Show Summary Details


As an economist and first deputy minister, Davaadorjiin Ganbold was eager for the involvement of the IMF, the ADB, and the World Bank. The IMF and the ADB sent groups to study the Mongolian economy and to interview Ganbold and other, like-minded economists. Ganbold and the ADB economists offered a useful description of Mongolia's economic problems as of 1991 and had a specific prescription for its ills: commercialization and privatization, which, they believed, would yield a more efficient system than a planned economy. The more rapid the privatization, the better it would be for the economy.

Keywords: Davaadorjiin Ganbold; IMF; World Bank; ADB economists; commercialization
