Overview

This text, in considering the roadblocks facing transition economies, focuses on a vital but generally negected sector—large state-owned industrial enterprises. Despite significant strides in privatization, formerly socialist countries have all found it immensely difficult, both politically and practically, to dismantle large enterprises, given the massive unemployment and economic dislocation that would result. The first systematic, genuinely comparative analysis of the biggest hurdle to the development of true market economies, this study, with its wealth of data and informed interpretation, will be essential reading for students and scholars alike.

US scholars of business focus on the large state-owned industrial enterprises as a major roadblock to transforming the economies of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Russia. They look at the conditions of the enterprises before the transition began and their performance since, the policies toward privatization and managing and restructuring the remaining state enterprises, and lessons and prospects.
