    Which Province Offers The Best Lifestyle?

    From what I have read save enough money to fly to Bangkok or Singapore and hope you don't die before you get there. I have a heart condition so I stay within 20 minutes of a good cardiac unit at all times and I don't go to Vietnam. Thailand no problems. It is my understand if you have tests done Vietnam sends them to Singapore to process. I am sure there are more knowledgeable people than I for specific questions.
  2. I have a daughter who speaks and writes English and Japanese fluently she is an international marketing rep does quite well at the bank - poorly at Math, Physics, Biology ..... I have another child speaks English, Spanish and French and I can't talk about what she does except that I can't talk about it. Her civilian counterpart makes $250,000 per year. Math bad language good. I have another kid who produces TV shows in three languages. Lots of jobs for people who are fluent in a few languages.

    The Thailand Treaty of Amity permits American companies to hold majority of the shares or the whole company, and/or branch office or representative office located in Thailand. You can incorporate in Thailand and/or America. Who told you it had to be a US based company?

    You can own 100% if you are an American.

    There is a lot of foreign investment in Thailand. 90% Of Startups Fail. 50% of marriages fail. I think those are better odds than the lottery. https://www.forbes.com/sites/neilpatel/2015/01/16/90-of-startups-will-fail-heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-10/#2f84c25e6679
  7. Of course you didn't ask the guy who he was? Did he speak Thai to the children?

    That is the point that a foreigner can come to Thailand and conduct business at the highest level.

    The whole point of mentioning his name was a challenge from a previous poster since proved wrong that I couldn't name two Americans who had done well in Thailand and I named Heinecke and Thompson (the guy who brought back Thai silk from the edge of obscurity). There are many foreign people who have made it big in Thailand and many multinational companies here. More and more they are using Thai professionals as more get educated and experience. Like anything else there are good and bad.

    Forum very slow and pages not loading

    They sell based on forum traffic. Once someone pays for an ad it don't matter if it gets clicked or not, TV has the money in pocket Don't they get google adsense?

    Heinecke was a worker and started a company not an investor. If you can turn $2000 bucks into a multi million dollar business with hard work and luck go for it. Being an investor is a whole other ball game although having said that which currency would have made a better investment in the past 5 years the baht or the pound? Didn't really take a brain trust to figure that one.

    Research shows that optimism declines with age. You can google it. We all know as we are old guys and everything is bad and falling apart.
