Within the previously CMEA market, the best firms were selected to outside privatisation and outperformed insider/state owned firms. Outside privatisation was resisted in EU oriented firms and ownership was found to have no effect on performance. We argue that insider/state ownership in previously CMEA and EU markets builds up political support for the market system during its initial stages, ensuring its long-term success.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||William Davidson Institute, University of Michigan||Copyright (published version):||2000, Authors||Subject LCSH:||Business enterprises--Europe, Eastern
