It is interesting to see that the Swiss policy from the 1810s to the 1920s was to encourage Swiss people to emigrate. Switzerland was one of the poorest country in Europe (with Monaco!) and not everybody could be fed. Even old people were conveniently asked to leave when they could not work anymore and village authorities would pay for their trip (GDR like).
If that was just a 100 years ago, it brings up another question to mind...where do you think CH will be in 100-200 years? maybe we'll find ourselves encouraged to emigrate again

I think 100 - 200 years from now, we'll all have emigrated for good
