Dagens citat

"Iceland´s economic recovery from the crash of 2008 is not surprising. If bankers, aided and abetted by politicians, crash their country by running away with other people´s money to the tune of five times the country’s GDP, the country could expect to prosper unless the whole lot went up in smoke. Five times GDP is the IMF’s original estimate of the economic cost inflicted by the collapse on creditors, shareholders, and some depositors. Greater-than-expected asset recovery may have reduced the ratio to three or four."

Þorvaldur Gylfason, professor i ekonomi vid Háskóli Íslands, skriver i Vox EU om Islands ekonomiska återhämtning.
