    Default 7 reasons why Switzerland is the best run country in the world - How do we compare ?

    Below article outlines 7 reasons why Switzerland is the best run country. A quick look at the reasons makes me think Ireland do exactly opposite...

    Few middlemen and everyone is accountable : In Ireland - Plenty of Middlemen - no one accountable eg. Bankers, Garda, Politicians etc. etc.

    Everything is centralized & Most decisions are made at the local level : Quite the opposite here

    There are no career politicians : Here politics is a career with Rolls Royce salaries and pensions - even more lucrative than Medicine and Law.

    The country is a safe haven for money and brain power : We are 'THE' experts in squandering our wealth. And emigration is our biggest wealth generator.

    There's a core middle class attitude : 20% of families on social welfare...No need to say more.

    Being completely unprincipled in its banking practices, looking after the plundered billions of mass-murdering psychopaths, even to the point of stashing stuff stolen from Holocaust victims for the Nazis. All done very discreetly and with the utmost panache, of course.

    ****************************** them, I'd rather be poor.

    A lot of it is in the past.

    Look at now - HSBC has been happily engaged in criminal behaviour and our own ones are competing to plunder the poor.

    Is it?

    Swiss banking secrecy: Don

    Any concessions that the unprincipled bastards are now making is purely as a result of concerted pressure from outside which is now beginning to bite. And they have fought it every step of the way.

    By Jesus TA, it's not often we agree, but we do here and in spades.

    It's not about Banking. It is about running the country.

    For a number of idiots here it seems to be about Nazi gold, McConville, Gerry Adams, FF and any other unrelated shyte that can be raked up to derail proper discussion. Speaking of banking; aren't we World leaders in certain aspects of this noble profession?
