Economics at your fingertips

A chapter in Inequalities During and After Transition in Central and Eastern Europe, 2015, pp 1-11 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The aim of this book is to investigate, theoretically and empirically, the key aspects of social and economic inequality that have developed during the transition of the Formerly Planned European Economies. Although the focus is mainly on the countries of Central-Eastern Europe and of the Baltic region that joined the EU between 2004 and 2007, the coverage of the analysis is wherever possible extended to the countries of the former Soviet Union and former Yugoslavia. The empirical analyses broadly focus on the two decades after the start of transition; however, particular emphasis is given to the most recent years for which data are available in order to consider the effects of the global crisis that began in 2008–2009. All analyses have been carried out by adopting a comparative perspective, and Western EU Member States are used whenever possible as benchmarks.
