Transforming Russian Enterprises: From State Control to Employee Ownership (Contributions in Economics & Economic History)by John Logue
Synopses & Reviews
Russia is moving dramatically ahead in reforming its economy and its firms. This joint Russian and American work focuses on the key issue in the Russian economic reform process—how to convert state-owned firms into successful private companies capable of competing in a market economy. Unique case studies of Russian enterprises, their legal and internal structure, management philosophy, and economic performance, provide insightful analyses of the ongoing Russian experience with economic reform. Recent Russian legislation and its implications for privatization are also discussed.
Book News Annotation:
Looks at employee ownership in the Russian process of privatization and economic reform, tracing the development of reform efforts from Khrushchev through Yeltsin and examining empirical changes within six firms as they privatized using employee ownership. Includes a section on lessons of American and Russian models of ownership and management in employee-owned enterprises.
