The Evolution of Ownership Structure in Firms Privatized through Wholesale Schemes in the Czech Republic and Poland


This authors of this volume investigate the actual evolution of ownership structure in firms privatized through "wholesale schemes" – voucher privatization in the Czech Republic and the National Investment Fund  program in Poland – using original databases. They attempt to answer questions concerning the factors influencing this evolution and analyze the interconnections between property rights reallocation, ownership concentration, and the corporate governance of companies.
