We as the Julius Raab Foundation are pursuing a clear goal. We want to bring Austria forward by utilising new ideas, honest and courageous politics, with timeless values serving as foundation. The need for action is urgent. Today, Austria is facing huge challenges. But we are still increasingly dependent on successes of the past. This is happening at the expense of our future. When comparing to other countries worldwide, Austria keeps falling behind and lacks sustainable development.
The facts are clear: Government spending already exceeds 50% of our country’s economic output. The government interferes in peoples’ affairs in a patronising manner. The massive and still-growing national debt is destroying any hopes for the future for our children and grandchildren.
Political standstill and disputes are inappropriate answers. It is irresponsible to stand aside and to postpone the finding for solutions. Austria’s competitiveness is crucial for the quality of life of her inhabitants.
We are convinced: In order to ensure and to appropriately develop Austrian prosperity and quality of life, we need convincing visions and we need to regain the ability to collectively take action. We need political ideas that allow Austria to develop in new ways. We need a new collective way, which stems from citizens’ and the economy’s sense of responsibility and commitment for our future, to take action.
This is the path that we as Julius Raab Stiftung are taking. We are inviting you to join us.
