The basic part covers the transition to a market economy since 1990 focusing on: (i) the EU Enlargement policy and other determinants of the liberalization of markets and decreasing the size of the state; (ii) the effects of economic liberalization and size of the state on economic performance; (iii) recent challenges of the global financial crisis on the role of financial deregulation and liberalization on economic performance in Eastern Europe.
