Abstract

Using a sample of 25 economies in transition from 1990 to 2001, this paper deals with the evolution of output and its relation to the different large-scale privatization policies applied by the countries. Ceteris paribus, we econometrically show that the choice of a privatization policy can lock a country into a path of underdevelopment, especially massive giveaways. We also find that macroeconomic performance gains come from gradual sales to outsiders and policies promoting the emergence of a new private sector (privatization from below).
