You can forget getting an Australian visa


My company is working on mine. I'm hoping to be out of here in 6 months. If you are an engineer Australia literally will blow you to get you over there, it's awesome. I'm using my company to expedite it and then I don't know if I'm ever coming back hahaha.

This might be true, I just don't know though.

I know unemployment is high and inflation I looming, but we're not currently much worse off than we were in the early 70s.

I think that odds are, we will slog along in this manner, make very slow and hard-fought gains in GDP and employment for the next 5-10 years. Then things will be "OK" again. Not "1998 great" but maybe "2005 OK".

Just my $0.02.

Personally, I don't ever want to retire. I really think I would get bored after a few months. But I want to have a job where at a certain age I can just be the name of the company and come and go as I please for the most part, leaving the managing and all that to others.

The best way is to hedge EVERYTHING. Diversify to the max. Assets, currencies, equities, etc. Do it in multiple countries, and dont put more than couple eggs in any 1 basket.


Yup. Serious question: How would one go about opening a bank savings account in Canada? How about buying stocks and mutual funds in Canada?

Costa or Belize would be at the top of my list if I were to go that route. Went to Belize a couple years ago. Lots of Americans there, most started little buisnesses and are making bank.

Go to canada and open an account, and then transfer your money electronically, or write a check.

Most of the major trading platforms and some brokerage houses will allow you to trade on foreign exchanges.

I also mean real estate in foreign countries, safety deposit boxes with multiple currencies, gold, silver, etc.

If you can think of a way to further diversify your base, you will be better able to weather whatever storm hits.

Getting a sponsor company makes it easier. I have 3 companies that have offered to do so. Just Can't pull the trigger and leave family behind. It is a great country

Try starting a savings account! If you save for thirty years you will not have a problem. Quit pissing your money away.
