Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bulgarian and foreign contributors examine the country's economy from a range of perspectives. The 15 studies were completed in spring 1996, just before a financial crisis, changes in central banking, and a mass privatization program began, and so represent a view of the early stage of transition untainted by hindsight. Among the considerations are inflation, the price index gap, money and the capital market, international trade, privatization and the restructuring of state and small firms, agricultural reforms, and labor markets. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
