Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What power does the lowly citizens of the EU have over the question of Icelandic membership?

Icelandinc membership will take place through a treaty. Any power that citizens have over their government entering into international treaties applies to Icelandic membership.

This is why I think Croatia will not join the EU: there's nothing to prevent Croatia's accession treaty from being defeated either by the Slovenian parliament, or the Slovenian people in a referendum.

The peak-to-trough part of the business cycle is an outlier. Carnot would have died laughing.
