There's an idea that dates back at least to biblical times. There should be a moment when debts are forgiven. Its called a jubilee.
The jubilee has not gotten a lot of traction in the modern world. You may remember after the financial crisis, some of the Occupy Wall Street protesters were calling for a jubilee. But it basically ended there.
Today on the show: the story about a country that is actually trying a jubilee. Iceland.
