yeah, it was at the top of a recent list of places where people are happiest (i think? something like that)

i love england. i have lived on foreign soil, but was happy to come home. i have travelled fairly extensively too

of course, this was 20 years ago, much has changed since then


maybe i could split my time between countries. england, norway, the south of france, new york

chuckle

The Swiss people are so happy that a lot of turn too crack. That country is so divided by the rich & poor, its not even funny.

& Norway is probably one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in. A cup of coffee probably cost 8, no joke.

I would like to agree as I love nature, but they also do have the most dangerous species living in the waters, as well as the land. Just a thought of me getting eaten by a croc, shark, stung by a jelly fish, or me getting bit form a snake, or a spider, has me going gung ho about swimming in the waters, or hiking on the land.

So I guess I can agree, with you, except you have no snow, I enjoy sledding.

Re: What is the best country to live in right now?
It depends on your objective. Study the demographics and make a conscious choice. I would love a warm climate, few people very laid back where one can earn enough money to live a comfortable existence.

But, there are no places like that I have found. They are either desolate/poor or overpopulated and overrun with rich and dirt poor.

Re: What is the best country to live in right now?
Switzerland is safe and very developed but my god I'd go crazy there; too boring. And fucking expensive, as someone pointed out. I feel the same way about Singapore -- too boring, too controlled, too many laws -- but Singapore is cheaper.

Brazil, while fun to visit, wouldn't be a place I'd want to live. Surprisingly expensive place and a crazy amount of government regulation on business owners, especially if they're foreign. It's tough to make your way in Brazil as a foreigner, and they make it intentionally really fucking tough to become a citizen. The Brazilian economy is starting to roll over, too. It had its moment but there are so many problems with the way things are run there that I wouldn't know where to begin explaining them.

I don't recommend Argentina, even though I love spending time here; things fall apart on a regular basis and inflation is currently running somewhere around 30% annually.

I have to agree with the Aussies who have posted on this thread; Australia would be a pretty damn good choice at this moment in history. Yes, they have that crazy real estate bubble to contend with and the country is expensive, but there are plenty of jobs and wages are good overall. The people are great and you've got the sun, sand and surf. Nice place. Just more expensive than I'd like.

Also, Thailand should be high on anyone's list -- cheap as can be, lots to see and do, amazing food, low stress environment. I love Malaysia, too, but it's quite a bit more expensive than Thailand. Anyway, just my .02.

Re: What is the best country to live in right now?
extremely generic question

best to live as retired wealthy, as young worker, as prepper, as social system leacher?

do you want to live in a western style society as you are used too or on a rural remote paradise?

Re: What is the best country to live in right now?
Rural Canada

Our social safety net, the pension plan, has almost $200 billion surplus. It will be there to help you when you retire at 65 (probably go to 67) to the tune of about $1800 per month if that is your only income. This is unlike US Social Security which is broke. Our government can't touch it for other things.

Our government relaxed guns laws after realizing that gun control and registration does not work.

We are 1/10 the population of the USA where land is relatively cheap. I just bought 450 acres with my own private lake for $160/acre. When I retire in about another 10 years I will have enough wood to harvest to keep the money coming long after I am gone. It will be a retirement package for my kids too. This is the land of opportunity.

Country is in an economic boom where jobs in excess of 100K are a dime a dozen for skilled trades people, especially in the west (Alberta in particular).

Hi,
If you will tell, where in Canada did you buy 450 acres so cheap?

In Alberta you can buy for $100 an acre. And not some crappy land either, scenic mountain views. Country acres. Lots of forrest to go paintballing, 4x4ing etc.

Best places to live right now: Canada, USA, UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Finland, Neatherlands, Denmark, Sweden...if you want a secure economy, then Germany is the place to be...there obviously isn't a "best" place to live in though, it all depends what kind of environment etc that you are looking for in a country.
