Expatriate (n.) A socially desirable and/or rich person seeking a better life in a new country. Contrast with immigrant and foreigner.

Developed economies try hard to attract expatriates, with generous tax breaks for their employers, so that expatriates can push up house prices, grab the best real estate, and generally have a great party at the expense of the locals. Not to be confused with "ex-patriot", which is an expatriate who really hates home.
