The transition increased the demand for social support, but the level of benefits set in the communist era is already high and threatens to stifle future economic growth. This book assesses the past, present, and future of social policies in the 27 post-communist countries. Walter Conner describes social policy during the communist period and its legacy. Mark Kramer traces the evolution of social policy in Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Anders Aslund examines the role of social policy in Russia's economic transition. Scott Thomas summarizes the contributions of theWest.
