Does Privatisation Improve Performance of Industrial Enterprises? Empirical Evidence from Russia

Post-Communist Economies, 2000, vol. 12, issue 3, 337-363

Abstract: This study, based on panel data from 189 industrial enterprises in 1992-96, shows that privatisation 'on average' produces little improvement in performance of Russian enterprises. However, disaggregating the process, we reveal that methods of privatisation do influence performance but the impact is not always positive. The state seems to be a passive shareholder. At the same time, our results suggest that majority state ownership is preferable to a state minority stockholding, possibly because the absence of a monitoring shareholder in the latter case does not permit managers to achieve their own objectives at the expense of other shareholders.
