Its new breed of Viking Capitalism had become rock stars of the global finance driven economy, even while it was testing the foundations of Europes financial system. Eirikur Bergmann applies Postcolonial analysis to explain the paradigmatic case of Icelands fantastical boom, bust and rapid recovery after the Crash. His critical approach to the claims of the financialization advocates relates the questions of the national economy and globalisation to current trends in Europe and the World.
