Eric Weiner: Why Iceland is STILL happy (Video)

Posted: Updated:

Despite the economic crisis, author Eric Weiner still defends an assertion in his recent bestseller, Geography of Bliss, that Iceland is one of the happiest countries on earth.

Given that the country has gone bankrupt can that still be true?

(Cue banker joke: What is the capital of Iceland? Answer: $3.75)

True to his contrarian and cantankerous self, Weiner claims his assertion is even more true now. It turns out that Icelandic people get happy by being unhappy (or something like that).

Are you Icelandic? Do you agree?
