    Iceland PM: Europe Should Copy Us

    Europe should follow Iceland’s model of winning public support for austerity measures and returning to economic growth after a crisis, according to Iceland Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir. Speaking in an interview with Reuters, the union activist-turned-politician said the euro zone should learn lessons, such as how to mix unorthodox policies with measured austerity, from the tiny island nation.

    “We believe, and so does the IMF, that our case can be a role model for some of the countries in crisis now,” she told Reuters. “I’ve met with several leaders over the past years, some from Greece, and many prime ministers have been surprised by our economic turnaround and asked how we did it.”

    Europe should follow Iceland's model of remaining a homogeneous Germanic nation, which is what allowed them to come together and reach this sensible consensus.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    But they are not a homogeneous Germanic nation, they are about 50-50 Celtic and Germanic.

    Non-Germanic immigration to Iceland is horrible:/ When US had bases there, a lot of Icelandic girls fell in love with US soldiers. Icelandic politicians wanted to stop it, the mixing with Americans was not popular. Non-native mixture into the Icelandic population will have a small impact, they are only around 300 000 individuals there.

    But over the last one thousand years they have homogenized. And if you look on the genetic maps, we and the Irish cluster very tightly together.

    Interestingly, I've just been watching this clip on YouTube about Iceland's economic recovery and the means by which they achieved it ...
