USB and Credit Suisse are much admired Companies, as is Nestle, Swatch and many more in the high tech Swiss Manufacturing and pharmaceuticals sectors.It is a low tax, low immigration, ultra Free Economy, that looks well set to maintain a Comparative advantage with the merging low cost Countries.It has an independent and democratic tradition as do we. Could be worse as a model .
