Abstract

Latvia regained its independence from the former Soviet Union in August 1991. Since then, it has begun the slow and arduous path of replacing the centrally-planned, socialist system with an economic structure based on free-market principles. Latvia began this transition "in a difficult environment characterized by macroeconomic imbalances inherited from four decades of central planning and disruptions caused by a sharp contraction of trade with Russia and other states of the former Soviet Union."
