Abstract

Österreichs Standortqualität wird vor dem Hintergrund nachhaltigen Wirtschaftens und der "Beyond-GDP"-Ziele der Europäischen Kommission nicht nur von ökonomischen, sondern verstärkt auch von sozialen und ökologischen Indikatoren bestimmt. Gemessen an sozialen und ökologischen Faktoren liegt Österreich im europäischen Spitzenfeld. Determinanten dafür sind hohe Sozialstandards mit effizienter Mittelverwendung, kaufkraftstärkende Umverteilungsmaßnahmen der öffentlichen Hand und Investitionen in den Sozialstaat. Eine Verstärkung der Investitionen kann die Standortqualität von Österreich verbessern.
