A couple of weeks ago the NYT had a piece offering a dire prognosis about the prospects for the Danish welfare state. I pointed out that this assessment did not fit the data, with Denmark doing considerably better than the United States on most standard economic measures. Nancy Folbre also wrote about Denmark's welfare state in her Economix piece in the NYT last week. Today, the paper has a useful "Room for Debate" segment on the Danish welfare state. It would be great if this sort of exchange came about after every misleading article.
