Problems of Economic Transition
Editor: Vladimir M. Belenky

Problems of Economic Transition enables English-language readers to follow the principal theoretical and policy issues that constitute the core of post-Soviet economic discourse in various regions of the former USSR. Coverage ranges from the most recent research papers, policy studies, and analytical reports to articles in leading professional journals. Topics covered on an ongoing basis include reform policy; natural resource economics; foreign economic relations and the impact of the global financial crisis on the transition economies; industrial reorganization; labor economics and social policy; and regional economic development.
