The Viziers of Oz Come to Kansas

by Laurence on 10/18/2004 · 3 comments

Visitors from Ozbekiston are finding everything up to date in Kansas City, according to the Kansas City Star.

While studying and practicing economics in his home country of Uzbekistan, Yuliy Yusupov knew that theoretically America was the closest thing the world had to the ideal in liberal economics — an open economy driven by market forces.

But for the past week, Yusupov has been able to see capitalism, and all the things that make it work, first hand.

Yusupov, chief editor of Uzbekistan’s Economic Review magazine, and nine other business and government officials from that country have spent the last 10 days in the Kansas City area seeing America’s free-market economy up close. They leave Kansas City on Sunday.

Hmm..I know the man, Yuliy Yusupov. In my opinion, he is the best local economics professor the UWED has ever had. In fact, his ” History of economic thought” is still the main textbook for this discipoline at the UWED. Though, ( I dont want to be seen as gossiping but) I heard the man had to resign from the UWED when he refused to pass a certain student in his course.

Alisher, So he is very, very honest, too! At least he got a shopping trip to America, that is good. We say, “Honesty is the best policy.”

Exactly. That’s why I admire him.
