Anders Fogh Rasmussen is a Danish politician who was the 12th Secretary General of NATO from 2009 to 2014. Rasmussen served as Prime Minister of Denmark from 27 November 2001 to 5 April 2009. Rasmussen was the leader of the Liberal Party, and headed a center right-wing coalition with the Conservative People's Party which took office in November 2001 and won its second and third terms in February 2005 and in November 2007. Rasmussen's government relied on the Danish People's Party for support, keeping with the Danish tradition of minority government. In his early career, Rasmussen was a strident critic of the welfare state, writing the classical liberal book From Social State to Minimal State in 1993. However, through the 1990s, his views moved towards the political centre. His government introduced tougher limits on non-EEA immigration and a freeze on tax rates. Certain taxes were lowered, but the Conservative coalition partners repeatedly argued for more tax cuts and a flat tax rate at no higher than 50%.
