BUSH, KEITH - From the Command Economy to the Market: A Collection of Interviews.

Title: From the Command Economy to the Market: A Collection of Interviews.
Description: Aldershot :. Dartmouth Pub Co, 1991.Hardcover. 220 pp.- Collection of interviews that discusses the prospects for economic reform in the USSR and Eastern Europe. The interviews were conducted by Keith Bush with academics, think-tank economists, bankers, businessmen, accountants, and officials of international organizations in the United States and the United Kingdom. They were subsequently adapted and broadcast to an estimated 40 million listeners in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. All the specialists interviewed here have both a keen interest in the processes taking place in the Soviet Union and wide-ranging experience in dealing with Soviet economic issues. While most of the discussions focus on the Soviet Union, we also obtain insights into and analyses of reform processes in other countries of Central Europe, particularly Germany, Poland and Hungary. Keith Bush was the Director of Radio Liberty Research for 15 years and is now a member of the newly created RFE/RL Research Institute. The 26 specialists included in the collection do not speak with the same voice. In fact, there are several disagreements - for example, that over the advantages and disadvantages of the introduction of a convertible ruble based on gold. But the disagreements are more of a technical nature and do not detract from the remarkable consensus on the prescription for a successful transformation of the Soviet economy from the bankcrupt command model to an effective market economy.English text.
