Uzbekistan : Welfare Impact of Slow Transition


  • Pomfret, R
  • Anderson, K-H


Uzbekistan is typically seen as one of the slowest reformers among the countries in transition from central planning to a market-oriented economy. This paper evaluates the walfare impact of gradual transition in Uzbekistan, asking whether it has avoided the short-term disruption associated with more rapid transition while remaining on course for long-term economic success.
