-Now some partial answers to questions I get asked repeatedly (especially from folks at my seminars). People always want to know about money transfers and how to do them in the most anonymous (and legal) way possible. Why? Because its nobody’s business where you send your money or assets or do business. And by the way: what’s considered illegal in one country is often legal in another… that’s why Bank havens have always been popular ..or were popular till the NSA started illegally collecting data on everyone and the abusive FATCA laws forced foreign banks to give up their US account holders.
-Illegal hardwood logging in Latin America: There’s a very very good chance the wood in your beloved bedroom or dining room set was obtained by hook and crook.
-Its nearly always the same when us gringo expats get invited to upscale Latin parties. We soon find each other (since we all look alike) and end up congregating and sharing our weird Latin stories. Like our famous stateside Christmas/Thanksgiving parties- where ladies eventually congregate in the kitchen, and men end up glued to the sports channels in the den- we gringo expats congregate together at parties too. Why? because even if our Spanish is pretty good, soon enough we get bored with the superficial Latin blather. But wait!… Then there are the rare times you run into a so-called Latin “intellectual” socialist (a Public university professor for example) who tries to hammer on any first world person he can find about the gringo imperialism bit (not that I’m denying it). With guys like that you can actually have a little fun…

“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).
