things have ushered us into a world without borders... the end of the cold
war and the advent of the world wide web of global communications &
commerce. Today it doesn't make a great deal of
difference where in the world we are located, we can carry on some types
of commerce from anywhere; from an island in the middle of the Caribbean
to a sheep ranch in the the Australian outback. A game of global musical
chairs has begun, and we are now changing places with people willing to
go to America or the UK to work for a wage we no longer consider attractive,
while we begin to move further afield in search of greener pastures. Many
of us are now looking for what might be called a 'life.' Tomorrow,
it will make a great deal of difference where we live. But certainly not
in the same sense as we now perceive it. As one writer put it, "those folks
who buy that ranch in Argentina today are going to have grandchildren who
will think they were genius."
- Metric - Imperial & Other Conversions
- Conversions of Length, Velocity, Mass, Weight, Temperature, Capacity,
Volume, Density, Area. - Isn't it frustrating when someone tells you that
it's 30° Celsius, and you don't know have a clue to what that means,
because your brain is in Fahrenheit? Or you're in a dynamite clothing store
in Milan, and you don't know what the sizes are because everything is in
Italian sizes, which differ from the size designation you're accustomed
to. We've got an index here with 16 pages of conversion engines.
They are simple web engines that will convert Metric to Imperial and also
do other types of conversions.

Markets of the World - World's Stock Markets
- Stock Markets of the World Listed by Country in Alphabetical order; part
of our asset protection index. How many stock markets in the world? We
have heard numerous estimates, but no definitive answers. Interestingly,
some markets do better than the tried & true. Brazil came out of nowhere
and stunned the world with a run up that showed no signs of leveling off.
When we started this website, China wasn't even a contender.
for Expats - International Relocation Reports
- Offshore Investment Reports - Reports On Offshore Real Estate, Moving
Overseas, and a wide range of subjects for those seeking to restart
their lives overseas. eBooks are a great idea. Consider
This: If, for example, you are trying to figure out how to move to Bolivia,
buy a ranch, get residency and a passport; you won't find a standard book
on how to go about accomplishing those ends at your local library.
You will here. We have hundreds of great eBooks lined up and coming
your way. Diamond mining in Africa, play the European lottery, where
the odds are ten times better than the USA, Homestead in Belize, Moving
to Thailand, Working Worldwide from a lap... our list of titles is

- Free Trade Zones Worldwide - Manufacturing Zones Around the World -
- Listed by Country Name in Alphabetical Order - Free Trade Zones Are Not
Just For The Big Boys - A free trade zone (FTZ) or export processing zone
(EPZ) is one or more special areas of a country where some normal trade
barriers such as tariffs and quotas are eliminated and bureaucratic requirements
are lowered. Such zones allow tremendous labor and tax savings. They don't
have to be used strictly by large manufacturers; they can be used by individuals
who want to import / export, and by those who want to sell products from
offshore using the best possible infrastructure - good shipping, good telephone
systems, good facilities.
Real Estate Marketplace - Current Listings
- International Real Estate Marketplace- Current Listings -
- Bargains - Islands, Enclaves, Coast Property, Sale by Owner, Caribbean,
Panama, France, Worldwide Current Listings 24 hours a day, seven days a
week. Our claim at the inception was, "International Real Estate is set
to be the biggest and best investment market of the next several years.
Tomorrow, it will make a great deal of difference where we live. But certainly
not in the same sense as we now perceive it. Tomorrow we will live where
the best real estate exists, where the least crime and repression exists,
where population pressures have not decimated the environment and where
business is encouraged and not hindered by legislation."
Codes & Postal Codes of the World -
Postal Codes, Post Office Home Pages, Telephone Numbers Worldwide, and
other sMail addressing Issues. A postal code (known in various countries
as a post code, postcode, or ZIP code) is a series of letters and/or digits
appended to a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail. Once postal
codes were introduced, other applications became possible. Although postal
codes are usually assigned to geographical areas, special codes are sometimes
assigned to individual addresses or to institutions that receive large
volumes of mail, such as government agencies and large commercial companies.
One example is the French Cedex system.
