The sweeping political changes and institutional transformation in the former Soviet Union, together with the market shock created by the collapse of the Soviet economy were expected to generate substantial changes in firm behaviours. Privatisation, in particular, was thought to constitute the condition for the transformation of the state socialist enterprises to Western capitalist firms. This paper explores to what extent the variation in changes in institutions, markets and ownership resulted in the transformation of Ukrainian and Estonian enterprises at the end of the 1990s.
