Abstract:     
Divestiture of public sector assets is only one part of a broad definition of privatization. A more comprehensive evaluation should include economic liberalization policies, and the development of the legal and institutional infrastructure for the private sector as well. We compare the background and recent economic reforms in Hungary and Egypt in these terms. We show that most of Egypt's privatization and much of Hungary's has come through the relaxation of government interference in the private sector. We conclude that divestiture of public enterprises should not be the exclusive, or even main, concern of government policy or external advice.
