(I assume the other 10% is chocolate, tourism, prostitution and clocks).
What is more interesting is that Swiss fin.min. Widmer-Schlumpf is considering capital controls. I did wonder how long it would be before these words were spoken out loud. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see that gather pace. Not just in Switzerland either. I do think a Euro breakup is less likely than likely in the short term. Greece’s exit more likely than not in the short term. But if the fit did hit the shand, the good old UK wouldn’t be too slow on the capital controls side. Worked in the 60s & 70s a treat. Constrict outward fund movement – constrict inward immigration.
Hey B

a shame about the Swissie.....I remember it frollicking alongside its friends the yen and USD with the carefree wind in its hair ....sigh

heres those 2 Euro and CHF amigos on a strengthmeter and the path is south at the moment for both of them.....but only because the SNB must be the only party buying Euro at the moment .....

Yeah, let the scumbag enjoy the summer and finish the planning for his contribution to the Olympics.....
All for him playing Hook.......then he'll have all his benefits stopped if he's actually earning money. That'll reduce our national debt by a fair whack.
