    Abstract

    This article is a survey of economic literature about the public and financial institutions in countries with transition economies. It also presents some particularities within the countries from Central and Eastern Europe. We investigate the factors that influence a certain institutional architecture and the impact of those institutions on several economic aspects such as growth, trade, corruption, stock markets, inflation, unemployment, etc. For the financial sector we investigate some specific problems: stock markets, deposit insurance, central bank and credit market, consolidation, globalization and international investment in financial services.
