Three cheers for Iceland! Or rather thousands of glorious cheers.
Iceland imprisoned its bankers. Iceland put its people first. Iceland refused to save the banks and it allowed them to fail! Hooray for such a courageous folk!
And what of Iceland now? Iceland’s economy is growing fast; faster than the U.S. and Europe. The government created better banks and forgave the people much of their debt. The brave, fighting folk of the cold north are wise, with wiser leaders than we have in the United States.
Remember us, Iceland, as we begin our fight . . . for we shall remember you and your great victory and it shall help us in our own dark night.
