Singapore may seem like a great place to relocate to, but Andrew reminds the audience that it's not a tax haven.

Andrew does a comparison between Singapore/Malaysia and Singapore/Hong Kong.

 

Carol Merchasin makes her living off rental properties in Mexico and talks to Andrew about her journey from New York city to San Miguel, Mexico.
