According to knowledgeable sources, some 350,000 Americans leave the United States every year. These figures are likely to increase significantly over the next decade as retiring Baby Boomers seek shelter from excessive bureaucracy and a shaky economy, and look for a way to protect their eroding personal wealth. Is expatriation the answer?

This intriguing book shows how to successfully expatriate one's funds, assets, and even oneself and one's family, for safety, profit, privacy, and an inexpensive, better life.

The idea of moving to a new country has always been of interest to adventurous beings who relish the notion of basking in a beautiful place where one can live like a king for dimes on the dollar. The dream is achievable, but only if you first safely move your assets. That is what Freedom Without Borders: How to Invest, Expatriate, and Retire Overseas for Personal and Financial Success is all about.

Written for anyone seriously concerned about strategies for protecting assets, as well as lifestyle, this comprehensive guide covers everything one needs to know to do that successfully outside of the United States. The book focuses on personal finance considerations for those contemplating moving or investing abroad, rather than on culture aspects of such a decision. It presents specific alternatives for finding—and shifting assets to—an ideal haven, showing readers how to protect personal wealth even as they discover a freer, more peaceful way to live, invest, and/or retire.
