Other nations are emerging from economic under-development. For now, those nations don't have a substantial demand for large public firms. Private financing, bank financing, and retained earnings can implement the technologies available for their largest firms. For some of the poorest, the institutional environment is so degraded that whether the political environment favours public firms never enters into the equation because the institutional infrastructure could not support the fully public firm.
