Why do we live poorly with thousands of tons of gold in bins

Foreign exchange reserves of Russia are breaking all records. The Central Bank already has more than 2000 tons of gold and hundreds of billions of dollars. At the same time, incomes of citizens, on the contrary, are inexorably decreasing. At least that's what most of our compatriots think. However, we turn to the numbers.


According to the Federal State Statistics Service, indeed, since 2014, there has been a decrease in citizens' incomes. But, firstly, the latter (even during the most difficult period for the country) did not exceed 6%, and secondly, this year it practically stopped. In addition, the number of registered cars in 2019 exceeded the mark of 44 million, which has never happened before. The same applies to the consumption of goods and services, as well as the volume of bank deposits of citizens. And this does not include income from the shadow sector.

However, the question remains open. Why, with such a powerful development of our country, we did not begin to live richer?

The thing is that over the past 20 years, Russia has managed to pay off the vast majority of debts (including completely paying off tsarist and Soviet ones), and has turned from a state living on credit into a country that costs its own means. To date, the external debt of the Russian Federation is maintained at around 15% of GDP and is fully secured by internal reserves.

As a result, it is precisely for the desire to give back what was earned to pay off the existing debt, and not to invest in development economics, citizens and criticize the current government. However, not everyone knows that the same policy at one time adhered to I. Stalin. True, at a time when after the war the country was in dire need of money, these measures more tangibly reflected in the pace of economic development.

So, we have completely paid off our debts. What will be the next step?

It is worth noting that in addition to getting rid of the “financial noose”, our country managed to reach a record low inflation rate. Now it’s the turn to “restart” the economy. And for this, national projects have already been invented. It was against them, contrary to the “advice” of the IMF, that it was decided in the future to channel surplus reserves.

To this end, the Central Bank began to lower the discount rate, the defense industry was untied from commercial banks and completely transferred to the public sector. In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Trade decided to ban the purchase of foreign goods for national projects.

In turn, all this will ensure a full load of our factories and enterprises, as well as an increase in the number of jobs and the growth of citizens' incomes. Thus, already in the near future, Russians will be able to feel an improvement in their standard of living without resorting to Rosstat data.

    "National projects" is a "declaration of intent", which has absolutely no "specific basis". That is, all these "national projects" are not clearly programmed point by point programs that would indicate: the parameters that need to be achieved, the steps that need to be completed to achieve, where will and how efforts will be made to achieve each stage, what resources, when , how much will be involved at each stage, who is responsible at each stage and at the end of the program, what means and methods are provided to protect the program in case of a change in situation, conjuncture, etc., what plan B and C, in which case, etc. Without it all these notorious "national projects" are the same, "empty dummy from promises" type to "203 .... year, we all will" heal ", and to" 205 .... we all will "heal", even better .... ", like the previous" programs "" to increase the well-being of Russian citizens by 2 times "," doubling GDP "," creating 25 million high-tech, well-paid jobs ", etc. The trouble is that all these" national projects " have specific funding and the “implementation of these projects” will be determined by criteria such as “budget utilization” and “achievement of specific indicators”. We learned to “master” the budget in such a way that only “feathers” fly away from it, and toward London, Seychelles, Cyprus and Mallorca, and the non-worthy Rosstat can achieve “specific indicators” without leaving the couch, there would be a specific indication and financing . So, there is no doubt that the "budget" of "national projects" will be successfully mastered (and given the appetites of the "masters", there is still not enough - they will have to pay extra from the pockets of the population), the indicators will be "achieved" according to Rosstat ("patients", “beggars” and “low-income people” will simply be counted “in a new way” and woo-a-la), but in reality, people will increasingly visit garbage dumps, crowd in queues in search of work, save on everything they can, settle in the anthills, etc.

    I clearly remember only 2 past national projects:
    1) Housing for the military was built, instead of the 3 promised years, 15 years.
    2) The Internet in transport died quietly 2 years ago. Wi-fi connection remained in the 1st car out of 50, if beyond the MKAD ....

    So that someone lived richly, the rest should live poorly ...

      Only one "national project" will actually be carried out (already being implemented) (it is one, in fact, that exists in reality, all other "national projects" - "tinsel" - "smoke screen", designed to hide this one from the population and the public , the real "project") - "the creation of an electronic-digital concentration camp for the population" - there it is already clearly laid out in stages and points, what, how, and who will do it.

        Rarely do you put advantages, but there is nothing to argue with. And this, apparently, because at the forefront of this development of the "digital concentration camp" are those who are not interested in either the country's development, or national projects, as such, etc., but exclusively their own incomes - Gref, Chubais and Co.
        Also, after reading the headline, I immediately remembered about the “bins of the Motherland” in the USSR, to which something also always came in large numbers, it was stored there, we were very proud of everything, but somehow nothing arrived on the shelves, regardless of the contents of these the most "bins" ...
        In general, everything is somehow strange in the world, it seems to be taught one thing, but everything happens differently. It seems like it’s better not to take debts, but if you take it, you have to give it back, but at the same time those who don’t do this are the best people, and both the people and the state ... The vast majority of large businessmen are all in debt and credit, whoever you ask ... All developed Western countries have such public debts that it is almost impossible to give someone back to someone, and no one is particularly "scratched" about this. Well, where are the rules of a market economy that they themselves came up with? Or is it like a car with a flasher for those who come up with laws, but at the same time they themselves do not apply to them? ...

          In fact, even Marx and Engels, and then Lenin answered these questions quite specifically. For example, Marx wrote that the classical laws of capitalism, progressively affecting the development of society, work only under one condition - in conditions of FREE COMPETITION. Marx notes that a “market economy” only works until capitalists unite and their activities and pricing policies are coordinated among themselves, as well as capitalists divide markets into “zones of influence” - as soon as this happens, a capitalist “mafia” is formed which usurps economic power and begins to slow down the development of the economy and society, using the resources of society for its enrichment and reproduction, through economic dictatorship, the purchase of politicians, governments, etc. Marx wrote, about capitalism in any case will lead to the destruction of free competition in countries due to the fact that capitalist companies are developing unevenly and some of them will accumulate the necessary capital and power faster than others, merge with politicians and be able to dictate their conditions to others, thereby destroying the principle of "free competition. " Lenin developed this in his theses on "world imperialism", united in a single camp, with a single goal - the enslavement of the whole world, putting all governments under its influence, etc., in the name of achieving political and economic domination.

            Wonderful. But they also said that all this would lead to a world revolution. That is, this time, based on the thoughts of the pillars of communist doctrine, this very revolution expects what we call the "consolidated West?" And now we will observe all this, how they looked at us in 1917? smile Maybe it will work out? wink

              Yes. "The world revolution will be," just not quite the same as it was predicted by the classics of Marxist-Leninist philosophy in their time. Lenin, developing the thesis of "revolution in one country", wrote that for a revolutionary situation there must be necessary and sufficient conditions, and he listed them. And he came to the conclusion that only Russia possesses all of them fully for that period because of the peculiarities of its development and the current situation in the world. In addition, in his subsequent (last) works, he generally wrote that due to the development of technologies and changes in the class composition in the countries of the world, a “revolution” in society and a political system can come along with a “technological revolution”, changing one formation to another armed, but economically. Now we are just observing this. Coming into the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology is fraught with the threat of destroying the entire classical world order, working for many hundreds of years, in terms of financial turnover, decision-making, control and management of society, etc. That is, crypto and blockchain are the current "revolutionaries" who will lead to a "world revolution". The world oligarchy has already understood this threat and has begun to stir - for example, decisions to ban, crypto control and restrict blockchain technologies are feverishly pushing in all countries (look at what prohibitive fuss started with Libro .....) ... ..

                Well, in the days of Lenin and Marx, there were a lot of things that are now, and these are not only cryptocurrencies. But in general, in this area, it is definitely impossible to refuse your sanity. Although I personally have 2 questions:
                1) what prevents the “world oligarchy” from controlling or even “saddling” cryptocurrencies, etc., because the network, as such, with which it works, is still quite controlled by a fairly narrow circle of people;
                2) in this case, the behavior of the Russian authorities is simply a backward economic policy or vice versa, foresight and the right steps towards the future?

          This is from the same series as “pay all taxes and live in peace”, but there’s no answer to the next question that arises from this, and what then to live in peace with. And it’s not very much someone is already worried about whether you can then live normally and implement any of your own plans or not. The main thing is that you need to pay in full, regularly and in a timely manner.

    Can I find out where to get my own goods? And here we have most of the goods here are packed from foreign components - starting with milk and ending with everything else. For our "business" label of the domestic nameplate on imported goods already allows you to bypass all barriers and duties. Who will control all this? And How?

      I always said and say - there are always answers to all questions, and all this has already been done more than once, and if you look into your own story, you will immediately find answers to: "why ?, how ?, what? And what to do?" . Well, for example, how to deal with the notorious "crisis" and "impoverishment" - there is an answer in very recent history - see how the government of Primakov, Maslyukov and Gerashchenko pulled Russia out of a deep priest during the present (and not invented as it is now - this is a crisis with hundreds of billions of dollars in different capsules? Yes, do not tell my slippers) crisis. Now about where to get "our own" goods - look at how the Soviet government saturated the market during the NEP and how the market was saturated in the 90s with a total deficit of everything - here's the answer. For a "local consumer" who cannot produce a large number of products, small private owners are important, it is important to sell products simply, without bureaucratic troubles in small private and small wholesale markets, and in free markets with a minimum of taxes, and even better, just by buying how a cheaper patent is possible. What has been done in Russia? And in Russia under the brand of “optimization”, “fight against counterfeit”, “fight for cleanliness”, etc., private markets, small wholesale markets, stalls, spontaneous “grandmother's” markets, etc., that is, for the sake of “large networks "and" point developers "destroyed all small retail trade, which is precisely based economically on the" domestic producer "and" free competition ". Take away the “Sobyanins”, return it all and get the explosive nature of local food production.

        Do not bullshit ... all the small wholesale markets were under bandits. And all of them were “businessmen” (although what kind of businessman from a shuttle trap? Hucksters are stupid) they dragged goods from anywhere - all rubbish to weight from China and Turkey, abreks carried meat from large farms with gazelles, and local small producers could not enter the market with their pigs break out of the word in any way! They just threw out the meat as a result! I saw it with my own eyes! What do you praise lawlessness as the highest form of solving any economic problems ?? There are no simple solutions, remember, they are all exhausted - there are no more safety reserves from the USSR! But this government does not have its own economic strategy. You need to start from scratch. And for this there is no desire at the top, nothing - you need to educate, first of all, new cadres with new thinking, and not the VESh mantras - production workers and statesmen, and not effective managers. And to build another control system - the current one - is a serpent devouring its tail.

          But to bring "out of the bandits" what - in any way? Or don’t you understand in Russia - where are the “bandits” and where are the same “bandits, but with epaulets” and “in power” (judging by the “billion-dollar garage stash”, it is) or the million-strong “Rosguard” only for in order to disperse those dissatisfied with paper cups? In the 90s there was a spontaneous saturation of the market, and the state was removed from its full regulation. It is clear that if the state leaves, then it is immediately replaced by others - corrupt cops and bandits. I worked for some time in Vietnam and I was struck there by the explosive growth of trade, small private b znesa - became interested in what taxes they pay - it turned out - NO. The state takes taxes only from large businesses and from Western companies engaged in foreign trade. In addition, state-owned companies earn money to the state, and small businesses and private traders do not pay anything to the state, it’s enough that the people are busy and feed themselves. ”The bandits trying to control the business there, too, were found, as without it, only the authorities didn’t stand on ceremony there - the captured racket-roofers, right there, in the ditch, and they shot, without trial or investigation - now there are no people who want to do this there. Here is the approach, why is it bad? And in Russia, now the authorities are karmic for every person, they are trying in different ways to erase every "unaccounted" penny, increase the fiscal burden, create bureaucratic obstacles and impossible obligations for business, moreover freeing people close to power from the business, shifting losses from activities similar persons on the shoulders of all other entrepreneurs and the people as a whole. What to start from scratch? “To steal from scratch?” “To pick up new thieves not yet fed up?” “To invite Varangians?” Or to take and use the same “Vietnamese” or “Singaporean” methods?

            This is true, an example with prices for gas, diz. fuel, kerosene and other petroleum products. Well, really, it was impossible to solve the problem of some losses of the oligarchs in the foreign market not at the expense of the pockets of the Russian population, but at the expense of other resources. This could have been done, but with the tacit consent of the authorities, prices have actually risen to the level of Europe and the USA, but only the standard of living and income of the vast majority of average Russians do not reach the standard of living of the average European or American. But then how is it possible to equalize retail prices of the external and internal market when selling petroleum products ???

            ... before writing the answer below, I didn’t read this entire controversy, so I’ll add more: I won’t lie, I don’t know how it is in Vietnam, but in states - with this approach to taxation, there are usually no social payments - pensions, benefits, etc., or they are simply minimal. That is, the Russian population is unlikely to be happy with this option - it is pure capitalism, not a social state. As for the hard showdown with bandits - I personally am also completely in favor and I am sure that this would help. BUT ... again this is a "but" - who is the first to start yelling about this? Those who are now criticizing the government are liberals, etc. They’ll put a couple of boys-athletes, a squeal will rise and that’s all ... the tough fight against crime will end. This is one side. And the second - as in the 90s, the bandits will wet the cops, and they will turn into roofers ... we have such a country ... not Switzerland, after all ...
            About obstacles for business and bureaucracy I agree. But the fact that the state is reaching into the pocket of citizens is, of course, that citizens do not like, of course. But these are the same citizens who always themselves require something from this very state ...
            It is necessary to deal with taxes and corporate financing, this is a fact, but this is a long conversation. And what we have is, again, the legacy of the liberalism of the 90s ... it’s necessary to decide, but you also don’t decide at once ...

        Here I do not quite agree. There is some truth. But on the other hand, the so-called "grandmother" markets immediately take their hands not once grandmothers, but completely different structures. How it all works - I know well from the 90s; and this immediately begins to influence the process, including pricing. Criminal schemes and structures immediately grow. The second problem is that the origin and quality of goods in such a "free market" also often raises questions. And this is also from personal experience. About the dirt and mess that Sobyanin referred to, I am silent.
        This scheme partially works in Europe, for example. But, firstly, in the framework of a completely different mentality and organization, and secondly, in our time, this way of trading still does not cover all the needs of the population, we still do not live in the Middle Ages ...

        People are shot regularly in China, but the situation is not really improving. Since every crook thinks that they will not catch him, and not about that - they will shoot him or put him in prison. Here, I think, the point is tight control and the inevitability of punishment. It doesn’t matter - 15 years or shooting. And this inevitability everyone should feel with his own neck every second! Like under Stalin.

      ... what prevents the "world oligarchy" from controlling or even "saddling" cryptocurrencies, etc., because the network, as such, with which it works, is still quite controlled by a fairly narrow circle of people.

      Quite right, the main threat of the “blockchain revolution” is that having left the control of the “classical” one, we will come under the control of the other - those who contain information networks. However, there are solutions - “quantum computer”, “neural networks”, “photon networks”, “peer-to-peer networks”, “quantum encryption” (in the end, “fidonet” existed and still exists, and it is evolving). And in any case, this technology is developing rapidly and there is room for where and in what directions to “move”, in contrast to the schemes of the existence of modern society that have come to a standstill completely controlled by oligarchs. On the threshold of a new world - I don’t know what it will be like, but to be honest, it’s just breathtaking from the possibilities. yes
      PS If we talk about the "behavior of the Russian authorities", then .... but what do you want from the "gebists-siloviks" and their hangers-on, who are accustomed to only "take away", "share" and "hide", as well as from them " advisers from the economic bloc who have completed short 3-month courses in management and economics at Columbia and Yale (paid for by Soros and the CIA)? wink

        - I may not be very good at this, but it still works through some kind of network, computers work on operating systems, and that’s all, at least for the time being, it’s quite possible to block, limit or influence them work. And I have such a suspicion that those who

        contains information networks

        these are precisely those against whom it is necessary to make a revolution ... I’m not to mention that all networks are powered by electricity, and it is certainly tightly controlled. With this how?
