Much has been written about the economic and political problems of countries that are in the process of changing from centrally planned systems to market systems. Most studies have focused on the economic, legal, political and sociological problems these economies have had to face during the transition period. However, not much has been written about the dramatic changes that have to be made to the accounting and financial system of a transition economy. This book was written to help fill that gap. This book is the second in a series to examine accounting and financial system reform in transition economies. The first book used Russia as a case study. The present volume in the series examines some additional aspects of the reform in Russia and also looks at the accounting and financial system reform efforts that are being made in Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Armenia and five Central Asian republics.
Many books have been published about the economic and political problems of countries that are in the process of changing from centrally planned systems to market systems. However, not much has been written about the dramatic changes that have to be made to the accounting and financial system of a transition economy. This book specifically fills that gap, dealing with accounting and financial system reform in Eastern Europe and Asia.
