The nations of the region we called 'Eastern Europe' were once closely linked, so much so that West Europeans had trouble distinguishing them: 'Siberia starts at Checkpoint Charlie,' as we used to say. But since 1989 they have made different choices and taken different paths. Which have been most successful, and why? Are there lessons which can be learned from the East European experience of reform?
