News from Copenhagen Post

* Carlsberg about to lay off 150 employees in Europe.

* Discussion started whether or not cash transactions should be charged in order to give incentive for consumers to use more digital payments.

* Business failures are predicting to cost 26.000 jobs for Denmark in 2012.

* Importing educated immigrants is a money maker for Denmark, shows a recent economic research. Immigration is not a death for Danish welfare system, the irony is that highly educated immigrants are in fact saviours. A highly educated foreigner is defined as someone with an advanced degree - a doctor, lawyer, PhD, MA, MBA or similar. An average highly-educated foreigner who comes to Denmark with a partner and children, stays for 8 years and puts an extra 1,9 mln kroner into the state's coffers - even after using schools, hospitals and other state benefits - the study concluded. They found that where the immigrant comes from does not make a difference, more important are their areas of expertise. Furthermore, an average new-born Danish baby will end up costing the state more than he or she contributes in cold hard kroner. Read more from here.
