I’m a huge fan of Switzerland, largely because its voters approved a spending cap that should be a role model for other nations.
It’s called the “debt brake” and it has helped reduce the burden of government spending in Switzerland at a time when most nations in Europe have been moving in the wrong direction.
But that’s not the only reason I like Switzerland.
I also appreciate the fact that Swiss voters seem to be much more sensible than voters in other nations.
In Switzerland, by contrast, voters are sensible where it counts most – in the voting booth.
Earlier this year, 76 percent of voters rejected a minimum wage hike.
Back in 2010, nearly 60 percent of voters shot down a class-warfare proposal for higher taxes on the rich.
And they’ve done it again. In a recent referendum, they defeated a government-run healthcare system by a landslide.
