Traditionally, the study of comparative economic systems has focused on a comparison of market economy and planned economy. The collapse of the Soviet and neighboring command economies and the process of transition to markets have broadened the focus of this field to include mixed systems and systemic change. The focus of this course will be: (i) the nature of economic systems; (ii) different economic systems (capitalism, planned socialism and market socialism); (iii) systemic change; (iv) the worldwide performance of different systems and the collapse of the command economies; (v) the process of transition and the performance during the 1990s (the first decade and beyond) and; (vi) assessment of transition and the performance of transition economies through 2010.
