Speculation and debate is a constant in our everyday world. (Feel free to quote me on that.)
Although this has also been said before (by me), it bears repeating:

The Bahamas is the birth country of both my father and my husband, so my opinions may be a little biased but the objective facts about the place speak plainly and much louder. Like Panama, foreign investors, particularly Americans, are welcome to purchase real property.
The Bahamian government enacted laws specifically to facilitate the investment process. Buy a vacation home or a timeshare property.
