NZ - government policy detached from reality

Share |
The suggestion by this consultancy International Funds Services Development Group that NZ could emerge as a future financial hub is ludicrous. There is no justification for duplication services in NZ which are offered in Australia - a market with 5-6x the size, a better climate, better pay, and a broader commodity focus. It is nonsensical. Just as importantly, there is little little investment capital or investment in NZ. It is a very small market at the 'arse-end' of the world.
Anyone investing in NZ will be doing so for only one of five reasons:
1. Domestic ties - the type of business that will always need to be local, i.e. cafes, restaurants
2. Raw material production & processing - natural resources with or without processing if competitive. i.e. Some materials are too low value or bulky without processing, i.e. iron ore, or high value commodities where transport is a low cost penalty.
3. Low cost competitiveness - The best example is consulting services or call centres. NZ has a technology and price advantage, i.e. NZ is the lowest cost OECD country in the world, so you'd have to wonder why they are not building call centres for higher value servicing than can be performed by Filipinos. It could service foreign markets when they would have to pay overtime or late night salary rates.
4. Lifestyle industries like tourism, etc.
5. High value manufacturing and servicing like niche hospital equipment designs, taxi despatching systems, GPS software. For example, consider the following example of seismic monitoring systems.

These industries are hard to create unless you know something about the world. I would encourage NZ'ers to get out in the real world, the active, industrialised countries and learn what these countries are doing. It is not enough to read newspapers and online, you need to live in these places.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
