Abstract Kazakhstan’s Gross Domestic Product has increased at the remarkable average rate of 8% a year since 2000. The main engine of this growth has been the development of extractive industries, backed by the country’s immense natural wealth in oil, gas, coal, uranium and non-ferrous metals. According to the World Bank’s accounting, the total rent provided by oil, natural gas and coal, which had fallen at 13% of the GDP at its lowest in 1998, has fluctuated between a third and half of the GDP since 2005.
