whoever put warsaw in there might want to explain why most polish kids are coming here...land of milk and honey etc


There's probably plenty of jobs in the main cities, it's everywhere else that's the problem. Plus arbitrage.

Why does it talk about emigrating and property investment? Are young people looking to emigrate because all the best properties to flip in the UK have already been flipped, and we need to foister our techniques onto unwitting societies?

Interesting list. There should be at least one caribbean country in there.

Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago (oil/gas-rich) and Barbados are all worth a look if you can handle the culture change. These countries will be needing a lot of know-how, skills and qualifications in the years ahead that young Brits can offer (education, public service, healthcare, oil industry).

Berlin is a very nice open city....so why then is their property so affordable,why do people there prefer to rent?


....is it because they did not allow a bubble to develop, therefore the people that matter the young, educated and resourceful can afford to stay living in their own country and create future growth and prosperity......you can hardly blame young people from deserting high price property bubble London to seek their fortune elsewhere now can you? ;)

Reading with interest. Feeling really stifled here in the UK at the moment and do feel like I gotta get out soon.

Mrs ska_mna has Oz Visa, so could go there tomorrow. But damn it, the Oz bubble is horrendous too. C'mon, burst already aussie bubble and I'm there!

Failing that, Germany perhaps.

EDIT: I'm a coastal-lovin chap, total water sport addict. Anyone got any recommendations?

Bogota, Colombia

Forget Colombia's reputation for crime and drug-barons. These days it has an improving security situation, huge potential for tourism and economic growth, and Bogota is a vibrant city far from the country's less stable parts. Add to this the attractiveness of the indiginous population and low property prices and you're onto a winner.

So, the writer can't spell and thinks the sh*ggability of the locals is an important factor.
Is this article from Nuts magazine or a broadsheet newspaper? It's hard to tell....

Apartment prices rising a lot in Germany but existing home prices falling:

Democorruptcy
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.

Governbankment
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and banks. It diverts public money (our taxes) to private companies (banks). George Osborne's Help to Buy Bail Banks, will see our taxes go to bankers to cover their losses on mortgages that default. The UK's Governbankment will even pay bankers "reasonable repossession fees" on Help to Bail Bank mortgages that default.

The Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS) is stealing from savers to make them pay for crimes by bankers. Via lower interest on savings, all the bank fines for PPI, LIBOR, interest rates swaps, etc. are being paid by savers so that bankers can keep pocketing bonuses. 

"We need to make a really big change: from an economy built on debt to an economy built on savings" - David Camoron Jan 2009
"Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed" - George Osborne Jan 2009
- So what do Camoron & Osborne do? Print money and leave interest rates at 0.5% when inflation is over 5%

If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

No need to sell up, the next phase of the economics cycle is going to be very positive for anyone that owns property.

All I'm sayings is, don't listen to the property bears people, they are wrong.

Jakarta? Manila? Put down the sodding crackpipe....Bland, boring, polluted, one big traffic jam and no subway or public transport. I'd pay money not to live in Jakarta. The Philippines has beautiful islands and beaches - true, but you won't see much of that in Manila. Choke on the fumes, get deafened by the endless blaring on the car horn.

There is no such thing as bravery; only degrees of fear.

Sorry, I can't.

The mighty neo liberal steam roller that crushed all before it from the 1980s to the beginning of the new millennium has morphed in recent years into a Charlie Carioli clown car that now can not go two yards without loud bangs, smoke pouring out of the engine and the doors dropping off.

What have you against Prague? I found it to be a lovely place with fairly cheap places away from the obvious tourist traps. They eat cake for breakfast there. What more could you want????
That's it, I'm getting a wall-safe.

I'd be happy if I were right but I'll settle for being Less Wrong
