Economics of Transition
Structural Adjustments and Growth Prospects in Eastern Europe. Vienna Institute for Comparative Economic Studies Series
Bringing together different perspectives on structural adjustment and the prospect for sustainable economic growth in Eastern Europe, Economics of Transition represents a shift in scholarly emphasis away from issues of stabilization and liberalization in favour of longer-term considerations.
This major volume features a distinguished collection of papers focusing on the theoretical and policy implications of transition and change in Eastern Europe. Drawing on work from a wide range of traditions, it explores how effective demand induces growth, how diffusion takes place, how economic policy influences incentives, motivations and behaviours, how institutions influence organization and technological capability building, and how institutions both constrain and guide economic policy.
Economics of Transition is the first of a major new series published by Edward Elgar for The Vienna Institute for Comparative Economic Studies. The intention of this new series is to encourage discussion on the economic theory and policy of transition and European economic integration.
