Many have just stated "Time to get out!" or something along those lines and as Canada seems to be the closest and easiest for assimilation, are you thinking of coming here?
I'm not trying to start a Canada vs America thread here as I honestly believe we all want the same things deep down, but I am curious as to what people are planning when the SHTF. I am also not suggesting Canada in any way. That would be a personal choice.
I have heard a lot of Canadians actually stating the same desires for various reasons. Some being that we will be going down the same road as the US and that's a very credible theory. Others because of taxes and still others worried about climate change. So Americans are apparently not alone in the "Get Out Now" plans.
Where would you go? What are your choices and why?
According to www.expatify.com... these are the easiest places for an American to live as an Expat:
Notice that Canada isn't on the list? My guess is taxes. Yup, we got that in abundance.
10. Costa Rica
9. South Africa
3. Czech Republic
And for other criteria we have these lists:
Cities by Cost Of Living:
Rank, City, Country
NO Canada Here
1. Tokyo, Japan
2. Osaka, Japan
3. London, United Kingdom
4. Moscow, Russia
5. Seoul, South Korea
6. Geneva, Switzerland
7. Zurich, Switzerland
8. Copenhaen, Denmark
9. Hong Kong, Hong Kong
10. Oslo, Norway
Countries By Quality Of Life
Rank, Country, Score (1-10)
NO Canada Here
1. Ireland 8.333
2. Switzerland 8.068
3. Norway 8.051
4. Luxembourg 8.015
5. Sweden 7.937
6. Australia 7.925
7. Iceland 7.911
8. Italy 7.81
9. Denmark 7.796
10. Spain 7.727
See the entire list of 111 Countries here:
Honestly, I don't understand the list but there it is. For example, Seoul was so much cheaper for me to live than Canada as I ate locally and didn't live in a Western style house. But each to their own.
Countries with the Best Health Care
Retiring abroad has undeniable appeal, and a big consideration is medical care. Here are countries that ranked highest for access to quality health care:
Canada made this list!
6. South Africa
So what would be your choice? Many of course are choosing to stay because of various reasons. Family, Finances, Age, Patriotism etc. All good reasons. But for those planning on leaving...where are you thinking of landing...and what are your reasons?
