When is Transition Over? is the thirty-fourth annual Public Lecture-Seminar Series organized by the Department of Economics at Western Michigan University. This year, the series focuses on the dramatic changes sweeping through the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and China--changes that have challenged policy makers and fascinated economists. This year's series is directed by Annette N. Brown, Assistant Professor in the WMU Economics Department, with the assistance of Sisay Asefa, William Kem, Christopher O'Leary, and Huizhong Zhou, and is co-sponsored by the W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. All Wednesday afternoon lectures, followed by a question and answer session and a reception, are open to the public. During his or her visit, each scholar also presents an academic seminar, which is open to graduate students, faculty, and all interested practitioners.
