The Post-Soviet Economy: Soviet and Western Perspectives

by Anders Aslund
     
 
In the context of the Soviet economic crisis of 1991, this work offers the views of 12 economists - half from the USSR, half from the West. While all agree on the need for a market economy, the Soviet writers here argue for a markedly more gradual change than do their Western counterparts.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Scholars from the West and the former Soviet Union survey the current state of the economy in the region, the potential for stabilization and foreign trade, possible new federal structures, and issues that will have to be dealt with in the future, such as the role of the state, and private property rights. The 12 papers are from a June 1991 conference in Stockholm, and might interest policy makers dealing with post-Soviet governments and potential investors. Annotation c.
