There's one thing I don't understand. Why isn't Monaco the richest country in the world? Why is the estimated GDP/capita well under that of Luxembourg?

Architecturally speaking, the whole C˘te d'Azur has been irreversably damaged by those ugly buildings from the 70s. Monaco's center town may be spendid ( so rococo ) but it has sincerely lost its magic.

I have been there 2 times. I recognize most of these places. It is one of Europe┤s most beautiful cities and it has very nice cars!
