Sustainable Life in the Dominican Republic


Are you worried about the sustainability of the western world? If so, Barry Soloman says the Dominican Republic is a great place to consider living. Barry is the co-founder of the popular website and YouTube channel DR Escapes. During his travels to over a hundred countries he realized that the economies of most western nations were unsustainable. His study of trends brought him to find the farming regions of the North Coast of the Dominican Republic as one of the most stable areas in the northern hemisphere. We talk to Barry about the cost of living, immigration, medical care and many other aspects of life in the Dominican Republic.
