Hey I'm not one to discriminate the Daily Mail (UK) does a fantastic piece of "lets not look under the carpet" too.

Just to balance the comments up a bit. I loathe these equally.

Sort of annoyed at the Swiss bashing by english speaking newspapers at the moment for following the very models that these newspapers advocate in their own countries. Some would call it envy.
Agreed. If you read the comments in the WSJ piece, you will see that many readers have a very favorable view of Zug and Switzerland. I guess though with the link given above, you cant read them. But you can see them here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111904875404576528123989551738.html?m od=WSJ_hp_MIDDLENexttoWhatsNewsTop

Maybe I'm a bit cranky this morning, but geez am I tired of the naive and uninformed opinions about the US that so many people seem to swallow and regurgitate any time they're even mildly displeased with something in the US.
Makes a refreshing change from all the naive and uninformed opinions about CH that people swallow and regurgitate, etc.

It is easier for people to generalize than to think for themselves. They
do this everywhere.
