Reports on the state of the nation’s economy done by OECD are viewed by the media, political leaders, economists and investors as some of the best and most independent looks at Denmark’s true economic condition. But a new analysis from homegrown labour group Arbejderbevægelsens Erhvervsråd (AE) questions just how much the OECD knows about the Danish economy and the reforms that have taken place in recent years. A recent AE analysis expected 275,000 more people to be employed over the long term than the OECD's prognosis and predicted that the retirement age would be 72 rather than the 68.8 predicted by the international sages. AE head Lars Andersen said that the differences suggested that the OECD “has not really mastered the Danish market".  – Politiken
