Iceland’s former Prime Minister went on trial today facing criminal charges for his role in 2008 financial crisis that brought the nation to its knees. Geir Haarde is charged with negligence for failing to prevent the bubble economy created by Icelandic banks that led to the whole financial sector collapsing and thousands of people losing their jobs and homes. It also ultimately led to Haarde getting kicked out of office.
Maybe we should be taking notes over here – and put Bush and Greenspan on trial for their crimes against the economy. That trial can begin right after Bush's war crimes trial ends.
