Re: Amazon Purchases

Yes that's true for items that are produced in a country and not imported to Switzerland. But for these cases, why not buy it from an (e)-shop of the country where the item is produced? This way you support the local economy and avoid the Amazon hegemony.
In today's global economy I support the site that can make my shopping experience safe and convenient with the best prices possible. For many products Amazon provides that, and sometimes it is the only place you can find certain things that are not available in Switzerland.

So please, stop all this spiel about supporting the local economy because it does not apply to every purchase we make. In fact, save your outrage for the Swiss people who travel to Germany every week to do all of their grocery and toiletry shopping because imo that is worse.
