    Thank you for that enjoyable speech and presentation.
    I am reading your book “Open World:/ The Truth about Globalisation” (which I picked up at a small little bookshop in a trendy district in Toronto, ON) and just finished the introduction when I decided to find out more about you.
    World economics, shifting socioeconomic patterns and international politics are just hobby interests of mine and I’m delighted to have discovered your perspectives on these issues.
    As my Australian friends would say, “I think you’re spot on!”

    Of course Denmark needs qualified immigrants badly – it’s totally unable to hang on to the ones it gets. Try actually living and working in Denmark for a few years, and having to wade through the cold and unfriendly people, impossible language and terrible xenophobia. Most educated immigrants last 3 – 4 years, then they decide they’ve had enough and leave. And I’m not talking about people from Asia, I mean Americans, Canadians and even other Europeans. Denmark is a big disappointment, and extremely overrated. Don’t just listen to the locals, try to find out what foreigners in the country think.
