Financial hope for Iceland?

I am writing an essay for this blog on material tolerance in magick and was thus thinking of all the spells and rituals with extreme material requirements. The essay should be ready soon, but it got me to thinking:

Given the collapse of Icelands economy do you think we will see a revival of the NECROPANTS spell?

It's not quite the most disturbing ritual that I know, but its definitely up there. 
The Necropants were made with the intact skin of corpse dug up from a churchyard and worn as pants. You than place the stave (sigil) in the scrotum along with a coin stolen from a poor widow.  The scrotum than acts as a magickal coin attracting purse.
