Here is an excellent write-up about the Iceland crisis (in a nutshell: the story of how a prosperous, educated nation went bankrupt). I was especially interested to learn that the country is now under the helm of a female PM who seems determined to reinstate the old traditional values of modesty, hard work, and respect for others. I’ll be watching the whole thing with interest.
By the way, have any of you ever actually met a person from Iceland? I sure haven’t. They seem to be as thin on the ground as Kiwis.
