Анотація до книги:

The shift from a centrally planned to a market-based economy involves, amongst other elements, the restructuring of state-owned or privatized enterprises. Realigning product lines, adopting new technology and imposing sound finances are all important stages in the integration of enterprises into world markets.

This book analyses the efficiency and equity of the economic restructuring in the two largest successor statesofthe Soviet Union, Russia and Ukraine. It raises important questions such as why these countrieshave been relatively slow to pursue restructuring policies, how the transition has affected labour markets and institutions, and how it impacted on poverty and social safety. The analysis is based on a careful examination of micro-level data, documenting the experiences of and interactions between individuals and institutions.
