For most of the 1900s Switzerland had a reputation as unassailable in its protection of financial data. A "Swiss bank account" was a passport to security and privacy of your financial assets. Which leads to the first question...
Where in the world would I locate if I wanted to set up a business that managed personal information? What country would provide the most powerful and secure means for defending a person's privacy, even to extremes?
Which leads to the second question...
What can I do to have legislatures compete for a reputation as the "Switzerland of Personal Privacy", leapfrogging each other to create privacy laws and agencies as happened in Europe?
I almost want a data haven.
