Joel Skousen's book "Strategic Relocation"
« on: December 24, 2002, 10:32:51 am »

Anybody heard of this?   I have never seen it, but it was strongly recommended to me because it  has several chapters on how to decide the best place to live, from a Freedom point of view and a practical point of view like climate, jobs, and how the police and state bureaucrats act, how many people are on welfare, laws about homeschooling, gun laws, etc.

If you have read it, please post your comments here.

Here's Skousen's web site:
http://www.joelskousen.com/

He's got a forum going on this subject, looks defunct but some comments there might be worth a look:

Here's a review:
http://www.survival-center.com/books/strtrelo.htm

He's survivalist oriented. Also seems to want to use the subject to make more business for himself. Might have some material in the book that is worth a look, though. Why don't you buy it and tell us!  :D

(From the website) Joel Skousen writes that :

For earthquakes,
  • Anchorage, AK is 4th worst in the U.S.
For most dangerous nuclear target in/near metro area,
  • Washington D.C. is #1   (Delaware)
  • 2nd is  Colorado Springs, CO (Cheyenne Mtn Control Center, 2 space command/comm bases) (Wyoming)
  • 9th worst is Cheyenne, WY (Warren AFB, Minute Man and Peacekeeper MX missiles)
  • 10th worst is Great Falls, MT (Malmstrom AFB --Minute Man missiles)


For TOP 10 MODERATE GROWTH, MEDIUM SIZED METRO AREAS,
  • Boise, ID is #1
  • Provo-Orem, UT #2 (Utah borders Idaho)
  • Beaverton, OR  #3 (Idaho, again)
  • Reno, NV #9 (Northern NV- Southern ID proximity)

hmm, does Joel Skousen like Idaho?

For TOP 10 MOST ECONOMICAL STATES in which to live, none of our ten candidate states made it.

STATES WITH NO INCOME TAX:
  • Alaska, New Hampshire, So. Dakota, Wyoming

hmm, 4 of our candidate states out of 8

STATES WITH NO SALES TAX:
  • Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire

These are 4/5 listed.

STATES WITH NO INCOME OR SALES TAXES, BUT HIGH PROPERTY TAXES:
  • Alaska, New Hampshire
