German health care system is not worth the money
Although insurers and patients in this country spend a lot of money, provide doctors and clinics only mediocre performance. Germany is compared in the lower middle. Especially what recovery is concerned.

Belgians have 60 billion euros hidden in Switzerland
Undeclared Belgian clients in Switzerland holdings reach 60 billion euros, writes Saturday Echo based calculations Zucman Gabriel, professor at the London School of Economics, based on figures from the Swiss National Bank ( BNS).
In autumn 2012, Switzerland had begun discussions with Belgium in order to conclude an agreement “Rubik” which sought to tax the Belgian assets placed in Switzerland.We then spoke of 30 billion euros deposited by Belgians in Switzerland, but this amount will actually be twice as high. However, according to Mr. Zucman, the figure is a “conservative estimate.” “The data from the SNB are certainly in all of high quality: they cover all banks operating in Switzerland, including the many subsidiaries of foreign banks, as well as all fortunes are on deposit,” explains he says. “The problem is that statisticians do not seek to identify the real beneficiaries of the funds. Certain assets attributable to the Swiss actually belong to foreigners.”
