I was just cleaning out my inbox, and found a PR email from April 2006. The title:
CEO of Major Icelandic Bank Disputes Dire Forecasts
The email from the PR firm was offering me the chance to speak with the CEO of Glitnir bank in Iceland.
One topic he was apparently willing to speak about: “Exaggerated concerns over loan portfolios.”
Ah, those were the days.
