The week ahead Zika, cross-border shopping and a new breed of Swiss banker

Here are some of the stories we'll be following the week of July 10:



We take a hard look at shopping in Switzerland and nearby France when one of our journalists compares the costs of everyday goods on both sides of the border. How much can you get for CHF100 ($103) in each place?



The retail analysis continues with input from major Swiss supermarket chains and consumer organisations, shedding light on whether suppliers have passed on savings from the strong Swiss franc to consumers. 



Switzerland has 18 (!) living former presidents, probably a world record. What does that say about the country’s political leadership and stability? 



We check in with a Zurich research lab urgently trying to figure out whether certain mosquito species found in Switzerland are capable of transmitting the Zika virus. The first major worldwide outbreak of the disease occurred two years ago.



As regulations and digitisation transform the Swiss banking landscape, a look at the new breed of tech-savvy, mobile bankers who are stepping into the breach.
