CAPITO aimed at comparing the emerging capitalist regimes in six countries of Eastern Europe. The project applied a simple scheme of "tradition-emulation-invention" to identify the origins of institutional change in the economies of the region, and define the real types of nascent capitalism in an East-East and an East-West comparison.
