The Political Economy of Gunnar Myrdal: An Institutional Basis for the Transformation Problem

The Political Economy of Gunnar Myrdal: An Institutional Basis for the Transformation Problem Book Reviews CEE countries. He explains not only what Myrdal did and wrote about the subject but also what Myrdal would have done, according to Angresano, if he had been present in the 1990s. “Myrdal would agree . . . ,” “Myrdal would argue . . . ,” and similar expressions are frequent. Such an approach is not very convincing. Dealing with transformation problems in CEE countries and Myrdal’s thought within a single monograph requires some peculiarity in the way the material is organized. However, if readers accept the heterogenous nature of the book, they will find enlightening reflections on both issues.

Abstract

Book Reviews CEE countries. He explains not only what Myrdal did and wrote about the subject but also what Myrdal would have done, according to Angresano, if he had been present in the 1990s. “Myrdal would agree . . . ,” “Myrdal would argue . . . ,” and similar expressions are frequent. Such an approach is not very convincing. Dealing with transformation problems in CEE countries and Myrdal’s thought within a single monograph requires some peculiarity in the way the material is organized. However, if readers accept the heterogenous nature of the book, they will find enlightening reflections on both issues. Bo Sandelin, University of Gothenburg
