A historically unique experiment is about to enter its second decade - German unification. Early hopes for a rapid & smooth economic transformation soon turned out to be overly optimistic. Despite massive financial transfers, the political promise of a "blooming landscape" remains a vision. Actual developments have left deep scars on the labor market, & the effects will be felt for decades to come. Was this outcome to be expected, perhaps even inevitable? What went wrong, & what were the available options? Or is the current state of Eastern German labor market in fact better than is commonly assumed?
