In the current world climate I've seen a number of people express, either in jest, wistfulness, or some level of seriousness an interest in moving to New Zealand.
For those of you who want to do some serious investigation here are some links to get your started:
The cost of living in New Zealand is not as low as some countries, partially due to being miles from everywhere else, the shortest flight to another country from New Zealand is 3 1/2 hours to Australia. Maybe if you are looking at one of the investment visa options further below there's a business opportunity in there somewhere.
What you can earn in different roles may also be different.
For the well-heeled there are investment options, while some of the numbers involved might seem scary, the currency of most western nations are worth more than the NZ dollar so your currency transfer rate is favourable, for example at the time of writing $500,000 NZD = $302,420 USD.
