Opportunistic behavioural patterns in privatisation process of Central European transition countries Shapour Zafarpour
Abstract: This paper points out a few specific features privatisation process, which seem to have escaped the attention of policy-makers in Central European Transition Countries, and which must be taken into account by all those considering the choice of their privatisation methods.

Customers as the core of contemporary marketing / Tihomir Vranešević
Bibliografija: 10 jed. . - Abstract: In recent times the concept of marketing is undergoing changes. Customers, as the greatest assets of a company, have to be viewed not only as the targets of marketing activities, but also of marketing management. Customer satisfaction is and has to be seen as the basic guarantee of the long-term success and survival of a company. Research into economic entities in Croatia has shown that companies which show willingness to become customers oriented realise and expect a significantly higher rate of profit than those which have not yet fully recognised the significance of being customers oriented. .
Trading out of poverty : some major issues / Mia Mikić
Bibliografija: 20 jed. . - Abstract: What are the ways in which trade (trade liberalisation) may have impact on poverty? This paper looks at some of the findings of the analytical literature on trade-poverty linkages that operate through the impact of trade on income distribution, and through the impact of trade on economic growth. This paper further asks the question whether trade effects on poverty depend on a particular type of trade liberalisation. In particular, it exposes the weaknesses of non-reciprocal trade liberalisation. The trading preferences granted by the European Union (EU) to Pacific Island Countries (PICs) and their poverty-reducing potential are briefly examined at the end. .
Reforming the IMF : long term lessons from short term crises / Graham Bird
Bibliografija: 32 jed. . - Abstract: There is a danger that reform of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be dominated by its experience in the context of the East Asian financial crisis. Although there are clearly lessons to learn from this, it would be unwise to allow recent events to dominante the reform agenda. In many respects the crisis only provides a further specific example of more general and fundamental issues spanning the design and implementation of conditionality. exchange rate policy in developing countries and countries in transition, the ability of the Fund to mobilise and manage other financial flows, the size of IMF lending, the international lender of last resort function, and capital account liberalisation. . - Moreover, to focus on the Fundďs role in better off developing countries is to ignore its role in low income countries. There is a problem of attention bias. Reforming the IMF for the 21st century requires that all these issues are addressed. .
