Overview

Transitions from socialism to capitalism are complex, both in theory and practice. Russian Economic Reform enables the reader to come to a much better understanding of these momentous changes, by providing a clear and accessible account of the major features of transition.

Many of the problems that are emerging now have their antecedents in the earlier economic system.
