Political Economy of Privatisation in Estonia
This paper surveys the pre-conditions for privatisation in Estonia and the respective concepts of different governments. The paper will also identify the most important features of different legislation which have determined the path of privatisation in Estonia. The methods and results of small-scale privatisation, large-scale privatisation, restitution and land reform are also discussed. A special section is dedicated to the analysis of the Estonian voucher scheme and the privatisation of dwellings. It is argued, that although a very complicated privatisation scheme has been created, the process has continued in Estonia during the period 1990-1995 without major setbacks. The private sector has achieved a dominant role in the economy, due in part to privatisation and the emergence of a set of new private firms.
