Iceland was hit hard by the Great Recession, but they have applied common sense and logic to the problem and succeeded where nearly every other country in the west has failed. They have punished those responsible.
29 bankers have now been sentenced to prison for their roles in the crash. Just before Christmas, the former CEO of Iceland’s Glitnir bank and two other senior bankers were sentenced to jail terms of up to five years for market manipulation and breach of fiduciary duties.

So there is justice in the world. Sometimes you have to look really hard to find it though.

The misapplication of logic due to the ridiculous human belief that it applies to reality is what started the whole banking problem in the first place. Iceland did what it did because it was far from the logical thing to do and chose instead to follow a path of morality and fairness.

Thank you Elvandil, I understand where you are coming from with your post. I just think of the logical choice as being the moral and fair choice.
