“As the main architect of Poland's post-communist economic transition, Leszek Balcerowicz is uniquely qualified to write on the transition from socialism to capitalism. . .The papers provide valuable insight into the progress, not only of the political economy of the reforms, but into the debate on alternative economic systems which preceded them. This debate is still ongoing in some countries, so that Central and Eastern Europe's experience, as analysed here, is of great practical, as well as historical and analytical, interest.”
