Why Many Have Left America
You look out your window, past your gardener, who is busily pruning the lemon, cherry and fig trees… amidst the splendor of gardenias, hibiscus and hollyhocks.
The sky is clear blue. The sea is a deeper blue, sparkling with sunlight.
A gentle breeze comes drifting in from the ocean, clean and refreshing, as your maid brings breakfast in bed.
For a moment, you think you have died and gone to heaven.
But this paradise is real. And affordable. In fact, it costs only half as much to live this dream lifestyle… as it would to stay in your own home!
The year was 1979.
With these words, Agora founder Bill Bonner inspired countless Americans…
Americans who were after the good life — but could not afford it in these United States.
Mr. Bonner introduced them to the possibilities of international living, where the living was good… and the living was cheap.
Why anchor yourself down when the wide, spacious world was yours for the asking?
And when you could get the full worth of your money somewhere else?
Thousands of Americans have since heeded Bill’s call…
They boxed their belongings, shook the native dust from their shoes… and winged off in pursuit of a dream…
To concealed gems in Central America, South America, Asia, Australia… and Europe…
To bypassed beaches… to majestic mountains… to sparkling cities.
Many never glanced backward.
Today the world beyond offers Americans more bounty, more opportunity than ever.
Perhaps you would like to take it in. But you are unable — or unwilling — to move abroad.
You are not alone.
But worry not. For today we bear excellent news.
You do not have to pull up your roots… to follow your rainbow.
You can take full advantage of opportunity abroad — and vastly accelerate your retirement — without having to move away.
