Thats a very thrilling trend indeed. Hopefully it will continue to proceed untill salaries in the province will be comparable to the ones in Moscow.

article:

"But the employee’s housing prospects significantly improve once industry moves to his home region. With 70 percent of a Moscow salary, an average college graduate can afford a mortgage in his hometown, where an apartment is a third of the price of one in Moscow. Kaluga, for example, has a market of more than 125,000 creditworthy buyers, including 25,000 employed at the region’s growing modern industrial parks."

125 000 creditworthy buyers in Kaluga? Thats a lucrative market for construction companies and real estate business...

Of course everything depends on how to estimate and who estimates such figures, but what I think they meant 125000 potential buyers in the whole Kaluga region, where picturesque territories near Moscow region are are grabbed by very creditworthy ppl. I mean VERY. I doubt that the latest would ever need a mortgage at all.

lets look at Kaluga, here it is:

would anybody like to live in such place?- hardly - even if one can afford a mortgage there and an appartment there costs one third of Moscow price - people would like to have good looks of the street they live in, opportunity to walk around and to enjoy the city (like me being priviledged to live in St.Petersburg), but what emotions can one expirience looking at those sights in Kaluga while walking around there?...Well,you can survive there, but can you enjoy it there?- I doubt it....They should start with infrastructure, there are some provincial cities even in Siberia in Russia that look muuuuuch better - here for example - Khabarovsk:

by the way, me personally would have no problem to moove for example to Yekaterinburg if I had some proffession needed for a hi-tech company providing good wages and located there, look at one more set of photos of the place:

you don't like it?- I do like it - here we have all the infrastructure in place, contemporary architecture, vibrancy etc...- sharp contrast to dilapidated sh.t hole called Kaluga (see article)

..... It is quite normal for water to run to lower levels; similarly people who can move to what they think are better countries should do so.
..... Similarly business can reduce prices here, and therefore be more competitive, by reducing their costs. Many reduce their costs by relocating most of their operations to somewhere in Asia because wage rates are lower there, causing a lot of unemployment here. BOOHOO!
