UBS wrote to us and said they could free of charge ship their publication "Switzerland in Figures". We were quite exited and thought a large leatherbound exquisite portfolio might arrive.
Instead a small paper pamphlet came and then [astonishingly] I found it is available publicly from UBS on the web. I was not so special after all !
These are the other pages so we can all learn something
What did I learn, especially about the Canton in which we live (Vaud, VD)
- 733,000 People in Vaud
- Almost 24% are foreigners, Wahoo!
- Canton revenue 8797 M CHF
- Canton expenditure 8791 M CHF, we balanced!
- 6% of the Vaud inhabitants are Millionaires
- 62 new car registrations per 1000 per year
- Foreign trade surplus
- Housing vacancy rate 0.56% !!
