Book Description: In central Switzerland, international companies enjoy tax privileges and set offices in large buildings just like those of The City in London. The managers and employees roam the streets of a small village in german convertibles or running clothes at lunchtime. G***core for instance is a giant wholesaler and mineral extractor. They own mines all over the world that pollute, provoke cancer with water intoxication, and has very low ethics when it comes to the workers conditions and salary. It is one of the worst company in the world but they hide right here in the beautiful landscape of the region ; behind buildings opaque facade or dark reflective surfaces. With no privileged access on site, central Switzerland allowed me to observe what makes no uproar, spy the discrete practices of traders and reveal the threat of a postcards haunting specter.
