like i need another reason to love bjork

She’s going to save Iceland’s economy.

Also, that article reinforces basically every stereotype I have of Iceland being Utopia/another planet. I mean, this paragraph is describing an investment firm:

Audur is managed entirely by women. Tomasdottir and co-founder Kristin Petursdottir created it in 2007, reacting to what they saw as increasingly risky and aggressive behavior in the financial sector. “In investment banking in particular we’ve built on excessively masculine values,” Tomasdottir says. “I don’t think the problem is men, I think the problem is a lack of women.”

Their invest bankers talk like that? And then their union-activist lesbians become prime minister.
