Is There an Austrian Approach to Transition?
This paper discusses the meaning of the term "transition" and its implications for policy making. It is suggested that an Austrian view would enhance a better understanding of what has been happening in Central and Eastern Europe in the past decade. Within this framework, the analysis should be based on three criteria: acquisition of knowledge, individual responsibility, free entry. It concludes that future transition analysis should devote more attention to the way a number of subjectivistic features drive institutional change, as well as to the features of the new opportunity sets made available to individuals.
