Economic Survey of Europe 2001 No.2

Since 1948 the Economic Survey of Europe provides regular, comprehensive analyses of economic developments and prospects in the entire ECE region. Following the radical changes in political regimes in the formerly centrally planned economies of the ECE region, the Survey has since 1990 placed particular emphasis on developments in the countries in transition of eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and the western response in terms of aid, trade and private investment. Starting in 1998 issues of the Survey have incorporated the Economic Bulletin for Europe.

Issue No. 1 of the 2001 Survey is available below in MS Word and PDF format. It is also available as a United Nations publication (Sales No. E.01.II.E.14).  This issue contains an update of recent economic developments in the ECE region and, in addition, special chapters on Domestic Savings in the Transition Economies, Economic Growth and Foreign Direct Investment in the Transition Economies and Economic Transformation and Real Exchange Rates in the 2000s: The Balassa-Samuelson Connection.
