    For example moving to another country where the US dollar goes the furthest? If you have a method that can make you $200*/day, that can really go far in some other countries, no?


    Whats a country where they will give you the most foreign currency for the dollar? Some place that is livable though. Maybe a spanish speaking country cuz i can communicate in spanish. Is this a good idea if all your income comes from internet marketing?

    Not a good idea, if you're [only] earning an average around $100 per day with no asset foundation offline, it would probably be best you stay in a first world country.

    Once i'm 18, i should be making enough coin online to move to another country. IMO, US sucks, overpriced stuff, blah. I'm moving to either Phillipines(1 year tourist visas O_O), colombia, Thailand, or some other warm place. If you have a bank account setup in the US, affiliate companies will accept you and you can just transfer money or withdraw with a debit. You can get a nice 2 bedroom house for like 300-400 a month. Where i'm from, 300 a month is a crappy apartment.

    try Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, actually, only Malaysia you can get first world kinda leaving for cheap. For 3k usd a month, you can do a lot, but not enough to justify leaving your first world country.

    You guys should aim for 1k a day, not 100 a day, and get a penthouse in the middle of Manhattan.

    I think about this all the time.... I would love to move to China or India but.... I have a wife and kids and they never want to move. I live in Australia and living is not bad at all. One big problem you will have is getting a visa most places you need to have a lot of money in the bank before they will give you a permanent visa. I am sure in a few more years when all my kids have moves out I will go and live in China and India for a few months anyway.

    I would never consider living abroad regardless of how much money I had or was making. Without a doubt, the greatest country on the planet at the current time is the US. I know this statement may anger some people, but it is still true.

    If the circumstances change in the future, I may consider it. Just not right now for any reason. The line forms behind the US. The rest can adjust themselves as they see fit.

    If you live here in the Philippines, don't forget to visit popular places here like boracay or puerto gallera..

    I'm thinking to work in australia or US, but still I want to come back in my hometown and live here with my family :)

    maybe in US you can tell them all kind of costs :) ( dunno how close they look) but here they will turn every fking rock :p and you get harder punishment for tax crime than child rape or atleast rape in general, so wtf

    i lived a couple years in germany... and i'll be moving soon in Uk for a short time (6 months for the beginning). I like living in other countries, not just traveling-i also travel a lot for short period of times-, it gives you a nice feeling seeing different cultures first hand.

    Of course you need to make good money online, so whenever you feel like you want to move you do not need to worry about finances.

    The US isn't perfect but it sure as hell is one of the best countries to live overall unless you move to a more expensive one. It's really fun to visit other countries, and try out the best they have to offer however if you live outside the us you simply have a lot less opportunities. A quick example is how it's generally harder to get accepted by CPA networks.

    If you're making your income online you could also consider becoming a PT (Perpetual Tourist). Here's a few listings in the Philippines for US $500 p/m that seem ok.

    Might be good for consideration, vacation, etc. Would have to do more research into the area before committing but it seems you can get a somewhat decent place for $500-750 p/m. Bahamas out island rentals are comparably cheap as well.

    I lived in the US for 10 years, and I moved back. In my opinion the US sucks. :p

    Now, this is precisely why you can't ask this kind if question and get good answers. It's different for every person. This guy says the US is the best, I say it sucks. Who's right? Nobody. It's like asking what kind if food is the best. The country you like is the country you like. Know what I'm saying?

    As far as the US dollar going further. Well..The current RUB-USD is like 36-1. Does that mean everything is cheaper here? No. Prices are still based on the USD and EUR. Instead of paying $10,000 for a car, you pay 360,000 RUB. :/

    Other than US, where all did you lived in the past? No offense. But I have seen too many Americans who have never left US saying this before.

    Personally I have traveled to US, Australia, Vietnam, HongKong, China, India, Maldives and Thailand. I definitely agree that US is a great country. But I doubt it is "the greatest country" to live in. :)

    You can travel the world for less than $100 a day if you know what you're doing and still live very nicely. I would want to be making more than that and make sure it is stable first, though. What I want to do (assuming the USD doesn't collapse) is travel the world and stay in each country for around a month or more...true freedom.

    A great book to read on this topic is The Four Hour Workweek (read the travel section). I posted a download link a while back here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh.../49289-timothy-ferris-four-hour-workweek.html (not trying to plug myself, but you could say I'm a fan)
