  1. It has never been a secret how Switzerland’s bank secrecy laws have protected criminals of all stripes for decades. So, what else is new?

    • While the rest of the world looks on and does nothing, Sherman. Governments, institutions, regulatory bodies. I find that just as shocking as Switzerland’s bank secrecy laws.

  2. I agree, Juliet…..but, what can the rest of the world and especially The EU do to persuade the Swiss to change their banking policies…I suggest that would have as much an effect as King Canute trying to stop ocean waves.
