Some listeners recently questioned my motive(s) for searching outside the United States for better investment opportunities. My thought process is you always aim to do best for your family. That could mean taking your money outside the country. It may include starting a business overseas and hiring non-Americans over your neighbor.

If multi national companies can legally leave the country to save on taxes, lower business costs and reap a better profit, so can the little guy. Family over country.
