Fiscal Balance in Denmark

Denmark Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Denmark - Fiscal Balance

The economy appeared to ease in Q1 following a strong Q4 last year. In the first quarter, business confidence remained in the doldrums, which, coupled with softer credit growth in January and February, could have kept fixed investment depressed. Moreover, in January and February retail sales were muted, amid higher inflationary pressures and lower consumer confidence, which suggests modest private consumption despite a tight labor market. The manufacturing PMI also ebbed in Q1. In politics, the latest polls suggest the Social Democrats—headed by Mette Frederiksen—hold a commanding lead ahead of general elections which must be held by 17 June, and the center-left bloc is on course for a parliamentary majority. A center-left victory is unlikely to significantly change the current prudent fiscal stance and will likely have a minimal impact on growth prospects this year.
