So I read this thing the other day

that was all about what countries in Europe are doing well and not so well in this lovely Great Recession. It may have been Krugman's euro piece. But I read it on my phone, which makes bookmarking damn near impossible and now I can't remember. You know how it is, you read 8 million things a day and they all start to blend into an information smoothie.

Anyways, the take-away I got from whatever piece it was was that Iceland, having said fuck you very much to the foreign investors who were holding the country's economy hostage by refusing to pay the ransom, I mean guarantee the debt, is doing the best of all the failing European economies.

Huhm. Iceland, the transparent little country that could.
