Overview

The still chaotic states of the former Soviet Union, a growing China, and the divergent nations of Eastern Europe are striving to radically transform their economies. In their quest to become more integrated with the global economy, they are making historic changes to move toward market-based, private-enterprise systems.

The authors outline the key issues that any successful reform program must address and the sequence in which these reforms should take place.
