Europe's looking dicey. France--with Hollande? Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece about to implode. Switzerland probably won't have the average well-off person. Heck, rich Chinese are moving their funds here and to Canada (look at Vancouver real estate.)
Greedy, class warfare consumed and debt-ridden governments are on the rise, and you can't keep it under a mattress.
O is striking at a time when good options are limited.
Financially, it’s hard to beat Singapore. The environs, a little less nice, and they do have a socially nanny state.
They need look no further than Central America; they still have capitalism down there, and would appreciate some capital in their economies.
Canada is looking like the best option. We’re right next door and long-term economic prospects are good. We’ll take a hit from the US recession but resource exports to Asia should soften the blow. Businesses moving here will have the advantage of our lower corporate tax rates while Obamacare will erase the US advantage on payroll taxes.
