The collapse of socialism in Eastern European continues to have profound and far-reaching implications both within and outside Europe. "Revitalizing Socialist Enterprise" examines the privatization efforts in former socialist states in the wider context of restructuring governments, industries, enterprises, and management. The contributors--a group of experts on each of the countries discussed--examine a cross-section of principal features across all the countries, and reveal striking similarities and differences in approaches to structural change. While the need for change across most countries has a common origin--an inability to make the communist economic system work effectively-- the "triggers" for major change have been varied.
This study includes: two chapters on Russia representing very different viewpoints, details of the Czechoslovakian "voucher" privatization scheme, two case studies of the break-up of large enterprises in East Germany, and studies of China, Poland, North Korea, and Cuba.
Contributors: John Heath, Elena Veduta, Konstantin Kagalovsky, Serik A. Akhanov, and Pawl Bozyk.
