Norway is about to get it along with most of the Nordic region.

Everyone eventually has to pay the piper. In this case their own governments inaction on the ECB printing fist fulls of money creates inflation. That inflation puts people in a tight spot so they borrow money to eat and pay rent.

It's not like Norwegians all of a sudden decided to buy 100k cars, no they more than likely decided to pay for groceries and fix their old car.

BTW this isn't going to get any better.
Norway’s overheated credit and property markets are vying with export-eroding krone gains for policy makers’ attentions as officials risk fueling either an asset bubble or currency appreciation.

Ezra Klein originally shared:
 
Newt Gingrich served in Congress from 1979 to 1999. After he resigned his seat, he settled down in McLean, VA and sought to forge a new career as one of Washington's highly paid, widely respected, wise men. He began his Center for Health Transformation and consulted for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He filmed anti-global warming commercials with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and co-authored New York Times op-eds with Sen. John Kerry. He served on the bipartisan U.S. Commission on National Security and as co-chair of a task force on UN reform. Newt Gingrich has, in other words, been a key player in Washington since Jimmy Carter was president. Yet in his victory speech in South Carolina, he blasted "the elites in Washington and New York." If Newt Gingrich is not a Washington elite, no one is.

And yet, after three decades among them, Gingrich certainly is not the candidate of Washington elites. Quite the opposite, actually. "It may be implausible that Gingrich can pose as anti-establishment," wrote the Washington Examiner's Tim Carney. "But the establishment is certainly anti-Newt." Well, the party establishment, anyway. For all Gingrich's attacks on the media, the media rather loves Gingrich, as he makes for good television, and gives good quotes.
