Doug Casey, the noted economist, best-selling financial author, international investor, entrepreneur and the founder of Casey Research, gives his views on investing in Argentine Real Estate
Doug Casey, the noted economist, best-selling financial author, international investor, entrepreneur and the founder of Casey Research, had the following to say about investing in Argentine real estate: “I think what’s going to happen, given the demographics we spoke of in Europe, is that thousands and thousands of Europeans are going to come to Argentina. Not poor ones, the kind who immigrated a hundred years ago, but wealthy ones. #adp02
They’ll see that the lifestyle is better in Argentina. It’s less crowded and vastly cheaper – maybe 20%, or less, of the cost of living in Europe. And they can live there tax-free. As more and more Europeans discover this, you’re going to have a lot more of them piling in. This is going to happen with Americans too, though they won’t gain the same tax advantages. The IRS will still want to tax them; nevertheless, I think we’ll see more of them moving down there. It’s very popular with Canadians as well.
With the good things happening in Colombia, Brazil having finally turned the corner, and the problems clowns like Chavez in Venezuela are running into, there’s a chance that South America, in general, could be the next sleeper that may soon awake to its day in the sun.
So, it’s a place with a future. And any person who does not diversify his or her assets and physical presence, geographically and politically, in today’s world is a fool. If they see what we see and don’t take action, they’ll get what they deserve.
It’s especially important for US persons to do this now, before we see foreign exchange controls in the US making it impossible, or very costly, to get your wealth out of the country.”
