live and not have another child, or sell the house, move further away from where they work and buy a cheaper house and then be able to afford to raise another child.

i wasn't very clear in my first sentence.

Is German life better than in Oz? Depends what you measure. I live in a pretty affluent part of Germany, and I used to live in a suburb called Armadale in Melbourne - also affluent. People where I live now have a lot more free time than anyone I know at home now, and they earn more. They have more holidays per year (6 weeks) than in Oz. They have to pay a lot more in tax and various compulsory insurances. Aussies have a happier outlook on life and can do a lot more outdoorsy stuff - the weather is a hell of a lot better.

One of the guys at my gym has a brother who lives in Perth. He said, according to his brother, Australians work a lot harder than Germans and have less money, but enjoy life a lot more. I tend to agree.
