Market woes chip at super nest eggs

THE average Australian superannuation fund lost money in 2011 due to the sharemarket's poor performance, with analysts expecting a 2 per cent decrease in median ''balanced'' funds. Conservative funds and cash funds - which allocate money to defensive assets such as fixed interest and bonds, where returns are normally lower - outperformed high-growth funds. Paul Saliba, chief investment officer at wealth management firm Lachlan Partners, expects the outlook for 2012 to be similar to last year, Read more [...]

RBA’s Ellis Sees No Reason Australia to Follow U.S.-Style House Slump

The Reserve Bank agrees with my thoughts that the Australian Property Market is not going to crash like the US Property Market is. That's why I'm buying up as many U.S Properties as I can and also as much land in fast growing areas in Australia. U.S houses with 15 to 25% cashflows combined with landbanking where I can acquire land and not have to pay for it for 6 to 10 years gives me instant cashflow from the US Properties and capital growth from the land in Australia, without borrowing a cent Read more [...]

Comment from Ross Greenwood on Australian Government Debt

"Right now the Federal Government is at pains to tell everyone - including us the mug-punters and the International Monetary Fund, that it will not exceed its own, self-imposed, borrowing limits.

But every dollar that is borrowed, some time, has to be repaid. By you, by me and by the Read more [...]

Do We Need A New Modern Day “21st Century” Political System To Replace Our Current Out-Dated 19th Century One? by Jamie McIntyre

A truly democratic system. With the technology available today it’s possible to have an improved, modern day, 21st Century political system. Do you agree? Would you like to see debate on this topic? Think about it… Why waste time and energy becoming an elected politician in the current system? Why Read more [...]

We need a 21st Century Political System by Jamie McIntyre

We need a “21st Century” Political System to replace our 19th Century outdated one - just like we need a “21st Century” Education system to replace the 19th Century one! Designed hundreds of years ago; it's time we evolved to a 21st Century style political system. With the current Labor Government political circus continuing between Gillard (possibly Australia’s worst Prime Minister) and Rudd (possibly Australia’s 2nd worst Prime Minister), it’s time to reflect on the sad state Read more [...]

‘How to determine where you will be in 5 and 10 years or beyond’ by Jamie McIntyre

‘How to determine where you will be in 5 and 10 years or beyond’ by Jamie McIntyre The power of extrapolation Catching up with Tim Ferris, best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body a few months back, we were discussing the power of extrapolation. And how effective it is at creating change in our lives, or at least projecting where we will end up. What is meant by extrapolation is; Let's assume in 2010 John put on 5 kg. And in 2011 John also put on 5kg. One Read more [...]

What is Australia’s #1 Property Hot Spot? by Jamie McIntyre

Australia's #1 Property Hot Spot Many 21st Century subscribers email through questions and a common one is, where does Jamie think the best property hot spot in Australia is currently? As a financial educator, unlike typical financial planners, I'm an actual avid investor so I can not only highlight property hot spots but I can share where I'm investing and why. In other words I put my money where my mouth is. Due to slowing and steady growth in capital cities I've moved my focus to regional Read more [...]
