Wealth of the nation / Benedikt Stefánsson.

Title: Wealth of the nation / Benedikt Stefánsson.
Author(s): Stefánsson, Benedikt.
Date: 1990.
In: Iceland Review. (1990.), Vol. 28(3) (1990)
Abstract: Discussion of Icelandic economy, which is increasingly based on commerce and services rather than primary processing and industry. Comments on destabilizing effect of country's high rate of inflation and on repeated devaluation of Icelandic króna. Criticizes system of fishing permits, whereby total quota for year for each species is shared out among vessels (number has continued to grow rapidly, despite government efforts to curb size of fleet). Iceland now has largest workforce relative to total population in western world. If individual productivity is not increased, economic contraction is inevitable.
