Abstract:The paper gives a critical assessment of the reaction of various trends of economics, when confronted with the diversified experience of postsocialist transformation and accompanying surprises, like the initial depression, the unexpected consequences of fast privatisation, or the unconventional policies and performance of China and Vietnam. It discusses the mainstream transition doctrine, and its gradual qualification, as well as institutionalist and evolutionary approaches of the systemic transformation problems. It concludes that this grand and painful historical experience has until now failed to substantially modify mainstream economics, even though its unfolding has strongly questioned the latter's theoretical and methodological premises.

- Many ideas and many innovative and creative approaches to management are lost because of the intrinsic tendency to reject the new, the novel, the ground challenging and the ground-breaking idea. International Journal of Management Concepts and Philosophy encourages novel yet rigorously thought-out and rigorously developed ground-challenging and ground-breaking ideas and perspectives. It encourages multi-disciplinary perspectives and diverse cross-pollination of thought and approaches to management practice.
