Overview

This book is a collection of articles on the Russian economic transformation, written between 1991 and 1994. It offers a unique inside perspective of the reform process. The articles were written at the height of the reforms and they reflect the knowledge, thoughts and ideas retained by the leading reformers and their advisers whilst attempting a radical transformation of the Russian economy. The contributors, while unanimously advocating radical reform, also provide substantial empirical evidence of the pressing economic issues and concerns of the period. Although most of the contributors worked for the Russian government when they wrote their articles, they are still remarkably critical of the reform process, maintaining that the reforms were not radical enough either in content or in approach.
