Why should they bother. The US will likely move the goalposts again in five years. Your country is a regulatory over-governed nightmare. If you think that company not doing business with you was bad wait till you aint the number one global reserve currency. You will get a rude shock.

I am 48yo, live off grid, grow my own food and the fees I charge for farmers to agist animals on my property pay my council rates with a small sum left over. I can happily get by on what a lot of people would spend on entertainment or fuel for their vehicles. Computers and technology were a hobby of mine until I started to work in the field and then they became nothing more to me that a burden and pain in the arse. I saw the future of IT a little earlier than most and got out before it really went to shit. Now I enjoy computers and technology again. I may not have much money but what i do have is happiness with my position and lot in life and that makes me in my eyes a wealthy man indeed.
