â€œEverything you need requires production. In Denmark in 2000 we thought that we could make a living out of knowledge, but now we can see that exporting knowledge is very difficult. Exports are not coming from big cities in Denmark, but from the smaller areas where the factories are. We cannot make a living working only in offices.â€? Carsten Kissmeyer Mayor, Ikast-Brande, Denmark
