I have mixed blessing/curse of living in a country where people earn less than $400-500 a month, and where everything is 5 times cheaper compared to US. Not everything, technology has ~ same price,cars,electronics, i'm talking about everyday living expenses.Internet marketeers have mobility as their main advantage. Few months after discovering this forum i don't work 9-5 anymore, and i'm doing just fine. I am very happy for being my own boss and not working for slave wages offered to my fellow countryman. Question is for US and other tier1 country residents: have u ever considered moving to cheaper country as a solution for economic hardship? With $1000 /month u are social case in your country, but would be VERY comfortable in another. Rents in my country are $100-200 max , food expenses are $300 a month. IF you did consider, what is main concern, is it unknown destination, prejudice from another culture, fear of not fitting in or something else?
