    Did I somehow skip over that in my read?

    Iceland took the unusual course of letting the banks fail,  preserving its social safety net and closing the gap between the middle and the wealthy which had recently grown.  They are not without their economic difficulties, but they have done better than those pursuing austerity.

    Now that's exceptional!

    We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!
