Abstract

Following the financial crisis of 2008-2009, the small country of Iceland decided to start afresh, and abandon its existing political and democratic institutions in favour of new, crowd-sourced arrangements. Thorvaldur Gylfason recounts the tale of how this idea was conceived and eventually abandoned thanks to political meddling. The lesson for the UK, he argues, is to keep politicians as far away from the process as possible.
