An economics article over at Brussels Journal discusses how Danish "Flexicurity" attempts to combine free market and protective elements in the labor force. The essay examines pros and cons, plusses and minuses, of doing things the Danish way versus the Swedish or French way. What are the results? What are the costs? Are there factors which make the Danish model difficult to duplicate?
This is the way economic discussions are supposed to happen. Rather than, for example, "these are only tax cuts for the rich!" or "the Republicans are abandoning the poor!"
I understand that it's not generally a higher level of discussion in Europe - but this article is.
