Institutions Matter in Transition, But So Do Policies
AbstractThis paper analyses the importance of developing market-enhancing institutions for restoring economic growth in transition economies during 1991–98. The paper's main finding is that the development of an institutional framework has indeed a significant positive impact on growth, but that progress in achieving macroeconomic stabilisation and implementing broad-based economic reforms remain the key determinants of growth in transition economies. Comparative Economic Studies (2003) 45, 2–24. doi:10.1057/palgrave.ces.8100005
