Pro

1). Switzerland has no inflation, as a matter of fact they have a 0.2% deflation.

2). Switzerland has a unemployment rate of 3.4%, the lowest in the whole world.

3). Switzerland has a fractional Reserve rate of 25%, the highest in the whole world, and currently they are voting on a bill to incease it to 100%.

4). In 2008, when the big banks tried theiir shi t and almost destroyed the economy, the US "fxed" the issue by giving the banks mfree money, Switzerland fixed the issue by arresting the banksters.

5). Switzerland doesn't have a minimum wage, they have a bunch of unions instead.

4 points to Pro (Conduct, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Forfeit.

[*Reason for non-removal*] As Con produced no clear arguments in the debate, even simply asserting that they deserve the win in the final round, this is treated as a full forfeit debate. Votes on full forfeit debates are not moderated unless the voter awards more points to the forfeiting side.

I would have loved to debate but I feel 5 rounds are probably a bit too long for this
