Theme 2 | Clemens Wallner

Prosperity, Poverty and Redistribution in Austria

The redistribution in Austria shows that a minority holds the mass of the wealth to be redistributed

Austria has a high per-capita income, a high rate of social spending, a uniform income distribution and consequently a low poverty rate. Nevertheless, some institutions and media also point to rampant poverty and shout shrilly for (still) more redistribution and social spending. In an investigation, the Federation of Industrialists has summarized facts on redistribution in Austria. It shows that a minority generates the mass of the wealth to be redistributed and thus essentially maintains the social system.

Since 2007 Dr. Clemens Wallner has been the Economic Policy Coordinator of the Industrial Association of Austria. Prior to that he was Chief Economist of the ÖVP Federal Party, and Economic Adviser of the Federal Party Chairman and Chancellor from 2002 to 2007. From 1999 2001 he was in the Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs. After studying the French baccalauréat at Lycée Français de Vienne, he studied economics at Harvard University, and graduated in 1998 in political science from the University of Vienna.
