For approximately three years, our governments, the banking cabal, and the Corporate Media have assured us that they knew the appropriate approach for fixing the economies that they had previously crippled with their own mismanagement.

The Icelandic GDP has only recovered to 92% of 2007 and only 90% of 2008. This abysmal performance mirrors almost exactly that of another country: Greece. The Greeks are actually better off since they at least managed to preserve their savings. Icelandic savers lost half of theirs to hyperinflation. Only a clueless observer would describe the episode as painless adjustment. Only a total madman would call it a miracle. I am also not convinced that devaluation of a currency would not be offset from other countries doing the same. On the other hand, they do compare favorable when compare to several developing Baltic countries.

Maybe, i didn't read the article closely enough, but i think the author misses 2 very important points about the Iceland experience; 1. Iceland jailed its criminal banksters. 2. Mortgages were written down to fair market value.
