This is an up-dated comprehensive description in English of the Danish economy. International aspects are increasingly important for economic developments and therefore also for economic policy formation. This book takes its outset in this fact and provides an introduction to the structure and institutions of the Danish economy from an international perspective. The book provides a thorough treatment of key facts, but does also integrate analyses of recent developments as well as policy discussions. The book is designed for students in the first part of their education and for professionals and foreigners who want a comprehensive overview of the Danish economy, its institutions and its relations to the international economy. Furthermore, the chapters have been designed with reference to the use of the book, as both a textbook and as a handbook, for those who want to focus on special topics. "The Danish economy" has a broad non-technical approach making it useful for teaching but also for professionals who wish insight in the Danish economy.
