The cited kpmg report focuses on taxes and social security. The UBS report, which I posted on a previous thread, describes wages, prices and purchasing power. Zurich has the highest purchasing power in the world.
For some. I have in my library a copy of "Les Suisses sans nom" http://www.etresoi.ch/

"Highest purchasing power in the world" ... for whom?

Perhaps I know too much, from experience (including in Zurich), to take at face value comparative charts. Huff Post cited your article

But I surmise that statistics dependent upon rates of exchange should not be taken too seriously. And UBS shouldn't be taken too seriously either. We got a letter from them last year (from their PDG) saying our money was safe, that they were not at risk from the economic catastrophe facing the world. I wrote back to the PDG saying that it seemed to me they were most at risk for having scammed the US IRS. The PDG didn't write back.
