Abstract: This study attempts to investigate the impact of institutions on the effectiveness of transition results achieved by emerging economies from Central and Eastern Europe. After more than two decades significant economic and social disparities have arisen between these nations. Consequently, the relationship between institutional efficiency and progress is investigated using a multiple linear regression model. Given the Romanian poor transition performances, the purpose of this paper is to highlight that even if Romania had followed a shock therapy, the resultant of institutional interaction at formal-informal level would have been the same. As results emphasize, the inertial character of informal values inherited from the past faded the echo of good formal initiatives. In the light of such circumstances, performances of countries such as Poland or the Czech Republic become not only understandable, but far from being reached in Romania.
