    Prospects in Yanchep?

    Hi My wife and I (both aged 27) are planning our move early next year (2014) and are currently progressing nicely through gaining our 190 visas. We are at the stage of trying to decide exactly where on the map to try and settle and after much research, have both been struck on Yanchep. I am a bricklayer, my wife is an admin assistant for the local council here in the UK. To my understanding at the moment, Yanchep is quite remote, which we see as a plus, with several large urbanisation projects in the pipeline for the next many years. This in turn creating many localised employment opportunities throughout all industries. Im basically after confirmation, (ideally from expats that are/have a similar age/working background as us) that my wife and I would find work relatively quickly/easily upon our arrival in Yanchep, thus helping us settle, and that the local economic outlook for the area (within the near future at least) is a bright one. Cheers
  2. Just keeping people updated with interesting articles feel free to comment http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19485406
  3. The governments own financial expert on the economy has forecast another downgrade in the uk's economic growth, he has told the government that the savage austerity cuts aren't working and it is now time for ........... Plan B. The government have told him that there is no plan B and just where does this leave the uk? The future isn't looking good at present and i ask this question to all those who are migrating, or thinking about migrating ONLY:wink: How much of a factor is this playing in your decision to emigrate to Australia?
  4. A Referendum on "Big Australia" Just saw this in my news feed. Some of the main points covered includes - Reducing population growth will reduce average economic growth rate. - The need for skilled migration. - Ms. Gillard's stand on immigration (or the lack of)
  5. There is a superb article on economics/finance with reference to Australia[and indirectly the rest of the world]in today's Sydney Morning Herald[smh.com.au]--its by William Pesek and is titled 'Surplus?,economic growth?,good luck with that'[thurs may 13th].Read-inwardly digest--and be nervous.Makes a host of highly relevant points.Would welcome all comments.Also see 'bubblepedia.com' for an overview of the current housing boom.Both of these are inter-related.Last night on the UK tele' Blanchflower[former member of monetary cttee at BOE]took a very Keynesian view of any proposed cutbacks saying it would boomerang and caused widespread unemeployment[20% was his very off the cuff figure]and a new 1930's.This runs contrary to all the voices shouting for even greater cuts,but is in line with Keynes's thoughts during the 30's.All comments views welcome.Remember in an interconnected world geographic isolation doesn't beget economic isolation/autarky so don't say it will never happen here---see what Pesek says on that.Also saw in one of the online Oz papers that negative equity is back--but only in limited areas and small numbers of families at the moment[sorry can't remeber which one]
  6. We have been in Australia on a temporary visa for 2 years. My understanding (which may be incorrect) is that on the date PR is granted or taken up, overseas investments of which a UK 2nd house rental would be classed) are 'benchmarked' for future capital gains. In a booming economy, that would be fine. Say this house was bought 3 years ago for £200k and at the time of PR ihas a market value of £170k, would this mean that if we held the property and it regained its value to £200k that we would have to pay CGT to the ATO on the £30k even though in real terms we have made no gain? What does the ATO accept as evidence of market value? Also, would there be any CGT on exchange rate, if by some miracle the rates returned to 2.20? Thanks Dave
  7. A new report shows the economic downturn has forced hundreds of thousands of Australians out of full-time employment and into casual work. The report, released exclusively to ABC's Lateline program, comes despite conventional wisdom that in the financial crisis employers have not sacked workers en masse, but merely cut their hours. Bit more honesty from ABC versus print media who are harbingers of only good economic news, and encouraging people to buy or upgrade properties.....
  8. Luck and timing ward off the worst. Good timing, management and a little luck have kept the worst of the global downturn from Australia. Its economy has comfortably been the developed world’s best performer.
  9. Hi. We are hoping to be in Australia by the end of May and are planning to start our new life somewhere between Newcastle / Hunter Valley and Coffs Harbour. Can anyone please tel me what the current situation is for Chef jobs in the present economic climate. I would welcome any views about other areas of Oz too because we will probably end up going where the work is. Just how scary is this whole emigration thing!!!!

  13. Economic stimulus package cuts reduce your payout by $50 | The Daily Telegraph THE Rudd government's $42 billion economic stimulus package has been rejected by parliament. The Senate voted down the government's legislation, implementing the package, after independent senator Nick Xenophon voted with the coalition. The Australian Greens and Family First's Steve Fielding voted with the government, tying the vote at 35-35. The Federal Government had earlier agreed to reduce cash payments to eligible taxpayers by $50 to $900 following negotiations with crossbench senators about its $42 billion economic package. It would also reduce by the same amount, the one-off payment to single-income families. The federal government will now reintroduce legislation advancing its $42 billion economic stimulus package later today after it was rejected by the Senate, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has told parliament.

  15. The Australian Bernard Salt 25 Sep 2008 I AM in Washington DC at the moment releasing a study of the implications of what I call the looming demographic fault line. At the end of this decade baby boomers will exit the workforce at a faster rate than Gen Ys will enter it. This will lead to a skills shortage that will prompt wage inflation and lead governments to increase migration. Economic crunch time as boomers retire | The Australian
  16. Australia is about a year behind the UK in the economic collapse process. So the nation will be in recession by 2009 and in depression 2010 onwards. Does this bother you at all?
