Resource description

Over the last 25 years the Danish economy has had difficulties in growing as fast asother EU countries and the United States. While the average growth difference is small, itsignals that if this trend persists into the next century, Denmark will not be able to maintain itshigh position in the world income hierarchy. Moreover, during these years, the number ofindividuals living on transfer incomes have increased dramatically. Although we interpretboth tendencies as signals of structural weaknesses, we are also aware that these developmentsmay reflect that other goals in economic policy have been pursued, such as protecting theenvironment and/or achieving certain redistributive objectives. This paper analyzes this andother broad policy issues of importance for Denmark.
