The new private sector that develops spontaneously pays no taxes to government and is easy prey for the rackets of organized crime. The Role of Banks Banks are likely to play a crucial role in the corporate governance of firms undergoing privatization and restructuring and it has been argued that a bank−oriented system will develop rather than a market−oriented system (Aoki 1994; Berglöf, in this volume).

In practice, a high level of concentration has been observed. The initial fears of dispersed ownership were displaced as mutual funds sprang from the earth to collect the vouchers of the population, promising a tenfold return on the initial price of the voucher. In this way, more than half of the voucher points ended up in the hands of the largest thirteen investment funds (Kotrba and Svejnar 1994).
