    •  By that... (0+ / 0-)

      do you mean "putting a small handfull of people in jail, only for outright fraud, Bernie Madoff/Enron style, but by and large letting those who caused the crisis off scott free"? Because that's what happened here. Only a few higher ups went to jail, and only for outright fraud.

      In Iceland, just like in the US, it's perfectly legal to ruin the world economy to line your pockets.

      The day I'll consider justice blind is the day that a rape defendant's claim of "She consented to the sex" is treated by the same legal standards as a robbery defendant's claim of "He consented to give me the money": as an affirmative defense.
