Re: SA Economy

Another sad article.. Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show greater Adelaide area population grew by just 10,421 in 2016 ASPIRATIONS to grow Adelaide’s population to almost two million by 2045 may not be realised until two decades later, new figures show. Despite the State Government lowering...

Re: How did Victoria grow?

Melbourne raced at breakneck speed in 1870 towards becoming the second biggest city in the British Empire, and few things better underline the manner in which money and people force change than the old railway maps. The railway network of nearly 150 years ago showcased just three regional lines: on...

Re: How did Victoria grow?

Economic strength is largely a function of population growth. Victoria's strength in recent years has been a function of their burgeoning population, primarily driven by overseas arrivals and compounded by interstate movements. Back of the envelope - 66k migrants arrive in NSW every year, 55k into ...

Re: How did Victoria grow?

So if population growth is not what ADL aiming for, the only savior would be job/ industry boom. So far.... it's pretty much non-existent.... :( :( :( Tasmania hasn't got the population but they have strong potentials of footings.... Canberra is small but its got federal jobs..... Brisbane's got pop...

Re: How did Victoria grow?

So, it's the fact that Melb has been endlessly gaining population growth throughout the past decades and decades, that makes companies around the world willing to invest in the city today, regardless the fact that it's so close to Sydney?

Re: How did Victoria grow?

Simple. The majority of Victorians aren't scared of change and progress and a growing evolving city. The majority of South Australian's are content with things as they are. Two different mentalities prevail in both states and cities. It's that mentality that gives us the shit for brains political l...

Re: How did Victoria grow?

So to sum it up, it's mostly due to the fact that they had a good start in early ages....attracting lots of money and people in, and the fact that they keep progressing and growing to become the size of today.... Sounds like San Fran?... At least one thing they done right was... they keep moving for...

How did Victoria grow?

Just out of curiosity, can someone explain the history of how Victoria become the 2nd largest economy of Australia? I am always puzzled... Shouldn't SA stand in best location in the middle of Australia, with close proximity to all other states? Why would a company having a headquarter in Sydney stil...

Apartments built in the mall can't be anymore common in Asia, I mean... ADL or aussies really need to go out to the world and open their eyes. Asians are so used to living close to shopping amenities. The closer it is, the better (yeah I know we are bunch of lazy bastar*s), but that's how we have so...
