Something rotten in Denmark

In business culture on May 12, 2018 at 07:46

The Atea bribe case is about to be settled in court.

The background is that Region Sealand made an agreement where they created an account where they could stack money into at Atea so they could buy things without being dependent of the strict budget rules. At public offices they can risk cuts if they do not use all the money they set aside during a fiscal year. Because then the politician would say “They did not use all their money. They need less next year.” So if they had nothing to use the money for, they asked for a fake invoice so they could get important stuff next year.

A lot of money piled up at that account which everyone knew about. Some of the money were used for study trips abroad so the public servicemen could learn about new technology. Then some of the people who used to work for Atea moved to a new firm and the trouble began. Because the new management at Atea believed that the old employers had agreed to party the account away in exchange of getting orders to the new firm. The new management did not like this special account but they decided to close it down secretly because a lot of hands had gotten their hands dirty. That was until the new firm got a large order.

Suddenly almost every firm in the IT-business in Denmark involved in the tender did sent the same complaint with the same wording. It was revealed that not only Atea but also the rest of the firms shared a people among the shareholders. So while it looks like that the Danish IT-business have free competition but in reality a small group of people control everything.

So regardless if the trial shows that someone was bribed, the question remains. Do we taxpayers pay too much for public IT-projects when a small group of people control the entire business?

The king is dead

In culture on February 14, 2018 at 06:26

Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark has died at the age of 83.

He did a lot for both our country and France, which in the minds of ordinary Danes was elevated from just a province in Europe to a country with a special culture and fine cuisine thanks to his effort in teaching us the mindset from down there.

But his life also was a showcase in how difficult it is to be accepted in the minds of ordinary Danes. This should be a warning to all immigrants. If he with all the resources the royal house has and the intelligent mind with knowledge of literature, music and art, speaking at least 5 languages not can be integrated and accepted as just another Dane, who can?

He was able to speak to all Danes. Yes. His Danish was not as good as native citizens near Copenhagen speak but then a lot of Danes do not understand each other due to differences in the language (dialects) across the country. In some places “I” in danish is just a one-letter word where it consist of 3 letters near Copenhagen.

People laughed behind his back at many occasions which is kind of sad. The fact is that art, music and languages are for the elite in Denmark. Denmark is a country where the population walks in two paces. 60 percent of the people only read the Jante-law. That is their knowledge of literature. If people do not understand this, they will get in trouble and trouble he got when he aimed for a finer title. There is not fully equality in the Danish royal house. We did not have that many ruling Queens in our history, would critics state. And we are slow to make changes.

This has a reason. You do not find any people on the earth who struggle during daily life. Cuts in early retirement, loss of jobs due to the global economy, loss of policing due to the need of border control, cuts in the education sector so next generation of Danes will see fewer graduate high school means no surplus for changes.

He did his utmost. I do not think no person could have done a better job. He was an extraordinary person. He will missed so much.

Norwegian attack on industries in Denmark

In business culture on February 13, 2018 at 13:46

A huge company from Norway seems to target all Pizza owners in Denmark called Peppe as they got smart lawyers who took out name protection of this common name among Danish pizzashop owners. That is a major blow against the Danish government who have tried to put immigrants into work. Doctors, medical staff and other academically trained professionals find it difficult to work within their line of business because we in Denmark has a higher level in the education area.

Even medical staff from Norway and Sweden are often trained in Denmark attending Danish schools because we have real schools and real universities in a very high standard.

So people who have graduated universities abroad often find themselves driving cabs or working in the fast food industry – sometime starting their own business which we as Danish citizens find good.

There have been Pepe Pizzas and Peppe Pizzas in Denmark since the 1970’s but the Norwegian firm is trying to prevent pizzashops being associated with the name Pepe and Peppe so it is not a vacuum cleaner many calls Hoover.

This move will put a lot of immigrants out of work. It is not acceptable that we should see an increase in employment just because this Norwegian firm protect local interests. We have to ask ourselves how we can hurt Norway as nation most in a peaceful way. Should we target the large number of Norwegian students? Why are they not attending school at home? Why should we pay for their schooling?

I will mail and try if we cannot put something together raising a defense against the aggression from Norway.

Peace in our time

After the high commands of the major youth gangs Brothas and Loyal to the Familia announced the ceasefire in Copenhagen life is a slowly returning to the streets of Copenhagen.

Also the politicians are working on more long term solutions. A removal of part of the Danish rent protect laws has allowed owners of building built after 1994 to set the level of rents to what the market allows instead of the rent being based on costs. This change in legislation will push the massive exodus of poor people and just people working ordinary job out of the cities into a higher gear.

As the youth gangs mostly get their recruits from the part of the citizens in the cities who have the lowest income, this would reduce the size of the youth gangs over time and once they are exiled to the parts of Denmark called The Rotten Banana they will not be part of gangs as the public transport is almost not existing outside the cities and ownership of cars in Denmark are among the most expensive in the entire world due to the strict audit system of cars in private ownership. Every second year the car has to be brought back to working legal condition which is very pricy and makes it impossible for many citizens to own a car.

Right now citizens among the big schools like Copenhagen Business School, Niels Brock and Copenhagen University has seen a rising number of tags – graffiti showing ownership of a territory of a youth gang. That is the most visible sign that the ceasefire in the gang wars are working. The very public case of Jakob Engel-Schmidt shows that not only do the students need performance drugs to do their jobs and studies. Also the employees need help dealing with a stressful daily life. That is the reason that the areas around the schools have been the battle ground of the gang war.

The exodus of the poor people from cities like Copenhagen will take care of this. Young people from the ghettos often have no choice in the line of work. They can work for the youth gangs which can lead them into conflict with the laws. It is so in the United States as shown in this video. It is so in Denmark too.

More suffering for the ordinary people outside the cities

In business culture on February 4, 2018 at 08:38

In Denmark people living in the areas called “The Rotten Banana” often work in jobs requiring little or only basic education. Now a catastrophe has hit one of those areas. Tvilum is a furniture manufacturer located in Jutland. 700 people were sent home yesterday. For many it is properly their last contact with the labor market in Denmark. Now a life on welfare and personal bankruptcy awaits them.

Of course they will try to look for new investors, but furniture today are built by child labor in third world countries. That trend pushed Tvilum over the edge. You cannot blame the ordinary consumers for that. In a world where membership of the European Union has resulted on loss of early retirement, increased crime rate due to open borders and massive cuts in the education sector for both schools and students, the ordinary customer cannot be expected to summon any sympathy or interest into how furniture is made.

That is the fact. Global free trade equals suffering in both Denmark and in the third world countries. Here we lose our jobs, our pensions and our children chance for higher education. Down there they just have to start to work early.

The bankruptcy of Tvilum will kick the speed of Denmark as a country traveling in two phases into gear. The price for renting a place in the Danish cities has been increased by 42 percent over the last couple of years forcing people who are unemployed to stay out of the cities. A worker who loses his or her job at Tvilum will never have the chance travel into Copenhagen and get a job unless the worker will sleep on the streets as a higher percentage of people end up being forced to every year.

There have never been so many Danes sleeping in the street as homeless people as now. All that thanks to a global economy without the protection of localized taxes and costs for shipping goods over the border.

The shops are closing all over Denmark. You see half-empty shopping malls everywhere and small supermarkets where they do not just hire people under 18 and one single manager are also closing.

The economy in Denmark is crashing down. Please look elsewhere if you want to invest or are looking for a career.
