📙 Industrial Policy in Eastern Europe: Governing the Transition by Josef M. van Brabant (auth.) — download pdf


This volume in essence continues my recent contributions towards building up a better understanding of the wide range of obstacles besetting the transitions away from administrative planning in the former communist regimes in the eastern part of Europe. It is self-contained, however. As such, it specifically addresses issues revolving around how best to govern economies, and indeed societies more generally, that are undergoing fundamental structural transfor­ mation, and whether industrial policy can facilitate progressing with the vexing transformations that will have to be enacted over a protracted period of time. Because of the bewildering variety of hindrances that the managers of the transition have been confronted with, many of which were not even contem­ plated when the programs were first designed, regaining a measure of good governance, including notably good economic governance, is critical in formu­ lating a positive pOlitical economy of transition. Arguably most critical is steering the processes of destruction and creation-not 'creative destruction' in the Schumpeterian sense. In some cases, this requires reallocating decom­ missioned resources, both capital and labor, to new activities. Changing rules on the utilization of existing assets is evidently at the core of what the transi­ tion towards market-based economic systems should be all about Very often, however, this requires establishing new economic activities from domestic and foreign savings.
