Many of the glitz high-tech and office jobs will vanish into the mists of India
My son is living back at home after obtaining his CIS degree.
Very few listings, got 2 interviews after hundreds of resumes delivered. I feel so bad for him. Seriously thinking of telling him to get some training in mine technology at the tech and maybe move to Canada!
Think I might go along if GW gets back in.
How interesting Hanky....Robin and I are very seriously considering a move to BC ourselves!
Altho we haven't picked a property yet; we've already begun to sell off our land and equipment here. We don't mind living in a 5th wheel in the hills for a while until we find "the right spot". My concern with haste is to get max $$ for everything prior to the drop....especially the land. And after the construction-crash, we'll be able to pick up Cats and excavators for half of today's price.
Imho, this is not going to be a healthy place to live in coming years...no matter what happens nov 2....

re; the markets; I came across this today....in a UK paper...
A NARROW victory for either candidate in Tuesday's American presidential election would be the worst outcome for stock markets, according to Wall Street experts.
It could suffer a fall of up to ten% if the election does not lead to a clear win for either George Bush or John Kerry, and instead becomes mired in recounts and legal battles like those of 2000.
A clear Democrat victory will see the US market fall by up to seven%, while a Republican triumph would be more or less neutral for the markets, according to anal cyst Tobias Levkovich of Smith Barney, the broking arm of giant US bank Citigroup.
I was surprised by the last para....as I think it'd be the other way...i.e. dubya win, market tanks....kerry win....neutral to down. Interesting...
