cross-border pizza anyone?

25 Feb 2015

Occasionally I find articles in the business section of newspapers and this one was in the Independent Business section

This is an article about the move of the Swiss Franc from being locked to the Euro for a four year period ending on 15 January 2015 and there was then a rapid and massive increase in the value of the Swiss Franc against the Euro.

The net result is that a pizza in Constance is considerable cheaper than buying one in Switzerland so people are ordering their pizzas from Constance and were having them delivered to Switzerland. The Border authorities have stopped this trade.

Read more about it in the original article on the Independent website:

The text of the article can be found here in a “clean” PDF format if you are interested.
