What I meant was that if I was a billionaire, I probably would not find it that big a deal to pay that type of money for a place in a location like the Riviera.

Obviously, I'm NOT a billionare or else I would not be trolling message boards discussing Royals and aristocrats... and growing more bored by the millisecond. I should think I'd be fairly busy.

Kitty the government housing is probably for citizens and essential personnel eg. police, fire, Drs. I am sure some of the original Monegasques would be priced out of Monaco if it weren't for government subsidies. Catering to the wealthy is a double edged sword.

A proportion of Monegasques cannot afford the house/flat prices in Monaco. They tend to look for less exorbitant prices and find themselves apartments outside the Monaco borders, hence the large number of motorists from the "communautés limitrophes" - i.e. those who live outside Monaco, but close to its border.

These are some of the people PA has invited to the free concert and other events.

The Attractiveness of Monaco - part two:

On Tuesday, June 21st, 2011, the Jeune Chambre Economique de Monaco (JCE) will launch the "Monaco en chiffres, 2011" publication from IMSEE (Institut Monégasque de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques), at the Hotel de Paris, Monaco.

The Attractiveness of Monaco - Part Three

It seems to me that PA has chosen the Jeune Chambre Economique de Monaco to contribute to the "attractiveness" agenda in a big way.

In June alone, there have been eight different events organised by JCE.

The Attractiveness of Monaco - part four - but for whom ?

Albert and his Government have a difficult job keeping track of undesirables and serious criminals, despite having good border surveillance.
But the border still seems to be porous, as these latest reports show:

Roberto Cima, considered as one of the Top 100 of the most dangerous mafiosi from Calabria, was apprehended at Ventimiglia (Vintimille), close to Monaco.

Seems like "border control" problems are going on all over the world, which imho would be solved if people just stayed amongst their own kind, in their own countries, in their own barrios, and stopped crossing the border where they are not welcome.

Troublemakers have existed from the beginning of time, and Monaco is not exempt, where there's a will there's a way, which is two-fold, unfortunately.

Such a small country, I hope they can do something about it.

Renata, no more than any other country. Their crime rate is fairly low.

But I'm not talking here about pickpockets or parking tickets.
The report was about one of the Top 100 mafiosi slipping to and fro the border.
Corsican criminals are also active. And there are oligarchs in Monaco...

A small country like Monaco can be destabilised by all the above.

Renata, that took place in France and Italy, not Monaco. You do not have to go through Monaco to go between Nice and the Italian border.

Attractiveness of Monaco - part 5:
On July 8th, Michel Roger (Minister of State), Henri Fissore (Monaco's Ambassador), Marco Piccinini (Finance Minister) and other important Monegasques will kick off the next tranche of "L'attractivité un an après"

It will be a working breakfast (but in great luxury, in the Café de Paris).

The purpose is to launch the package "Jeune entrepreneur" which is a collaboration between the Government and the JCE jcemonaco@jcemonaco.mc

In the evening, there is a Grande Soirée at the NIBOX Monaco panoramic roof terrace.
Still on the topic of Attractivity, but specifically on professional career opportunities for young persons.

Attractiveness of Monaco part 6: to be an international sports hub

Okay, so there is the Grand Prix, the Rallye, the Rolex, the Masters, the Football and more ...... but can Monaco offer something that other sporting countries lack ??

*******************************************************
The HERCULIS event is based at Louis II, but the it's been done before....

That's fine if you are born in a beautiful, prosperous country.
But if you were born in some hellhole where you could barely survive (and your family was suffering), wouldn't you try to seek a better life elsewhere?

The US wouldn't be a country if there was no immigration. Even the Native Americans came from Asia.

Most Americans are fine with immigration as long as it's legally done. It's the illegal immigrants they take issue with.
