The article discusses the problems of the successes and the failures of Georgia’s post-revolutionary economic development. Amongst the positive results, the significant increase of national budget revenues and the overcoming of the energy crises should be emphasized. At the same time, mistakes in terms of both the building of a democratic state and economic policy were made. Making the judiciary an appendage to the General Prosecutor’s Office and the executive branch, the government’s control of the media and its defiance of property rights, are among the most serious errors of Georgia’s post-revolutionary development.
