Politics, 2010

If you’re puzzling out the political trends for the 2010 election season, you could watch today’s primary results. But perhaps more telling as a leading political indicator is the recent election result in Iceland.

Jon Taplin, an astute observer of what he calls the “political interregnum,” takes note of the unexpected turn elections can take, when voters are just plain fed up.

“What is so interesting about Iceland, . . .  is the spirit of renewal in the air . . .   They have suffered from the excesses of the boom, just like we did, but they are determined to get on with the future and not just argue about the past.”

You can read Jon’s post here. It’s a short post, but must reading for U.S. politicians and engaged voters.

Hmm. I wonder what the cost of living is in Iceland.
