Abstract

Several proposals for a wholesale privatization of public enterprises in Eastern Europe are discussed. These proposals include the distribution of "vouchers" to private citizens, as well as the use of mutual funds, privatization companies, and other forms of financial intermediaries. The paper analyzes the implications for economic efficiency of the different forms of ownership and control that would emerge from the proposals, as well as their main macroeconomic consequences.
