RE: Stereophile / Do Your Homework

Or it could be the Swiss Franc got stronger. I don't know as I don't follow world currencies.

I live in Hong Kong and the HKD is tied to the US dollar. As a Canadian I moved to Hong Kong in 2011 and 1 Canadian was worth $7.8HKD now it buy's $6HKD. So, needless to say I am VERY happy since I basically got a 25% pay raise in the currency difference. Paid that student loan off in four years (would have take 20 years teaching in Canada or the US. Glad I turned the US job down and the UK job and the Dubai job.

It's not a bad idea for Americans to explore retiring abroad. The dollar goes further - medical bills will be much cheaper and with medicaid and medicare and SS about to be completely gutted over the next couple of years heading to New Zealand or Thailand etc might be a good idea.
