Eastern Europe

The economic success of former Soviet Bloc countries widely varies. Few of these newly-capitalized nations have been able to achieve economic and social stability. Guest host Neal Conan and a panel of experts will examine the progress of two Eastern European countries, Poland and the Ukraine, that represent extremes in the region. That's next on Talk of the Nation from NPR News. Guests: Jeffrey Sachs Director, Harvard Institute for International Development Professor of International Trade, Harvard University Economic Advisor to several governments in Latin America, the former Soviet Union, Asia, and Eastern Europe Andrew Rapacyznski Professor, Columbia University Law School Director, Privatization Project at Central European University Budapest Hungry Listeners call in
