The Algerian economy has undergone significant restructuring and reform since the 1980s.Indeed, although the country has a degree of fiscal stability – due in large part to oil revenues – the Algerian economy remains sluggish.As long as politics and the economy are so inextricably linked in Algeria, obstacles to change will remain. The Algerian government is obsessed with the domination of all levers of power including the economy, which inevitably precludes them from making the right choices in terms of economic development, liberalization and growth. On a political level, the Algerian regime has shielded itself from the emergence of competing political forces and from autonomous civil society through the outright ban on all political activity occurring outside state apparatuses.
