Looks like google translate strikes again. Have you ever tried it? It is great for a laugh...just copy and paste text from a language you do not know and tell it to translate into a language you do know.....then prepare to laugh

Actually this isn't useless at all... In the lead up to the recent election we were bombarded with reports about how bad Australia was financially and how it was all the fault of the previous government etc... Not that I want to turn this into a political discussion, but it seems that financially we are pretty damn well off compared with the rest of the world... :thumbright:

http://www.australianbusinessreport.com ... t-2013.pdf

Quote:
In US dollar terms, household wealth in Australia grew rapidly between 2000 and 2013, apart from a brief interlude in 2008.

The average annual growth rate has been 13%, but about half of the rise is due to exchange rate appreciation. Using constant exchange rates, wealth has grown on average by just 3.3% per annum since 2007. Despite this recent slowdown, Australia’s wealth per adult in 2013 is USD 402,600, the second highest in the world after Switzerland. Even more strikingly, its median wealth of USD 219,500 is the highest in the world.

Interestingly, the composition of wealth is heavily skewed towards real assets, which amount on average to USD 294,100 and form 59% of gross household assets. This average level of real assets is the second highest in the world after Norway. In part, it reflects a sparsely populated country with a large endowment of land and natural resources, but it is also a manifestation of high urban real estate prices.

Compared to the rest of the world, very few Australians have net worth below USD 10,000. One reason for this is relatively low credit card and student loan debt. The proportion of those with wealth above USD 100,000 is the highest of any country – eight times the world average. With 1,762,000 people in the top 1% of global wealth holders, Australia accounts for 3.8% of this wealthy group, despite having just 0.4% of the world’s adult population.

A better way is to take something in English, translate it into a foreign language, then copy/paste the result and translate back to English.

e.g.
