About this book


The collapse of the centrally planned systems of the former Soviet Union undoubtedly stands out as one of the most important global events of the twentieth century. The transformation from a centralized economic system to a market system created major opportunities for Western corporations to enter markets that had formerly been closed to them. In this book E.K.Dosmukhamedov employs a distinctive approach to the study of post-communist transition by analyzing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from a political, legal and economic standpoint. Kazakhstan, the second largest country of the former USSR, is used as a case study to illustrate the role of FDI in restructuring the economy of the former Soviet Union countries in the Post-Communist era.
