Finland was the o nly developed market economy to trade with the Soviet Union on a bilateral basis until the collapse of central planning. In contrast with Eastern European countries, Finnish authorities - and public opinion as well - have traditionally argued that this trade was particularly profitable for the Finnish trade. This is claimed to be true both at the company level and for the Finnish economy as a whole.

An English-language discussion on these issues has been lacking so far. Drawing on available research, interviews, memoirs and even novels, this book concludes that until proven wrong, arguments on the profitability of Eastern Trade seem to be true.
