The true story of the small island nation which beat the global economic crisis in the most unconventional of ways.

Iceland's incredible and improbable economic turnaround has become the stuff of legend. Many attribute the country's success to its adoption of draconian reforms: rejection of capitalism, nationalization of the banks, ousting the IMF and the politicians who had let this happen... But is that the whole story? Renowned journalist Pascal Riché decided to investigate. He traveled to Iceland, interviewing everyone from fishermen to the ministers and bankers who, in a last ditch attempt to bring Iceland back from the brink of disaster, sent their nation on a fascinating political and economic adventure. A captivating and accessible read, How Iceland Bounced Back: Surviving the Economic Crisis presents the facts behind Iceland's unorthodox approach to the crisis, and offers important lessons that economists and politicians of all nations would do well to heed.
"Don't miss out on this book: in little more than 100 pages, you will understand how Iceland found itself deep within the crisis of 2008 and how it made its way out. (...) A lucid and passionate retelling." – ALTERNATIVES ECONOMIQUES

Author's biography - Versilio

Versilio is an editor who publishes authors of novels and non-fiction works, both literary and commercial.

Versilio’s vocation is to concentrate on a restricted number of projects in order to be able to accompany them from their initial conception to the final manuscript, thus ensuring both their digital and paper editions with its partners (Robert Laffont, Albin Michel, Flammarion, Gallimard…).

In order to satisfy the ever-changing needs of authors and readers within a constantly evolving market not only in terms of both communication and direct distribution of information, but also with regard to social networks, Versilio created the Slog. A combination of a S[ite] and a [B]log, a Slog is designed to showcase an author's creative world, to keep readers permanently up to date with their favourite authors and give them a chance to share and discuss their interests with an online community.

Furthermore, in line with the growing demand from online bookstores and the explosion of new media and social networks, Versilio's team includes not only all competences necessary for digital publishing (software engineering, designing, production, marketing) but also for the production of audio and video contents contributing to their promotion and enrichment (podcasts, author interviews, book trailers, advertisements and animations).

Thanks to the implementation of these new solutions in their dynamic set-up Versilio regularly collaborates with leading players in various fields (including Amazon, Kobo, Fnac, Google, Apple, Twitter, &c.) to promote both their authors and their authors’ works.

Versilio shares offices with Susanna Lea Associates in London, Paris and New York, and therefore benefits from an international perspective on the world of books, and the challenges brought about by the evolution of digital publishing.
