    Hi All,

    I've just seen this article and wondering if we are heading into World War 3 (nuclear war) and wanting to get some opinions on what would affect the property market and whether we should continue buying.

    news.com is not a source I would read as gospel.

    Should a nuclear war occur, I for one would not be caring much about the value of property.

    You should sell all your property to me I will give you a discounted rate but it will be worth more than when Armageddon happens.

    I can confirm that yes we are headed into world war 3. Perth is the market you should be getting into because it is at the bottom of the cycle and and will be the only decent place left after the east coast gets nuked.

    i laugh at this..

    If it was some kind of war with north korea, thats a bit more believable..but not with russia.
    As much as a strongman putin is, he is driven by his ego like trump, but neither are so mad as to start a war.
    However, the newspapers are doing the right thing- sensational news to sell papers. Either put in WW3 as the headline, or have some pics of nude women- either of them will work to sell the most. Both are tried and true strategies that yield maximum revenue. Been proven over time.

    A few shrewd investors became exceedingly wealthy buying during the great depression and WW2 - I did have a lecturer back in university whose family wealth was built doing just this. This meant they were all receipts of a substantial income from their family trust, so had the flexibility to do what they wanted for enjoyment, than for $.

    As the WW3 - not going to happen, all just posturing.

    If you're truly concerned about it invest in G&B - Guns and (tins of) beans.

    We'd get the farm back from any country which has landholdings in Oz but was on the wrong side of the argument.

    If a nuclear war occurs, most people will be more concerned about putting food on the table even if they're not directly exposed to the conflict. Every economy on the planet would likely be ruined.

    Exactly! Anyone with a genuine concern of such a remote yet catastrophic event occurring should be more concerned with self reliance issues.

    Cultivatable land, food source, water supply & energy independence.... the "off-grid" lifestylers would become the envy of all instead of the those with the 200k car sitting in their 2M house, with no water, electricity, gas or food. Sometimes being is worth more than having...

    Forget Russia, I'm more concerned about China and the South China Sea issue. I truly believe that this is the region where the next conflict/war will happen... if it comes to that.

    Japan recently announced they'll be conducting patrols in this region and China pretty much dared it to do so. I also read somewhere recently about some American General urging Australia to conduct its own patrols in the area.

    Neither side (China vs US, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam etc) is backing down from their claims/counter claims so this has me pretty worried.

    Crazy world we live in.

    Hi Wonderful people,

    Sorry for the delay. I was working and busy with kids.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.
    With recent event of Brexit, South see of China, ISIS and other wars I think it is possible that we might be heading into World War.

    After reading your posts I am now confident to get more properties :)

    Yes, but not all governments and world and religious leaders are that rational, nor do they all act in the interests of their own people.

    Conflict is a very effective way of distracting the population from a governments own inadequacies.

    It's fairly easy to argue that the US invaded Iraq to avoid an impending recession. All it did was delay a recession and made 2008 so much worse.

    We talk a lot about fighting for our freedom in the war on terror. In reality the 'free countries' are under much more surveillance than ever. The chances of being killed in an attack are lower than they were in the 70s, but we're more paranoid than ever. Fewer children are abducted than ever, but every male is considered a threat if the parents don't know them.

    Crazy world we live in.
