This chapter turns to Denmark in order to understand the circumstances under which countries might successfully implement sweeping creative corporatist reforms in the labor market. Like Finland, Denmark also relied on creative corporatism to facilitate movement into new high-tech industries. In converting a very different tradition of coordination, based on industry-labor and local interfirm collaboration, however, Denmark targeted different inputs, investing less in research but dramatically expanding continuing education and early stage risk capital. These different investments led Denmark to assume a very different position in the high-tech market. Denmark struggled to compete in capital-intensive industries such as mobile handsets and in fact lost ground to Finland in this area. The country, however, simultaneously cultivated a much broader and more diversified array of activities in telecommunication equipment and beyond.

Keywords:   Denmark, corporatism, labor market, high-tech industry, telecommunications industry, economic policy, continuing education, risk capital
