Modelling the privatization process in transition economies
Alternative economic paradigms give rise to alternative models of transition, which give rise to alternative privatization processes for transition economies. This is because each transition model is associated with a unique privatization process compatible with the predetermined assumptions and value judgements of the paradigm in question. As a result, five alternative models of transition that give rise to five alternative privatization processes are considered: the shock therapy model of transition; the neoclassical gradualist model of transition; the Post Keynesian model of transition; the pluralistic market socialist model of transition; and the Chinese model of transition. The privatization method adopted is directly linked with the value judgements associated by the economic paradigm in question. Comparisons of privatization processes that ignored the value judgements of economic paradigms were meaningless.
