About this book


Transition economies offer a test case for concepts and theories, for broader ideas and for the methods of scientific enquiry, but also for the multiplicity of ideological interpretations. This volume addresses the major issues of transformation, institutional design, the redistribution paradigm and the macroeconomic decisions to be made.
