Classical Liberalism and Modern Political Economy in Denmark

Author

Listed:
  • Peter Kurrild-Klitgaard

Abstract

Throughout most of the 20th century, classical liberal ideas were in decline in Danish public discourse, among academics and in politics. From circa 1980 a visible renaissance has taken place, both in terms of breadth and numbers, as well as institutional developments. The change has in large part grown out of Anglo-American developments in classical liberal scholarship.
