Rß­stefnustjˇrinn, Lesley Riddoch, forma­ur samtakanna "Nordic Horizons" Ý Skotlandi skrifar eftir farandi inngang til kynningar ß rŠ­umanni:

Jˇn Baldvin Hannibalsson is an Icelandic politician and diplomat who led the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and was responsible for Icelandĺs entry to the EEA in the 1990s.
Thatĺs an accurate but wholly inadequate description of the seventy-something who bounded into Scotland to speak at Nordic Horizonsĺ Brexit conference, wowed the audience, met Nicola Sturgeon and Mike Russell along with Faroese MP Bjort Samuelsen and then bounced onto STVĺs Scotland Tonight the same evening before flying back to Iceland with his wife BryndÝs Schram, an actress, linguist, writer and TV personality.
His short but pithy TV contribution was still doing the rounds on YouTube as Jˇn Baldvin touched down at Keflavik.

1. From Rags to Riches

Icelanders began the twentieth century as the poorest of the poor in Europe. During the course of the century, we went from rags to riches. Around the end of the century, Icelanders had become the third richest country in Europe ľ in terms of income per capita ľ only surpassed by Luxemburg and Norway. Three small countries, by the way. Perhaps already a lesson to be learned.

Three major factors explain this success story: (1) home rule, (2) access to foreign capital, (3) tarif-free access to foreign markets. We could add a high level of education, speeding up technological transfer. Icelanders were never so poor, that they were illiterate.
