This video, that I shot this morning in the outskirts of Gstaad, shows how well cows live in Switzerland. And it shouldn´t surprise you, since in Switzerland according to the Becker-Posner Blog, 68% of farmer’s income comes in the form of a government subsidy. A billion of people on this planet live on less than a dollar a day. The average European cow gets $2.7 per day, and Swiss cows get way more than that. Here’s another interesting article on subsidies and how unfair their distribution is.
If you understand Spanish here’s a similar article but the video has a special star.
