    White settlers still shitting freely where no thunderbox to be found.
    Female white trash also mating freely like rabbits - no Rabbit Proof fence can stop them.

    A former government resources economist warns that rising risky home lending and a persistent budget deficit make Australia's economy vulnerable to a Chinese economic shock next year.

    IMF downgrades growth forecasts, highlights China housing concerns

    By AM business editor Peter Ryan
    Updated <time title="Wed 8 Oct 2014, 12:20pm" class="relative " datetime="Wed Oct 08 2014 12:20:42 GMT+0800" data-format="l">about 9 hours agoWed 8 Oct 2014, 12:20pm</time>

    The International Monetary Fund has again downgraded its forecasts for global economic growth.
    The revisions coincide with bad news about Germany's economy and an array of international problems, including Ebola.
    Investors on Wall Street ran for the exits when the IMF also warned of a possible correction on financial markets.
    The IMF says the risks of an equity price correction this year have risen, and that is consistent with concerns the IMF sees that some valuations could be "frothy", in other words unsustainable.
    The fund did not name any particular market, but the comments were enough for big investors to take the hint that it might be time to sell and the Dow Jones Industrial Average dived and closed 272 points, or 1.6 per cent, weaker.
    The other factor here was gloomy news about Germany where industrial production dropped by 4 per cent in August and that's the biggest decline since 2009 in the height of the global financial crisis.
    So that has made investors very nervous, given that Germany has really been underwriting the euro area where growth is still flat-lining as a result of the eurozone debt crisis.
    Not surprisingly, markets across Europe - in particular France, Germany and Spain - all closed deeply in the red.
    **********: Perpetual's economist Matt Sherwood speaks with AM business editor Peter Ryan

    The IMF now thinks the world economy will grow by 3.8 per cent next year compared to a forecast back in July of 4 per cent.
    Six years after the global financial crisis the world is still struggling to recover in many parts and this was underscored just last week by the IMF's managing director Christine Lagarde who said the world should expect a "new mediocre" in growth rather than a "new normal".
    Given some very big global geopolitical worries - Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Hong Kong and also the spread of Ebola - expectations need to be managed, according to the IMF's chief economist Olivier Blanchard.
    "The recovery continues, but it is weak and it is uneven. So we forecast world growth to be 3.3 per cent in 2014, this is down 0.1 per cent from our July forecast, and 3.8 per cent in 2015, which is down 0.2 per cent from our July forecast," he said.
    "Now these are small revisions, but they are small revisions starting with already fairly low numbers.
    IMF concerned with Chinese housing, not Australia

    The outlook for Australia remains on track, and in line with Treasury forecasts of 2.8 per cent this year and 2.9 per cent in 2015.
    The IMF says a pickup in exports should offset any waning mining investment and the iron ore price is back above $US80 a tonne this morning, but that is still well below expectations of around $US100 built into the budget.
    **********: AM business editor Peter Ryan examines the IMF report

    The IMF also mentions booming housing prices, and that in Australia the rises have been restricted to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and are related to low supply.
    The fund notes that the price rises have not been linked with a large increase in indebtedness, with moderate credit growth.
    However, there is a bigger concern about China where the IMF says the challenge is to manage a real estate slowdown to prevent it becoming a crash.
    "The most notable case is China, where the challenge is to allow for the necessary correction in real estate markets while preventing an excessively sharp slowdown," it noted in its report.
    "In larger cities in China, house prices show signs of overvaluation relative to fundamentals despite measures aimed at restricting speculative demand."

    Have a friend who is planning on emigrating to OZ and according to him, once he gets his PR, his children's education will automatically be free from primary to tertiary education. Is the OZ govt so generous? If not, what's the catch? That's like the most generous treatment towards PRs for any country.

    Depends private/public, tertiary is not exactly free, but more or less interest free loans. We treat all PRs the same, except for passport, jury duty, and certain jobs.

    For public schools, primary till high, there is a yearly, school maintanance fee, it depends on the school, usually less then $500. Tertiary, depends on course, via HECS-HELP, looks like they removed that for PR.

    What is HECS‑HELP?

    The HECS‑HELP scheme is both a student loan and a student discount. Eligible students may access a HECS‑HELP loan to pay their student contribution amounts, or receive a 10% discount (known as the HECS-HELP discount) on upfront payments of $500 or more.

    What is HECS‑HELP?

    The HECS‑HELP scheme is both a student loan and a student discount. Eligible students may access a HECS‑HELP loan to pay their student contribution amounts, or receive a 10% discount (known as the HECS-HELP discount) on upfront payments of $500 or more.

    The HECS‑HELP discount works by increasing the value of a student's upfront payment. This means that the student will actually pay less for their studies if they make an eligible upfront payment. Please refer to the example below for more information about how the HECS-HELP discount and loan can work together.

    Note: The HECS‑HELP 10% discount (not the HECS-HELP loan) will be removed from 1 January 2017.
    Until that date, the current arrangements still apply for units of study that have a census date on or before 31 December 2016.

    Return to top
    Am I eligible for HECS‑HELP?

    To be eligible for HECS‑HELP, you must:

    be studying in a Commonwealth supported place;
    be an Australian citizen; or
    be a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder who meets the long-term residency requirements; or

    Guys, let's say that one already has 60 points from the points assessment, without claiming points for nominated SOL, is there any category of visa to apply for?

    Also, what does a business graduate without work experience, (business owner) apply under the SOL list, but own business is relevant to I.T?
