Island visar vägen

Nobelprisvinnande ekonomen Joe Stiglitz:

”What Iceland did was right. It would have been wrong to burden future generations with the mistakes of the financial system.”

Nobelprisvinnande ekonomen Paul Krugman:

”What [Iceland’s recovery] demonstrated was the … case for letting creditors of private banks gone wild eat the losses.”

Krugman säger vidare:

”A funny thing happened on the way to economic Armageddon: Iceland’s very desperation made conventional behavior impossible, freeing the nation to break the rules. Where everyone else bailed out the bankers and made the public pay the price, Iceland let the banks go bust and actually expanded its social safety net. Where everyone else was fixated on trying to placate international investors, Iceland imposed temporary controls on the movement of capital to give itself room to maneuver.”
