The political economy of transformation in Hungary
Abstract (Summary)Across Eastern Europe sweeping changes happened in the 1990s. Although the field of economics became preoccupied with the region during the decade, mainstream analyses were confined to prescribing policies rather than understanding change with their historical and institutional context. This dissertation examines transition processes with a historical perspective using the French Regulation School as a theoretical framework. The conclusion reached through the research is that a neoliberal-integrationist strategy of accumulation was adopted in the 1990s, and although growth has at least been temporarily restored in Hungary, the country remains on the periphery of the global capitalist system.
