Shed light on the world of Austrian's super rich

Article in the blog Arbeit&Wirtschaft refers to research by Benjamin Ferschli, Jakob Kapeller, Schütz and Wildauer (2017).

"For decades there was a lack of science-based facts on the size and distribution of wealth in Austria, which changed with the OeNB's Household Finance and Consumption Survey. However facts about the top one percent of the 39,000 richest households - accounting for up to 41 percent of the total wealth - are missing." writes Markus Marterbauer in his blog article about super rich in Austria. He refers to the research of Benjamin Ferschli, Jakob Kapeller, Schürz and Wildauer (2017) on the accumulation of private wealth in Austria.
