After examining the reforms themselves, the study analyzes their impact on the economic freedom of the average Pakistani. Attention is then focused on reforms in the countrys major economic sectors: manufacturing, agriculture, finance, transport, and telecommunications. Of particular importance is an examination of the benefits likely to stem from the countrys privatization program. The study concludes with a series of policy simulations to the year 2000. Of unique interest to scholars and policymakers is that these reforms have been implemented in an Islamic setting.
