    Despite Austria had a compromised economy due to the interwar and postwar´s effects on the World War I and World War II. The Federal Republic of Austria had to pay to the former owners of stock petroleum in cash and bonds more than $ 545 billion of dollars. In order to keep a stable economy, they created the Economy Institute and Analyst with the end to keep the monetary fluctuation as low as possible. Thus, they have sought to have the shilling tied to The Bundesbank with the end to keep a steady currency. Also, through out of The Treaties with the Eu. They have openness and flexibility to establish new trends in commerce and markets. I think that due to the historical settings in their economy, Austria can enhance its still more its economy.
    Best Regard,
