Cities in transition
Oleksandr Shepotylo ()
EERC Working Paper Series from EERC Research Network, Russia and CIS
Cities in transition face a unique set of challenges that came forth due to interaction of the legacy of socialist urban policies and the transition to the market economy. Socialist urban policies restrained growth of the largest cities and led to distortions in the spatial equilibrium and to more uniform distribution of population within a country. The transition to the market economy tends to reduce distortions but the rate of convergence to the new spatial equilibrium is low. Market rigidities, inadequate urban infrastructure, and inconsistent government policies prevent people from moving to other locations.
