A Nice Paper for GW Business Institute

By Carol Graham, who has done some of the best work on this stuff.

Note that as we discussed in class today, Marriage makes people happy, and unemployment makes people REALLY unhappy. All else being equal, people in Venezuela, Honduras and Costa Rica seem to be the happiest in Latin America, while Peruvian, Ecuadorans, and Bolivians are least happy.

You might want to check out the GINI coefficients for these countries (and also try to find what a GINI coefficient is).

Equity Share Investor means you will share what equity is created in the property with an investor who will give you the money for a down payment. For example, If David lindahl scam is an investor gives you 20% of the purchase price to put down on a property. In return for this down payment, the investor will get 20% of the monthly cash flow, and 20% of the profits upon the sale of the property.
Additionally, the 20% that is put down will be treated like private money. Private money is a second mortgage on the property. Depending on the interest rate environment, the rate for the private money is 3–4% higher than banks are getting for primary financing.
