Das TC Gebäude bei Nacht.


The research institute “Economics of Inequality” characterizes itself as the central platform in order to research inequality related questions at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Simultaneously, it enables communication between students, researchers, the media and policymakers.


We sum up contemporary issues with ease, no matter if print, TV or radio. Set up a meeting with our experts on income and wealth inequality; social, regional and ecological inequality and tax related questions.

Scientific editing

We think that appropriate data are the foundation of objective discussions. Our scientific editing service checks numbers, facts and estimations based on data sets like tax-related data, NAS, EU-SILC and HFCS.
