La transition est-elle finie ? Non, seule a pris fin la phase de la mutation des économies postsocialistes guidée par le "consensus de Washington". Les expériences de privatisation sont critiquées pour avoir souvent choisi les méthodes les plus rapides, mais les moins efficaces, pour avoir empêché l'indispensable restructuration des firmes et de l'économie. La perspective d'adhésion à l'Union européenne a différencié les pays bénéficiaires en y attirant plus de commerce et d'investissements étrangers. Elle a facilité leur entrée dans la mondialisation de l'économie.

This Palgrave Pivot forms the final part of Andreff's trilogy reviewing the economic aspects of criminal behaviour in sports. In this volume, Andreff focuses on the most economically significant manipulations jeopardising the future of current, modern, sport: rigged online sport betting and doping. The former is framed as a new business undertaken by global criminal networks linked to economic globalisation, whilst the latter discusses empirical evidence, definitions, regulations and various regional and sporting case studies. Andreff summarises by using game theory to propose a new incentive scheme that could act as a solution for addressing such criminal activity in future.
Volumes I and II (available separately) address Sport Manipulations and Corruption in Sport respectively.
This book will be of interest to students, researchers and journalists in sports science, sports management and sports economics.

In this open access book the cost and revenue overruns of Olympic Games from Sydney 2000 to PyeongChang 2018 from eight years before the Games to Games-time are investigated to provide a base for future host cities. The authors evaluated the development of expenditure and revenues of the organizing committees to operate the event, and the investment of taxpayers' money for Olympic venues (non-OCOG budget). The study is based on data collected worldwide and is currently the most advanced study on cost and revenue changes of Olympic Games.
