Panama Papers Explainer (fall of Iceland’s leaders)

Vox is getting to be my “go to” news summary each day. This explainer about Iceland/Panama papers is short, useful, and includes a bit of humor…

  • Gunnlaugsson’s party has said it will simply name a new prime minister. But other parties might force an election. The current government was facing labor unrest and discontent long before the Panama Papers leaked.
    [Al Jazeera America / Ned Resnikoff]
  • The likely beneficiary of new elections would be Iceland’s Pirate Party, a left-libertarian coalition that might, or might not, move the country substantially to the left.
    [Jacobin / Vidar Thorsteinsson]
