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

July 6, 2012  
- Is there anti-Semitism in Latin America? What’s the story on the Latin orthodox Jewish Community?
-Latin America has its own terrific rhythm. In every little town and village there are unbelievably talented musicians that would be stars in Cleveland, yet they’re playing in dives just for drinks in Peru. Consequently, 99.99% have day jobs, live at home with mom and dad or are starving.
-Can first world doctors who are sick of the red tape, the insurance companies, the frivolous lawsuits and oppressive Big Brother government, chuck it in and set up a medical practice in Latin America? How easy or hard is it to do/
-The ins and outs of getting permanent residency in Latin countries. When you have it, you can work any job in that country without a permit. But the fact is, most expats own their own businesses- and you DO NOT need residency at all to do that. You only need residency if you want to work for a company (er, legally and on the books that is)
-Many expats are down here to be free from certain unpleasant entities like court judgments, and the IRS for example. But once you’ve attained the free and easy life down here, should you worry about running afoul of their 77,000 pages of mind-numbing IRS double-speak (and just how long are those tentacles if you do)?
Speaking of running afoul of the IRS… what about extradition?
-Now you can follow the link on the main page at to schedule a 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.
