More about the book
About the book
Danes love sharing, caring and communal singing, Auld Lang Syne, 99 bottles of Carlsberg, and public welfare for all. This sounds too good to be true – and it is. Like every great fairy tale, the model welfare state has a dark side. Carsten Jensen, tax-funded welfare authority at Aarhus University, reveals its soft underbelly, warts and all. Danes love public welfare services, and many would pay even higher taxes to get more – but only more of the services they use. And those who don’t subscribe to the good life, middle-class style? The answer is blowing in the wind.
