The Evolutionary Transition to Capitalism

Synopsis

"In this timely work, renowned scholars provide a provocative view of the transition to capitalism in formerly socialist economies. The contributors consider the experiences of Eastern Europe, Russia, and China, most arguing that an evolutionary approach to the transition has a greater chance of succeeding than does "shock therapy." Their evolutionary theoretical paradigm provides constructive alternatives to the conventional thinking on transition and on institutional change in general."
