Can mid-high luxury be combined with low cost of living in a first world country?
Analysis: Mid-High Luxury usually commands a price to support it, Luxury products do go on sale every now and then, it isn't unimaginable to acquire a Diamond 5 karat ring for $1000, or a beachfront property for $200,000. Luxurious is attached to the 5 senses (see, hear, play, eat). Things can be luxurious but not high priced when the bulk of the population have not discovered it.
Factual reference: American Airlines offered first class lifetime flights for 250,000 in 1990. If you picked this up which is the cost of a single family house, you could have first classed flew for 50 years, One private charter flight costs about 100-200k one time in 2010. http://business.time.com/2012/05/08/the-250000-airline-pass-that-was-worth-every-penny/
Conclusion: Be early in the purchase or wait for the price to purchase luxury right.
