Privatization in Eastern and Central Europe : objectives, constraints, and models of divestiture (Inglês)

This paper is devoted largely to a taxonomic discussion of objectives, constraints, and models of divestiture in privatization programs, but the authors also present some concluding observations. The plethora of divestiture options makes choice difficult. From an individual government perspective, the choice of preferred model will vary depending on the objectives, the weights given to the objectives, and the estimation of practical difficulties in implementation. In this respect, there is no correct answer about how to privatize. Decisions are highly political, mediated through still inchoate political processes, invoking strong interests and lobbies, and with a genuine possibility of popular backlash in societies sensitive to wide discrepancies in wealth. The paper considers various objectives of privatization programs in the region. The environment for divestiture is described and the constraints and barriers to privatization delineated. The authors conclude with an analysis of the more prominent models advanced for privatization, with a discussion of advantages and disadvantages.
