About the Course:
The course analyzes challenges faced by transition and emerging-market economies. And by the end of the course you will be able to analyse emerging-market economies and economies in transition, taking into account their crucial characteristics and historical experience.
It starts from a brief history of communist economic system based on central planning in the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe, its evolution and collapse at the end of 1980s/ early 1990s and subsequent transition to a market system in 1990s and 2000s. Then it analyzes experience of market reforms in foreign countries at the same period. Finally, it discusses the problems of contemporary global economy and global and regional economic governance with the special focus given to emerging-market economies and their role.
