Nighthawk: Morning all, welcome to a new week, and be grateful you don't live in Greece Jun 29, 2015 8:10:22 GMT 10
Frank: Morning NH, Morning AusPreppers. Very grateful to not be in Greece at the moment Jun 29, 2015 9:34:18 GMT 10
Frank: going to be interesting to see how it all plays out Jun 29, 2015 9:34:32 GMT 10
Matilda: Our market has lost $30 billion in the FIRST 2 HOURS on the back of Greece. It is a knee jerk reaction and will recover but as we are one of the first markets to open in the world it will be interesting to see what Asia's reaction will be. Jun 29, 2015 12:03:45 GMT 10
shinester: I'm not particularly concerned. Greece going down is a good thing Jun 29, 2015 12:43:49 GMT 10
Matilda: Yeah - I think they are better out of it too but there would be a lot of pain until they can rely on the drachma. But if Russia gets involved via Greece's exit,ie fund them and pay their debt, Russia won't do it for nothing. Jun 29, 2015 13:06:22 GMT 10
shinester: The not paying of bills IS the problem for Greece. Jun 29, 2015 14:08:03 GMT 10
shinester: Getting more debt to pay bills isn't exactly a good plan to keep on doing [like they have been] Jun 29, 2015 14:08:18 GMT 10
fractus: Maybe it is a good time to buy a Greek island or two with spare cash. Jun 29, 2015 15:37:52 GMT 10
shinester: like @ fractus Jun 29, 2015 16:13:58 GMT 10
VegHead: Ciao all ... Jun 29, 2015 18:39:05 GMT 10
krull68: Agree with you shinester. had friends who tried to tell me, to get Australia back on track, govt just needs to print more money, US does it after all. No idea some people. Jun 29, 2015 18:56:51 GMT 10
anotheraussieambo: evening all Jun 29, 2015 22:49:20 GMT 10
shinester: Krull68, we 'do' have massive issues with 5 trillion in debt, which is about 300% of our GDP. Most of that is in housing. It'll burst at some point, particularly with 140,000 vacant houses in Vic and half that in Sydney. Jun 30, 2015 9:51:55 GMT 10
shinester: The US GDP to debt ratio is close to 100%, aka they make a lot more than we do. At some point, there's going to be a balancing out and we'll get biten Jun 30, 2015 9:53:45 GMT 10
frostbite: You can't control what the Govt or the sheeple do, all you can do is take what steps you can to minimise the impact on yourself and your family. Jun 30, 2015 11:01:18 GMT 10
