Re: Two Swiss cities in cost of living top three

And where to salaries rank? Number one and two, no?

On another site I saw that London salaries were 55% of Zurich but expenses excluding rent were 74% (numbers from memory as I'm on my mobile) but the article is (in German) on www.efinancialcareers.ch).

Re: Two Swiss cities in cost of living top three

It's an update to the 2009 Prices and Earnings report.

Of note as to the change in position

"Since Denmark’s krone is held
within a limited range against the euro, the Swiss franc’s continued
appreciation versus the Eurozone currency has aided and in fact mostly
explains the change in order between Copenhagen and the Swiss cities.

Alright! Sell the UBS to the Qatar Investment Fund ! And no longer allow them to launch such things

But the money got from that selling ought to be invested in purchasing the "Deutsche Bank AG" which then of course will be renamed immedciately into being the "Deutsch-Schweizerische Bank AG "

and in order to reduce the role of the Germans in Civil Aviation, the shareholders of UBS should be encouraged to purchase the shares of Lufthansa which then will be renamed into "Swissair" !

Re: Two Swiss cities in cost of living top three

Then install 30 swiss directors, many of whom have no airline mangement experience, with parochial interests and misplaced arrogance on believing Switzerland can be a world player in aviation. That should cause its rapid demise.
