Hungary and Poland: The Transformation from a Command to a Market Economy, 1989-1998. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 1998 (Hungary/Poland).
This paper examines the economic changes that have taken place in recent years in two central European countries, Hungary and Poland. Findings in the paper are based on materials gathered during the summer of 1998 on a Fulbright-Hays seminar visit to Hungary and Poland and from talks with officials and professors in those countries. Observations in the paper present a general view of what has transpired in the last 10 years of economic change and development in Hungary and Poland; concluding that, although both countries will struggle with social problems into the 21st century, as long as they continue to move toward a privatized market economy and work toward economic and social reforms they will integrate successfully into the European Community.
