Abstract

The Danish welfare state and flexicurity labour market model have a reputation for functioning efficiently, but is this assessment justified? How can the strong economic performance of a small, open economy be reconciled with a large public sector and a high tax burden? And how can such an economy cope with challenges like ageing and migration?
