The Gulf Times has implied yet again that Qataris are immune to inflation, have too much money to care about save any, and don’t need any financial advice. Hey, some do. It’s tiring to have the same stereotypes repeated over and over again. Believe it or not, a lot of Qataris have to work hard to get to where they are.
The article starts off with, “EXPATRIATES planning to buy houses in Qatar, should wait for a while before committing themselves, according to an international property adviser. (Nick Witty)”. Source
Apparantly Qataris don’t need this advice and it’s only the expat community that needs to benefit. Why doesn’t the article start with ‘People’? Surely I’d like to save 10-15% on property prices too right?
I understand that an expat is likely to just be temporarily investing and is more likely to live in Qatar less that a Qatari would, however an investor is an investor right?
Ah well… time for me to make my daily phonecalls and claim back my inflation money. We’re immune remember?
