Get Paid in Dollars, Pay in Rupees, Live on Pesos

You may have heard this before — it’s the mantra of the “new rich,” the advantage of a truly global economy/life. Tim Ferris is an expert on it and discusses it in his book, which we reviewed. What this means is that most people live on the same currency, a sort of “one-dimensional” existence, so to speak: you make X US dollars a month, you live in a place that charges you X US dollars a month, and you pay your employees/contractors/etc X US dollars a month. But let’s say you still made X US dollars every month but instead of living in a medicore apartment for $1,000-$2,000/month, you lived in a beachfront house  in Mexico or somewhere in South America for less than half of what you pay for your current pad. Further, let’s say you outsource labor, using a personal assistant in India, like Ferris explains. Suddenly those US dollars you make are worth a lot more. It’s like you’ve tripled or quadruped your income. Instead of waiting until you’re old to retire and travel the world; you can do it now, as a life. You just have to figure out how to make those US dollars keep flowing in (and that’s basically what this site is about)… BTW when we say dollars, rupees , and pesos — they are just examples to illustrate the point. (When we were writing this post, our friend insisted we say Euros instead of dollars.) And who knows, maybe dollars will eventually be the new peso, the way things have been going.
