The Caspian Basin has been a booming region since the late 1990s due to newoil discoveries, new pipelines that diversify the countries’ transport options, andworld oil prices that rose from below $10 in 1998 to $70 in 2006. This book analyses the experience of the Caspian countries during the oil boom. It is foundedon empirical studies, using either macroeconomic tools or an analysis of public budgets, or microeconometric analysis of household survey data or fieldwork in oil-producing regions. Moving from aggregated to disaggregated analysisand, in keeping with its emphasis on rigorous empirical analysis to the greatestextent possible, several chapters are written by specialists on the Caspian region.Whilst there is an emphasis on the economic consequences of the oil boom, theinterdisciplinary aspects of the phenomenon are also recognized. Overall, theanalysis is firmly rooted in the region, yet the empirical studies also provide a basis for drawing broader lessons about the effects of an oil boom.
