The postcommunist economic transformation : essays in honor of Gregory Grossman ( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ongoing effort to transform the centrally planned economies of the postcommunist east into market economies has dashed early hopes that it would be possible to formulate a design and an agenda for marketization and privatization, to manage the process rationally, and to emerge from the turmoil of structural change fairly quickly. This volume takes a sober second look at approaches to and prospects for making the transition to new economic systems. The contributing authors, distinguished specialists on the formerly planned economies with decades of experience in the field, offer cogent analyses of the economic, political, social, and geographic dimensions of current reforms. They also review salient features of the old command economic systems, the effects of which even today have not been eradicated. The authors' intimate knowledge of how the old systems functioned gives them a special appreciation both of the need for reform and of the cultural and political legacies that are shaping and distorting the reform process. They are acutely aware of the difficulty of imposing Western policies in the absence of Western institutions, and their essays sound a note of skepticism about the feasibility of rebuilding these economies with a simple reliance on the market plus macro-economic guidance
The Soviet Union's hard-currency balance of payments and creditworthiness in 1985 by Gregory Grossman ( Book )
6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study of Soviet hard-currency balance-of-payments structure and creditworthiness in 1985 is intended to be not a prediction but rather a set of projections of the Soviet Union's financial position in 1985, based on several scenarios resting upon an array of stylized but plausible assumptions. The model highlights the vulnerability of the Soviet hard-currency balance-of-payments to a liquidity squeeze by examining its near-term financial policy variables. The authors first estimate an "initial scenario" for the 1985 hard-currency balance-of-payments, which comes in two variants according to the assumed rate of Soviet GNP growth during the current Five-Year Plan, 1981 through 1985. Next, a list of adverse events of internal and external origin and the effects of each individually on net compressible-import capacity is examined. Finally, the authors examine a series of "worst cases," which combine several of the more serious adverse events at once
Trends in wage and income distribution under Gorbachev : analysis of new Soviet data by Michael V Alexeev ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deputies to the USSR Congress of People's Deputies in Moscow in 1989- the first real Soviet parliament since 1918- expressed strong interest in issues of welfare and poverty. As a result, the country's national statistics agency released unprecedented new series on the size distribution of wages and income in the country, including the distributions by republics. This paper applies a simple nonparametric statistical estimation technique based on the Kolmogorov- Smirnov test to fit the new Soviet data to a lognormal distribution, thus making it possible to estimate Gini coefficients for wages and incomes nationally and by republics. Analysis of the estimates shows that wage inequality in the Soviet Union has increased during the Gorbachev era, and that both wage and income inequality are higher in the poorer, Southern republics of the USSR than in the North. The paper also concludes that illegal (unreported) private income exacerbates these same trends

Strategies of adaptation : a Soviet enterprise under perestroika and privatization by Michael Burawoy ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the classic studies of the Soviet enterprise, the failures of central planning are attributed, not to some traditional or non-economic logic, but to the enterprise's rational pursuit of its own interests. Berliner and Granick have shown that rational strategies lead to irrational outcomes. Thus, enterprises bargain for loose plan targets by hiding resources, by not overfulfilling plans and by exaggerated underfulfillment of difficult targets. Enterprise performance is evaluated according to plan indicators which, if followed, lead to wasteful use of resources and the production of goods no one wants -- heavy machinery, thin glass or large nails. So, they conclude, it is impossible to create an incentive system that stimulates the production of what is needed. The more recent literature on enterprises in the reformed economies of Eastern Europe, particularly the Hungarian economy, argues that the same pathologies persist when physical planning gives way to fiscal planning. Kornai (1980, 1986) argues that soft budget constraints inevitably follow from state ownership of the means of production, and therefore enterprises seek to increase their bargaining power with the state by expanding as rapidly as possible. This results in a distribution of investment resources which is unrelated to enterprise efficiency or profitability. In a more elaborate bargaining model, Bauer (1978) shows how enterprises entice government sponsorship of new investment schemes by underestimating the costs of new projects. Once hooked, the government can be subjected to considerable pressure to continue financing the new project even as costs escalate. The government over extends its resources and is forced to abandon half-finished projects
