The Squandered Dividend: The Free Market and the Environment in Eastern Europe

By Manser, Roger

London, England, U.K.: Earthscan Publications, 1993. An account by an economic journalist of how Eastern and Central Europe has become a dumping ground for obsolete technologies, products, and waste; how the introduction of capitalism after 1989 did not make any real improvement to the environment as governments were more committed to reaping the short-term benefits of rapid privatization than to building an ecologically sustainable economy (upper right corner of first page before title page clipped, otherwise a bright, clean copy in near fine conditon). First Edition. Trade Paperback. Very Good.
