DescriptionContentsAuthors

This volume explores what happened in the Asian transition economies of China, Vietnam and Myanmar from both macro and micro perspectives. These economies opted for the gradual transition approach rather than the big bang approach that Russia and some CIS economies took. This ensured that institutional change was possible, unlike with the big bang approach. However the processes organized are done so by the governments, the same entities responsible for the planning during the planned economic eras, and whose incentive to reform may be debatable. This book questions whether these governments are capable of implementing effective reform and transformation.
