by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
The Swiss have spoken and the results are in…sort of. The survey results, that is. Let me back up. On November 30th the Swiss will head to the polls to exercise that characteristically Swiss democratic institution, the referendum initiative.
There are three offerings on the plate for the Swiss this time around: The first is a call to further tighten the country’s already notoriously strict immigration policies to allow just 0.2% of the resident population (about 16,000 people) to enter the country each year. (Interestingly, this initiative is being done under the title “Stop overpopulation – safeguard our natural resources.”) The second initiative would abolish the flat tax system and require wealthy ex-pats in the country to be taxed only on income and assets. But the third initiative, the “Save Our Swiss Gold” initiative, may prove the most sensational.
