Kazakhstan has made considerable progress in shifting from command to a market economy. The
transition process towards a “market economy was expected to enhance the economic
performance” of the country which in turn was anticipated to uplift the life of a common man. This study, therefore,
aims“ to examine the impact of economic freedom on economic growth” of Kazakhstan. The results indicate that
though the reform process of Kazakhstan is in a transition phase, yet economic freedom has contributed positively“
towards the economic growth” of the country.“The results also indicate that in sub-indicators of economic freedom,
monetary freedom” and protection of property right have contributed to the growth of Kazakhstans economy
while an increase in government size impedes the economic growth of the country."
