Voucher privatization

Privatization voucher used in Czechoslovakia

Voucher privatization is a privatization method where citizens are given or can inexpensively buy a book of vouchers that represent potential shares in any state-owned company. Voucher privatization has mainly been used in the early to mid-1990s in the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe - countries such as Russia, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Czechoslovakia.
