Bottleneck federalism

Swiss think tank Avenir Suisse organises a panel discussion about the pros & cons of Swiss federalism, which along with half-direct democrary is the major form factor of the Swiss political system. Remember, we're a tiny country, 41'000 square kilometers, some 7 mio inhabitants, but 26 cantons with some 3600 municipalities. You can imagine that things don't move fast around here - some also call it stability.

Check out the live feed of the debate here (Realplayer), starting tomorrow at 1600h UTC.
