Anyway back to Switzerland, normally on a jaunt such as this the demographics of foreign tourists goes
Well on the way up the Jungfrau the list was completely different
This is exactly what globalisation is about and exactly why it is a good thing. When people bleat about "jobs going abroad", especially in IT, what it means is that someone elsewhere can do your job for cheaper, which means you need to improve your skills and offer something more... or (and I know its cruel) pick another career. In return those people who now have a better job, earn more money and want to get ahead will come and spend that money in the countries that are actually paying them... because Switzerland really is a cracking place to visit.
The end result is everyone gets a bit richer, and overall everyone is happier. Now I know it sucks if you find your skills out of date and replaced by either machines or people in cheaper economies, but that is exactly the system that works in the world, and exactly the system that has been created by the countries that are now complaining about it.
Globalisation of IT means more people from India spending money in the US and Europe, not just money going to India, and as bunch of tourists they are pretty considerate which is nice for a change.
