Unfortunately, due to the 2009 worldwide economic collapse, Iceland still suffers through a severe financial crisis.
The United States returned to Iceland in May of 1951, after the signing of a defense agreement, and lingered through the Cold War.
Post-war, Iceland's economy thrived due in part to the fishing industry and the Marshall Plan (an American program instilled to rebuild European economies and prevent Soviet communism from spreading).
He was quickly followed by more settlers from Norway, as well as Ireland, and by the mid-900's most of Iceland's cultivable land had been snatched up.
The early settlers put together a council to moderate the area which lasted until 1262, at which point the legislation became incapable of being able to deal with the increasing power.
