Policy Responses

OECD Development Centre

Economic policy making in the BSEC-CA transition economies during the 1990s was dominated by the fundamentals of creating a market-based economy.

The variations were, in practice, however, more complex. The crucial importance of institutions was not well recognised and everywhere institutional reform was slow.
