We were all lucky to be born at the right time. Over the past 50 years, world GDP growth has been averaging 3.6 per cent, driven by employment increases and productivity improvements in roughly equal proportions. An exhaustive and important study by the McKinsey Global Institute concludes that over the next 50 years, population growth will decline to 0.3 per cent annually.

Tasmanian tourism operators have taken out seven of the top ten awards at the national industry awards ceremony for 2014.

Of the total 29 awards handed out, Tassie took away ten gold, three silver and three bronze — recognition for the “record number of Australian and overseas visitors” the state has been receiving, according to Tourism Tasmania chief executive John Fitzgerald.

Among the winners were historical sites, cruise companies and cultural festivals, some of which won multiple gold awards.

13 Reasons You Need To Visit Budapest Hungary ASAP.  Europe is mind-blowingly cheap right now. The euro is nearly equal to the dollar (for now), and flight prices are largely on the decline, too. Even many hotel costs are pointing downward, making this quite possibly the most budget-friendly time to visit Europe in years. 

And of all the picturesque places to choose from, we've got a special eye on Budapest. This backpacker-friendly city is a top pick for more reasons than one. Allow us to explain...

Diversity in International Education.  Recent news articles about the need for Australian international education and providers to diversify away from an over dependence upon developed markets in Asia:

From The Fairfax Australia: ‘Education sector urged to look to Latin America to turn around slump in international students.  Australia should look beyond the Asia-Pacific and lure more international students from Latin America and the Middle East to study at local campuses, according to a major federal government review of the $16 billion international education sector.

From The Guardian: ‘Australia must look to world's emerging markets for foreign students, report says.  Draft strategy encourages universities to focus on recruiting more students from Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, and improving students’ experiences.  Tertiary education institutions should look to emerging markets in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East in order to keep Australia in the top five destination countries for foreign students, a new government report said.

Why migrants may be our greatest economic asset. Forget the myths. Migrants lift the three "Ps" of high economic growth - population, participation and productivity. So maybe we need to increase our intake, writes Patrick Carvalho.

International Education Strategy - UK Net Migration Change

Article from THES The Times Higher Education Supplement about issues of net overseas migration, immigration, population and visas for international education.

‘Consensus on net migration change, says MP.  Labour’s Paul Blomfield believes change could happen even if Tories lead government after general election.

Students could be removed from the net migration target shortly after the general election even if a Tory-led government is elected, a leading parliamentarian has suggested.
