1. ¿Cómo logra Dinamarca el desempleo tan bajo en el 2008?
El desempleo en Dinamarca se logra a través de políticas fiscales prudentes que iban en beneficio de promover el desarrollo de la infraestructura y legislación laboral que reformaba el marco laboral donde el gobierno, el empresariado y los sindicatos contribuían todos para el desarrollo y beneficio de la sociedad danesa. No fue un cambio de corto plazo sino fue un cambio de que se inició muchos años atrás y donde el enfoque de todos los ciudadanos era el de formar una sociedad de bienestar pero que sea sostenible en el tiempo. 2.1 Explique las causas del éxito del modelo de Dinamarca.
La principal causa del éxito del modelo de Dinamarca para obtener un desempleo tan bajo es la utilización del modelo de flexiseguridad. Según el portal web ABC.es (2012) la actual primer danesa Thorning-Schmidt indicó en la reunión en Copenhague que el modelo que combina flexibilidad y seguridad es un sistema que ayuda a reducir el desempleo crónico en países como España. En la sociedad danesa la fórmula es bastante sencilla, es muy fácil contratar y despedir lo que facilita la movilidad y capacidad de adaptación para los empresarios. El empresariado cuando desea despedir a un trabajador le da tres meses para buscar un nuevo trabajo y no recibe ninguna indemnización. Durante este plazo el gobierno conjuntamente con la empresa ofrecen cursos de capacitación y de reincorporación al sistema laboral, en caso el trabajador no logre conseguir trabajo el gobierno con el empresariado subsidian a través de un bono de desempleo a los trabajadores desempleados. El gobierno ha creado un conjunto de estímulos fiscales en impuestos donde promueve la inversión de determinados sectores y a los sectores que más deterioran el medio ambiente aplica un impuesto mayor.
En conclusión las causas del éxito del modelo danés netamente se debe…...

Globalization

...Mashell Chapeyama Uopeople What ways has globalization not worked Globalization has not worked in a number of ways. One reason is how the rules evolved due to globalization. Most of the rules favour developed countries. They leave the poorer countries worse off. Globalization has increased a lot of imbalances. For example instead of funds moving from richer countries to poorer ones the reverse is true. A lot of resources are moving from poor countries to richer ones. There has also been an imbalance on investment in technology. Technology advanced in rich countries. In poorer off countries technology has lagged behind, meaning that richer countries would benefit. Debts of poor countries are a sign that globalization has failed to work. Poor countries get short term loans. The rich countries peg the moneys in hard currency such as GBP or USA$. So when countries accrued interest payable, it is too big if translated into domestic currencies. This means that poor countries get poorer, yet richer countries become even richer. What are the principal causes? The real causes of such imbalances and problems are many. One problem is that of ideas promulgated by IMF and World Bank, through their policies. They give policies that are “one size fit all type.” This means that some countries cannot afford those measures. One underlying issue is that economic globalization has fast-paced political globalization. Economic globalization requires countries to integrate and be......

Denmark

...Denmark originally applied to join the European Economic Community on August 10, 1961. They strategically applied for membership one day after the United Kingdom had applied. French president Charles de Gaulle had vetoed the British application to join the European Economic Community. After the United Kingdom’s rejection, Denmark had declined the membership because they did not want to join the EEC without the United Kingdom’s admittance. Years later, the United Kingdom once again applied for membership to join the European Community. They joined on January 1, 1973. When Denmark had seen that the United Kingdom had joined the EC, they decided to apply for membership and became a member at the same time as the United Kingdom (Europa, 2013.) There are many reasons for a country to join the European Union. Each country has certain interests that they will benefit from by joining. Denmark is one of the most competitive economies in the world. I will now talk about why Denmark had joined the European Union, what issues the country faces and show why Denmark has such a competitive economy. Denmark had joined the European Union in 1973. There was a vote by the Danish population and 63.3% were in favor of EU admittance. The population saw the benefits of joining the EU and believed that this would help the country. From the start Denmark strategically joined because the United Kingdom had confirmed that they would join the EU. The reason for this was because......

Globalization

...communication and exchange. The term is sometimes used to refer specifically to economic globalization: the integration of national economies into the international economy through trade, foreign direct investment, capital flows, migration, and the spread of technology. However, globalization is usually recognized as being driven by a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural, political, and biological factors. The term can also refer to the transnational circulation of ideas, languages, or popular culture. Definitions An early description of globalization was penned by the American entrepreneur-turned-minister Charles Taze Russell who coined the term 'corporate giants' in 1897. However, it was not until the 1960s that the term began to be widely used by economists and other social scientists. It had achieved widespread use in the mainstream press by the later half of the 1980s. Since its inception, the concept of globalization has inspired numerous competing definitions and interpretations. The United Nations ESCWA has written that globalization "is a widely-used term that can be defined in a number of different ways. When used in an economic context, it refers to the reduction and removal of barriers between national borders in order to facilitate the flow of goods, capital, services and labour... although considerable barriers remain to the flow of labour.... Globalization is not a new phenomenon. It began in the late nineteenth century, but its spread......

Denmark: Globalization and the Welfare State

...Denmark: Globalization and the Welfare State * 1. Is Denmark prosperous because of, or despite welfare state? Sigurno je blagostanje in uspešnost države Danske vezano na njihovo socialo državo. Danska je, zaradi kombinacije visoko socialne države, efektivnega javnega sektorja in uspešnega privatnega sektorja nodi uspešno okolje za razvoj podjetništva, privlači tujo delovno silo in podjetja. Lahko tudi rečemo, da so visoki davki, ki zagotavljajo visoko socialno varnost, prinesli srečo in uspešnost. Tako je the Econimist Intelligence Unit v letu 2007 proglasil Dansko za najboljše mesto na svetu, ki je primerno za uspešno poslovanje (ena od držav, kjer je najlažje začeti nov posel), v letu 2008 pa je mednarodna raziskava pokazala, da so Danci najsrečnejši ljudje na svetu. Več kot 60% jih za sebe lahko reče, da so zelo zadovoljni z svojim življenjem. Tako jim recimo pripada 25 dni dopusta na leto in 37 urni delovni teden. 2. How did Denmark achieve 3% unemployment in 2008? V sredini 80'h ter v začetku 90'h let je mednarodna konkurenca privedla Dansko do povečanja nezaposlenosti, Danska vlada je v tem času močno povečala socialne izdatke, da je pokrila povečano nezaposlenost, zgodnje upokojitve .. itd. Potrebna je bila nova strategija, ki jo je uvedel Paul Nyrup Rasmussen, tako imenovana »flexicurity«. S to reformo so hoteli doseči bolj prilagodljivo ekonomijo brez rezanja socialnih ugodnosti. Tako so dali podjetjem možnost hitrega odpuščanja......

...Danish, Egyptian, and U.S. Action-Adventure Fans KARIN GWINN WILKINS1 University of Texas at Austin This article explores how being an action-adventure fan resonates with articulations of national identity, attitudes toward other nations, and fear of global terrorism in the United States, Denmark, and Egypt. Action-adventure film relies on global Hollywood production, yet the reception of this genre works quite differently in the cultural contexts of communities and affinities of fans. Being an action-adventure fan appears to bear a close relationship with a tendency to exhibit fear of global terrorism and to conceptualize Americans as heroes, particularly among U.S. audiences. Danish and U.S. fans seem more likely to want to cast Egyptian characters as villains than their non-fan counterparts, whereas Egyptian fans prefer Danish characters to be villains. Limited characterizations in this genre inspire and reinforce the imagined scenarios of fans in which American heroes are justified in crucifying foreign villains. Keywords: action-adventure, political attitudes, United States, Denmark, Egypt This work explores how action-adventure fans based in Egypt, the United States, and Denmark map their own and others’ nations and fear of terrorism through their engagement with action-adventure film. Research on the potential consequences of consuming problematic narratives and stereotypes is beginning to offer empirical evidence of our need to be concerned with the Orientalist......

...Globalization Nowadays people have become closer than before. Services and goods produced in a country will be available to sell in the other countries. We hear about globalization in the news every day, read about it in the news papers and hear people talking about it. Globalization is the interactively international and nearness of economies. The world is not a large and strange place anymore. We live in a place that is interconnected and intertwined. The world has become from a place that each country and their peoples are separate and isolated to a place that each country and their peoples are part of a global network. Thanks to globalization this is occurring. It is the process that has led to the diverse parts of the globe becoming much closer to each other (Slaughter and Swagel, 1997). Globalisation is the procedures by which the people around the world become connected to each other in all aspects of life, culturally, technically and politically, economically and environmentally. Globalization assists improving technology that benefits many people in throughout the world. By increased the spread of cultures, trade, information and creating options, Globalization can be highly beneficial to everyone by bestowing great fortunes on us. This essay will highlight some of positive and negative effects of globalization. Globalization is the ‘international integration” or ‘de-bordering’ – “a number of highly disparate observations whose regular common......

Globalization

...When discussing a complex issue such as globalization, it is important to set forth having a solid foundation. Having a clear and concise understanding of the denotative meaning of globalization is important in order to eliminate any confusion. The Miriam Webster definition of globalization is, “the act or process of globalizing : the state of being globalized; especially : the development of an increasingly global economy marked especially by free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheaper foreign labor markets.” (MerriamWebster) This definition highlights both the causes and perceived effects of globalization. Globalization occurs when countries open up cross border trading which allows the free flow of capital. This definition also highlights one of the many controversial issues many may have with globalization: the reallocation of human capital to emerging economies. This negative connotation of the definition perpetuates the fear anti-globalizers associate with the progression of globalization. Though the progression of globalization does not come without objectors and protestors, it is hard to refute that since countries have progressed towards a more globalized society the overall quality of life for a country’s inhabitants has improved. Mandelbaum states, “More countries joined the global economy, and the volume of cross-border capital flows expanded rapidly, increasing by an average of 11 percent per year between the beginning of the 1990s and the......

Globalization

...DEFINITION;- Globalization is defined as increasing process of interdependence and interconnected between different political, social and economic components of the World. It is the way in which World is seen as global village. HISTORY OF GLOBALIZATION;- During the 19th century, globalization approached its modern form as a direct result of the industrial revolution. Industrialization allowed standardized production of household items using economies of scale while rapid population growth created sustained demand for commodities. In the 19th century, steamships reduced the cost of international transport significantly and railroads made inland transport cheaper. The transport revolution occurred sometime between 1820 and 1850. More nations embraced international trade. TYPES & ASPECTS OG GLOBALIZATION;- These are some types and aspects of globalization. ECONOMIC GLOBALIZATION;- Economic globalization is the increasing economic interdependence of national economies across the world through a rapid increase in cross-border movement of goods, service, technology and capital. Whereas the globalization of business is centered round the diminution of international trade regulations as well as tariffs, taxes, and other impediments that suppresses global trade, economic globalization is the process of increasing economic integration between countries, leading to the emergence of a global marketplace or a single world market. Depending on the paradigm, economic......

They can be loaded and unloaded, stacked, transported over long distances and transferred from one mode of transport to another. All containers are numbered and tracked using computerized systems. A. Effects i. System developed after World War II, dramatically reduced transport costs. ii. Supported post-war boom in International Trade and was a major element in Globalization. iii. Displaced thousands of workers who used to help break cargo. iv. Reduced congestion in ports, losses from damage and theft and shortened shipping time. v. Containers that were once sent as small consignments began to be grouped into containers. vi. Manufacturing, Trucking and Rail transport evolved to take advantage of containers. vii. Helped in the advent of Just-in-time manufacturing – a method of reducing flow times within production and response time from suppliers and customers. B. Issues i. Hazards – Smuggling of contraband (anything that is deemed as illegal). ii. Empty Containers – After unloading, the containers may have to travel empty to another location to refill. iii.

Denmark Case

...System in Denmark The Economic System in Denmark The current controversies that have developed in the welfare state of Denmark have been a concern throughout the world. As political systems shift, there have been questions as to the rise of unemployment, the sustainability of the country due to strict immigration laws, and the increase of discrimination cases. Having the responsibility to sustain the cost of its growing population through high taxes, while entering into a recession, the country had to “enhance adaptability” (Daemmrich & Kramarz 2010) and change the traditional method of assistances. Through the demographic shift of immigrants and refugees the political issue remained prominent, while this climate was based on immigrants not adopting the Danish value system and identity while integrating into Denmark. The economic changes across the globe have had an effect on the control of industrialization and the workforce in the country, as the business world becomes smarter by reducing costs through crossing borders. It has a negative impact on the policies for the welfare state and has raised the unemployment rates. “With the decrease of regulatory barriers in foreign nations, the economies have transformed increasing competition and welcoming foreign investment” (Hill 2005). Due to the current structure and lack of political momentum for reform, the spending on social protection grew exponentially. Recognizing the increased competition due to......
