Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An in-depth political history of privatization in Central and Eastern Europe, The Politics of Greed demonstrates that the way that assets are privatized matters, both with respect to national economic performance and the successful development of the rule of law. Andrew Harrison Schwartz had unprecedented access to high-level Czech government officials during the Czech Republic's privatization process. This book is the result of the unique insights he gained and the innovative analytical framework he subsequently developed ownership regime theory which for the first time places ownership structures at the center of analysis of political transitions. Engaging and important, this book applies ownership regime theory to a broad range of post-communist privatization cases, including those of the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Russia, and Ukraine.

Book News Annotation:

The national privatization strategies urged by the neoliberal Washington Consensus on the transition countries of Eastern and Central Europe, argues the late Schwartz (formerly of the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy), were often decisive for the political and economic development of the countries involved. Assessing the political, legal, and institutional environments that were forged with privatization, he argues that privatization is not necessarily connected to the quality of capitalism and democracy, rapid privatization may generate owners resistant to state regulation of markets and may provoke popular backlash, privatization schemes that encourage foreign direct investment are more likely to accelerate capitalism and democracy, and that competent and independent market regulators are central to the growth of capitalism and democracy.
