Abstract: 
We apply Suttons (1998) framework to compare the firm size distribution of two transition economies, Slovenia and Bulgaria with that of a market economy, Belgium. We find that there exists a minimum degree of inequality in the size of firms. In addition firm size inequality levels in Belgium and Slovenia are found to have comparable values while levels in Bulgaria remain considerably lower. Furthfirmore, we find that the industrial structure in a leading accession country is closest to the structure that we find in a market economy.
