Abstract

The changes that took place after 1989 in the countries of Central-Eastern Europe were political, social and economic. They were especially combined with the economic transformation. Due to the lack of comparable transformation experiences, the governments and societies of the countires that took up the “challenge” of transformation were left on their own to organise their own programmes and activities. The aim of this study is to analyse and evaluate the economic transformation, with particular focus on three areas: the initial conditions, the progress, the results. At the same time, the fundamental hypothesis of this study is that from the very beginning od the systemic changes in the transitional economies there was a strong correlation between the actual changes and the scale and intensity of changes in the economy.
