As a follow up to the interviews of Swiss bank employees who feel betrayed by the banks (http://isaacbrocksociety.ca/2012/08/28/interviews-on-swiss-tv-bank-employees-upset-about-their-names-being-disclosed-to-the-us/) Swiss Francophone RTS’ TTC (“Toutes taxes comprises”) has come out yesterday with a broadcast tracking the diminishing confidence that the Swiss have in the banks. The situation has been going on for at least a decade, probably starting with the SwissAir crisis: http://www.rts.ch/video/#/video/emissions/ttc/4243403-les-banques-dans-la-tourmente.html
There will be another Infrarouge debate tomorrow (Wednesday) on RTS, entitled “Special Program- Bank Employees: Has Switzerland Capitulated? http://www.infrarouge.ch/ir/1930-emission-speciale-employes-banque-suisse-elle-capitule
There is a FORUM at the bottom of the page, I would encourage everyone to sign up and post their comments, in French if possible, but if you can only write in English the post should also be accepted. It is important to constantly remind the viewers and readership of journalists like RTS Info that the bank-related issues are not only about FatCats and money laundering but also about lowly bank employees just trying to do their job and make a living, and people living in Switzerland, paying Swiss taxes, and being nonetheless chased by the IRS for double taxes, FBAR and FATCA, and being shunned out of even the most basic and neccesary banking services by many banks in Switzerland.
