CHARLES FERGUSON: So a lot of people here lost their savings.

GYLFI ZOEGA:
Yes, that's the case.

NARRATOR:
The government regulators who should have been protecting the citizens

of Iceland had done nothing.

GYLFI ZOEGA:
You have two lawyers from the regulator, {STUTTER} going to a bank

to talk about some issue. When they approach the bank, they would see 19, uh, SUVs

outside, heh, outside the bank. Right? So you got to the bank, and you have the 19

lawyers sitting, uh, in front of you, right? They are very well prepared; uh, uh, ready to

kill any argument you make. And then, if you do really well, they offer you a job, right?

NARRATOR:
One-third of Iceland's financial regulators went to work for the banks.

GYLFI ZOEGA:
But this is a universal problem, huh. In New York, you have the same

problem, right?
