Animated infographic that illustrates the absurdities often applied when the term "Eastern Europe" is used. Which countries are in Eastern Europe? Does Eastern Europe as we knew it exist? Has the extent of Eastern Europe changed since the Cold War? Europe's divisions are indeed grave. But counting the ex-communist countries as a single category is outdated and damaging Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Eastern Europe is a concept dating from the Cold War. Geographically it didn't make much sense even then. Finland and Greece are not really Western, and Prague is west of Vienna. Nowadays the term doesn't make sense politically or economically either. Even cold war Eastern Europe wasn't a monolith. It included Mavericks like Romania and rebels like Yugoslavia and Al...

The global economic and financial crisis hit Eastern Europe harder than anywhere in the world. The region was shut off from global financial flows essentially overnight and some Eastern European countries lost a staggering 20% of GDP in one year. What does such a large loss in economic output do to the average household? The latest Transition Report of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) provides some worrying answers. As Erik Berglöf explains in this INET interview, the crisis in combination with loose social safety nets forced people in Eastern Europe to cut down on food expenses and limit visits to doctors. The report, entitled "Crisis in Transition: The People's Perspective," contains more than numbers on economic and social conditions; the report is also infor...

The Wild East in Europe is often compared to the Wild West in America a century or so ago. The Russian oligarchs, goes the soothing analogy, are local versions of Morgan, Rockefeller, Pullman and Vanderbilt. But this affinity is spurious. the United States always had a civic culture with civic values and an aspiration to, ultimately, create a harmonious and benevolent civic society. Criminality was regarded as a shameful stepping stone on the way to an orderly community of learned, civilized, law-abiding citizens. This cannot be said about Russia, for instance. The criminal there is, if anything, admired and emulated. Even the language of legal business in countries in transition is suffused with underworld parlance. There is no - and never was - a civic tradition in the countries of east...
