Does he get 50% discount and pay tax at 46% on $30 Mil Capital Gain ?.

The public listed companies make him rich , but not to the minority shareholders !

What's your basis of 20% decline from here?
The basis has been described in past posts. Mainly because Aussie economy is commodity driven and recent rise is fueled by Chinese money. That said I have also said Australian Financial sector seemed very well managed historically so I do not expect a crash, but a substantial decline; which "substantial" to me means >20%. Asking about which capital city is like asking US property bust is different for each state, which is true to a certain extent but inconsequential.
 
If I know the ending time, not to mention the exact starting time, I would not be working Smile I would be playing bitcoin. 

I've also mentioned back then that there were only 2 property bubble left: UK and Australia. Since then even HK & China has retraced and recovered; while London has started to taper as well (In US$ term it has actually peaked in 2014 since GBP lost 1/5 of value, AUD lost 30% value in US$ since 2011). With US likely to go real interest rate soon, return expectation, not only downunder, will change.

eh bitcoin >$10k liao and all the fund manager starting to load up and pile in.  Maybe foreign investors will start dumping their Aussie/Canadian/UK/HK properties and bonds and stocks and wack bitcoin. Then maybe US gov will create their own Bitcoin currency (like the E-coin in the American hacker TV series Mr Robot.) and own the world again like they did with the USD.

And if US does do rate rise, bond yields will favor massive capital outflows from higher yielding countries like Australia as the gap will be closing. I am a little skeptical on the rate rise this year though with all the recent turmoil in US politics and also recent china slowdown post communist party congress.

With response to Bloomberg’s “ The party is finally winding down for Australia’s housing market. How severe the hangover is will determine the economy’s fate for years to come, you wrote:
 
“Talked about this for more than 3 years... that's how long it can take for a bubble to burst
 
That’s why I responded by asking “Is party winding down same as bubble bursting?” in post#725.
 
Now you are saying “no crash” but a “substantial decline”.
 
But definition, if there is a bubble, then it will eventually burst. If it doesn’t, then it wasn’t a bubble to begin.
 
So was there a bubble in the first place?

RE: Australia Property
Seems like you equate Armageddon with bubble Smile

So was there a properly bubble in China?

I think there was and still is. But China like Singapore manages it instead of believing in the invisible hand to prick the bubble. Manage it and stretching it out is the difference between doubling in 3 years and doubling in 15 years, crash vs letting off steam. Obviously I believe in intervention and policy actions make a difference.

This is going to be a OOT post, but needs to be posted as it will be relevant to others as well.

hi Stocker,
Your contribution to VB.com is appreciated, for example, so of the stuff in SL thread where you updated us about happenings in SL AGM. But i think your "OW-rant" is over-repeated and needs some check. Ir-regardless of the consequences it may bring, i hope you can take note of what i mentioned, as i think any more of such "OW-rant" posts bring no value to everyone and VB.com at large.

And it is also obvious that I am also thankful I'm Singaporean rather than HKer. I always tell HKers that I don't know how they manage the stress. Roof over our head is not a want... it's a need. Appreciation should not be the primary motivation.

RE: Australia Property
Some interesting recent news that will likely have important implications for Aus property and banking sector.

Setting up a banking royal commission, sounds so fancy and british, looks like their PM initially strongly against it then suddenly backflip. Wonder what worms they will uncover... Big Grin
