The Nomad Economist: What are the Safest Places to Live When WW3 Starts?

You are probably aware of the tale of the Canadian family that wanted to move to the safest place in the world, a place free of all military threats. They did extensive research and then moved to the Falkland Islands around 1981 because they knew it was a super safe, isolated place, far from strife and conflict.

United Press International reported that Canadians “Bill and Barbara Curtis and their two children left Mission, British Columbia, in September to seek a quiet life, In the Falkland Islands. That didn’t turn out to be a wise move at the time because shortly after, on April 11, 1982, the Falkland War began. The Curtis family, have received quite a bit of unwanted publicity about the irony of their chosen destination.

I have learned that there are quite a few other tales of people moving to the wrong places at the wrong times: Guadalcanal in the Solomon islands, just before World War Two being one that jumps to mind for some reason.

The point is, the safest place for any human is fundamentally unpredictable, as peace on earth can never be guaranteed.

We human beings generally feel safe in our own house, in our own country with our own people and our own surroundings. But that is not the way we are supposed to live our life.

The world his huge, and it poses numerous challenges and opportunities to excel in our life. Facing these challenges and winning is the best way to live our life. If you can find a country where the police don’t feel they need to draw their guns every time they approach a parked car, then that’s an indication of how safe that place is.

If you don’t need more than one lock on your front door, then that’s a sign of a safe place. If people are friendly, helpful, and neighborly, then you’ve found a safe place. If you can go into a government agency and get help without bribery, then you are in a safe place.


 If you are in a country that isn’t prone to having natural disasters, or if it does, there are sufficient support services to help you get over them, then you have found a safe place.

If you are not afraid to travel on public transport or walk the local streets after dark, then you have found a safe place.

If you have clean water and sanitation services, and adequate medical services, if you do get sick, then you are safe.

 It depends on what you need to be content and where you are in life. As we see in the news, there is no place on the planet where we are not subject to natural disasters or lunatics with guns and bombs.

Quoting from the french philosopher, Sartre, hell is other people. For me, that would mean a quiet village in the mountains anywhere where we would still have wi fi and not far from a mid-size city — a place to live in peace, to read, to create.

But in the case of global conflict or world war 3, The safest places where to hide would probably be remote islands with no border or maritime disputes; low crime rates; relative stable economy; lack of internal; racial or political conflicts and not many fatal natural hazards: Some examples I would give are.
