Coronakrisen comes everything else just to put his imprint on the early tender of the economic development in the second quarter, which Statistics Denmark shall publish on Friday morning.
But even if the economy has been squeezed, it is still among the most prosperous in the world. It says Mads Lundby Hansen, chief economist of the bourgeois think tank Cepos.
He refers to figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Here, Denmark had last year the syvendehøjeste prosperity among the 37 OECD countries.
the level of Prosperity is measured by the gross domestic product, gdp, per capita, which is taken into account købekraftsforskelle between the countries.
Apart from a period after the financial crisis is last year's Danish level of prosperity, it is the highest, as the OECD has measured for the last 50 years.
Thus, the danes are gone into in coronakrisen with a high level of prosperity, believes the Mads Lundby Hansen.
He points out that Denmark according to the OECD, stands to be less affected by the crisis than many other OECD countries.
- Thus, there is a possibility that we can keep the position in years. And indeed, it cannot be excluded that we will take the sixth place from the Island in 2020.
- Iceland is according to the OECD, a decline in gdp of almost ten percent in the year, while estimated a gdp decline for Denmark to almost six percent, says Mads Lundby Hansen.
A high level of prosperity according to the chief competition economist will be seen by the greater degrees of freedom in people's lives, including the possibility of more trips abroad.
Also on the public welfare have a high level of prosperity significance.
- If we are among the richest countries in the world, there is also better afford to pay for the latest and best treatment and medication.
- So, prosperity is hugely important, says Mads Lundby Hansen.
While the chief competition economist for this year is optimistic in relation to Denmark's position on the OECD list, he may well be a little concerned in the longer term.
It justifies with him, and that the current government according to him has a focus on increasing employment through new reforms.
in Addition, he believes that the government's proposals on tiered pension will pull hands and growth out of the economy.
