Scandal

In August 2018, she made pejorative comments on Denmark’s economic model by saying it was infeasible and said that there was something rotten in Denmark. She had made several deceptive claims about Denmark. However, Denmark is ranked higher on indicators of economic freedom, ease-of-doing-business, happiness, and has higher employment figures. Then Regan’s figures about Danish unemployment were only correct if she included also unemployed babies, children, and retired people.

In fact, Denmark’s unemployment rate was lower than that of the US. Moreover, she also said that nobody graduates from school as the government pays students to go to school, according to The Washington Post. However, direct comparison is difficult. In fact, less than 60% of US college students finish in six years whereas in Denmark 79% of undergraduates finish their coursework. Then the paper noted that this encompasses students who can’t afford college in the United States.

After her comments were criticized in the US and Danish press, Regan tried to clarify her comments. by saying: “Just to be clear, I was never implying that conditions in Denmark were similar in any way to the current tragedy on the ground there in Venezuela”. She includes, “I was merely pointing out, using reports from The Atlantic, The Independent, and other publications, that socialism is not the way.” These sources have since disproved her claim, saying that “Our articles do not show that socialism does not definitively work”.
