Economic Reform in East German Industry
Economic Reform in East German Industry
By Gert Leptin and Manfred Melzer
Oxford University Press, 1979, 200 pp

The final study in the excellent series on East European economies initiated by the University of Glasgow. The "new economic system" of the 1960s is factually presented and fairly judged, and the authors also show how the reforms came to an end, giving way in the 1970s to short-term adaptation.
