Louis H. Zanardi, Michael J. Courts, Bruce L. Kutnick
DIANE Publishing, 1997 - 83 pages
The objectives in examining U.S. and other donor assistance in Poland were to: assess the status and progress of the country's economic restructuring in the key areas of macroeconomic stabilization, foreign trade and investment, privatization, and banking; describe impediments to these restructuring efforts; discuss the role donors have played in the transformation process; and identify lessons learned that could be useful to other transition countries. The lessons learned from Poland merit consideration by Russia, Ukraine and others.
