The Liberal-Conservative Danish government ignored disturbing economic developments, despite the fact that there were all sorts of reasons to act, and the Danish economy is steering towards a national economic disaster, according to Aalborg University Professor Jørgen Goul Andersen.
“The current situation is a national economic catastrophe. The Tax Commission proposals should have been shelved until better times. Denmark has more use of a Crisis Commission,” Jørgen Goul Andersen of the Department of Economics, Politics and Public Administration tells Reuters.
According to Goul Andersen, the population has been lulled into deception by the mantra that the Danish economy is ‘basically strong and sound’, as Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen has repeatedly said.
