For a survey of the evidence and explanations of differences between the labour markets of CEECs and CIS countries, see Pastore and Verashchagina (2003,2004). ~ Mass unemployment erupted in most CEECs in 1990, soon after the beginning of the reform process intended to lead the centrally planned socialist system to a market driven capitalist one. In 1989, however unreliable they may have been, the official statistics had recorded sizeable numbers of excess vacancies. Kornai (1992) explained chronic labour shortage as a normal outcome of the socialist system and its emphasis on forced growth attained via extensive production methods used by the state to extract the entire available labour surplus.
Any persistent geographical unemployment differentials, then, are not evidence of uneven labour demand, but reflections of workers' underlying preferences for certain areas (Marston 1985, p. 57). Hall (1970) claims that regional unemployment differences in the USA in the 1950s and 1960s were equilibrium phenomena due to the presence of higher-thanaverage wages in high unemployment regions. These high wages provided an incentive to remain in high unemployment areas, as in the equilibrium case. This finding is difficult to explain in a dis-equilibrium context, for if there were free labour mobility and wage flexibility, wages should adjust.
