Comparative Capitalism and the Transitional Periphery

Firm Centred Perspectives

Edited by Mehmet Demirbag and Geoffrey Wood

With a growing body of literature dealing with business and management issues in the transitional economies of Central and Eastern Europe, the study of the ‘transitional periphery’, or post-Soviet economies, is sparse. A combination of rich natural resources and strategic locations make these economies of significant importance. This book provides fresh and recent research on both firms and the business environment in this region. It serves as a key reference work for those interested in comparative capitalism, business and society in the post state socialist world.

Chapter 8: The state and company managements in Belarus

Hanna Danilovich and Richard Croucher

Abstract

This chapter analyses changes in the level of decision-making autonomy within state-controlled and private companies operating in Belarus. The authors find that regulatory restrictions still allow for some enterprise-level autonomy in investment decisions, particularly for private companies, while state-controlled companies have to resort to using their informal connections to secure the ability to operate semi-autonomously. The findings thus challenge the thesis that the Belarusian regulatory system is extremely rigid, and shed light on management practices at company level.
