I don't believe that Wanderer has ever posted here. But he has posted a lot at the Motley Fool site, at the NoFeeBoards.com site, and at the radd-pages.com site. So there are no doubt a number here who will be interested to know that he has had an article published in the Journal of Financial Planning on expat living.
Executive Summary: "Millions of Americans work abroad, and the number is expected to grow. Planners need to be aware of the financial benefits of expatriates working in low-tax countries—and even in higher-tax nations: good compensation and benefit packages, long-term wealth-building opportunities, and enhanced career path, among others. To illustrate the benefits and costs, the article focuses on a single low-tax nation—the United Arab Emirates, where the authors live."
