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.
