Denmark: Learn from It

Posted on: February 8, 2009

I keep mentioning Denmark in my replies to other blogs that use that rusty broken old “truthism” so often trotted out by right-wing posts. At the momeht I’m frustrated because someone asked me for my sources and I replied, twice, only to have my comment not appear.

So….

Denmark has the world’s happiest people. This was very widely reported, so it’s very easy to google and find many sources. Many of them list any number of other ways in which Denmark excels.  Here are three:

And it also has the best business climate (not speaking of weather). Who says so? Forbes. Know a better source?:

Well, possibly, The Economist:

So sorry, all those who believe the old chesnut.
