Living standards and the wealth of nations successes and failures in real convergence ( )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After general discussions of the theoretical requirements for "rapid catch up" and the possible link between democracy and growth, the book presents global case studies of both non-EU and EU countries, including a provocative comparison of growth in the transition economies of the CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) nations and the 12 non-Baltic states of the former Soviet Union. It then considers nominal as opposed to real convergence in the European Monetary Union. Taken together, the chapters present a consistent argument that reliance on market forces within an open economy in a stable macroeconomic environment, with assured property rights, is the key to rapid economic growth.Offers detailed theoretical and empirical examinations of what makes for successful convergence. This book presents global case studies of both non-EU and EU countries, including a provocative comparison of growth in the transition economies of the CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) nations and the 12 non-Baltic states of the former Soviet Union.A group of prominent international economists consider what makes for successful convergence - what policies and economic conditions help poor countries catch up to the living standards of rich countries. The question of convergence, or under what conditions the per capita income levels of developing countries can catch up to those found in advanced economies, is critical for understanding economic growth and development. Convergence has happened in many countries and appears to be taking place now in China and India - yet in general per capita income levels in the poorer countries do not converge towards those of richer countries as uniformly as the analytical models predict. "Living Standards and the Wealth of Nations", which grew out of a 2003 conference on convergence hosted by the National Bank of Poland, offers detailed theoretical and empirical examinations of what makes for successful convergence

Barriers to entry and growth of new firms in early transition : a comparative study of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Albania, and Lithuania by Iraj Hoshi( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is about barriers to entry in early transition. It analyses the barriers faced by new private firms in five countries at different stages of transition: the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland as the front-runners of the process, and Albania and Lithuania which followed them later. It is now well established that the new private firm sector is the engine of growth in transition economies. But the entry of new firms is closely related to the nature of the existing regulatory and fiscal framework, specifically the registration and licensing requirements, rules on sale or lease of real estate, export and import regulations, and taxes and contributions. These barriers invariably lead entrepreneurs to conduct some or all of their business outside the official economy or, in some cases, discourage them from entry altogether
