I am a friend of Kazakhstan: I have felt the warm embrace of its people visiting and living in the U.S., been enchanted by the beauty (and utter coolness!) of its culture, astonished by its history, and marveled at folks who have evolved from nomadic life to space competency in decades rather than centuries. Unlike so many other nations in the post-Soviet space, Kazakhstan’s exit from ‘third worldom’ is assured, thanks in large measure to some excellent choices made by its leadership. There is one more vital choice on the horizon. It is a choice that can literally propel Kazakhstan into the first world in two generations: a clear path into the future.
