Reform and Counterreform: The Path to Market in Hungary and Cuba
Preview not available

Abstract

Countries' reform histories strongly shape marketization processes. They alter structural conditions, and market reforms generate politically laden signals that rival actors deploy in struggles over property rights. Reform legacies also affect the robustness and diversification of the indigenous private sector, help to determine the soundness of incipient markets, and shape actors' assessments of new reform initiatives and policy choices. Hungary in the early 1980s made political-institutional adjustments that allowed domestic private enterprise to thrive. Cuba since the early 1990s has followed a market segmentation strategy by encouraging foreign investment while stifling the indigenous private sector.
