What Does Transition Mean?: Post-socialist and Western European Countries Paralleled
AbstractThis paper suggests a broad concept of transition that is built upon the techno-economic paradigm framework, and defines transition as that institutional change process during which the 'match' between a new technology and institutions is attained. It is argued that the post-socialist transition itself should be seen as the first phase in this institutional change process brought about by the emerging new techno-economic paradigm (ICT revolution), which is a challenge also for Western European economies. This paper provides evidence for the claim that both the frontrunners and the continental Western European countries face the same problemâ€”namely, acquiring the kind of institutional structure that is appropriate for the ICT revolution, as shown in two fields, i.e., the labour market and firm organisation.
