Trends in Iceland

A study by Tinna Laufey at the University of Iceland has looked at behavioral changes in Iceland since the economic crash of late 2008. It reveals that all unhealthily forms of behavior (the ones they measured anyway, like consumption of alcohol, tobacco and sugary drinks) have fallen since late 2008. People are also working less, more people are getting married and more are getting a good night’s sleep. So recession = good?

    They’ve had pretty high inflation since ’08, on already expensive imports.

    Less money for booze and fags, working less as there’s less work about, and marriage tax breaks perhaps?

    Good sleep due to less caffeinated sugar water!
