Why is Switzerland so rich?

Why is Switzerland so rich?

(10:43) Can we learn something from the Swiss system? Comment from Barrin1, a Swiss person on YT: "Some mistakes that should be adressed: 1) No, you cannot have regular stores in Zürich open for as many hours as you like. 2) Direct democracy; you are confusing "petition for a referendum" with the "referendum". It makes more sense in german and can be very confusing in english. However: for the first one you gather signatures in order to make the legislative authority a law. The referendum challenges a law which has already been passed by the legislative authority. However, should the legislative authortiy chose to pass a law, which is to be part of the constitution there is an automatic referendum (no signatures required) and the bill / law need to get a double majority (states and popular vote). 3) Military; not everbody just the male. It is 3 weeks a year and no, we do not need to store the gun at home. We are allowed to do so. However, we are not allowed to buy ammo for it, w/o holding a special private license. 4) Funding a company in Switzerland is incredible difficult and risky as well. Sadly, the most important reason is missing: the dual education system.

What the hell is up with the music in your video? It is much too loud and at a volume much greater than your voice when you're talking. Extremely annoying and I will not watch another one of your videos if you continue doing that.

Switzerland can afford low taxes because it is a gangster-state with banking secrecy laundering $billions for drug-dealers, criminal organisations, kleptocrats, dubious family trusts and tax-evaders. Those organisations, like forgetful squirrels, bury their money away under false names, then get arrested, killed or deposed or betrayed by their middle-men who hold the keys and the secret identities of the deposit-holders. A huge section of the economy and their wealthy lifestyle is subsidised by the misery of the remainder of the world. The Swiss would do well to remember that we know this and that the "Kaeseglocke" is looking like it is made of increasingly thin glass.
