Once the seat of Viking raiders and later a major north European power, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation that is participating in the general political and economic integration of Europe. It joined NATO in 1949 and the EEC (now the EU) in 1973. However, the country has opted out of certain elements of the European Union's Maastricht Treaty, including the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), European defense cooperation, and issues concerning certain justice and home affairs.

Economic Overview

The danish economy has in recent years undergone strong expansion fueled primarily by private consumption growth, but also supported by exports and investments. this thoroughly modern market economy features high-tech agriculture, up-to-date small-scale and corporate industry, extensive government welfare measures, comfortable living standards, a stable currency, and high dependence on foreign trade. unemployment is low and capacity constraints are limiting growth potential. denmark is a net exporter of food and energy and enjoys a comfortable balance of payments surplus. government objectives include streamlining the bureaucracy and further privatization of state assets. the government has been successful in meeting, and even exceeding, the economic convergence criteria for participating in the third phase (a common european currency) of the european economic and monetary union (emu), but so far denmark has decided not to join 15 other eu members in the euro. nonetheless, the danish krone remains pegged to the euro. economic growth gained momentum in 2004 and the upturn continued through 2007. the controversy over caricatures of the prophet muhammad printed in a danish newspaper in september 2005 led to boycotts of some danish exports to the muslim world, especially exports of dairy products, but the boycotts did not have a significant impact on the overall danish economy. because of high gdp per capita, welfare benefits, a low gini index, and political stability, the danish living standards are among the highest in the world. a major long-term issue will be the sharp decline in the ratio of workers to retirees.
