Around the world, there are over 50 million expatriates. So where do expats live, and which countries are considered the most hospitable?
Counting the Uncountable: Overseas Americans
“The migration debate in the United States-a country with a long history of immigration and currently home to around one-fifth of all international migrants-often focuses on the number of foreign born who enter and reside in the country. ”
Why expats call this utopia
“Imagine a major metropolis where traffic flows quickly on green highways; where streets are sparkling clean and restoration is nearly as vigilant as sanitation; where four main ethnicities (Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian) co-exist in tropical tolerance with a large community of foreigners who live and raise kids without fear of crime or the slightest impolite slight. ”
Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants?
“In the lexicon of human migration there are still hierarchical words, created with the purpose of putting white people above everyone else. ”
Why I’m Giving Up My Passport
“THE mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who was born in New York and holds both American and British passports, recently said that he would not pay a tax bill from the United States on capital gains from the sale of his home in the London borough of Islington.”
