People In Transition: Assessing the Economies of Central and Eastern Europe and the CIS

After 17 years of transition to market economies in central and eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), are people better off now than they were in 1989? Brookings Global recently hosted a presentation by Senior Fellow and European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) Chief Economist, Erik Berglöf, on the 2007 Transition Report. The report offers unique insight into how transition has affected people’s lives and attitudes and the progress to date on governance and financial reforms.
