Financial Times: Iceland’s Image Harmed

Published February 10, 2009

An article in the Financial Times contends that the conflict between
Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir and Central Bank chairman doesn’t
improve Iceland’s credibility in the eyes of the world. If the Icelandic government chooses to change the terms of its agreement with the IMF, the article continues, this could also harm Iceland’s image.
The article, however, rather than depicting Oddsson as stubbornly holding on to his post, contends that it’s actually Sigurðadóttir’s “childish political games” that are creating a problem. According to Morgunblaðið, anyway – we could find no such article at the Financial Times website. So the article being quoted is either subscription-only, is no longer on the FT website, or might have appeared on a website other than the FT.
