About this book


Recent cataclysmic changes in the international economic order are shaping the global policy choices of the 1990s. In his final collection of essays, the late Bela Balasa, a foremost international economist, examines the implications of these recent changes for developed, developing and reforming socialist economies. Essays include development strategies, adjustment policies, the public sector, and financial liberalization, economic integration in Eastern Europe, and trade policy negotiations.
