Swiss banks
Swissness is not enough
Big and small must adapt to survive

Mar 29th 2014 | ZURICH | From the print edition

LIKE their country’s watchmakers, Swiss banks have enjoyed a reputation for quality, reliability and watertight discretion. But since 2008, spectacular coups by neighbouring countries’ tax authorities and investigations by America’s Department of Justice have torn at their reputation. 

Now they are trying to rebuild one as squeaky-clean money managers.

The deceptive calm of shoppers on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich belies the turmoil behind the doors of nearby financial institutions. 

Foreign banks are selling out. 

The biggest Swiss names are dogged by litigation and calls for more capital just as costs are rising and margins falling.

 On March 13th they lost a prominent client: Uli Hoeness, president of Bayern Munich football club, was jailed for three-and-a-half years by a Munich court for avoiding tax on money in a Swiss bank account.

It is now clear to even the most obstin…

NEED A SECOND PASSPORT ??? : Citizenship by Investment programs

Citizenship by investment programs are offered by several countries and they allow an investor to legally, and almost immediately, acquire citizenship without needing to physically move to the country of choice.

Benefits of having additional passport:
Alternative passport can remove the need to apply for visas and travel internationally on demand. For international business, or certain lifestyles, the hassle of acquiring and renewing visas can be extensive, painful, and detrimental to time sensitive business opportunities. The main programs can provide you visa free travel to over 130 countries, including the UK, the European Union’s Schengen Zone, the USA, Canada, and more.
If your family were to acquire citizenship in any of the EU countries, they would immediately acquire the right to live, work, and study anywhere within the EU. This is one of the most demanded benefits.
Many also like holding a second citizenship or residence to simply have a plan B if things ever go sideways local…

Government Spends More on Corporate Welfare Subsidies than Social Welfare Programs

Time Magazine, Vol. 152 No. 19

About $59 billion is spent on traditional social welfare programs. $92 billion is spent on corporate subsidies.

 So, the government spent 50% more on corporate welfare than it did on food stamps and housing assistance in 2006.

Before we look at the details, a heartfelt plea from the Save the CEO’s Charitable Trust:

There’s so much suffering in the world. It can all get pretty overwhelming sometimes. Consider, for a moment the sorrow in the eyes of a CEO who’s just found out that his end-of-year bonus is only going to be a paltry $2.3 million.

“It felt like a slap in the face. Imagine what it would feel like just before Christmas to find out that you’re going to be forced to scrape by on your standard $8.4 million compensation package alone. Imagine what is was like to have to look into my daughter’s face and tell her that I couldn’t afford to both buy her a dollar sign shaped island and hire someone to chew her food from now on, too. To put her in that situat…


Welfare Payout Statistics That Will Make You Really Angry



According to the Cato Institute, welfare benefits payout more than a minimum wage job in at least 35 states!

 According to Cato, in thirteen states the payout is more than $15 an hour!

 And even more shocking, is that if someone were to draw all of the welfare benefits that they are “entitled” to, their pay would be more than that of a newly college educated teacher (burdened with student loan debt, no doubt) in eleven states, and it would add up to more than the salary of a computer programmer in three states!

The highest welfare payout states pay more than $20 an hour, and they include: 

Hawaii, with payments equaling $29.13 per hour, DC at $24.43 per hour, Massachusetts at $24.30 , Connecticut at $21.33, New York at $21.01 per hour, New Jersey at $20.89 per hour, Rhode Island at $20.83 per hour and Vermont at $20.36 per hour.

The Cato study was authored by Michael Tanner and Charles …
