Demographic Dysphoria: Swiss Village Offers Families Over $70,000 To Live There

Tyler Durden's picture

Across the world, demographic dysphoria is taking shape, creating numerous headaches for governments. To avoid the next economic downturn, governments are searching for creative measures to increase population growth and deliver a sustainable economy. In Europe, a near decade of excessive monetary policy coupled with a massive influx of refugees have not been able to reverse negative population growth– first spotted in 2012.

As for Switzerland, a small mountainside village near Leukerbad in Canton of Valais called Albinen, is now experiencing a population crisis. The village of 240 inhabitants is one many areas in the country experiencing a mass exodus in recent years.

The report blames depopulation on Switzerland’s younger generation moving to big cities in attempt for a better life. With declining population, the village’s economy has come to a halt with local businesses closing up shop. Even the local school system had to shut down because activity in the area is non-existent.

Among the remaining residents, widespread panic has reached the village’s council, with locals demanding officials do something to reverse the declining trend and improve the economic outlook for the area.

 In a last ditch effort to avoid a total collapse of the local economy, officials are now offering 70,000 Francs ( 71,467 US Dollars) to families (of 4) under the age of 45 to move in and settle down for 10-years.

Here are the strict rules,

The communal council has accepted the initiative and has drawn up a regulation which provides financial assistance for anyone who would deposit his papers in Albinen. The planned amounts are 25,000 francs per adult and 10,000 francs per child. A family of four would thus receive 70,000 francs. The financing of the operation would go through the creation of a fund in which the municipality would pay 100,000 francs annually.

 

The offer is, however, subject to certain conditions. The interested parties must be under 45 years old. They must make a commitment to reside at least ten years in the commune, specifies the president. The minimum amount of their investment is set at 200,000 francs. It can not be a second home. Real estate complexes of investor groups are excluded from the offer.

Tour Albinen from above:

The village’s local newsletter explains why officials want to pay outsiders to live in their community,

It is an investment in the village’s future, adding that the community will profit from the new families through taxes, construction contracts and purchases in the village shop, while young people will bring life back to the village. In a best-case scenario, even the village school will reopen.  

Thomas Egger, director of the Swiss Association for Mountain Regions (SAB) said, “the rural exodus is an insidious phenomenon that spans several decades. The only closure of a post office is not yet a warning signal, but when the last store, the last restaurant closes, the doctor has no visit, the situation becomes dramatic”.

Over the years, many mountain municipalities have implemented creative measures to attract new residents. Several municipalities have, in the past, offered rebates for the purchase of land or housing. Some municipalities offer public transportation or even discounts for goods and services to new residents.

In a poll, one Swiss Newspaper asked: “would you be ready to settle in Albinen against 70,000 francs?” The overwhelmingly response of 3,257 participants was - No.

Perhaps in a preview of things to come, mountain regions in Switzerland offering cash for outsiders to live in their communities is an act of desperation and demonstrates demographic dysphoria is full steam ahead in the western hemisphere. It’s only a matter of time before larger municipalities take note and offer similar packages. We think this could be useful in the United States for cities like Baltimore and Detroit where population totals have hit record low levels.

Or they could start a war in a neighboring continent, then welcome the resulting refugees with open arms.

It worked for Germany.

Forget villages, hamlets, and small towns. They are doomed. Millennials all want to live in big cities where the welfare is good, Internet connections are fast, coffee houses abound, and government is there to wipe your butt.

I enjoy a nice soy latte, curled up on the couch in my Snuggie and binge watching Girls on Netflix.  I wish I had a girlfriend to enjoy this special time with me.  I asked one once, but she had to stay home and wash her hair that night.

There are many Latin American families who could make the move, become good workers, and eventually fit in.

It would take them a while to adjust but being part of Western Civilization, they would assimilate in time.

Their children would be given good educations and would eventually become part of the wider society.

There only needs to be a way to weed out the ones with chips on the shoulder and bring in the ones who want a better life for themselves and their children.

And there are always the industrious white South Africans who are hounded and attacked by the new management and their goons.

They would fit in easily and would contribute greatly to the prosperity of the town.

The problem might be that since the NWO psychopaths have decided that white South Africans are baddies who don't fit the multicultural mold, the Swiss might be foolish enough to overlook their vast potential for Switzerland.

The terms "racism" and "multiculturalism" are only fake words to control white populations.

The sooner they are ignored and deleted as lingua franca the better for us all.

Valais, some of the best skiing in the world. Verbier, ect. Great wine, french speaking girls. I am in!

Why do they refuse to take anyone over 45?

I would happily forgo the financial inducement if they would let me retire to Switzerland. I am white, Christian, have no doubts about my gender and would not demand any special privileges or accommodations, or education for my offspring, nor would I demand to bring in dozens of relatives. I would be self-supporting and would cause no problems for them. I would buy my own health insurance and pay Swiss taxes. I would even be happy to let them have the remains of my estate after I was gone.

The Swiss should be selling themselves as a retiree haven. They would probably be able to fill all their empty villages very quickly and their culture would not be compromised.

Geez, sex and reproduction is SO much more lucrative than hard work. In an era when more educated people abound than ever before in history, it is amazing that the only method humans can concoct to create a viable economy is birthing. Western economies must need children to work on farms and in factories, like in the 19th century. The only thing economic stimulus takes is more young families, even though the world is full of impoverished nations brimming over with young families. Alert them to this money-making proposition.

Simple. They want lifetime tax mules and you get that by making babies and keeping them local. Nothing wrong with that as long as the taxes go to maintaining the streets and other infrastructure necessary for modern life. It's wrong when the taxes are used to subjugate other nations and fuel rampant corruption. Case in point, the US and most of the EU.

I looked at that comment and at first I thought you were being negative,  but after about 200mS I realised each sentence and phrase rings true.   Older people escaping all that move to those places but it just delays the inevitable

All the citizens of this village will be relocated under UN Agenda 21 /2030 anyway, so what is the point of all this?  They will then be sent to a Mega City and their village, burnt to the ground /demolished as part of the plan.

Going about it all wrong. Offer large welfare payments and the "refugees" will flood the joint. Of course will have to put up with a rape or three...... but thats just the cost of business.

It's worse than that. Once in the country, they'd be off to Zurich within the hour. 

Scotland at one time tried to address the same demographic issue with immigration incentives. It seems that many immigrants were just using Scotland as the entry point to London.

Scotland as a nation, it seems, is increasingly anywhere but on the territory itself. They have cities, but England has the jobs, the climate, and whatever else it is that millenials want. 

Within England itself, the booming southeast, will one day be an enormous suburb of London, with dwindling countryside. It isn't just immigration, but also the rest of England is gravitating there. Not even the insane property prices can deter people. A £70k incentive to live in Scotland, or be subject to crippling debt to live in a rabbit hutch in London, it seems there would be no contest. This is a tough issue. FOMO, 'Fear of missing out,' there is no price high enough to deter people from being 'where it's at.'

all very true, trouble is once you pass your 20s its a depressing shithole to live in,  while Scotland (outside the cities) is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  Same everywhere , people follow the money, did it myself for too long.

Bemused Observer's picture

Scotland, yeah, not a good place to try the immigration-thing. It's not the jobs or the climate, it's the people. Clannish folk who live in the mountains are NOT going to welcome immigrants...period.

Scotland, Afghanistan, the Caucuses, the Appalachians, the Ethiopian Highlands, etc...ALL populated by independent-minded, tough, clannish folk who do not tolerate outsiders. This mindset goes way back, it's ingrained in their cultures, so you aren't going to dig it out of there. The pre-human life that developed there probably had the same attitudes, going all the way back to bacteria, where the McArchaea Clan were the "Chechens" of the primordial ooze. The few liberals who live in the cities do NOT change the mindset of the country/region.

They’ll pile in there for $70k. Don’t worry.

what they need is a mosque. i can help them outsource a young, promising 3rd world architect and couple of pakis to build it.

seriously who is stupid enough to fall for a rebate and live below zero other than some seriously disturbed sociopaths. why not just let the demand settle the price? crooks. bs subsidy trap.

Good idea.  Ship them the goats but clean them up first and photoshop aapplication photos so they look like suburbanites, then doctor all their information.  Put jew last names on the submission forms, swiss always trip over themselves to suck yid dicks.

Thinking about changing my name to Mohammed Goldstein. I will be right in there then... Open up a pig farm in the village and prosperity would prevail...

Goverment has squeezed the life out of small towns like that. Remove the crushing tyranny of progressive government and I bet people could afford to live there. And would.

It obviously costs too much.

The progressive stupid, it burns.

Who pays the bill for the 70k? If it is local people won't they want to move away from high taxation? This looks like a good way to shrink the town even faster.

The EU planners are footing the bill.

Many Americans don't travel to Europe anymore. Even cruise ships are now prefering Asia and Australia to Europe.

Who wants to see see africans sleeping all pover the sidewalks and/or get assaulted by a rapefugee?

Europe is spiraling down into the cesspool as the migrants take over. The home of culture that gave us Mozart, Palestrina, etc will never be the same.

But who wants to travel to america to see fat people living in tent cities?

Visit Poland. Great people and great place without the problems you mentioned.

Spent 4 months traveling Poland last year based out of Kazimierz Dolny. Excellent restaurants & food at very low cost. Very pretty girls abound ... if I were 40 years younger I would have been tempted to do some courting.

Gotta watch out for speed traps - Polish police are very good with Radar Gun ambushes. Waze is a great navigation App that works all over Europe.

Son of Loki's picture

ok, Poland and Hungary and perhaps a few other areas are safe and fun. That's true. Budapest is still great from my first hand experience.

All the white homeless have moved to CDG Airport, to escape being attacked by the invading hoardes no doubt...

Why is it that these generous offers only come from places with a crappy climate? I hear they're giving would-be Siberian settlers great deals too...

Why aren't any of the warmer countries giving this a shot? Lure in people who can invest, and spend, and produce, in return for a nice little tropical villa? I'd relocate to Costa Rica to give it a shot, but not to the Alps or Siberia.

There was something about homes for sale dirt cheap in Southern Italy last year or much earlier this year.

Europe...I don't know...although, if they keep taking in rapefugees at the rates they're going, some of the countries they're coming from might start looking better...:-)

In summer a very pleasant stopover for lunch.

In winter, 50-100 centimeters of snow, below freezing, gloomy grey, for months.

MANY km to nearest serious healthcare and shopping.

And every direction is either steep uphill or downhill.

Plus the delightful Swiss income taxation system, including an income tax to support religion - YIPPPEEEE!!!!

in some parts of the world this is known as skiing! ;)

When I was young I would have agreed, but as an old man with arthritis,  snow &  cold are pain without benefit. If you are lucky, you too will get to this stage of life.

amadeus39's picture

You call that luck? Getting to a life stage where pain is the norm. Suicide is painless and the outcome is eternal peace. Romans knew a bit about growing old. It ain't for sissies.

 

 

InnVestuhrr's picture

The alternative to getting old is dieing young, ie very UNlucky.

I've had both robust youth and decrepid old age, and although old age really sucks, yes, not for sissies, it is infinitely better than dieing young. If I decide to exit myself, I will be taking with me those who deserve less living, which will give me a sense of purpose and some reason to celebrate.

You just have to find the source that has a suitcase Nuke... WE know who has them but they are not going to give one up easily... Guess they used most of the existing ones on 9/11.
