Vladimer Papava – Necroeconomics: The Political Economy of Post-Communist Capitalism

“The author discusses the experience of Georgia following the collapse of the Soviet Union in a broad analytical and empirical framework. He displays a deep knowledge of post-Communist transition and provides an interesting analysis of various sectors of the transitional economy.”
-Professor Leszek Balcerowicz, President of the National Bank of Poland

“Vladimer Papava has written an insightful account of the policy mistakes and successes of the economic transition in Georgia. This highly readable work flags mistakes pushed by outsiders, such as overly complicated regulatory legislation, and the failures of Georgia’s own politicians, most notably, allowing a permissive climate for corruption.”
-Dr. Keith Crane, Senior Economist, RAND Corporation
