Industrial demonopolization and competition policy in Poland and Hungary’: a comment

Russell Pittman ()

The Economics of Transition, 1996, vol. 4, issue 2, 491-495

Abstract: Protestations that ‘neither neoclassical economics nor Western experience offers clear guidelines concerning optimal competition policies towards state‐owned firms in a transition economy’ are overly pessimistic. Both sources suggest the importance of attacking barriers to entry into markets, especially when those barriers are associated with vertical integration or exclusive vertical contracts by already dominant enterprises. Beyond this, they demonstrate that different priorities of enforcement are appropriate in transition economies and that competition advocacy is especially important in this context.
