Firm Centred Perspectives
Edited by Mehmet Demirbag and Geoffrey Wood
Chapter 2: Uzbekistan: autocracy, development and international firms
This chapter seeks to develop understanding of both transitional peripheral economies and the consequences of clan-based authoritarianism, through looking more closely at the type of capitalism that has emerged in Central Asia, the dominant growth regime and the type of firm-level practices associated with this, focusing in particular on the case of Uzbekistan. The chapter examines why the Uzbek government promoted a narrative of antiquarianism, which may be defined as the promotion of a particular period of past glory, both as a core feature of national identity and as the basis for present and future life. The chapter also highlights the pattern of foreign direct investment in Uzbekistan and draws out the implications for foreign investors in the country.
