Swiss Review --magazine for Swiss expats

I wondered if anyone read the Swiss Review? It is the magazine for Swiss Abroad but has some interesting articles. this week it discusses immigration- Swiss banks infuriate the Swiss Abroad, Does Swiss govt need reform, Soverterchlaus, Cern. I enjoy reading it, even if the articles infuriate me at times they always give me something to think about and proud to be Swiss,

To put the matter into proper perspectives, while the two giants, UBS and CS, plus some "private banks" started to discriminate against people with USA addresses, most of the Cantonal banks and most particularily MigrosBank and Coop-Bank welcome exactly those people more than ever. Both MigrosBank and Coop-Bank have profited from recent developments in an enormous way

Not sure if I get this? Are you saying that it looks like a Migros magazine? Being such a stickler for detail. I can't believe that you would have posted on the wrong thread- oder?

Interesting that this magazine is not aimed at expatriates in Switzerland, but Swiss expatriates living abroad, yet the magazine is written in English. Any D/F/I editions?

P.S. Just checked the web site. Not only ARE there D/F/I editions, but also one in Spanish.

I believe Wollishofener was referring to the story you mentioned, "Swiss banks infuriate the Swiss Abroad". I don't think he, or anyone, believes the magazine is from Migros. There are no 2x Cumulus Samstag ads, for a start.

No, it does NOT look like a Migros magazine. That they in this magazine pick up a topic which has been of quite some interest with Swiss people both in Switzerland and in the USA, US people in Switzerland and many Americans in the USA cannot be the basis to jump to some weird conclusions. And another aspect is that it apparently was not that article which infuriated people but the attitudes of UBS and CS

I subscribe in English — would've gone for Deutsch, but that would have excluded my immediate family from enjoying it. I'll miss out-going editor Heinz Eckert. His editorial in the Oct 2010 issue was well put, IMHO.

Re: Swiss Review --magazine for Swiss expats

My wife was getting it while we were in the US...Happy to receive & read it but nothing revelatory...A small way to remain 'connected' to home I suppose
