Abstract
The countries of Central Asia are now entering into a new stage of their development when labor productivity becomes the main driving force of economic growth. Productivity growth is impossible without large-scale use of modern technologies – the area where all countries of the region have large untapped reserves. Fiscal policy seems to be one of the most powerful components of government economic policy capable to foster technological modernisation. The lecture will provide an overview of public finances (government budget revenue, expenditure and deficit) and analyze these governments’ fiscal policies and what these policies can do for technological development.
