This book analyses the demanding future challenges that Austria is facing and deals with the various courses of action available within Austrian policy options. A vision for Austria in 2050 must provide an answer for how the country can best support the economic and social demands of its citizens and their life plans. The starting point for reflection is a positive vision as regards the position and performance of the Austrian national economy in the year 2050. The exogenous trends that can already be anticipated today are presented
in detail and the consequences that they will have on Austria are deduced. What is undisputed is that Austria’s future is defined by these exogenous trends, but that it is absolutely possible to self-define the future with forward-looking policies. To this end, essential prerequisites for Austria’s top position in the world of 2050 must be created – these prerequisites are education, innovation and structural change.
