Peteris Gulans, in cooperation with the Institute of Economics of the Latvian Academy of Sciences, published a book in 2003 entitled “Latvian Economy at the Turn of the Century” ISBN 9984-9574-4-6.
The collapse of the Latvian economy and the protracted period of renewal show that the economic policy pursued during the transformation was not sufficiently adequate to the new conditions dictated by global market relations and the peculiarities of a small country with an open economy. One of the most significant factors hindering development was and still is the weak understanding of the regularities of economic processes and Latvia’s interests. The articles in the book try to alleviate this shortcoming. They were created by the author studying the most topical problems of the transformation and development of the national economy. Provides an independent (non-political group) assessment of them and argues the principles of acceptable solutions for Latvia.
