Global Property Investing

Coconut Profits

June 3, 2011, Fortaleza, Brazil: Fortaleza, Brazil, can be an ideal place for an investment in productive, agricultural land.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I've written in the past about my general concerns related to the Brazil real estate investment market. Not because I don't think there's money to be made here, but because it's a difficult market to navigate. You've got language issues, currency issues, and issues to do with moving money in and out. Bottom line, this market is more complicated than the typical small investor is prepared for. The costs of investing here, in terms of both time and money, can easily eat up any profits you might otherwise realize.

Travel In Lviv, Ukraine

The World's Best Travel Base

May 31, 2011, Western Ukraine: Western Ukraine could be the world’s best travel base.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"My friend Ivan and I were on a bus in Ukraine," writes Intrepid Correspondent Paul Terhorst, "Ivan in front. I was sitting a few seats back, and found myself in the middle of an emotional drama. An elderly couple boarded; the woman sat next to me.

"The man--call him the husband--carefully placed her bags where she could get them, made sure she was comfortable. But she stared straight ahead all the time, without any sign of affection, without even a sign of recognition. Still, the husband stayed on, looking at her, waiting for a response, any response.


Business Opportunity In Panama

Why This Is The Best Place In The World To Start A Business Today

May 30, 2011, Panama City, Panama: Panama’s new business investment zone, Panama Pacifico, is the best place to start a business in Panama.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Set yourself up properly, and you'll be liable for no corporate tax. Not in Panama and not anywhere else either (including, you may be wondering if you're an American, in the United States).

That's a big reason why Panama is the #1 place in the world right now to start an online or e-commerce business. It's also the best place to base yourself if you want to make a living from consulting, travel writing, copywriting, or any other laptop-based profession you can think of.
