Economic Reforms in Eastern Europe and Prospects for the 1980s focuses on the institution of economic reforms and prospects in Eastern Europe, including manpower availability, scarce and expensive energy and raw materials, deficiency of technological innovation, and inflexibilities in management. The selection first offers information on the economic reforms in Bulgaria, Romanian economic reforms, and the economic reforms in Czechoslovakia. Discussions focus on "the kj problem" and its resolution, evaluation of the Bulgarian model, Romanian economic development, and principles contained in the directives. The text then examines the reform of the system of economic management in Poland; economic reforms and consumers in Eastern Europe; and the prospects for the 1980s of the economic reforms in Bulgaria and Romania. The publication takes a look at the economic prospects for the 1980s of Czechoslovakia and the German Democratic Republic. Topics include factors impending economic growth, overemployment, increases in consumer good prices, welfare of consumers, and decreasing economic growth. The book further elaborates on the economic prospects for the 1980s of Hungary and Poland and the effects of energy development on East European economic prospects. The selection is a vital reference for economists and readers interested in the prospects for the 1980s of the economic reforms in Eastern Europe.
