Synopsis: This is the one of lectures within the series on the world
financial crisis. The economic consequences of the crisis will be
considered, using neighboring Kazakhstan as a case study. Before the crisis,
Kazakhstan's economic development model was recognized as one of the best,
not only in the post-Soviet area, but also among other developing countries.
Nevertheless, Kazakhstan was among the first countries to encounter the
challenges of the crisis. During the presentation, the speaker will review
the results of research on the impact of the world financial crisis on the
development of Kazakhstan's economy, consider some of the sectors of its
economy that have been most severely affected, and analyze the causes of its
economic slowdown. At the end of the presentation, the speaker will try to
draw some lessons from the mistakes that Kazakhstan's government made at the
beginning of the crisis and in the course of its evolution.
