"The US earned low marks because of its taxation stance toward nonresidents and the world's perception of America….'A US citizen that has to pay tax on their worldwide income, and abide by a bunch of regulations, and whose emails can be spied on - that passport might be a little less valuable than an equivalent European passport that doesn't have some of those other restrictions.'" via @business

Join us, Wednesday, Aug 22nd at 12pm EST, for the FREE webinar from SDFCU, The Psychology of Spending.

"Do you ever wonder why you left the mall with $500 worth of clothes when you were not planning to get anything or bought one pair of shoes over another? It is not just personal preference. Psychologists have found that there are several forces that govern our consumer behavior and cause us to make decisions that are not necessarily rational or in our best interest. However, understanding why we buy what we buy can help us make better decisions in the future.
Why is it important to make smart spending decisions? Overspending can take away from important saving goals, like a down payment for a house, college, or retirement.

Join us for this 45-minute webinar as we cover factors that commonly affect the psychology of our spending, including:
•The Role of Advertising
•Keeping Up With the Joneses
•Spending Habits
•Impulse Buying
•Bargain Hunting
•Retail Therapy
•Money as Love
•I’ll Worry About Tomorrow Tomorrow

This free webinar is open to members and non-members of SDFCU. All are welcome to join us. Please be advised if you are attending from your computer at school or work, for security reasons, some school and work/government computers may disable access to this Go-to-Webinar page; we recommend testing beforehand, and utilizing your personal devices instead, should you encounter problems"

"WEP was enacted to ensure that government employees who had not paid into Social Security received a Social Security benefit equivalent, with the government pension taken into account, to that of an individual who had paid into Social Security…But unfortunately, these provisions in practice have proved to be both unfair and unworkable..." and they affect American overseas drawing on foreign pensions. via @NCPSSM

"From millennials to baby boomers, more Americans are ditching their jobs or retiring — and then fleeing overseas. A whopping 8.7 million Americans are living in other countries, based on US State Department figures...And that number is only rising...The appeal? An increasing number of places with strong infrastructure, good technology and — a major selling point — a much lower cost of living than in the United States." via @nypost

"Expatriation from the USA isn’t just confined to expat professionals and retirees, it’s the cool thing to do for millennials and baby boomers sick of struggling to make ends meet on a decent salary and concerned about the country’s political future. Necessities are a strong infrastructure, good quality technology and a chance to start again in a new land." via emigrate.co.uk
