Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The great transformation undertaken by the countries of the former communist bloc exhibits immense diversityDSin terms of initial conditions, shifting target models, consistency, paths, speed, progress to date, and economic performance. This is the first comprehensive study of the economics and politics of postsocialism to be written by an author so deeplyDSand so successfullyDSinvolved in the reform process. Many people writing on the reform process offer advice that is not really credible; as a member of the Polish government, and architect of the successful Polish reform, Grzegorz Kolodko actually solved many of the difficulties of transition, which allows him to come forward here with policy proposals and long-term forecasts. The treatment of the transition from plan to market as a historical process is an important feature of the book. The author claims that there is no historical fatalityDSthat sound policies in the present are more determining than the favourable or unfavourable legacies of the past. The aim is to create and maintain the conditions for sustainable growth and durable development. Seller Inventory # APC9780198297437
