Hungary's newest export: pensioners
You know how old people in many "developing" economies manage to scrape by or even prosper via the remittances sent to them by children or relatives working in other countries? Well that's not Hungary! According to this report by Népszabadság a relatively large number of Hungarian pensioners are now having their checks sent to far-flung places around the world, including Peru and Ghana.
The piece, which has a great map showing where all these checks are being sent, says that the idea place for expat nyugdíjasok is Panama, apparently because forints go pretty far there, and Forbes magazine has listed it as among the best places to retire abroad.
