Our results, in contrast to findings in Central and East European Countries, suggest that newly established firms do not out perform those that existed under central planning during the transition process. In addition, while competition seems to play no role in employment determination, disorganisation is shown to constrain firm employment in the Ukraine but not in Russia. Such outcomes are explained by the nature and timing of restructuring in these countries.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||LICOS Centre for Transition Economics||Series/Report no.:||LICOS Discussion Paper; 81/1999||Copyright (published version):||1999, LICOS Centre for Transition Economics||Keywords:||Employment; De novo firms; Traditional firms; Russia; Ukraine||Subject LCSH:||Industrial organization--Russia
