This volume posits the most comprehensive and relevant model yet developed to explain the workings of Yugoslavia's economy. The authors have developed a model that is both theoretically oriented and empirically relevant--ensuring its appropriateness for recommending and evaluating alternative policy remedies for the acute problems of inflation, unemployment, and foreign trade now facing the country. Already chosen to represent Yugoslavia in the ongoing international Project LINK, the model is distinguished by its policy emphasis and by its ability to capture the fundamental divisions of the Yugoslav economy.

This volume treats various aspects of the Yugoslav economic model and focuses on the long-term program of stabilization undertaken by that country in the last few years. The contributors discuss such diverse topics as the country's socioeconomic relations, and problems and prospects for carrying out a long-term stabilization program. Essays on the Yugoslav Economic Model puts forth a number of assertions relating to the country's economic performance: that Yugoslavia must resort to greater reliance on markets; it must become more export oriented with a fully convertible currency; the country must rid itself of debilitating inflation; it must preserve a social policy consistent with its socialist principles.

Furthermore, Yugoslavia must take all of these measures and more within the constraints of the existing socio-political framework of socialist self-management and heterogeneous population. The contributors each agree that given the country's diversity, a resort to markets is the only meaningful option available.

This 1973 posthumous publication of Rudolf Bićanić's last work on the Yugoslav economy is a fitting tribute to a great Yugoslav of the pre-war era, who survived the revolution and made a notable contribution to the new Yugoslavia. Bićanić was a man of broad learning, equally at home as a geographer, an economist and a political scientist, who was also a man of affairs. His book provides a lucid survey of the economic development of Yugoslavia from 1918 to the 1970s. Bićanić discusses the three planning models used in post-war Yugoslavia - the centralized (1947-1951), the decentralized (1952-1964) and the polycentric (1965-1970) - and discusses the implications of these models in the context of Yugoslavia's industrialization. The book is not only essential reading for anyone wishing to understand Yugoslavia's economic background, but it also raises questions of general interest concerning the application of socialist principles to the industrialization of developing societies.

Here is a microeconomic model of joint ventures in Yugoslavia between multinational corporations and Yugoslav labor-managed enterprises. This book focuses on Yugoslavia's unique socio-economic system with its labor-managed enterprises playing host to direct foreign investment. The analysis turns toward multinational corporations as vehicles of direct foreign investment, then proceeds to an examination of Yugoslavian joint-venture agreements between these two partners of diverging interests.

After a period of successful growth in the 1970s, Yugoslavia was hit very hard by a severe balance of payments crisis at the end of the 1970s that has overshadowed the economic scene since. What were the causes of the crisis? Could it have been averted through the adoption of alternative policies in the 1970s? What can be said about the adjustment policies pursued since 1980 in the light of the lessons of the 1970s? These questions are addressed in this paper with the help of some counterfactual policy simulations for the period 1973-79, using a macroeconomic model developed for the Yugoslav economy. The simulations yielded three main conclusions. First, the payments crisis was attributable to a deterioration in the policy environment, particularly with respect to the exchange rate, wages, and interest rates, although external shocks and/or excessive expansion of domestic demand have played an aggravating role. Second, the crisis could have been avoided with alternative macroeconomic policies. Third, Yugoslavia could have achieved external balance and satisfactory growth in investment and output since 1980 had the policy environment been reformed promptly and significantly.

What are the consequences of Yugoslavia's existence – and breakup – for the present? This book reflects on this very question, identifying and analysing the political legacies left behind by Yugoslavia through the prism of continuities and ruptures between the past and present of the area. After the collapse of Yugoslavia, it's former states adopted a nation-building process which opted to eradicate the past as such an approach seemed more convenient for the new national projects. The new states adopted new institutions, new market-oriented economic paradigms and new national symbols. Yugoslavia existed for 70 years and to consider the current political situation in post-Yugoslav states such as Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Kosovo without taking into account the legacy and remnants of Yugoslavia is to discount a vital part of their political history. This volume takes a multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted approach to examining the legacy of Yugoslavia, covering politics, society, international relations and economics. Focusing on distinctive features of Yugoslavia including worker self-management, the combination of liberalism and communism and the Cold War policy of Non-Alignment, The Legacy of Yugoslavia places Yugoslavia in historical perspective and connects the region's past with its contemporary political situation.
