Description

Drawing on data from the World Bank’s “World Development Report 1996,” this guide focuses on the transition from central planning to market orientation in the economic systems of Central and Eastern Europe, the independent states of the former Soviet Union, and China.

10 lessons explore such issues as:

  • What is the legacy of planned economies?
  • What forms of privatization are being tried?
  • What is the social cost of the transition?
