How Switzerland Saved Its Banking Industry

Et pourquoi ne pas être fier de la Suisse ? Pourquoi ne pas reconnaître la force de la place financière suisse ? A l’époque de la chasse aux sorcières, la Suisse avait été accusée de tous les maux. Aujourd’hui, ses efforts sont reconnus comme le témoigne l’article récent de Newsweek.

La Suisse est donc sur le bon chemin; Son capital de compétences bancaires et financières, sa stabilité et ses infrastructures économique en sont les principaux témoins … et ce n’est pas le groupe américain JPMorgan qui dira le contraire !

The Swiss faced one of the globe's worst financial-sector blowups. Now they're setting the gold standard for how to regulate their banks.

During the financial panic of 2008, the Swiss had more reason than most to be frightened. The country's banks, dominated by Credit Suisse and UBS, held assets worth an incredible 680  percent of Switzerland's GDP (compared with U.S. commercial banks' assets of 70 percent of GDP). No one knew how many of the Swiss holdings were toxic. What everyone knew was that these banks were far too big for tiny Switzerland to bail out in any full-blown banking crisis. Capital flight would crush the Swiss franc and the country's economy right along with it. There were scary parallels to Iceland, another small nation with an independent currency and outsize global banks. After a severe blowout, Iceland is now in a deep recession and on life support from the IMF.
