America offered to buy Russia

50
Influential American magazine The American Interest has published an article that suggests a "rational and low-cost" way to neutralize the Russian threat: Russia is invited to simply buy.

America offered to buy Russia




The author of the article states that Russia and the Western world are approaching the beginning of a new cold war, so there is a heated debate in the US about how to contain Russia. The emphasis on military deterrence, which today is given priority, is too expensive: only in 2017, US military spending will amount to 589 billion dollars.

"We should pause for a minute and ask ourselves: why should the West deplete its resources if Russia is not ruled by Stalin - or Hitler-like leaders obsessed with world-dominated ideologies - but rather a group of entrepreneurs who keep their money in Western banks, they buy real estate in the West, teach their children in Western universities and have passports and even temporary residence permits, ”writes The American Interest.

“These people would not rule Russia as they do now if they really wanted to rule the world,” the author stresses. According to him, the Russian elite only seeks to "gain material advantage from the ownership of the corporation called" Russia ".

On this basis, an obvious solution to the problems hanging over the West concerning Russia is coming to the fore. “If Russia behaves not so much as a rationally organized modern state, but rather as a" corporate "country, which is owned by local oligarchs, then its behavior should be viewed not as a state, but as an intercorporation,” the magazine notes. “And in the corporate world, the best possible The steps that should be taken in relation to a small but aggressive company are an attempt to buy it and incorporate it into a larger business conglomerate. "

“These people would not rule Russia as they do now if they really wanted to rule in peace”

The author of the article emphasizes that this, of course, is about the purchase not of territory, natural wealth or people, but of assets that the Russian ruling class considers its property. Accordingly, it is proposed to take the value of all Russian companies whose shares are traded on the Moscow Exchange as a basis for calculating the price of such a transaction.

"On 1 August 2017, it was 33,6 trillion rubles, or about 559 billion dollars, that is, about the same as Alphabet or Microsoft," - says The American Interest. Of course, there are still private assets, as well as revenues received from state unitary corporations, therefore it is reasonable to increase the indicated figure by one and a half to two times. “But even if we double the figure mentioned above, we’ll get a total of 1,1-1,2 trillion dollars,” the magazine reassures readers.



In addition, a significant part of Russian assets already belongs to foreign investors, so that part of the amount can be saved. “So let's stop at 1 trillion dollars,” suggests The American Interest.

“Until now, the assets controlled by the Russian elite had a positive profit in the amount of 10-12% of their market value - or approximately 65-85 billion dollars annually,” the author of the article calculated. “This figure practically coincides with the outflow of net capital from Russia: according to the Bank of Russia, from 2008 to 2016 year, capital outflows in total amounted to 644,7 billion dollars. "

From the coincidence of figures, the author concludes that "company owners are trying to extract the maximum profit from Russia." The conclusion suggests itself. “What happens if all these people offer a“ fair ”price for their property - for example, 2 trillion dollars, which is 30 times their annual net income? Will these people bargain hard if a serious buyer offers them a good price? ".

According to the American magazine, the Russian oligarchs will be happy to seize such an opportunity, since "the overwhelming majority of the representatives of the Russian elite are prepared for losing all their assets."

A significant part of the article, of course, is devoted to a discussion of the question of whether the indicated price is too large. “2 trillion dollars is less than half of that amount (4,79 trillion dollars) that the US has already spent on a senseless war in Iraq,” the author explains. “These are about two US military budgets (in 2017 / 18 in the fiscal year, the US military budget will be 824,7 billion dollars.) 2 trillion is one-tenth of the US federal debt or the amount by which this debt increases every two years. "

You can also add that in the framework of the "quantitative easing" program, the US Fed has distributed 3,5 banks trillions of dollars. "2 trillion can hardly be called a high price for eliminating the greatest existential threat looming over the US," concludes The American Interest.

"In addition, we should not think of these 2 trillion dollars as money to spend and forget," explains the American magazine. "Buying Russia will be the best investment the US government has ever made. Russian companies are seriously undervalued and only a small part of the value of their American counterparts. If a more responsible leadership and a more transparent judicial system appear in Russia, these assets will grow at least five times in value. "

"At the same time, Western companies will get a huge new market, huge reserves of resources and talent"

The author of the idea provided that "prior to the conclusion of this transaction, all representatives of Russia will receive immunity from prosecution for financial crimes, that all money held in conditional deposit accounts will be exempt from any checks and that participants in the transaction selling assets worth more than 20 million dollars, will receive passports of western countries or permits for permanent residence. " Thus, the money that the West spends on this transaction will remain within Western economies and will be reinvested in real estate, stocks and other assets in developed countries. "At the same time, Western companies will receive a huge new market, huge reserves of resources and talents," writes The American Interest.



“Someone may say that this project is too unrealistic, because politics and business must be connected in it,” the author of the idea writes. “I can agree with this, however, perhaps we should still try to implement it, because the policy and business is closely intertwined in the figure of a man who now holds the post of head of the White House. "

It remains to note the last detail - who is such a creative spawned such a brilliant idea. The author of the article in The American Interest is a Russian economist, sociologist and political figure Vladislav Inozemtsev.

Inozemtsev is a member of the Scientific Council of the Russian International Affairs Council (INF), established in 2011 by order of President Dmitry Medvedev. The list of co-founders of the INF Treaty includes the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. Official media calls this organization "one of the instruments of public diplomacy and the" soft power "of Russia in the world."

              And what - someone tried to buy our manual? Or already bought?
              The article is not about leadership at all, but about business. Like, you get stocks - and that's all, nothing else is needed - everything is in chocolate and Russia is in your pocket. The reality is even close different. if you start buying Russian companies, their price will jump tenfold. Microsoft’s cost is determined by not quite tangible things, at least those that cannot be “felt”, and replacing its products is very easy and simple. And the point is not in its indispensability, but in untwisted. But Gazprom’s production is just material, you can’t do without it, and the cost of Gazprom is just underestimated, and at times, even as much as dozens of times. So we will only benefit from this sale - this is an investment and nothing more. Further, a number of strategically important sectors are not completely sold in principle, but only a small block of shares is sold.
              And most importantly - suppose that they sold the shares of all enterprises. But what are they - in rows and columns from this to leave Russia? Or fly to the moon?
              Of course, there may be cases of deliberate bankruptcy of strategically important enterprises, or Russian competitors of Western companies, but the authorities are simply obliged to monitor this, ensuring economic security is their task. And in itself, the replacement of Russian oligarchs with Western public companies is perhaps even a good move for Russia.
              So, perhaps, the author of this article V. Inozemtsev directly offers the West - well, buy us, invest money in us - this money is quite small compared to the existing hemorrhoids with Russia - and everything will change! fellow
              I just suspect bully that with the change of owners, the position of our authorities is unlikely to change! They are not waiting for any of the people in power in the West, they will not be allowed to use any means and property there, and if necessary, the judicial process can be bungled for almost any reason. And our powers that be (the oligarchs who joined them) understand this perfectly, and even with the transfer of ownership, nothing will change in Russia.
              The reality will change to the ridiculous thing - how to continue to spread rot on the Russian economy, if by doing this you spread rot on your own companies? hi

                  There were no enterprises bought in Greece. And nobody bought Greece itself.
                  The only thing that was closed was the shipbuilding enterprises, but this happened because of the long crisis in this industry and the inability to compete with the Asian tigers. Plus, Greece’s entry into the European Union and the introduction of the euro competition diminished: all its products have risen sharply. Greece’s problems are different - the government joyfully distributed social benefits, and the relevant European authorities and the European Bank closed their eyes to this for the time being. And when they paid attention to the debts, they had already reached sky-high peaks. And the benefits cannot be completely canceled, since new jobs are not being created in Greece, and debt is only increasing. So sometimes you don’t have to buy a country ... hi

          They already had a chance and they missed it. At one time they did this to Germany. They published the "Marshall Plan" and flooded Germany with money, sharply raised the standard of living and the country ceased to have any angry feelings for England and the USA, they became allies. The same could be between Russia and the United States in the 90s. If the United States were more far-sighted and built some semblance of that plan for Russia and saved us from such a sharp economic collapse by providing free financial assistance under our control - so as not to plunder, I think today we would be a member of NATO and would discuss other things, but the story went a different way. To defeat the enemy is one thing, and to make him your friend is aerobatics, but the history of the subjunctive mood does not tolerate ... The chance was missed.

            Dear, Orel. I have doubts that the chance has been missed. Russia is slowly selling out (under the guise of foreign investment). This is an objective reality that does not depend on our desires. I will cite once again the information of two experts (maybe you are not in the know). Very interesting information.
            1. "... GENERAL CONCLUSION ON STATE PROPERTY IN THE INDUSTRY. State assets are still the largest in the generation of electricity, mining (oil and gas production, amber, uranium and diamonds), oil refining, transport engineering, and the nuclear industry. In other industries, the state is no longer plays a significant role.More than half of the companies reviewed have foreign or offshore companies in the list of shareholders or founders.https: //aftershock.news/?q=node/423561
            2. "... I wrote about the fact that I am collecting a base of all Russian companies with revenues of about a billion a year. The base has finished collecting. Results. Actually - it confirmed so obvious, if you look around, the thing is that the Russian consumer paradise was created entirely by foreign companies It’s impossible to interpret this story unambiguously - maybe it was so planned and we deceived them? ...

              I am sure that 99 percent of these offshore companies are completely Russian beneficiaries. These are the same officials or their brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren, friends and comrades. This is not selling themselves abroad, this is theft by officials of their own people. With this I agree with you.

              The Russian consumer paradise was created entirely by foreign companies.


              Then I would not worry. Trade has always been quite international, and now in the era of globalization, and even more so. In the domestic market of the same states there are a lot of foreign trading companies, for example, the same Chinese. This is just a sign of the times.

    Dear Maxim is completely right. Look at our oligarchs. Take the former railroad leader. Why it is allowed to withdraw funds abroad for the investment of their economy. Indeed, under such a policy Russia will not become, it will disappear. The PRC has shown an example of the growth of well-being of the people and the country as a whole. The country's economic development model is vicious. And then they teach on TV all young people to buy government shares in other countries. Think about why this is done? Now 1% of the country's population owns 99% of the country's wealth. If this continues, in theory there will be an explosion. I have the honor.

    What suck old news? Publications at least a week.
    Let's take a closer look at this:
    14 hours ago, source: Lenta.Ru
    The State Duma introduced a bill on the distribution of oil money to Russians
    A group of deputies from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation submitted to the State Duma a bill on the distribution in equal shares between the majority of citizens of the part of budget revenues related to mining. This is evidenced by a document posted in the database of the lower house of the Russian parliament.

    The government gave a negative opinion on the project. Part of the funds mentioned is spent on ensuring the functions of the state, including the protection of the rights and freedoms of a citizen, the formation of the Reserve Fund and the National Welfare Fund. “Thus, the right of every citizen to receive income from the use of natural resources is realized through the listed government expenditures on providing benefits and payments guaranteed by the Constitution of Russia and federal laws,” the government concluded.


    We will consider and laugh heartily

    The surname Inozemtsev speaks for itself and it’s ridiculous to call such a Russian .... Russia already had troubled times, the Polish occupation, the lords, but Pozharsky and Minin were found ....

    This they are going to do the second China from Russia, when in the late 80s investments from America rained down there with a golden rain, well, what is the result today, China bought it or not. If political power is in such reliable hands as in China, then American investments will not bring any danger. Because appropriate laws will be worked out that will firmly uphold independence and guard the sovereignty of the state. The idea of ​​Americans about the structure of the system in foreign countries only by the example of their country will make a cruel joke with them.

      China was exposed to difficult conditions for granting these loans, because of the program, one family - one child, the Chinese enter the demographic hole, because everyone wanted boys and had abortions of girls. The second point, due to environmental problems with the extraction of rare earths, is the difficult environmental situation. We had a "famine" because of these loans, but they did industrialization, but they almost ruined the people, who eventually ceased to feel their land. They know how to seduce, but themselves, after a few financial bubbles, face default, so what now are their empty money and promises?

    The problem is that once having thrown this elite, calling it the “Russian Mafia”, they put these people outside their legal field. I myself know how local businessmen tried through China to transfer money to Australia, where they were all arrested on far-fetched pretexts and basta. So our only fools like Prokhorov can sell everything here and transfer everything there. The example of Ukrainian oligarchs is also indicative, after the Maidan they were swaddled and their funds were arrested. We would also follow the example of the Bolsheviks to confiscate Western assets, this would be the best move, or rather to impose burdensome taxes on foreign "speculator investors".
