Government can loosen up the purse strings

Although various ministers have warned against increased government spending, international investors say that the Danish economy can sustain a higher level of government spending next year. Financial gurus say that the country need not fear higher interest rates, even if it invests capital in things like creating new jobs.

"Denmark's fiscal situation is seen as so much better than that of most other European countries that it does not really matter what Denmark does for the simple reason that many of our neighbours look much worse," said Torsten Sløk, the vice president of Deutsche Bank in New York. – Jyllands-Posten
