However, there is no reason to idealize conditions in Denmark. There are a couple of flies in the ointment. One reason why the numerus clausus prevents otherwise qualified students from studying medicine is that it is much cheaper for countries to import medical doctors from neighboring countries: De udenlandske læger i Danmark bliver flere og flere. På kortet kan du se, hvor de kommer fra. (Avisen, Nov. 20, 2017)
There are more and more foreign doctors in Denmark. On this map, you can see where they come from.

Are there any signs yet that the USA is turning into Venezuela? (Apart from the claims about the Dominion voting machines?)
Well, raising the minimum wage to $15 will at least get conditions for workers in the USA closer to conditions in Denmark.

The US Failed This Test, Denmark Didn’t

(The video is old. It predicts that the U.S. may have more than 100,000 Covid-19 deaths!)
