They were crowned the kings of capitalism. Europeans started to invest their savings in these magnificent banks. The sky was their limit. Icelanders were quite happy. They were already the prettiest and strongest. And now also becoming the richest. They ignored the voices of their finest economists that told them that this could not end well. They were satisfied with their new jeeps and houses, that they got from these super banks in credit. They pretended like nothing was wrong. One dark autumn morning in September, the shock came.
