Annotation Academics, a World Bank economist, and a railway official offer reports on the economic health of the railways of Eastern Europe. Focusing on the issue of competitiveness, the reports discuss market orientation and privatization issues. A round table summary offers recommendations to further the competitiveness of railways. While it is suggested that privatization should not be a dogma, independence of management and marketing to consumer needs are deemed essential practices. Annotation c.
