Small firms and entrepreneurship in Central and Eastern Europe. A socio-economic perspective
Much of the research on transformation/transition in Central and Eastern Countries (CEECs) focuses on macroeconomic issues (inflation, economic growth, employment...). Little research has been devoted so far to microeconomic analysis. Recently the issue of new enterprises and firm founders has moved to the centre of economic and policy considerations. Readers of this book will learn about the role played by these firms in the transformation of central and eastern European countries. The book also includes contributions from Central and Eastern Europe on which little or no investigation has been performed until now (Yugoslavia, Romania, Slovakia).
