A book about how the Latvian SSR "fed the whole Union" was published in Latvia

131
Informational portal Delphi Publishes excerpts from the next “economic and analytical” work of the Latvian “experts” who decided to calculate how much the Latvian SSR earned during its existence and how much “gave to Moscow”. The book in question is called “History national economy of Latvia ". It is noted that this publication is positioned as "the largest research project since the beginning of 90-s."


A book about how the Latvian SSR "fed the whole Union" was published in Latvia


The main author of the “labor” is the rector of the Vidzeme High School Gatis Krumins.

In the course of numerous mental operations and the study of documents that benefit only the current Latvian authorities, the authors of the book announced that in the period from 1960 to 1985 the Latvian SSR paid 28,5 billion rubles to the All-Union budget, and received from Moscow only 15,5. The authors claim:

The net profit of the Soviet budget from the exploitation of the Latvian economy amounted to 13 billion rubles.


At the same time, it is added that in the 40s and 50s, the all-union budget completely “took” from Latvia about 75% of all revenues.

The authors report that the Latvian economy for decades in the USSR economy showed steady growth, and Moscow "used this and all the funds received by Riga as a result of the growth actually removed the Latvian SSR from the economy".

From book:
The Latvian budget largely lost its independence and was part of the USSR budget, which created the illusion of supposedly feeding the Latvian economy from the All-Union budget. Despite this, Latvia was able to become the most economically developed republic of the Soviet Union, ensuring the highest GDP growth.


Created an illusion? If so, why are things bad now in independent Latvia with industrial growth? Where is even the "illusion"? ..

Such conclusions clearly appealed to the customers of the “opus” about how the Latvian SSR “fed the whole Union”, but in fact the things stated in the book do not hold water. It does not stand up, if only because the main thing is not taken into account: from where did the Latvian SSR receive gigantic investments in the creation of a wide network of infrastructure and a number of large industrial enterprises, including automotive enterprises, factories for the production of electronics, perfumery, fish, meat and canned milk , ports, stations, air harbors?

The authors of the book are trying to present information in such a way as if the provincial capital at the time of the 40-s, Latvia created all this with some of its own funds, and then its economy began to grow ...

The book is aimed at another attempt to present the Soviet period in the life of the republic only from a negative position, but the attempt once again looks extremely unprofessional.

            What do you dislike about the Strugatsky fiction? They condemned Nazism. And about the Latvian miracle (as in Japan after the Second World War I do not know). If it was, then the Latvians should be ahead of the rest.

          Well, not everyone fell down and not only the “cripples” remained. But the new bill on granting citizenship of the Russian Federation has long matured and with its adoption, I think, many of the countries of the former USSR would prefer to move to Russia.

          If you look closely at the system of power in these small countries, you can see that the main political family has thinned out a bit after "successful" integration, and now this polit beau monde is based on old cadres who relay cases to relatively young receivers. These receivers will face a cruel choice - to change or break the existing order based on Russophobia in order to at least somehow stay afloat in the 20s.

      Russia in 1987 produced 1000 dollars per year per capita -
      17,5. Consumed - 11.8
      Accordingly: Belarus - 16.9 and 12;
      Ukraine - 13.1 and 14.7; Uzbekistan - 6,7 and 18; Lithuania - 15. 6 and 26.1; Latvia - 17.7 and 21.7; Estonia - 16.9 and 28.2; Georgia - 11.9 and 35.3; Armenia - 10.9 and 30;
      Well and so on in all republics.
      Only Russia and Belarus produced more than they consumed. The rest were parasites.

        "Only Russia and Belarus produced more than they consumed" ///

        Produced - what? Continuous military industry. Which does not bring profit,
        as you know (if you do not sell products abroad).
        And civilian production and consumer goods, which makes a profit, are just
        was plentiful in the union republics. But their volume in comparison with the military commissar
        was small. Hence the numbers.

          Funny.
          Is agriculture also "plentiful in the union republics"? :)
          GAZ, VAZ, ZIL, AZLK, Izh. This is only for the civilian automobile industry offhand, there were more.
          Aircraft factories (construction, not repair and not experienced) are easier to list those that were outside the RSFSR. Tashkent and Kharkov. The rest is in the RSFSR.
          Aircraft engine plants outside the RSFSR: Zaporozhye.
          Well, and so on for civilian products.
          Well, and, most importantly, all this was built on common Allied money. Before the Second World War, there was nothing sensible in the same Baltic. Neither auto, nor air, nor radio. This is probably a coincidence.
          By the way, the most powerful design bureau in Ukraine appeared solely due to the fact that Antonov personally was not very comfortable in Moscow and he preferred Kiev: he did not want to constantly share the production base of Moscow with Tupolev and the rest.

    In fact, this is the most fertile ground for the collapse of the country. Not only Latvia, but also Ukraine and other republics and, which is also important, the RSFSR had such separatist inclinations. In short - "stop feeding freeloaders." Well, the hands say that they bring food to the mouth, mouth, that he chews it, legs, that they are finally able to drag the whole body on to the kitchen, let's get to hell and then we will heal. AHA, SAME. And with all this, such alternatively gifted statements continue to find support today. In Siberia, for example. Yes, I think wherever there are alternatively gifted people.

    Well, this work of Latvian scientists is just an agitation, so that, alternatively gifted, God forbid, do not think about what you did. Latvians (or whatever? Latvians?), You no longer feed the parasites - rejoice !!!

    Here is such a "Rigonda" used to be. It used to be ... but now nothing is needed.
    Although the Baltic experts themselves admit that if the West turns away from them, then integration into the old world for them will take three years for natural reasons.
    And so ... well, what can we expect from them now? What will they write now that the Baltic states were a paradise during the Union era? Now it doesn’t send taxes to Moscow and has it become richer? Nothing of the kind! And the Russians are to blame too, but it is expected.)))

      We recently had this kind of `` Cantata-204 ''

      The quality is of course disgusting, it broke very often. Especially the part where the records were played. In the USSR, almost all household appliances were copies from the West.

        And what can be broken there? The player panel is metal and 5 wires go to it, 3 to the engine and 2 from the pickup. I repaired such "on my knee", you need a screwdriver and a nipple from any sewing machine. The pickup needle there is plastic, double-sided. It was sold in any radio products - not a shortage. The main thing is that the receiver with the amplifier is operational, so they are tube. Lamps are easier to change than solder transistors. Something like this. hi

          The engine was constantly burning, and the entire part associated with the rotation of the disk. The receiver itself did not work badly, it caught the signal well. Even foreign stations, if you connect an antenna wink

            Yes, yes, that’s why you need an oiler. When it was not turned on for a long time, the oil in the engine bushings froze and coked. They turned on the power, but the engine could not crank and burned. If you turn it on at least once or twice a month, then everything worked as it should.

        We recently had this kind of `` Cantata-204 ''

        The quality is of course disgusting, it broke very often. Especially the part where the records were played. In the USSR, almost all household appliances were copies from the West.

      vice versa. This is the RAF at Victory units. Then they switched to the new RAF on GAZ-24 units. And they transferred it to Armenia, but the build quality was no longer right, and it was unrealistic to drive a new car from Armenia to the RSFSR on its own without arrival at the service station.

      So what is incomprehensible? Puppeteers fed us, and these provided us with production, because the quilted jackets do not know how and do not want to do anything. We have cabbage soup, and they have borsch and sprats, and therefore we are backward. The logic is quite familiar - the absence of any logic. They said correctly above. It is necessary to file a lawsuit against all these nonsense - how much they got from the USSR, and we took all the debts. Calculate the cost of factories, weapons and demand - let them choke.

    Before entering the USSR:
    In the Estonian industry in the 30s, 17,5% of the country's workforce was employed, in Latvia - 13,5%, in Lithuania - 6%. By 1938, the manufacturing industry in Latvia was only 56% of the 1913 level.

    Entered the composition, and the tram-pam-pam! RSFSR how to start milking! Already, Estonia became the first in the Union for investments per capita and Latvia jumped to 40th place in GDP per capita in the world.
    And here he is a sweet moment of freedom! We’ll panz right now!
    Suddenly, immediately after self-determination (the decision to quit was made by an unconstitutional body, if that), the economy collapsed in Latvia by more than 50%. How so? Russia "quitrent" stopped taking, where is the money, Zin?
    And today almost a fifth of the GDP of the small and “terribly rich” Baltic countries is EU subsidies. I’ll keep silent about demography, about the deceased (and all who have successfully blamed) either well or ... And then the prospects are not encouraging at all since 2017 by 28% of the EU the subsidized content is cut, the voice in the head interferes with normal trading with Russia ... and ... the figures that I indicated at the very beginning as of 1930 are getting closer and closer.
    Maybe that's why they rave and dream that at least someone would again occupy them and raise the economy?
