The Eurasian Growth Paradox

November 21 2006
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Du Luxembourg 3, Floor 7, Brussels
Speakers: Dr. Anders Åslund
Time: 12:00

The post-communist transition to open and market-based economic
orders has been patchy and uneven. In general, countries closer to
Europe that undertook rapid reforms have grown much faster than other
post-communist countries in the former Soviet sphere. However, during
the last years growth has sparked also in the Commonwealth of
Independent States (CIS) countries; in fact, the CIS has grown much
faster than Central European states in the last five years.

The Eurasian growth is often explained by the
surge in resource prices in recent years, but is it entirely determined
by the price of resources? Is the price of resources even the most
influential factor in CIS growth? What role have economic reforms
played in these countries recent growth pattern?

With this letter ECIPE cordially invites you to a lunch seminar on the Eurasian growth paradox. At the seminar, Dr. Anders Åslund
of The Peterson Institute (formerly the Institute for International
Economics) will present his recent research on Eurasian growth. Dr.
Åslund is a Senior Fellow of The Peterson Institute and prior to
joining the institute he was a Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment
for International Peace. A former Professor of Economics at the
Stockholm School of Economics and Director of Stockholm Institute of
East European Economies, Dr. Åslund is one of the leading scholars in
the world on transition economics.
