Where are you looking in Panama? It's on my short list with Ecuador and Mexico. I'm out of here in 1-3 years. Done with the cold and the cost of living. Taking my NY money where it will stretch for miles in the sunshine. 

Great, another JetNation mod taking advantage of the pension system and retiring earlier. You should see @TaborJet's house. And @BP has a $90,000 pick up truck. We are going to have to change the benefit policy around here.  :)

The addage of you make less money in the south is also false now...   as a CPA I have tons of clients earning well in the 6 figures and I still do a ton of NY/NYC tax returns and they make on average, the same as here in the south. Bankers, Lawyers etc. 

Jets webmasters make less in Florida than they do in NJ. So I have heard.

With what is going on in NJ right now, you would have to be insane to move IN.

NJ is a segregated state for the most part, which is nice.

A $90K pickup truck?  My Land Cruiser wasn't even that much.

Sounds like we need to "redistribute" his wealth. :P

In fairness it might be more of a $9,000 truck, but I don't generally let the truth get in the way of a good post.

If we're not taking ability (mental and financial) to complete the requisite coursework, doctors make considerably more over the course of a lifetime than either of those professions.

A lot of people do finance because they couldn't get into other professions.

Up until this year my wife who is a doctor made less than I did my third year out of college.  And she did med school and 6 years of training and had been a intensive care doctor for 8 years.  The pay isn’t great in all the fields.

I'm self employed and own my own business so I only take two weeks off  a year and a few long weekends off. We got places in Myrtle Beach and Sandbridge (VA Beach) and we spend a week in each. Never really got too experimental with the locations because Id hate to waste one of my two weeks off a year by going to a place I don;t like.

But, I would imagine your suggestion would be exactly what we would do before we ever purchased something. I'm in the process of bringing in more practitioners so eventually my income won;t rely as much on me working as it does now. I will probably double one of those weeks up and do exactly what you suggested. But I'm 15 years away from retiring and right now and m,y current focus is my next meal.

Crusher man... what kind of business you in?

My wife is also a doctor and I’m in finance - both were fortunate to go to school and graduate debt free. Most of our friends are either doctors or director/c-suite level at various banks and funds.

Your statement that not all fields pay well is true, but my post was to refute EY’s statement claiming that finance is where the money is. 

Of course there are exceptions to my refute. If we’re talking about certain types of doctors who receive considerably less than a director at a fund would over a 10 year span, then sure. Or if we’re talking about the rare fund manager who hit on a monster bet and then walked away, maybe. But those guys generally don’t exist. And simply going by headcount, there are more doctors with higher pay than there are fund managers - period. Also, most doctors enjoy 25-30+ years of their high pay scale, whereas fund managers experience huge swings in pay determined by various factors. GPs sometimes don’t even get paid or have to return portions of their salary if the market turns on them or if they make bad bets in a given year. That offsets the big paycheck they might have received the year before. Doctors don’t deal with that stuff. Their salary is generally safe from clawbacks unless they’re being sued for malpractice, for which there is insurance.

When considering all of this over the long term (meaning from your first post-grad paycheck till retirement), I stick to my statement that doctors are still going to receive an aggregate pay check larger than most jobs - and definitely more so than finance. And that’s the message we’ll be passing along to our firstborn from the moment he/she arrives in early/mid 2019! :D

Interesting..  I handle a lot of chiropractors here in Charlotte.  Im sure youve heard the joke..  Some of my clients are real doctors. :)

 

The answer is ...  Yes, we Chiropractors haven't killed enough people to get the respect we deserve.

She’s wants to get away from the high crime and sh*tty schools in S Florida and be with in 30 minutes to an hour from Bergen County. What area should I look at? Basic things I’m looking into is work (residential electrical), good schools, and low crime. 

I was going to say divorce her, but NJ is a big upgrade over Florida

 Much better schools, higher paying jobs, better food, better sports fans, better neighborhoods, better weather, etc. outside of the taxes and gun laws (for me anyway) NJ is a much better choice.

Monmouth County is expensive and some areas have really high crime rate but convenience to beach, eateries and attractions are best.

More people moved out of this state than any other in America

New Jersey residents are on the outs with their state.

More people moved out of the Garden State in 2018 than any other state, according to a new study by United Van Lines – though New York wasn’t far behind.

New Jersey, which topped the list of the “most moved from” states, was followed by Illinois, Connecticut and the Empire State, the moving company’s study found.

The St. Louis-based company on Wednesday released its 42nd annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers’ state-to-state migration patterns.

“The Northeast region continues to see more residents leaving than moving in, with 57 percent of all moves within the Northeast US being outbound moves,” the company said.

The study found that 66.8 percent of New Jersey moves were “outbound.” The percentages were 65.9 in Illinois, 62 in Connecticut, 61.5 in New York and 58.7 in Kansas, according to the study.

Ohio, Massachusetts, Iowa, Montana and Michigan rounded out the list of the “most moved from” states.

Vermont – whose population is the second-smallest in the nation — was the only Northeast state that made the “most moved to” list, topping the list with 72.6 percent of its movers making inbound migrations.

Four Western states filled out the top 5 “moved to” list — Oregon, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona.

The Carolinas, Washington, South Dakota and the District of Columbia almost made the top inbound list.

“The data collected by United Van Lines aligns with longer-term migration patterns to southern and western states, trends driven by factors like job growth, lower costs of living, state budgetary challenges and more temperate climates,” said Michael Stoll, economist and professor in the Department of Public Policy at UCLA

 

 

“Unlike a few decades ago, retirees are leaving California, instead choosing other states in the Pacific West and Mountain West. We’re also seeing young professionals migrating to vibrant, metropolitan economies, like Washington, DC, and Seattle.”
