Here is something different for those of you struggling with the tough decisions regarding U.S citizenship. Should you renounce or not? Should you become tax compliance with FBAR and FATCA, or not? It is a major decision in your life, and tonight, I am going to ask you to consider this:
Should it all boil down to a simple coin flip to decide?
Before you dismiss it as way too simplistic, I am going to encourage you to at least listen to this latest podcast . You can then decide if you want to join in an experiment the guys who wrote Freakonomics are conducting.
I am extending the invitation I got to go to Freakonomics Experiments.
They have just launched this new website for those having trouble making a big decision of any kind. They think they can help. Should you change your career, take that new job, or break up with a long time partner? Should you renounce your citizenship?
Take their survey and tell them what your dilemma is. It can be anything. They will take you through a questionnaire to help with your decision, and you’ll become a data point in Steve Levitt’s new research in decision-making. Maybe some active Brockers (or passive lurkers) would want to participate. They are promising some free Freakonomics swag.
Check it out and see if it has any value for you. Maybe. Maybe not, but what the heck? Flipping a coin has a certain appeal.
