SSC has always considered both Mexico and Panamá to be part of North America. We are aware that there are differing points of view about this in different parts of the world, but for our purposes this is how we categorize both countries.

shame about the height restrictions though. Seattle is going to become a dense plateau of 440' highrises. (minus a few exceptions here and there eg Amazon Towers)

Yo soy de San Diego Ca. y viví la mitad de mi vida allá, y no, no le dicen Norte América a Panamá papers, los gringos saben que esta en Central America pero no importa sigamos viendo las fotos de Panamá papers never mind

What does Panama City owe its skyline to? Wealthy foreigners coming to hide their money from Mr. Taxman + the Panama Canal?

I think expats for financial services + lawyers and North American retirees. There are approx 175,000 North American retirees in Panama City. That's a huge number for a city of 1.5 million people.

Quote:
The government of Panama has the best incentive program in the world for foreign retirees.

Some of the benefits are:

One-time importation duty exemption on all your personal and household goods up to $10,000.
Importation duty exemption of a car free of taxes every two years. (Other taxes do apply)
All foreigners (not just retirees) who purchase a home of more than $200,000 have the right to a residency visa.
100% Property tax exemption for sole residence

The following benefits are for all retirees - both Foreign residents and Panamanian:

50% off closing costs for home loans.
25% off both international and domestic airline tickets.
10% off prescription medicines ( which are inexpensive to begin with)
15% off dentistry.
30% off bus, boat and train fares.
25% Restaurants
15% Fast Food Restaurants
20% Doctor visits and Surgery
25% Monthly energy, phone and water bill
15% Optometry services
50% Hotel from Monday thru Thursday and 30% on weekends
50% off entertainment including movies, concerts, sporting events and theater. ( This means for example, a movie ticket will cost you $2. And Panamanian cinemas receive American movies about the same time they come out in the States.)
In Panama all banks (mandated by law) have special express lines for Retirees.

Panama Info
and also this, CNN: How do you retire on $25,600 a year? Move to Panama
