Beschreibung

By introducing a new national currency in November 1993, the Republic of Kazakstan took a decisive step towards establishing its political and economic independence. In the following years, Kazakstan made great efforts to lay the institutional foundation for econonmic policy in line with a free market system. The cooperation between Kazak experts and independent international advisors such as the group of German econonmists under the leadership of Lutz Hoffmann played an important role for the Kazak government in choosing the most effective concepts and instruments for economic policy. Thus, the main topic of this book is the discussion of the macroeconomic problems during the first years of transition and the role of international financial institutions, in particular the International Monetary Fund.

The topics are dealt with in a new form of presentation, collecting the papers of the advisory group in chronological order.

Heiner Flassbeck arbeitet seit 2000 bei der United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Genf, seit August 2003 ist er dort Direktor der Division on Globalization and Development Strategies. 1998 1999 Staatssekretär im Bundesministerium für Finanzen. Im März 2005 Ernennung zum Honorarprofessor an der Universität Hamburg.

Dr. Peter Bofinger ist Universitätsprofessor für Geldpolitik und internationale Wirtschaftsbeziehungen an der Universität Würzburg. Im März 2004 wurde er in den Sachverständigenrat berufen, ein Gremium (auch bekannt unter dem Namen 'Die fünf Wirtschaftsweisen'), dass durch seinen jährlichen Bericht zur gesamtwirtschaftlichen Situation der Bundesrepublik viel Einfluss auf die Politik hat.

Dr. Lutz Hoffmann ist langjährig in der Lehre und Examensvorbereitung für Wirtschafts- und Jurastudenten tätig.
