Foreigners should pay higher taxes

Prof. Reiner Eichberger says immigration is too high and that foreigners ought to pay higher taxes.


Reiner Eichenberger, head of the centre for public finance at the University of Fribourg, believes profits from the higher taxes could be distributed to the benefit of Swiss citizens.
Would CH be better off with a targeted migration, like the points tests by Australia ( and some other countries ) based on what she needs ( Skills based Migration ) ?
