Iceland's Scandinavian-type social-market economy combines a capitalist structure and free-market principles with an extensive welfare system, including generous housing subsidies. The economy is highly affected by fluctuations in world prices for its main exports: fish and fish products, aluminum, and ferrosilicon. Prior to the 2008 crisis, Iceland had achieved high growth, low unemployment, and a remarkably even distribution of income. However, GDP contracted by 4.7 percent in 2009 and by 3.6 percent in 2010 and since 2011 growth has been weak, expanding only by 1.8 percent in 2014, as exports of goods and services struggled to recover at the same pace than imports. On the expenditure side, household consumption is the main component of GDP and accounts for 53 percent of its total use, followed by government expenditure (24 percent) and gross fixed capital formation (17 percent). Exports of goods and services account for 54 percent of GDP while imports account for 47 percent, adding 7 percent of total GDP.
