This chapter offers a blow-by-blow assessment of the economic reforms of the 1990s given by Grigory Yavlinsky in mid-2002. He presents a strong pro-Western, liberal, and reformist stance but nonetheless opposes what he perceives as the extreme pro-market thrust of the Yeltsin team in favor of a social democratic approach. Yavlinsky is the best known of the liberal academic economists who became involved in Russia's economic reform. He was a prominent figure in economic reform debates, including policy measures enacted under Nemtsov in the Nizhny Novgorod region and a number of tax budget and sectoral reforms. Yavlinsky has made his mark as the permanent oppositionist of Russian politics as the founder of the opposition Yabloko group, being twice a presidential candidate, and a fierce critic of the Yeltsin reforms.

Keywords:   Yeltsin, Grigory Yavlinsky, Nemtsov, tax budget, sectoral reforms, economic reform
