The Expat Files Show # 775 – July 22, 2018

 

 

#1- No one is the guru or expert on all that goes on in Latin America. I re-learn that lesson practically every week. Funny thing is that when you start believing you’ve got a great handle on things and maybe even become a “know it all” something happens that makes you feel like a novice or worse yet, a dolt. It’s the subject of today’s “boots on the ground story”  

#2- Astute Canadians are really getting pissed off at their dystopian government often seeing that their only alternative is to pack up and develop a Plan B.

Meanwhile the Canadian government is loosening immigration policies and more or less welcoming Latinos in like never before, including the uneducated and unskilled. And down here in Latin America the word is rapidly getting out.

#3- Today you’ll see just how the Canadian tax system controls and reigns in its citizens even more than US big Brother does.

#4- The Feds are getting serious about blocking and refusing passports to people who (they claim) owe more than $50k in back taxes. Yes, if you live in the states things are going from bad to worse… but you know that already.

#5- The big difference between Starbucks in the states and Starbucks in Latin America

#6- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your exit plan before getting boots on the ground in Latin America. Check out the free intro video to the course now at www.theexpatfiles.com/academy
