#1- Announcing registration is now open for Johnny Mueller’s Jan 2020 “Expat Insider” seminar:

 #2- Meanwhile, throughout Latin America, cultural differences will prevail:

Though Spanish is spoken in all 20 Latin countries certain obvious social and cultural differences stand out. For example, can you guess which Latin country citizens are the loudest and most raucous… and which country or countries have the most low key, calm and introverted populations?

#3- Today we have the blueprint for how Latin Governments keep ruining their economies:

Basically, the Latin government philosophy is exactly like Uncle Sam’s- when in debt, borrow more.

#4- Explaining how IMF and World Bank loans make Latin politicians rich and in the end do Latin countries vastly more harm than good

#5- The Rise and Fall of Ecuador:
10 years ago I cautiously recommended Ecuador as a nice “Plan B” strategy for gringos and expats. But I also warned that any large influx of gringos would surely ruin the place... well I hate to say I told you so… but….
#6- How they buy and sell votes when election day rolls around:
DYK that the going rate to buy a vote in the Dominican Republic is 20 bucks?
It's the subject of today’s “boots on the ground” story

#7- Check out my “The Expat Files” You Tube channel. See all the fun slides and photos that go along with each show. There are now more than 150 shows posted on my YouTube channel so have a look.
