Abstract

Transition economies have an initial condition of high human capital relative to living standards. I explore the possible implications of this key fact by surveying and adapting literature on growth and inequality. I focus especially on the long run and policy options.

Keywords: Transition economies, human capital, growth, inequality, liquidity constraints, educational reform, long run

JEL Classification: P2, O15, I2
