It is quite hard to label yesterday’s guest lecture as a traditional one WIUT previously organized. The engagement of students, openness of the speaker and the atmosphere made this event even more excitnig. This draw audience to feel admiration for a nation hero.The person who shared his experinece with WIUT students was Shakhram Giyasov, the welterweight boxer who won Uzbek, Asian and World Championships in 2017 as well as silver medal of Olympic Games in 2016 held in Rio da Janeiro.

The room was full of students but they were ready to stay just to listen to his stories and to ask the questions as if it was a press conference organized only for WIUT students.

The boxer answered all the questions related to any sphere of his sport and private life. He mentioned that there is always great responsibility before every match as the “easy-to-win” rivals do not exist. Shakhram Giyasov proudly stated that he had only two coaches in his boxing career and ready to accept the pain of the defeat if the rival is better.

Besides he shared the thoughts on women boxing saying that he was against it for many years thinking of girls as fragile creatures for this sport, traumas and the fight itself. However after having discussions with female boxers he changed his attitude. Since in general the aspirations for male and female boxers were the similar such as seeing the flag and singing the anthem of Uzbekistan, proving that boxing school of the country is the best in the world and demonstrating equal opportunities for everyone in sport.

WIUT supports determination, self-improvement and dedication of its students and organization of similar meetings will only contribute to this.

Abstract 

The geographic distance between a household and financial institutions may constitute a significant obstacle to achieving the benefits of modern financial institutions. We measure the impact of distance-related access to microcredits in Uzbekistan. Residents living closer to microfinance institutions are propensity score matched to those further away using both household and village characteristics. Households located nearer to microfinance institutions have larger businesses in terms of income, profits and employees than similar households located further away. In addition, they spend more on most forms of consumption and have greater savings.

Abstract

Although strategy research established strong links between intangible assets and firm performance, studies usually focus on intangible assets possessed by the focal firm (FIAs). Unlike previous studies, this paper focuses on the intangible assets possessed by the (multiple) organization(s) that own the focal firm (OIAs). We investigate the differences in the effectiveness of FIAs and OIAs in enhancing firm performance. We also examine how variations in institutional development across 23 countries influence 1) the usefulness of FIAs and OIAs 2) complementarities between these assets and 3) the advantages of being owned by multiple organizations (vis-à-vis a single owner). We show that institutional development affects differently the competitive advantages that FIAs and OIAs offer to the focal firm. Furthermore, the intangible assets of multiple owners provide advantages over those of single owners in enhancing firm performance, and these advantages are stronger in institutionally more developed countries.

Abstract

Over the past five decades, “economics of language” or “language economics” branch has emerged as a discipline analyzing resource allocation in modern societies. How and why do earnings differ between individuals with different language skills? This question is the most interesting empirical question in language economics today. In this paper, I investigate the relationship between individuals’ language skills and wages in three countries of Central Asia. The multiethnic structure of the Central Asian region makes it unique laboratory for analyzing returns to language skills among different language families. I contribute to existing literature by using distance between languages to capture language family effect on earnings. I find earnings premium for individuals with Russian language skills whose language distance between mother tongue and official language is high.
