Questions relating to expatriating and countries to seriously consider, etc. - Mark777 - 03-16-2012 09:31 PM
Every now and then on sites related to gold, silver, monetary issues information is given about expatriating to a different country other than say the US to wait out the coming mess. I've looked into different countries just a little such as Panama, Uruguay, Chile, Thailand, Singapore, etc...
I've found out that Panama is probably the cheapest place to retire and have better tasting lobster than Thailand. LOL Panama also uses the USD...don't know if that's a positive but also the language is english. Uruguay is spanish and a little more expensive. Belize speaks english and a little more expensive yet.
Have you personally done any research such as this? Can you explain what an expatriot is and the benefits and downsides of it? Any favorite countries you may consider or recommend? What about sources who may be able to help me with expatriation, passport, finding an ideal place, transporting your silver and wealth to a different country without charging an arm and a leg, any websites that have personal question and answer studies to help determine a person's ideal country/place to live, etc., that you know about or have come across?
I've never been outside the US except for brief excursions into Mexico and Canada. I'm not particullarly wealthy to visit a number of countries to find out which I like the best. My best shot I think in determining the best place for me is to do a bunch of research online. Because when the SHTF and I don't think it will be long from now it will be too late to hop on a plane or boat to escape.
I just want to know my options at this point as much as possible and have things settled in my mind when this stuff comes down. I'm not really ready to retire yet either as I'm only 52...but maybe living in a place like Panama would be a better place than the US when all this happens even if I won't have a job there......
This county's leadership currently in the White House and the congress, courts, financial institutions are killing ANY hope of recovery and only making things much worse--nobody can or wants to make the tough decisions that are sorely needed--which means we have NO leadership in this country FOR THE PEOPLE. I'm really SICK of it. My ancestors would've never come here under these conditions that's for sure.... So I'm keeping my options open....there has to be a country much better than the US at all the above points....at least I'm hoping!
