The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development: The Building of a Bank for East Central Europe
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was established to be the primary lending institution with respect to the political and economic transformation of the states of Central Europe from command to market economies. This study is about the EBRD, its goals, strategies and policies. It is also about the political infighting between the main shareholders of the EBRD--the United States and the states of the European Union--and how this infighting over economic ideology and status has and will continue to impact upon the states of Central and Eastern Europe and their long-term ability to make this transition.
