Financial Reform in Central and Eastern Europe
This book examines the reforms of banking in Eastern Europe, which are a key element of the transition to the market in those economies. Particular emphasis is placed on the "bad domestic bank debt" problem. The book also analyzes the development of capital markets in Eastern Europe, and their role in attracting foreign flows, with case-studies on the former Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland. Contributions are from senior policy-makers and academics from Central and Eastern Europe who are involved in the reforms.
