Regular reader Flatus Vocis recommends an article on German emigration at Czech news site Česká Pozice.
The number of Germans in Austria has doubled in 10 years to almost 230 000. They are attracted by high living standards, jobs and a more relaxed attitude to life. After the EU expansion a decade ago many global companies established their Eastern Europe HQs in Vienna. This wave of immigration has had helped reduce cronyism and corruption in Austria, but there has been some antipathy to German students, numbering 30 000. The Austrian government's attempts to limit their admissions conflicted with EU directives, and so it is now considering increasing tuition fees while excluding citizens of Austria.
