65th Anniversary Conference of the Institute of Economics, Zagreb - Proceedings

Conference Proceedings contains the final versions of all the papers presented at the 65th Anniversary Conference of the Institute of Economics, Zagreb, held in November 2004. The papers are separated into seven sections by theme, covering the current economic issues that the transition economies were faced with during the EU accession process. The editorial board believes that the published papers will highlight some neglected themes, increase the understanding of certain economic phenomena and in some cases inspire and encourage further research.
