We’ve just had elections in Denmark and a new budget is being drawn up.

Denmark has the most expansive welfare state model in the world, but what lessons can we draw from how other countries do welfare? And what can and can’t be done if resources are stretched?

Get an international perspective on welfare state economics by one of the most prominent professors in the field, Nick Barr. Nick Barr is professor of public economics at the London School of Economics and the heart of his work is an exploration of how market failures can both explain and justify the existence of the welfare state.
