Taxes are higher in Europe and several countries there have a very healthy middle class. Some of the Northern Europe and Scandinavian countries come to mind like Sweden.

There is no jealousy here, unlike 99% of people posting here, who are tied to a particular city, because of jobs, and making a move would be hard to impossible to them, I can move whenever I want at a finger snap. This Thursday I will fly to Tokyo and spend there indefinitely, and then when I'm bored come back to my home in Miami Beach. I will send you a picture of the cherry blossoms there

The reason I live in Miami is the same reason so many UHNWI have a secondary presence in this city, because the passion of this place. This place lives and breathes, most other places in the USA just works and dies.

Do you understand spanish?

Nope, you're only thinking primary residence. When you factor primary and secondary, just Miami metro has more billionaires than the entire California.

A lot of billionaires in other countries probably do own secondary residences in Miami, but SF still has more primary residential billionaires than Miami.

Which is because SF has an industry, however it has no draw for UHNWI individuals who don't make money in San Francisco. Almost all activity in Miami is from UHNWI who don't make their money here. But the appeal is much broader, more UHNWI from around the world want to be seen here. So that's why in the end we are 6 and San Francisco is 19.

What's funny is most of those UHNWI from San Francisco have secondary residences here as well, but not just San Francisco but Los Angeles, New York, London, Moscow, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Shanghai.

Like I said we're for playing and living, San Francisco for working.

Yes. Miami is a secondary residence people retire and vacay at while SF is a primary residence of more than twice as many billionaires and at least FIVE TIMES MORE UHNWIs.

Agreed 100%.

Who cares about primary residence? That's a reflection of markets. It doesn't mean they like their city, it means very often their corporation is based there.

Point is Miami has such an appeal with UHNWI we have more billionaires and UHNWI in general coming in and out of here than San Francisco. You can call it vacay but they spend months here at a time.

In the end, your lack of appeal got you to 19, and us to 6. I see you're still salty and foaming at the mouth trying to discredit it

Let me give this analogy then I have to go

Think of UHNWI as beautiful girls. Think of San Francisco as that hardworking nerd, who pulls nice money and has a stable job. Think of Miami as the playboy with no stable job.

Now think of you, shaking your head in complete amazement that more beautiful girls (UHNWI) have flings with the playboy (Miami) despite you (San Francisco) being a hard worker.

So you cling onto that you're in a committed, long term relationship (primary residence) with a beautiful girl (UHNWI) ignoring the fact that same beautiful girl is having a fling (secondary residence) with the playboy (Miami) on the side, in complete disrespect of you. And besides your own girl doing it, other girls are doing it as well. But in the end, no matter how popular the playboy (Miami) is with girls (UHNWI), his lack of stability (industry) keeps the relationships to mostly flings.

He will see more girls (UHNWI) enter and leave his life than the nerd (San Francisco), but will always have temporary relationships with them.
