The new book, "Entrepreneurship in Transition Economies", edited by Arnis Sauka and Alexander Chepurenko, presents a state-of-the-art portrait of entrepreneurship in the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as well as Georgia and Ukraine. The book contains a chapter “The Business Cycle and Early-Stage Entrepreneurship in Latvia” written by Marija Krumina and Anders Paalzow (BICEPS/SSE Riga).
On July 1st BICEPS researchers - Nicolas Gavoille, Marija Krūmiņa and Anna Zasova - participated in the annual festival "LAMPA" and showed how economists use models to answer questions like "Why do people decide to form a relationship?" or "How do people exploit imperfections of benefit systems to extract extra gains?". It was great fun and thank you to all participants who came to listen to us to the Swedish tent and initiated very interesting discussions. Hope to meet you again at LAMPA!
