Investment crisis in Denmark
April 13, 2015
Copenhagen Economics has prepared a report (in Danish) for axcelfuture.dk on the level of private sector investment in Denmark. The report shows that private sector investment is at very low level in Denmark for the third consecutive year. The investment level is at its lowest since the Second World War, and new investments are barely enough to outbalance depreciation of the fixed assets in the private sector. As a consequence, the capital stock is slowly degrading, and the lack of investment leads to concerns over future job creation. Our estimates points out that the investment crisis has already resulted in a loss of approximately 25.000 jobs in Denmark, and if the current low level of investment continues the job loss could easily double to 50.000 jobs being lost. The report is the first in series of report for axcelfuture.dk on the investment climate in Denmark and the policies needed to improve it. You can read the report here Read more about the initiative on axcelfuture.dk. For further information contact Martin H. Thelle Sigurd Næss-Schmidt or
