NARRATOR:
Iceland is a stable democracy with a high standard of living; and until

recently, extremely low unemployment and government debt.

ANDRI MAGNASON:
We had the complete infrastructure of a modern society; clean

energy, food production, fisheries, with a quota system to manage them.

GYLFI ZOEGA:
Good healthcare, good education; you know, clean air; uh, not much

crime; uh, it's good, a good place for families to live.

ANDRI MAGNASON:
We had almost, uh, end-of-history status.

NARRATOR:
But in 2000, Iceland's government began a broad policy of deregulation

that would have disastrous consequences; first for the environment, and then for the

economy. They started by allowing multinational corporations like Alcoa to build giant

aluminum-smelting plants, and exploit Iceland's natural geothermal and hydroelectric

energy sources.

ANDRI MAGNASON:
Many of the most beautiful areas in the highlands, with the most

spectacular colors, are geothermal. So nothing comes without consequence.
