The US was surprised by the state of the Russian economy after the pandemic


Russia is experiencing less painful pandemic and caused by it economic recession than other countries in the world. According to Bloomberg experts, the Russian economy turned out to be more resilient to the challenges associated with COVID-19, due to the refusal of the authorities to introduce a lockdown in the second half of last year.


In 2020, the rate of decline in Russian GDP reached 3,1 percent, which is less than the expected figure of 3,7 percent. The most painful thing for the Russian economy was the impact of the coronavirus in the first half of 2020, when self-isolation measures were introduced. The decline in world oil prices also negatively affected the lives of Russians.

According to the economists of the American edition, the Russian economy over the past year will decrease by half as much as in the EU, where the drop in gross domestic product will be 7,3 percent. Meanwhile, this year, the Russian economy could grow by 3 percent.

Earlier, analysts analyzed 17 countries of the world by 11 financial and economic indicators, including the volume of foreign exchange reserves, forecasts for the interest rate and the level of GDP. According to the research results, Russia took the second place.

US experts were surprised to note the very high investment position of Russia, which reached 30 percent, the volume of foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Central Bank - 587,1 billion dollars, as well as the relatively low 14 percent domestic public debt. In addition, the underestimation of the Russian ruble, which has a large resource for strengthening, is a positive factor.

    Strange conclusions. Too optimistic. Russia is holding up pretty well, but this is not a reason for much joy.
    Israel believes that its economy is in a difficult situation despite the fact that foreign exchange reserves have grown in 2020 from 125 billion to 173 billion dollars, and investment positions are higher than Russian ones.

      Even if Israel rakes up all the world's finances, it will still whine that it is in a grave crisis. This is a national character trait. Constantly cry so that no one came to dispossess.

    You can not harm what is not laughing Maksimka is also remembered all over the world who said that he would tear the Russian economy to pieces. But I couldn't, I couldn't find any economy laughing I did not find what could be torn to shreds.

      According to the research, Russia took second place.

      Well, if Russia has "no ekonomika" then in other countries that according to Bloomberg's rating are located below Russia, things are even worse. There, according to your logic, there are no states as such, just territory. It turns out that only one country has an economy, the one that is higher than Russia in the rating. laughing good The second place is an excellent result. It is quite possible to be proud of the president.

        Well, it depends on what to look at. If the amount received from the sale of resources, then yes. The West calls Russia our gas station. And if you look at the manufactured products, then ...

    GDP - in simple terms, this is everything that was produced in the country for a year. Usually expressed in dollars
    You will calculate the changed cost of goods and services and everything will fall into place.

    The US was surprised by the state of the Russian economy after the pandemic

    - What kind of sentiment ??? - The Americans suddenly decided ... - do something nice for Russia ... with your own words ... - to do something nice for Russia ... - To express gratitude to Russia for the fact that Russia did not spare its gold to support the American dollar. .. - That's all there is to it ... - they say, always do it ... - we count on you ...
    - And how much of its gold did Russia export in 2020 ???

    US experts were surprised to note the very high investment position of Russia, which reached 30 percent, the volume of foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Central Bank - 587,1 billion dollars, as well as the relatively low 14 percent domestic public debt. In addition, the underestimation of the Russian ruble, which has a large resource for strengthening, is a positive factor.

    - Damn, yes personally I have already written that investors are investing cheap dollars; but they acquire expensive Russian assets ... then you can always take your "cheap" invested dollars and + plus on top of this get a profit margin for the sold (already at a new expensive price) ... - expensive Russian assets ... - Here and that's it ...

    In addition, the undervaluation of the Russian ruble is a positive factor.

    - Hello ... - this is what we arrived ...
    - It turns out that our Russian man in the street for their hard-earned "expensive rubles" bought food, everything needed at the price of a "cheap ruble" ... - instead of buying much more goods (or less) for these "expensive rubles" ... -Our Russian citizen, paying in "expensive rubles", received goods in the amount represented by "cheap rubles" ... - It's like paying with dollars ... -10, 20,30 dollars, etc. for the goods ... - the cost of which (for the same product), respectively ...- 10, 20, 30 rubles ... - that is, it's like ...-. came to a simple ordinary Russian grocery store and ... and for a product that costs 10 rubles ... - gave 10 dollars ...
    - That's the case ...

    I am not an economist, but why are the Western sanctions not working in full against Russia?
    Why did the fall of the Western economies not affect the Russian economy?
    Why did the fall in oil and gas prices not affect the sharp decline in the economy and the Russian ruble?
    Maybe because all estimates of the economy were initially underestimated like the ruble itself?
    They only noticed and commented on what was beneficial and broadcast what suited them at that time. But the virus confused all the cards with them? It has long been known that even Spain has a higher GDP (not a fact), but in fact it does not give them anything (the Spaniards). So the sadness has come!

      The dollar for the year by ten rubles, and the euro has risen by twenty. Isn't it harsh?

    Here's an accident for you in Zamoskvorechye,
    Three were taken to bury one,
    Everyone, including the driver, was injured
    Only the one in the coffin - nothing.


    Vysotsky on the Russian economy. Chickens are counted in the fall, and the results should be summed up after the epidemic.
