The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

October 13, 2013  
#1-Today marks my 300th Expat Files show! And as you might imagine I get many requests from folks asking if I can package all of them up and provide a detailed index so folks can quickly hone in on their topic of interest. If I did that you’d have about 150 straight hours of Expat Files audio! The good news is that a dedicated friend of the program living up in the UK is working on the hardest part; putting together a comprehensive cross reference and index.
You already know that in any given half hour I might hit on ten or more convoluted topics so proper indexing will take real patience and determination. And hopefully, if our good man in the UK can plow through it without getting carpal tunnel or brain fatigue, the whole project could be available soon. As Brian Wilson once said, "wouldn't it be nice…"     

#2-Get ready for a big increase the general level of US harassment when you try to leave the states. US immigration will be treating you more and more like a criminal even if you’re on a simple vacation to Cancun. So, why is it getting more and more difficult and complicated to leave the Big Brother paradise? Why its because the government is dead broke and must keep track of the middle-class cows to be milked, naturally. Don't you know its dangerous for dumb animals to get a taste of freedom?
Bottom line- if you don’t get a “get out of dodge” plan together soon … within a year or so there's a good chance the door will get slammed in your face.    
 
#3-Here’s the “real” story (one the US media never reports) about Mexican cartels, drugs,and the escalating chaos and crime against expats and foreigners. A report on the present Mexico situation and why its a very bad place for expats to live and invest, why its broken it can’t be fixed and why it will only get worse.  
 
#4-A day in the life of a very happy and contented Latin middle-class family of five. How is it possible that they have almost all the usual first-world amenities including two cars (though used) all on only $1000 a month?   
 
#5-“AN EXPAT’S GUIDE TO FIRST-WORLD  HEALTHCARE IN LATIN AMERICA”That’s the name of my long awaited free report. It’s finally finished and will be available for a time at www.ExpatWisdom.com. Grab a copy and than compare how 21st century Latin American healthcare stacks up to your Heathcare in the states. Read it and weep! And remember the report is free(at least for now).
 
#6-Follow the link on the main page at www.ExpatWisdom.com to schedule a private consultation with me. If you want to discuss the details of living, working, playing, doing business and/or retiring in Latin America, now you and I can talk about your situation one on one.
