Economic expert Werner Vontobel classifies relevant economic topics.

The traffic jams are getting longer, the air is getting thicker. Therefore, expanding public transport only makes things worse. The better recipe is: Condense, skim off, stroll.

The municipal administration, schools, Migros, the baker, the family doctor, the café, the hairdresser, the plumber, the retirement home, etc. – the vast majority of jobs serve local or regional needs. So why are commutes getting longer and longer? Why does the average Swiss travel around 15,000 kilometers a year by car and public transport? Why are we spending twice as many hours stuck in traffic today as we did in 2010? Why do we take it for granted that traffic will continue to increase?
