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.

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.

The brutal war now raging in what was Yugoslavia, the author argues, is fueled not merely by interethnic hatred but also by longstanding disparities in economic well-being among republics and regions. The Communist leadership, having stated its intention when it took power to eliminate economic disparities, nonetheless failed to confront the conflict of interests that distorted the country's economic policy—and thus never worked out a coherent strategy for regional development. Interregional tensions were inflamed by the failure to close the gap between wealthy and poor areas, directly contributing to the breakup of the country. Basing her argument on longitudinal data and on in-depth interviews with Yugoslav leaders at federal and regional levels (Milovan Djilas, Svetozar Vukmanovic-Tempo, Bosko Gluscevic, Hasan Zolic, and several dozen others), Dijana Pleština examines and assesses the economic inequalities as well as the effects that the leadership's regional policies had on them. She shows that despite the mandate for equalization that was part of socialist doctrine, Yugoslav leaders were at first unwilling, and later unable, to formulate policies that would enhance the economic well-being of the poorest regions. Instead, they adopted a strategy of "top-down" growth, which enhanced the further development of the wealthier regions. Later, partially in an effort to placate the disadvantaged, they shifted funds to some of the less-developed regions. Rather than promoting equality, such ad hoc "solutions" fostered competition for scarce resources and intensified political cleavages. Pleština also looks at how the devolution of decisionmaking from central to regional levels, designed to increase government legitimacy and efficiency, actually provided an opportunity for regional leaders to build independent power bases. This trend, in conjunction with the economic slump of the 1980s, further eroded the unity of the federation.

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.

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.
