New study: Potential house prices in ghetto areas

As a part of the plan “One Denmark without parallel societies – No ghettos in 2030” a broad majority in the Danish parliament have decided that the share of social housing in 15 ghetto areas must be reduced to a maximum of 40 pct. of the initial housing stock by 2030 to achieve a more mixed housing and resident composition.

The expected revenue from selling social housing in ghetto areas is inherently uncertain because social housing has never been strategically sold off before. In this study, we estimate potential revenue per unit in each of the 15 ghetto areas in four sale scenarios.

Kommentar angående Beowulf Minings debattartikel i SvD 5 januari 2019

Copenhagen Economics vill klargöra att vi inte gjort någon utredning eller uttalat oss kring huruvida en gruva i Kallak kan komma att påverka samisk kultur eller rennäring, vilket man kan få intryck är fallet i debattartikeln ”Osäkra spelregler hot mot gruvindustrin” av Kurt Budge och Göran Färm, Beowulf Mining, som publicerades i Svenska Dagbladet den 5 januari 2019.

Under 2017 utredde Copenhagen Economics ett par samhällsekonomiska frågeställningar på uppdrag av Beowulf Mining, den rapporten finns att läsa på vår hemsida. Rapporten svarar inte, och var aldrig menad att svara på, huruvida en gruva i Kallak kan komma att påverka samisk kultur eller rennäring då en sådan frågeställning inte ingick i vårt uppdrag från Beowulf Mining.

Commentatry in English

Copenhagen Economics wants to clarify that we have not investigated or commented on whether a mine in Kallak may affect Sami culture or reindeer herding, which one can get the impression is the case in the Swedish debate article "Osäkra spelregler hot mot gruvindustrin" written by Kurt Budge and Göran Färm, Beowulf Mining, and published in Svenska Dagbladet on January 5, 2019.

In 2017, Copenhagen Economics investigated a selected few socio-economic topics on behalf of Beowulf Mining, the report is available on our website. The report does not include an analysis of whether a mine in Kallak may affect Sami culture or reindeer herding since that was not part of our assignment from Beowulf Mining.

New Study: Alternative markets for Danish agri-food products in a No-Deal Brexit scenario

A No-Deal scenario where the UK leaves the EU without a trade agreement would result in high tariff, new customs procedures and other barriers to agri-food trade.

Higher trade costs will deter the competitiveness of Danish food exporters in the UK relative to third countries, and lower UK incomes in a No-Deal scenario will put a downward pressure on prices. In addition, agri-food products that can no longer be sold in the UK are likely to be redirected to alternative markets (including the EU) and put a downward pressure on prices.
