Open books

It would be nice if one of the things that can be agreed on in “New Iceland” is that political parties running for office do so with their books open. 

Why should anyone want it to be a secret who their financial supporters are?

    Houston, we have a problem …

    Look at the photo – it’s that lying fool Asgeir Jonsson, from Kaupthing, in some sort of economic advising team. That’s great, hire the jackasses who got you into the problem to fix it. That guy should have been exiled to Greenland.

    Well it just goes to show you that a PhD only means you have a higher education but it definitely doesn´t mean that you know what you are doing! Google this guy and you will find the typical comments from a “suit” that doesn´t know his ass from a hole in the ground!
    It´s obvious this fellow has been educated beyond his intellligence.

    I think the only book that has been open in Iceland for many a year now is “Wealth of Nations”…

    These turds from the old banks and administration will be very difficult to get rid of. You keep flushing the toilet but the “lollis” pop right back up again — the whole system is tainted and poisoned.

    There’s a good letter (actually, a “rant”) from someone named Torfi Hjartarson called Ræningjar norðursins, þjónar þeirra og þrælar (.. stjórnmálamenn á Íslandi eru ekkert annað en leppar auðhringanna..)

    and lots more about the sleazy foreign business friends of the bankers, Tschenguiz, Candys etc. It would actually be quite funny if the results had not been so catastrophic.

    Please be critical, but spare us of this unsubstanciated rant, Vilhjalm and Roy. I guess you don’t know that besides being a very talented economist, Asgeir Jonson is also the son of Jon Bjarnason, a member of Althingi for the Left-green party. His academic work, articles and tenure at the Iceland Central Bank are also very well documented and revered. So he knows what he’s talking about and is trusted by the party taking power.

    And yes, I saw the Max Keiser interview, and it doesn’t cover Asgeir in any kind of glory. But to his defence I must say, that Max is a very funny person, and I understand why Asgeir was laughing. I mean, the line of questions were very good, but jovial.
