A Couple of Articles Worth Reading

Last week I posted two articles that you may find interesting — and just wanted to make sure you actually received them.

If you didn’t get a chance to look at them then … here are the links to the full articles

“*Economy tipped to enter new Golden Age*”:http://commercialpropertymadeeasy.com/2006/11/17/economy-tipped-to-enter-new-golden-age

One of Australia’s leading economic forecasters has predicted a new golden age of growth for the economy as the problems of worker shortages and production bottlenecks are solved amid a continuing boom in demand for commodities.

Canberra-based consultancy Access Economics predicts Australia’s gross domestic product will soar 4.6 per cent in 2007, compared with just 2.9 per cent this year, representing the strongest annual growth rate since 1997-98.

Recent 2-day Property Seminar

A couple of weekends ago, I spoke at a 2-day Seminar in Sydney organised by Wealth Creator Magazine. My session was all about the *Emerging Trends in Commercial Property*.

As a regular subscriber, you are pretty much kept up to date with those trends through the eBulletins you receive — and now, via these regular Updates. However, several people at the seminar showed a keen interest in how you go about successfully structuring an acquisition.
