Abstract

The Markovic government has clearly come down on the side of moving Yugoslavia towards a market economy. To succeed, the government must successfully privatize its so-called social capital, which represents about 85 percent of Yugoslavia’s capital stock. We have presented privatization principles and implementation criteria that will assist that privatization. Moreover, we strongly conclude that the most principled and practical privatization strategy should center on the privatization of Yugoslavia’s social security system. That privatization strategy will simultaneously allow for the rapid repair of Yugoslavia’s social-security system and the equitable privatization of that nation’s social capital.
