On May 22, an open lecture of the famous Russian economist, political scientist, TV and radio host Mikhail L. Khazin was held at Altai State University.

Opening the meeting, the Director of the International Institute of Economics, Management and Information Systems at Altai State University Stepan I. Mezhov noted that the arrival of such a important person is a significant event.

“Mikhail Khazin’s publications, his views and philosophy are known to the majority and do not need a special presentation. They are very interesting, perhaps controversial in some ways, but sometimes events in our country and the world are anticipated. For example, academician Sergei Glazyev named Mikhail Khazin as one of those who, long before the global economic crisis that began in 2008, predicted it in his works,” S.I. Mezhov said. “The disappearance of the middle class, the limit of purchasing power, excessive stimulation of demand, the uncontrolled mission of the dollar – all this leads to negative aspects in the economy. These and many other questions of the world economy, considered in the works of Mikhail L. Khazin, are discussed in the framework of the open lecture and in the question-and-answer session.

During the lecture, Mikhail L. Khazin suggested that students, who made up the majority of the meeting participants, talked about economics, since, according to Khazin, it was impossible to understand the issues of professional activity during the period of study at the university. It would take at least 15-20 years. Using examples from his own life, and historical facts, he explained a number of economic concepts, and also advised young people to always seek answers to emerging questions, in order to study not only scientific disciplines, but also knowledge of life itself.
