Description
Excerpt: As Professor Wagner so eloquently stated in his comments, Professor Pejovich's paper is an important contribution for understanding the difference in progress that nations are making in the transition from socialism to capitalism. In transition states, the prevailing culture favors collectivism, egalitarianism, emphasis on extended family, and shared values. Such a culture supports an activist, paternalistic state. In contrast, a capitalist economy requires a culture of individualism that encourages the behavior based on the principles of self-interest, self-determination, self-responsibility and free market competition. In moving away from socialism and towards capitalism some states have incurred greater transaction costs than others due to the gap between informal institutions (culture) and formal institutions of capitalism. Hence some countries have made more progress than others have in the transition. Professor Pejovich's examination of Central and Eastern European countries supports his thesis.
