The Five Forces Analysis is a strategic model developed at Harvard in the late 70’s. If we extrapolate it to the personal environment, we can observe the following: often, incomes are at the maximum of negotiation capacity (salaries, pensions, rents ). The taxes subtract a significant percentage of said income. In addition, the cost of products (CPI) and land exceeds the growth of salaries and pensions, causing loss of purchasing power. Conserve income and also preserve and increase the standard of living by residing in a cheaper country such as Paraguay becomes attractive at times.
For example, its largest city, Asunción, is for several years considered the most economic capital in the world. Nowhere in the Americas is there such a balance between a technological and advanced society and prices as competitive as those offered in Paraguay.
Its no a secret. Reducing costs to increase the profit margin is something that both companies and families naturally do. However, where in the business world it is feared that it leads to a form of disinvestment or loss of quality, it can be done in a way that results in an increase in investment or in quality, in this case, in the quality of lifetime.
When the maximum possible revenue capacity has been reached, the margin is extended by reducing costs, e.g. paying less taxes or having all the advantages and comforts of a modern society (avant-garde health, technology, cultural events, security) at a cheaper price. This not only allows us to maintain the standard of living, but, because of the savings produced, it brings us a profit that can be reinvested in new businesses or in oneself.
You can live in Paraguay BETTER than in Europe and also save.
For tenants, for owners.
In addition, the increase in the price of land can only benefit this idea: if you live in rent, in Paraguay you can only save (reduce costs). If you have your own home in Spain, the price of your sale / rent can only increase your income.
On the other hand, the growth of life expectancy and labor instability mean that pensions do not facilitate maintaining the same purchasing power in the medium and long term.
For pensioners, for workers
We must discard the outdated topic on the elderly as resigned and little open to change.
The future pensioners of today are not like the old pensioners: the new pensioners were adolescents in the 60s and shortly, of the 70. They have known as young adults the introduction of the computer in the daily life, they have adapted to the technology mobile and, as new generations enter this club, new waves arrive with another mentality more open to new experiences and improve their quality of life.
In the first ten years of residence in Paraguay, pensions are practically free of taxes, which naturally attracts a large number of Europeans, Americans and Australians who decide to start a second life in the country.
In addition, smartworking or teleworking acquires progressively more consistency in new jobs born at the mercy of technological advances and in the business world.
The more work is done with the intellect and not physically, more existing roles and especially new ones can be released from the work center.
The companies of the 21st century save in costs and the employee wins by whatever you look: translators, software developers, daytraders, creatives, community managers, entrepreneurs and many others can maintain their activities and income, saving in costs and in taxes, significantly increasing your margin and your standard of living.
The technology allows us to free ourselves from being tied in person to a complete desk when we are still available and available for a video call or to share a desk from the warm shore of Paraná.
Quality of life
The traffic jams, the rush, the pollution, the food on the fly, although unpleasant, are part of our comfort zone. We do not like them, and yet they are part of the familiar environment, to which we are accustomed. On the other hand, there are more and more people in different life situations who, instead of resigning themselves, choose to leave that area and start a new life in Paraguay.
The pensioners have already worked a lot. It is time to dedicate yourself and enjoy yourself. Online work grows every day and is a key trend of the 21st century. So, why do it two blocks from the office, being able to do it comfortably while having a terere?
The expat worker population increases year after year. New generations of qualified employees prefer the quality of life rather than a level of income that they will not be able to enjoy. And, on the other hand, by moving to Paraguay, they can keep both benefits.
What is the point of spending one hour a day to go to the workplace and then another to return, with fatigue and stress accumulated? What benefit is there, once there, to be exposed to constant distractions that can only negatively affect productivity?
Instead, people who move to this country of the Southern Cone to discover, can adopt a more relaxed lifestyle, devoting their energy to what is important, and not the accessory.
