    We made it to Perth!

    Hi Great to hear of your successful move. Could I ask how you managed to obtain flights. I have registered with Defat but have not heard anything. My visa expires in November and i am at my wits end trying to secure flights. .Good luck and I would very much appreciate any shared experience of getting flights. Rio
  2. Hi All I was gratefully awarded a 1Year RRV last November and presently based in the UK. I have tried to return to OZ, but have been unable to secure flights due to Covid restrictions and my visa expiry date (Nov21) is quickly getting closer. Is there any other persons in the same situation with any solution to this problem or any agents that could help me either return or have experience of getting an extension. I have now been out of OZ for more than 5 years now, so I am worried that I would not be allowed to apply for a new RRV. Many Thanks Rio.

    Outlook for economy not good

    I know you should not look back but reading posts from people in the past makes you realise that no one has a clue about the future so why try to predict it! or maybe this previous thread did have a bit of hindsight!!!! http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/money-finance/147645-australian-economy-collapse-30.html

    This maybe the answer to your question! http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCQQqQIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smh.com.au%2Fbusiness%2Fthe-economy%2Faustralian-economy-sliding-down-the-precipice-says-jp-morgan-20150216-13fwon.html&ei=NfHhVLiUCsWvU8TBgeAF&usg=AFQjCNGb23-2rJ4pD4S2P1edFxTxgT94Xg&bvm=bv.85970519,d.d24

    Yes, If you are making me look back, not a bad prediction. If only our wiser men and ladies had vision and conviction, this could of been maybe different. Peachy Ald lad, you can't argue I was pretty accurate after what was said by the treasury. I didnt know at the time for sure, but the signs were there for all to see. Shame you feel as though I was negative rather than just being factual and opening a discussion to help others coming over know what was in store. That's what I thought this forum was for. Get over it Ald lad and look to the future to see whats in store. Stop looking backwards. Ps I was only commenting on a previous post but again get attacked from yourself. You make people want to quit this forum forever. I hope all that come over benefit and add to the strengths of Australia. They also need to know what the economy is like. see ya Ald lad

    Fairplay, but luck it runs out after a while.

    Cheers, from your answer I'm deriving that you agree that the economy in which we now live is knackered?

    Looks like I was right. Prediction was a bit early but the Australian economy is knackered. Shame, It could of all been different.

  12. Don Argus warns of debt, bubble bombs by:Adam Creighton From:The Australian May 24, 201412:00AM RISING debt risks undermining living standards at the same time that stockmarket bubbles pose a threat to savings, one of Australia’s most eminent businessmen has warned. Don Argus, former chairman of corporate giants BHP and Brambles, said Australia’s economic growth would suffer if Australia’s total debt, now 220 per cent of GDP, climbed much further. Just sayin!
  13. Theres nothing more sure that Australia is in a bubble. Inflation has gone through the roof over the past years and has been left to be uncontrolled. The dollar is too high, house prices too high and wages too high. Its a global competition and when you look at costs to produce anything or sell anything in Australia they dwarf every country. Totally uncompetative globally and for sure something will give, It already has. Anyones guess for the timing but its stacked to the downside. Recession coming again soon.:wink:
