Everywhere I went, I was protected by Securitas. 'Big Bro Securitas' was watching me all the time. I enjoyed every minute of it, because of the predictable manners of Securitas-employees.

Also at their disposal are a brilliant research unit and an ultramodern computer, as well as a secluded country club withtennis courts and a swimming pool, a few kilometres outside of Basel.The membership of this club is restricted to a handful of powerful men who determine daily the interest rate, the availability of credit, and
