Indonesian student: "We pay tax, we contribute to the society, we deserve better" https://www.smh.com.au/business/wor...sen-public-health-crisis-20200331-p54ft8.html Go home, Morrison tells international visitors: https://www.smh.com.au/politics/fed...s-international-visitors-20200403-p54gu2.html ScoMo has mishandled this virus crisis for some time, but today I'm glad to see his clear-cut, no-nonsense reply "At this time, Australia must focus on its citizens and its residents to ensure we can maximise the economic supports that we have". Personally, I'm totally against the notion of using taxpayer money to protect overseas students, backpackers, working holiday visa holders etc. However, depending on how things play out, this can potentially lead to a (mass?) exodus that can put downward pressure on rents, stretch the balance sheets of property investors and depress home prices. The only question is the magnitude and duration of this slump. My guess is that winners could be first time home buyers who can look forward to getting into the property market at lower prices & interest rates, or renters who can choose to live in a better suburb at lower rents. Of course, this assumes they still have a secure income.
