    I love this bit...

    I guess we are a poor nation lacking material comforts to our American friends.

    Well we're certainly a far higher indebted nation in terms of personal balance sheets... so yeh - that would definately qualify as "poorer" in my view as well.

    On a par with South America? That's a bit harsh!

    I am guessing that any country which is not America is considered a poor nation without material comforts, especially Melbourne which is on the other side of the world, miles from the civilising influence of the United States. This is what happens when you make films like 'Crocodile Dundee' and 'Mad Max'

    I've often heard the RBA referring to how "wealthy" Australians are ...
    not surprisingly these comments are based upon the misplaced notion that property values will continue their unsustainable upward trend in Australia.

    In my opinion - any mortgage holder with less than 50% "equity" is in danger of being "underwater" in the not too distant future...

    Will be interesting to see what the stooges at the RBA have to say about the average Ozzie balance sheet then :lol:

    Is the article referring to the Melbourne in USA? I believe there is one.

    Most Americans do not know Geography .We have spent many years racing there and for such a great country their knowledge of other countreis and cultures is very very basic.

    I think you'll find that is by design, keep the blinkers on the herd. Do not let them view the world outside of which they know. USA! USA! USA! USA!
