Re: richest in the world

after the decuction of the living costs, it no longer is Switzerland but LUXEMBURG which leads the field --- the CHF has been overvalued for decades in reality

Re: richest in the world

Unfortunately, the wealth is nowhere evenly distributed in some of the top countries, meaning that there are a lot of people who are living well below the average. My first ipression of Luxenbourg was being aware of the number of beggars outside the train station. even in Switzerland, with it's generally aknowledged high level of salaries/benefits, I am sure I could readily lead any statitician to a lot of people who are struggling with well under the 200,000 "average" asets.
