The financial crisis of 2008 hit Europe hard and Denmark was no exception. According to a new analysis from Statistics Denmark, the country is still struggling to get back on track ten years after the crisis hit.

More Danes are unemployed now than before the crisis and it has taken longer for the country to stabilise compared to two other financial crisis’ the country has had in the last 35 years. Specifically the prices on single family housing is 8,4 percent lower compared to ten years prior.

Intended for anyone with relation to the Danish financial sector. Mainly EU-citizens.
