    Default Iceland considering to adopt Loonie

    I wonder if the failed Irish economy would drag down the value of the Canuck buck? That would be good for Ontario exporters.

    Not sure I'm following what Ireland has to do with this?

    The Bermuda dollar is on par with the U.S. dollar and the two currencies are interchangeable.

    Could the same happen with a Icelandic "dollar" and the Canadian dollar?

    I am surprised that they prefer the canadian dollar to the norwegian krona.

    But anyways, suppose they took the dollar... they won't be able to print it!
