I have been reading the posts on US foreign policy. I think part of being an expat is to leave your country for what is considered greener pastures. All the time I hear in the media of the economy being bad, how people are pissed off at Bush, how invading Iraq was a bad idea, etc. I have read of economists and political analysts predicting a market crash within the next 5-10 years. It is safe to say that now is a good time to leave the US for other parts of the world.....whether it be BA or somewhere else. My question is will countries like Argentina or otherwise be a little more stricter with letting in Americans as expats in the coming years? If things get really bad in the US, will countries start blocking their borders from letting other people in? At some point, if their is a mass exodus......other countries are not wanting to be bothered or involved in our hardships. Especially like Argentina where it is not solely dependant on the US for resources.
