Abstract

Austrian institutions and enterprises offer a broad range of economic and financial literacy products and services, including online products, brochures, folders, economic simulation games, TV and radio programs, presentations, seminars, company visits and guided tours. On closer inspection, however, it turns out that some areas and target groups remain largely neglected: Education products and services for students attending primary and compulsory school are still scarce, while comprehensive material is available for students and teachers of secondary academic or vocational schools. Moreover, the level of knowledge about certain basic economic and financial concepts was generally found to be low. The deficiencies might be addressed by making the existing products and services more easily accessible in a structured fashion and by broadening the range of products and services to cater to the needs of all target groups.
