Economics at your fingertips

Chapter Part I in Privatization and its Limits in Central and Eastern Europe, 2001, pp 1-7 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract At first, this project was intended to be a study on transition and privatization in Romania, a country viewed with suspicion even today, due to its past, and considered a “taboo-zone”, that seems to forbid even the slightest interest. In the Western press today, Romanian current events make the news only with negative headlines, if at all. It all began with asking detailed questions and looking more closely at events on the spot. While staying in Bucharest in autumn 1992, I saw the people, experienced their candor, the difficulties of their everyday lives and the creativity they used to overcome them. At that time I had the opportunity to discuss the concept of privatization with local economists and to witness the infancy of privatization itself.
