Turkmenistan is on the verge of an economic catastrophe due to hyperinflation and food shortages. The country has consistently ranked low on transparency, corruption and human rights as it stagnates under the nearly thirty years of dictatorship of Saparmurat Niyazow and Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow respectively . The government are the only ones with the power to change anything in this very isolationist country, and they are also thought to be behind the economic downturn of the country, having mismanaged hydrocarbon revenues. The government of Berdimuhamedow could start by carrying out basic reforms, as the current authoritarian government are so strict in controlling freedom of movement and access to information that Turkmen citizens in the worst hit regions cannot even move to seek work in other areas. Do you think that corrupt governments are likley to have an economic crisis is there are no reforms ?
