Recently Pair Richelsen he tweeted “Ok, serious question: what stops the average American (who can afford it) from moving to Europe?” By the next morning she had received hundreds of different responses.

On today’s show, Dan and Ian, who have just arrived in Barcelona for the summer, offer their thoughts on ‘The Question of Europe’, a topic they believe will be increasingly discussed as more American workers have greater opportunities. to live and work remotely outside of the United States:

We have a whole new class of graduates on our hands… people went to school, many people who used to be teachers, administrators, bureaucrats, waiters, bartenders… They decided they don’t want to go to their jobs in person anymore. , they wanted an online job.

At the same time, many companies that had knowledge workers realized they needed to allow those people to work from home during COVID. Those people didn’t want to go back to the office, so they needed to continue to allow them to work from home.

And now all of a sudden I think these questions are not so much what does the digital nomad that this edge case traveler wants to do, we have this whole class of mainstream graduates, who are asking the digital nomad question: why we don’t live in Europe? Is very good. They have public transportation. Why haven’t we been there yesterday? Why don’t we move here this year?

Listen to this week’s program and learn:

  • The problems and irritations you may encounter as a non-resident in Europe
  • The relative cost of living in the US vs. Europe
  • The enormous diversity in Europe
  • The potential impact of this change on local populations
