I'm not surprised the Chinese got cranky about Australian parroting of anti-Chinese rhetoric by Trump, about COVID, it seemed like like a terribly dumb move, within milliseconds of hearing it, after all, I don't recall Canberra calling for an enquiry into the origins of the GFC. Perhaps Isaac can help ? Wink

And in response to Shrunk in the Wash.  There were many mistakes made here also.  And yes we were lucky to come around.  

But if once the mistake had occurred the people had decided to ignore the rules we would be just as bad as most of the rest of the world.  They didn't. 

It’s a matter of degrees I guess. What about all the chaotic scenes at the Sydney beaches. It happened on many occasions along with the protests and marches and over crowding of inner city pubs.
I could never understand why 5 people couldn’t go to a cafe but 500 could wander around wooliesConfused

Anyways, we’ve survived so all is good

Great effort Australia, virtually 0 cases .

The economy is recovering well 3.3% growth in the last quarter, back on track Smile

As for vaccines, we have them coming out of our ears. Just shows Tim Flannery is not the only scientist to be accused of getting it wrong, our very own immunologist was way off the mark Embarrassed

No Mr P., I think they may have updated the story and either deliberately or accidently killed the link. I just Googled the key words and ABC and the new link came up.

There are tentative signs that the latest spurt in cases, is easing, including in the USA, where daily deaths are getting up to where they were in the first peak. It seems to be a case of when it flares, people get more careful, when that leads to a decline in cases, people relax again and it gets another go on.

What happened to Macca.  Did he see we haven't destroyed our economy and actually may be better off than he thought after the tough shut downs?  Hope so he needed cheering up.

The Chinese "flu" will have less effect on us than our poking the panda bear will, I am sure there are a lot of people in China-oriented export businesses that are in a state of apprehension at recent developments. As the old song says, "look after business, Mr businessman", something the dipsticks in Canberra lost sight of.

Brilliant effort by Australia to halt the rampaging virus. Harsh measures needed to be taken, were largely adhered to and now we are nearly virus free.  An example to the world Smile

Now the economy is roaring back, house prices are rising, even in Victoria they did not fall much and in some areas actually rose. 2021 seems rosy barring  unforeseen events or one situation that is escalating, China.

Vaccines are available sorely needed o'seas but equally important are more effective treatments for cases or the death toll will continue to be horrific.



Economy set to end 2020 with a flourish

Colin Brinsden, AAP Economics and Business Correspondent
·3-min read

The Australian economy has entered the final months of 2020 in positive shape with exports rebounding, home loans at record levels and construction activity at a two-year high.

This spread of new economic data came hot on the heels of Wednesday's national accounts which showed the economy grew by a robust 3.3 per cent in the September quarter.

That signalled the end of Australia's first technical recession since the early 1990s, and the initial signs are the December quarter will be equally upbeat, aided by the reopening of Victoria after its COVID-19 lockdown.

"The economy is changing gears once again and we are moving forward," Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters in Canberra, emerging from two weeks quarantining after a trip to Japan.

Westpac chief economist Bill Evans said his bank's own credit card data suggests the strength of consumer spending seen in the September quarter extended into October and November,

"That's pointing to, I would imagine, quite a strong quarter for the December quarter as well," Mr Evans said.

The monthly trade surplus grew to $7.5 billion from $5.8 billion in October, buoyed by a larger-than-expected five per cent jump in exports.

This included a 14 per cent increase iron ore exports.

Exports had been the weak link in the national accounts, detracting 1.9 percentage points from growth and the biggest quarterly subtraction in 40 years.

Meanwhile, other Australian Bureau of Statistics data showed the value of home loans for owner-occupiers in October rose 0.8 per cent to a record high $17.4 billion, to be more than 30 per cent higher than a year earlier.

Loans to owner-occupier first home buyers accounted for 35.3 per cent of the loans during the month.

ABS data earlier this week showed building approvals at a 20-year high.

House building was seen as e cornerstone of a further strengthening in the construction sector.

I hate that our economy revolves around our housing.  So many of the younger Australian will never have what my generation took for granted.  And why.

House you buy for say $60K forty years ago now selling for near to or over $1 million.  You haven't had to pay rent.  Yes you have had to spend money to keep it in good nick but the house doesn't owe you anything. 

 I still earn the same - actually less due to hours worked - per hour that I did twenty years ago.  You will find plenty of people in the same boat.  So how can housing be that dear.  I find it unfair.  Yes maybe wages have improved on what we were paid 40 years ago.  But I'm no where near earning $60K yet.  And when I finally have to sell this house.  To buy another will take all the profits so you are really no better off.  But the younger generations are far worse off!

I see plenty of houses sold for over a million in my area.  Luckily still some below but we are in the west not on the coast.  

Now I know we paid our house off at 19% and today it's closer to 3%.  But all that means is when I have to do renovations the bank account suffers and the interest rate doesn't compensate me for the effort.  So in effect I'm going backwards also I guess.

Good on the Poms.  They are our vaccine crash test dummies. If anything goes wrong we will know about it.Thumbs Up

I live in a well established inner eastern suburb in Melbourne.

I bought my current house 35 years ago, then renovated that cost the same as the purchase price. If my house had gone at that rate of $60K to $ 1million (  16.6 times ) I would gladly sell tomorrow. More like 6 > 7 times in appreciation.
