About this book

Examines the institutional developments in 28 transition economies over the past two decades and concludes that, contrary to popular belief, institutions were not neglected; while personalities mattered as much as policies for outcomes, getting the basic institutions right was the most important aspect of a successful transition.

About the authors

Christopher A. Hartwell has advised governments on economic issues throughout transition economies for 17 years, living and working in the CIS and throughout Central and Eastern Europe. He holds a PhD from the Warsaw School of Economics and an MPP from Harvard, as well as an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Reviews

"This is an outstanding and path-breaking piece of work on the role of institutions and transition as a whole. It reads very much like Douglass North, but unlike North Hartwell provides empirical proofs through regression analysis."

Anders Åslund, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics, Washington DC
