    by Catherine Shu Zhang and Stephen Tao Jiang
    Abstract: This article explores the current state that enables Americans to retire aboard with an easily affordable, albeit highstandard of living. As the wave of American baby boomers approach retirement age, a reported 3.3 million are thinking about retiring abroad. How are they to realize their expectation for affordable living, along with their needs for accessing Social Security and Medicare benefits, in order to choose their best retirement destination? While Americans currently retire more often than not to Europe, Canada and Mexico, other countries such as Thailand and Malaysia have emerged that also offer attractive incentives to Americans contemplating retirement.
