This project focuses on how the economic inequality in Denmark has developed during the last two administrations. The project according to a thesis: There has been a different view on equality, resulting in political will to prioritize economic growth at the expense of economic equality. The project will investigate how equality is defined, how equality in Denmark has developed since 2001, if the Danish government’s political plan “Vækstplan DK” can be seen as a continuation of the projects thesis and finally what the long term consequences of inequality in a society are? The project concludes that there are several widespread ways of defining equality. The inequality has risen in the period 2001-2010 and “Vækstplan DK” is continuing a new view on equality and prioritizing economic growth at the expense of equality. This new view on equality represents a neoliberalization of the Danish society. Finally the project reveals a number of negative consequences of high inequality in societies.
