the Danes ' debt to the public is stuck so much that it is no longer possible to reverse the trend, unless the politicians come to the rescue.
It assesses the Gældsstyrelsens director, Lars Nordahl Lemvigh, and general, rasmussen, Morten Bødskov (S) agree. It writes the Jyllands-Posten Wednesday.
- There is a big task to get it to work, says Morten Bødskov.
Gældsstyrelsen have otherwise developed a new it system, which should speed the recovery of, for example, guilty politibøder, alimony and tax debts.
the Agency takes over the debt, when the police, the municipalities and the tax authorities itself can get the money in the box.
Since the old it system, EFI, was scrapped in 2015, the debt has risen to record 122,6 billion, and each year attributable to the debt principal amount interest at the rate of 8,05 percent. Last year alone, the races that interest on for the the 6.2 billion dollars.
in Addition, many debtors have so little money, that they are not able to pay, and under the current framework can than not the new it system will prevent the debt from continuing to rise, says Lars Nordahl Lemvigh.
- The automatic recovery has been shut down since 2015. In the period, there are still created new debt, and there's still been attributed to interest rates. When it is so big numbers, it goes relatively fast.
general, rasmussen, Morten Bødskov, has already initiated discussions with the political parties at Christiansborg on what to put up.
In 2018, politicians sought to reverse the trend. Among other things, by the quite extraordinary to beat a line over 485,000 japanese residents ' debts for 5.3 billion dollars.
A repetition is not "on board", says Morten Bødskov, who would prefer to find inspiration abroad as well as increase preventive efforts, so as to avoid that people without ability to pay gældsætter further.
On the question of whether he will lower the rate of interest at 8,05 percent, equivalent Bødskov, that "it is too early to say anything more detailed about the discussions, as we should have."
