Abstract:The two essential objectives of the program of the coup of 19-11-1968 were: recoupment of public finances and reorganization of comrnercial structures. In the 'Declaration to the Nation' Keita's successors set these two goals and stated their determination to preserve the values of Keita's period. The State's sector of the economy was therefore to be maintained and the State economic enterprises were to retain their dominant position. However, greater emphasis was to be given to the mixed-capital sector, in which Malian State capital would be associated with foreign capital, and to the private sector, which would utilize both traditional and modern forms. It has been thought undesirable to adopt a policy of constitutional democracy and economic laissez faire. This study determines the extent to which Mali's new leadership has taken steps in law to implement this new policy in the following parts: The end of a monopoly party - Reverting to Capitalism - The State sector - Taxation - The social fabric Conclusion.
