RE: Is US a good country to become rich?
Anyone have good links to articles about foreigners who are paving a path to their fortunes in the developing world?

Preferably real talk and not just hyped-up articles?

If you earn about 100K a year and:

1. Save most of it by living like a pauper.

2. Don't marry/have kids or marry a chick who earns decent coin and also believes in saving most of your income.

3. Take most of your money and invest it properly.

You have a pretty good shot at a pretty high net worth even pretty early on.

It's amazing how much money you could save/blow on a bunch on all sorts of little things.

People are amazed I retired on an amount most here would think is too little, in my 50s after fucking off all through my 20s.

They ask me how and I say "No house, no kids, no car"

I live where I can bicycle to the food store and the bike shop lol and the train station and Hertz.

If I have a contract working for a few months I rent a car for about 150 per week ONLY while I'm working and then it's gone and insurance and repairs are someone else's problem.
