Serbian Prime Minister is also gay
Gonzales Frederic (16 days ago)
It is surely better to have a homosexual who is capable as a ruler for a ruler than to have a heterosexual like ldi Amin Dada for a ruler or a pedophile, murderer, rapist, slaver, thief like Muhammad.

This documentary is quite good. I have watched several documentaries made by this man. Usually they are accurate and pleasant to watch. But, at times, like the one on France in Africa, which was fraught with erroneous statements, they are not that good. This written, this man does make laudable documentaries.

You say 40% immigrants, but what is that break down? Certainly it isn't refugees or Africans. I assume French and German are predominant with English.

Luxembourg never picked up Africans, but only picked up a few selected refugees from a refugee camp in the Middle East by plane to their country! ---- Luxemburg nahm nie Afrikaner auf, sondern holte lediglich ein paar ausgewählte Flüchtlinge von einem Flüchtlingslager im Nahen Osten mit dem Flugzeug zu sich ins Land. ---- Il Lussemburgo non raccolse mai gli africani, ma raccolse solo alcuni profughi scelti da un campo profughi in Oriente in aereo verso il paese.

I'm from Luxembourg and I guess we have a big house and a really huge garden but I don't think my parents are millionaires, as they are teachers. and well I'm not sure but including tax they don't make a separate 5,000 Euros a month.

I've been to recently to Luxembourg, (for the 3rd time) but, honestly, I didn't see much of a "LUX" there;) Plus, is so small, that one can get bored easily within a few hours.

So most of Lux's wealth is from foreign corp? What would happen if all these corp. suddenly decide to go back to their country t9gether with their money?

Many gay men are good at business because of their charisma and manipulative abilities. They can charm the pants off anyone. They make good con-men or actors.

The only productivity of Luxembourg is cleverly exploiting some arbitrary, changing financial laws.
Lubhomir (2 months ago)
We also have gay prime minister. But he is conservative. So not much people really know about it. And that is good since we dont really have a problem is someone is gay. We have problem with agenda. It is basically the same as not accepting immigrants equals you are nazi.

Well.... When you speak about they high percentage of immigrants, you should point that those are European immigrants. When it comes to the African/Arabian migration, their expensive representative promoted for the whole of Europe: they are below the European average...

No spending on defence or migration for decades, a kind of switzerland. Also no repair- costs given for WW II, western-germany paid billions. A theft-banking system, they are mostly like pensioners now. Do one Why Luxembourg needs 200.000 more immigrants to bring things back in balance.

Alex Sorokin (3 months ago)
someone lucky, he was born in Norway, Switzerland or Luxembourg. And many, you have to fight every day with politics, economics and people. This is unfair, in my country fucking Germans killed half of the population during the war. And later the Soviet Union destroyed the economy in every country in eastern Europe. fucking unfair world. P.S. Now I have a small IT business, and in every country you can earn. But somewhere you do not interfere, but somewhere it is very difficult.

Luxembourg is successful and will remain rich because they think and plan decades in advance. They anticipated all banking and financial innovations and now preparing space exploration while other countries are struggling with past and present.

In the past I have been living in the UK and still have Amazon UK account as well as pay-pal profile. When I have used them while I was in Poland and paid with Polish card my money were charge by Amazon Luxembourg and Pay-pal Luxembourg not Amazon UK or Pay-pal UK. I am sure they do pay little if any tax on cross-border transactions too!

Okay, really like the idea behind this video channel (i.e. answering big questions about countries etc. that are informed, insightful and put forth in an informal entertaining style). But right there - the entertainment element gets annoying and distracting. The canned quasi metal rock soundtrack and those ear-jarring ripping-the-stylus-across-the-phonograph-record interludes...maybe if I took a Quaalude...no, that wouldn't do it. It's a sensibility thing. Trust me, I'm not alone on this.

Nice worthless graphs with unlabled axes. What do you mean "yes, do believe what you see, the economy of Luxembourg became two times bigger in less than six years." Uh... nobody saw that on that graph. It is literally impossible to have seen that on that graph. If you aren't going to bother using meaningful graphs, don't include any.

@Visualpolitik please make video regarding South Africa and the pending motion from Parliament to amend the constitution to approve land expropriation without compensation.In this video please focus on the impact it would have on commercial banks(agricultural debt),agricultural sector,employment and overall economy.Please look if land expropriation with compensation has worked(it failed) and why. You can also include the history but please we need an unbiased opinion not influenced by your background,race and education(which influences the whole debate)

It"s not really that openminded. The Luxemburgish people did not vote for this prime minister, they wouldn't have voted for gay marriage and behind closed doors many dislike their gay prime minister.

Disgusting. So, basically, a handful of guys from Luxembourg steal billions from other European countries by cheating the law, making american multinational companies richer by storming and putting concurence on european companies, which get weaken in the process. This is pure theft, bank's mafia and corruption.Who is the real ISIS? One brainwashed terrorist OR one luxembourg europeist corrupted dude who cheats and betrays his european neightboor? What a shame. Luxembourg should be punished and destroyed for their betrayal. The world is a deceitful place and the sharks are everywhere ready to bite.
