Abstract

It is normal to depict the events of 1989–91 primarily in terms of political ideology. This is entirely legitimate yet these events came to constitute one of the most sensational episodes of economic dislocation in the modern world. Communist regimes fell, the Warsaw Pact was dissolved, Comecon (or the CMEA – The Council for Mutual Economic Assistance) was disbanded and Yugoslavia and the USSR broke up into separate states.
