dc.description.abstract The survey results presented in this paper provide evidence that economic inequality in Kazakhstan runs along the ethnic and language boundaries. Proficiency in Russian provides economic advantages while proficiency in Kazakh only seems to act as a economic penalty. However, access to a standard prestige-bearing variety of Russian is restricted – Russian is evidently a new “bourgeois resource” (Blommaert 2003). This phenomenon highlights the problem of current language policy – promotion of Kazakh a language of education perpetuates pre-existing social equality in modern Kazakhstan society. en_US
