"WARSAW (MarketWatch) — If Poland is a proxy for emerging European economies, it’s no wonder the Warsaw Stock Exchange sees itself as a symbol of the country’s economic transformation since the fall of Communism more than two decades ago.

Founded in 1991 and originally housed in the former Communist Party headquarters, the exchange today sits in a modern, eight-story, custom-built office block just off Warsaw’s again-fashionable Nowy Swiat.

Poland is now widely viewed as a proxy for the wider Central and Eastern European region, something that wasn’t the case before the collapse of Lehman Brothers, said economist Ryszard Petru, a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and a former World Bank economist. "
