Morning Macro Weekend Edition February 25 2017

For anyone who thinks that flexibility and social security are mutually exclusive, Denmark offers an interesting example. The Danes have what they call “flexicurity” – flexible labour market but at the same time offering social security and opportunities for education and learning new skills. But it’s also a country that combines high private debt with high productivity, and – for the time being – with unemployment at 40-year low.

This is what we hear on the Morning Macro Weekend Edition this week in an interview with Tore Stramer, chief economist at Nykredit, Denmark.
