According to Tulepov , the root of the crisis in Kazakhstan is a violation of one of the main principles of monetary economics - the free market work: in particular, the State pressure in the market pricing of credit resources in order to lower interest rates of placement. As we can see, this is the beginning of deterioration in the financial condition of the banking sector, as well as a substantial and rapid increase in money supply in the economy, which led to high inflation, do not adequately control which has caused all the subsequent problems.
At a time when it became obvious that the banking sector in Kazakhstan has become one of the drivers of the economy, increasingly began to appear on the opinion of the need to lower interest rates on credit resources to accelerate economic growth. Although the administrative drop in prices for loans should have been cause a reduction in profitability and care of the players from the market, the government is not worried, because it was thought that for the fifteen millionth of the country there are three dozen (profitable) banks is more than sufficient.

Moreover the financial sector of Kazakhstan was the biggest borrower in structure of the government external debt. The growth strategy of most Kazakh banks in that time was simple: they raised cheap short-term debt on European capital markets denominated in Euro and dollars, and used the funds to provide credit to the growing customer base in Kazakhstan at a much higher interest rate.
