Calling for Danish volunteers for another newspaper article

Postby jacob » Tue May 24, 2016 9:00 am

ERE is currently riding the media wave, so I was contacted by Jyllandsposten for another article on ERE.

Seeing how well it went the last time in terms of inspiring people or putting words on existing lifestyles---that article was the most read article on b.dk for the entire week and we got a bunch of new forum members + I received a couple of emails as well---I'm willing to go for another article, and the journalist thus needs some volunteers to interview.

This article will have more of a how-to focus (what it takes to FIRE and what to do), so the journalist is ideally looking to interview some people who has been doing this for a while and made some specific choices in that regard.

Reply here, PM me, or write me at jacob @ earlyre.... com if interested and I'll hook you up.

Why all the interest in Denmark recently? Has something happened there to make ERE suddenly more appealing?

I'm guessing it's the echo-chamber effect. BTW you're just seeing the top of the iceberg in terms of media interest.

I believe in some cases the interest is coming due to the "normal" retirement-age in dk are going up, up and up some more. This has happened, even though people pay a lot in taxes for a lot of years. I think the retirement age has reached such a high point where it is simply no longer acceptable for a lot of people here anymore.
Also the state has (misused) a lot of money on more occasions that should be allowed.
