The Collapse of Iceland's Economy

Iceland was forced to take an emergency $702 million loan from Sweden to prop up its Swedish arm, while the Norwegian Banks' Guarantee Fund offered $819 million in liquidity support to the local unit of Glitnir.


The recent volcanic activity has also started to slowly destroy Iceland. It is slowing them down and causing economic destruction needing money to rebuild what has been destroyed by the activity.


They are going into serious debt and are losing everything they have because they can't repay what they took and need to find ways to find that money and pay it back.
