Would the introduction of a Micro-Tax have an impact on the financial hub, where you think action needs to be taken?
Yes, the complexity and systemic risk are currently too high in the financial sector.
In the past, you have compared the conditions in the financial sector with a vehicle driving very fast in the fog, and are warning that the next crash is imminent. What additional precautionary measures do you recommend?
An important measure would be a certification process similar to what already exists in most industries. We need to examine to what extent new projects in the financial sector – that is, financial innovations – really benefit the economy.
Where in Zurich and region do you draw inspiration for your work?
I love the nature in Canton Zurich – the lake and the nearby mountains. The city's international appeal is also very inspiring.
