The high-hanging fruits

Since the mid-00s, a number of reforms have been implemented in Denmark, which have increased prosperity and improved public finances. We call them the “low-hanging fruits”. In the future, we need to harvest the “high-hanging fruit” in order to increase prosperity and welfare for the benefit of the Danes. But what does it take for us to reach them?

Danmark er kommet relativt godt gennem coronakrisen

Den 12. marts er det et år siden, at Danmark lukkede ned for at begrænse smitten af coronavirus. I dette notat gør vi status på, hvordan Danmark indtil videre er kommet igennem coronapandemien.
