Comparative Economic Systems
Course Overview

Comment Icon0 This course will introduce students to the new and evolving field of comparative economics that has emerged from the transition experience and the economics of transition. Before the economics of transition, comparative economics was devoted mostly to the comparison of capitalism and socialism, and in practice mostly to the study of socialist economic systems (central planning, Yugoslav self management, market socialism…). The transition experience and the economics of transition have shown the importance of the institutions underlying the capitalist system. Comparative economics is now turning to the comparative analysis of institutions of existing capitalist systems and to the historical evolution of those institutions.
