Americans Are Applying to Move to New Zealand at an Astounding Rate
NZ has fewer than five million inhabitants, about 1/7 the population of California. It could get a bit crowded there.Forget Canada. In the wake of the election, the Associated Press reports, Americans are applying in droves for citizenship in New Zealand, a country as far away as physically possible from the United States, and one with a strong social safety net. With U.S. politics more chaotic and divisive than ever, the number of applications for citizenship has soared a whopping 70 percent in the three months following the election, compared to the same period of time last year.
