The Swiss are the ultimate profiteers. Throughout history they’ve sat on the sideline picking up the scraps from the World’s misfortunes. The ultimate in National Amorality IMO.
Just out of curiosity... did the Swiss take in refugees during WW2?
So what, I hope nobody takes them. Then what will Bambi and Co. do?
The US is going after rich US taxpayers. They’ll go after the middle class afterwards. So much for Obama wanting to make friends with the rest of the world! He makes nice with the monsters in the Middle East and gets all our allies pissed off. Sounds like Carter redux.
Please don’t cut off the supply of Army knives :)
If I were a Swiss citizen..., I certainly wouldn't want to take these psychopathic zealots!!!
STOP TAXING THE SO CALLED RICH TO THE HILT AND MAYBE THAT MONEY WOULD STAY CLOSER TO HOME!!
Just a thought!!
I am glad someone in der Schweiz has b*lls. They should NOT have let us take them to the woodshed like that. They are a sovereign nation and should be able to run their banking the way they like.
(Disclaimer - I lived in Switzerland for a decade and have a lot of fondness for my home away from home.)
Folks, capital will go to whatever place that treats it well. It’s as simple as that.
Why is there a need for rich people to hide their wealth and not use it here in America where it could possibly be used for investment and job creation ?
It’s because they get CONFISCATED, mostly for social engineering.
Why not create policies that treat capital well ?
How about a millionaire’s green card where rich people who put their money in the USA and create jobs get a fast track to permanent residency ?
I betcha ( apologies to Sarah ), capital will flown IN to the USA if they are treated well here by the government.
