Iceland's Comeback is Based in Place
Reporter Jake Halpern pays a visit to a unique incubator in Iceland (that goes out of business soon after), but he still sees an interesting shift in perspective in the country:

Many Icelanders Halpern talks to cling to their Viking culture and relish a chance to prove their survival skills.
"The real value of the economic crash, one young woman told me, was that 'people are rethinking, Who am I as an Icelandic person?'"
