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.
The UBS PDG did not write back. But he quit. Thank you.
