My friend Khrystyna invited me to speak to her economics class. They’re focused on international marketing. She asked me to do a brief cultural comparison between Ukraine and the U.S. Since culture is a broad term, I asked for specifics, and she suggested I compare whatever interests me.
I’m really glad she talked me into lecturing. It was invigorating. There was a lively discussion afterward and I made many points which are close to my heart — the actual “social contribution” of entrepreneurs, Sweden’s welfare state, a true free trade agreement can be written on a napkin, high prices as a market signal.
Here is my presentation. As it says on the about page, my views are my own and not those of any other person or organization.
