The Icelandic Economy – From Bust to Boom to Bust Again?

Þorsteinn Víglundsson, Director General, Business Iceland, is the keynote speaker at the IACC luncheon following the annual meeting. He will discuss the status of the Icelandic economy and answer questions from the audience.

What is the status of the Icelandic economy?  Is the economy overheating and is there another bubble around the corner?  How can we prevent another crash?  Is Iceland open for business and how healthy is the investment environment; capital controls, job market, inflation etc.?
