Business-Government Relations, Networks and Institutional Change: Central and Eastern Europe after the Fall of Communism

Abstract:

This paper examines the variation in business-government relations across the more advanced transition countries, which joined the EU in 2004. While many observers have noted great similarities among them – notably their ’dependent nature’ of their capitalist systems (King 2007, Nölke and Vliegenthart 2009) or the seeming paradox of weak organisations representing business interests (such as business associations), yet simultaneously great business influence over politics (e.g. Jasiecki 2002) – this paper focuses on differences within this group of countries. I will show that distinct patterns of business-government relations emerged in the 1990s, which correspond quite well to an expanded version of the Varieties of Capitalism (VoC) framework (Hall and Soskice 2001). In this paper, I develop a model of network-promotion and network-disruption to account for the origins of different systems of business-government relations in transition periods. I test this model both by examining cross-country data and by discussing a number of case studies, notably Estonia, Slovenia, Hungary and the Czech Republic. This paper concludes by relating the findings to the growing literature on the origins of different political economies (Streeck and Yamamura 2001; Martin and Thelen 2008; Cusack et al. 2007).
