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.
