Michael Lewis on Iceland and its Financial Collapse

Why you never, ever want to tick off a great writer--especially not someone as good as Michael Lewis:

We assume they are more or less Scandinavian—a gentle people who just want everyone to have the same amount of everything. They are not. They have a feral streak in them, like a horse that’s just pretending to be broken.

Lewis castigates the entire Icelandic male race in explaining the country's financial collapse. You can read the full Vanity Fair article here.
