So, there must be a solid media-traffic reason why it has shifted from the political hurricanes taking place in New York City and Inside the Beltway to the real one gathering force in Central America.
The reason could be to lower the intensity of the post-election frenzy as we enter the long holiday weekend. Send an email and you will probably get back an automated response that the professional is on vacation this week.
Well. the hurricane is Otto. He is supposed to hit Central American countries such as Costa Rica and Panama. Here is the link.
This weather threat could be of interest to those toying with the idea of retiring abroad. Central America is being promoted as ideal for American expats.
Actually, a new industry has taken root providing information and services to those wanting to know more about this option or who have already taken it.
One such service is healthcare insurance since Medicare isn't usually portable. In a country like Ecuador you can eventually become a member of the national healthcare system. The fee is about $70 a month.
But in most others, unless you marry a citizen, you frequently have three options. They are to pay through the nose for healthcare insurance, have the resources to leave the country to obtain medical treatment, or be lucky enough to begin your new life in a nation with low-cost quality healthcare that you can consume on a pay-as-you-go basis.
If Otto is a disaster, those who had been focusing on Central America might decide to give up the expat dream. There is low-cost living in the U.S. and, of course, Medicare is accepted.
Perhaps the Drudge Report is aware how much "outsourcing" one's retirement has been on the minds of the aging. That could be why it zeroed in on Otto.
