Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1030, FRI, FEB 12 (02-12-21)

The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, just when things were calming down, the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) have once again decided to arbitrarily place heavier restrictions on airports and arbitrarily imposing new lockdown restrictions (i.e. Soviet style house arrests). The excuse this time being an imminent so-called 2nd wave. Stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates- (estimated to be in March or April) when US and Latin America airports start accepting the cheap (1 to 3 dollar) rapid 5 minute paper strip Cov-idiot test that is now used and widely accepted in Asia and Europe and projected to be in international use in March or April .  
#1- Will your electonic and personal stuff suffer in the humidity and heat of a Tropical Climate?
How to manage extreme tropical temperatures and humidity. How Latin climates effect your personal items and delicate electronic equipment and what you can do about it
#2- The maintenance problem in Latin America:
In Latin America it’s ridiculously apparent that product maintenance is lax to nonexistent. Today we hash it out, explaining how in a certain situations product maintenance is somehow rigidly observed.     
#3- Can you guess the two biggest health problems affecting lower middle-class and poor Latinos?
Today we discuss two giant problems and how they can be easily managed and even eliminated
#4- Besides money, what kind of gifts will your workers really appreciate?
Gringos and Expats are known to be generous with their maids, gardeners and maintenance guys. Today we discuss the best and worst gifts you can give them.
#5- When listeners scold me:
Yes, I often get reproached for my opinions and get occasional hate mail:
But then again, fighter pilots always say you get the most flack when you’re right over the target..
#6- Crypto and Bitcoin haters:
Its funny how crypto hate mostly emanates from people who were too chicken or indecisive to pull the trigger. We've all had countless opportunities to dip a toe in the crypto waters. Ever since 2013, when Bitcoin was around 200 bucks, I've been repeatedly laying out the case for crypto on this show. And now that Elon Musk is in, the train may have left the station. You had 7 years to pull the trigger, to jump on board the most amazing run-up in a lifetime. Sadly, some people who never got on board keep crying Ponzi scheme, an talk about criminals and terrorist financing. But we know inside, the haters are secretly kicking themselves.    
#7- Get a 100% legal (and well respected) 2nd Country Passport online and in just 60 days!
The Corona virus has killed Latin American and Caribbean Island tourism so tax revenues have dried up. Governments are broke and a small few have reacted by offering passport by investment programs. I have personally vetted the best legit one. Amazingly, you can apply online without wasting time or repeatedly flying back and forth to the country. That’s a first! For details email; f and listen to the complete explanation outlined in “The Expat Files” show program aired on June 28, 2020.        


#8- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
Our own Captain Mango has developed a unique one-on-one Crypto consulting and training service (he’s been deep into crypto since 2013). To get started, email him at:
