The economic situation in the United States

Despite numerous assurances of US officials and pro-government "Washington" boys from the IMF and the World Bank group regarding the "sustainable recovery of the American economy" and "confidently overcoming the crisis," the real situation in the economy is still far from being ideal. from elementary balance. The American political elites, controlled by the large financial capital of Wall Street and the transnational industrial giants, not only do not discuss the real causes of the 2008 crisis, but by all means try to silence them. None of them even dare to raise the issue of the catastrophe to which the US and the entire world economy led the 40 anniversary of the unbridled domination of parasitic financial capitalism, realized in the interests of the international financial oligarchy and based on the construction of the dollar debt pyramid.


Against the background of the incessant talk about improving the financial and economic situation in the United States, the real situation in the economy remains extremely difficult: economic growth of 3% in the 4-th quarter. 2011 more than 67% was due to a record jump in material and technical stocks by 3,5% in the last 25 of the year. At the same time, the White House manages to maintain the level of economic and business activity solely due to the maintenance of record budget deficits - of the order of 9-13% over the past 4 years. The enormous emission pumping of financial markets by the Federal Reserve ($ 2,3 trillion over the last 3 of the year), coupled with unrecorded emissions (guarantees, sureties, etc.) in the amount of $ 13 trillion. allows you to keep borrowing rates at historically low levels (0,05-2%) and inflate bubbles in financial markets that mimic the revival of business activity and the recovery of the global economy.

At the same time, not a word is said about the existing structural imbalances and distortions in the American economy, which threaten with the exhaustion of the effect of emission flooding of financial markets with liquidity to plunge not only the American but the entire world economy into a phase of new global depression. At the same time, the existing monetary and financial system, based on uncontrolled and unlimited dollar emission in the interests of the largest international shareholder banks of the Federal Reserve and building a pyramid of unpaid debts, also will not stand under the onslaught of fundamental distortions.

We are talking about the exorbitant debt burden on the state (105% of GDP), White House's uncovered social and health care obligations (350% of GDP), perennial chronic budget deficits (10% of GDP over 3,5 years), and the trade balance (3,8% of GDP), excessive debt burden of the population (120% of disposable income), stagnation in the housing market (sales 4 times lower than 2006) and still extremely high unemployment (officially 8,3%, in reality at least 16,5%), which throws everything to the side greater number of american citizens etc Oocyte lumpenization and degradation of the population.

The report of the Federal Treasury on the dynamics of the state budget execution in February 2012 was completely disappointing. - despite the growing political crisis around excess spending, the federal budget deficit in February of this year exceeded $ 232 billion, which was 1,7 times higher than the level of November 2011g. and almost 4,5% surpassed the value of February of the previous year. In general, following the first 2 months, the US state budget deficit exceeded $ 259,4 billion. If the White House cannot step on the throat of the military-industrial complex and cut funding for military operations to "plant democracy" in the Middle East and Afghanistan, it risks provoke a full-fledged budget crisis and finally undermine the confidence of investors and other countries in the US currency. And this can already be a good enough reason to further destabilize financial markets and provoke a market crash.

Concern about shrinking consumer activity of American citizens, expressed in a slowdown in retail sales growth in large retail chains from 5,3% in early January, 2012 is causing quite strong concerns. to less than 2,3% in mid-March. And even the debt burden on the population, which has decreased from 135% to 115% of the size of disposable income, is not able to have a significant impact on the revival of consumer activity. Especially in conditions when the labor market, with the exception of the financial sector and certain sectors of the service sector (restaurants, hotels, tourism), still stagnates.

Moreover, if we correct the official data of the US Department of Commerce for real inflation (cleared of manipulations with hedonic indexes, the structure of the consumer basket and geometric mean smoothing), it turns out that the real retail trade in the US is at the end of 2006, despite 35% increase in public debt over the past 4 of the year, uncontrolled investments in financial markets of more than $ 3,2 trillion. and unrestrained talk about a bright future of the deindustrializing US economy, breathing its last, and the unshakable positions of "dollar imperialism".

The situation with the dynamics of retail sales and consumer activity looks absolutely awful, if the official and extremely politically correct data of the state statistical services on the population growth of the United States is adjusted. In this case, the increase in retail sales for the period 1990-2011gg. will be not widely advertised pre-election 48,2%, but much more modest 102,2%. Taking into account the real inflation, the increase at all will amount to barely noticeable 22,7%, while most of this increase is due to inflation of the debt burden on the population and jump in consumption of 20% of the most wealthy US citizens, while the standard of living of 40% of the least well-off population has decreased by 5 -10%.

The next wave of optimism was triggered by a report by the US Department of Labor, whose experts continue to push for electoral optimism and continue to throw out, with rare zeal, those who receive unemployment benefits for more than 2 years or have lost all hopes of finding a permanent job. The natural result of the statistical perversions of the White House was the decrease in the US unemployment rate from 9,2% to 8,3% for the period from mid-summer 2011. However, an alternative estimate of the unemployment rate (U6 indicator), given by the Ministry of Labor itself and taking into account the “desperate unemployed”, indicates that the unemployment rate exceeds the 15% mark.

However, this assessment of unemployment causes skepticism - over the past 30 years, the US economic authorities, acting under pressure from the ruling class and the financial oligarchy, have changed the 3 times in the methodology for calculating employment indicators. If you resort to the methodology of the middle 1980-ies, which took into account part-time employment, desperate to find a job for more than 12 months and idle for economic reasons, then the unemployment rate goes beyond 22,5%. And this is quite comparable to being in a state of undeclared default. The only thing that saves the White House is part-time employment and social benefits for unemployment, supported by giant holes in the local and federal budgets.

At the same time, the average duration of being in the status of unemployed in the 2011. jumped from 37,4 to 40 weeks, and the proportion of the so-called chronically unemployed "jumped in the last 4 of the month from 42,2% to 42,6%. And this is in conditions where almost half of all 227 created in February 2012. jobs were due to a jump temporary employment in the services sector (+ 45 thousand places), as well as public health and social welfare (+ 61,1 thousand places). If in January of the previous year the growth of jobs in these sectors did not exceed 13,8 and 16,1 thousand places, respectively then by December 2011 it grew to 18,7 and 29,5 s. the places and at the beginning 2012g. and all doubled.

The situation in foreign trade is not much better, in which the United States continues to act as a net consumer of imported goods and services and, contrary to numerous statements by officials, can in no way reduce its excess consumption, which provokes increased distortions in the global economy. In other words, the US government artificially supports excessive consumption of final goods and services, which it is in principle not able to pay even theoretically. Sustainable US trade deficits began to form at the end of the 1960-1970-s, when the rampant flight of large industrial and financial capital, as well as the transfer of production capacity outside the country in search of cheaper labor, caused a drop in the production of marketable products in the US and chronic excess import over export.

It was in the second half of the 1960's. Treasury by agreement with bankers from Wall Street, among other things being the main shareholders of the American "printing press" represented by the Fed, began to expand emission pumping and expand debt burden. As a result, the ratio of gold reserves of the Ministry of Finance in relation to the emitted cash money fell from the 90-100% required under the Bretton Woods system to barely noticeable 10%, which provoked the inability of the US to fulfill its obligations to foreign owners of dollar reserves and exchange paper dollars for gold. In fact, in mid-August 1971g. during the famous Nixon speech about freezing the exchange of gold for US dollars defaulted and, apparently, lost the race of the USSR.

After the abolition of the gold standard in August 1971g. and removing the "golden brake" from the emission pumping of the economy and inflating consumption into debt (known as "reaganomics policies", but prepared under Jimmy Carter), began the orgy of financial capitalism, which turned into "dollar hegemony", inflation of financial bubbles and unrestrained growth of debt burden . Only in the last 30 years, the level of government debt burden jumped from 40% to 105%, the ratio of debt to disposable household income increased from 55% to 115%.

The natural outcome of unleashing the financial oligarchy that controls the printing press of the Federal Reserve was a massive redistribution of assets and national income: the share of the financial sector in corporate profits in the US jumped from 4% in 1947. to 45% in 2007g., and the share in the country's GDP has expanded from 2% to 17%. In fact, taking into account the scale of the redistribution of assets and national wealth in favor of the financial oligarchy, as well as control over a critical part of the financial assets of the state, the population and the corporate sector, it can be a question of the dominant position of large transnational financial capital in the economy and politics of the USA - up to 30% in GDP and 50% in profits.

The dominance of large financial capital, which actively parasitized on the emission pumping of financial markets and the lifting of restrictions on cross-border capital flows, led to the overflow of capital from low profitable real sectors of the economy and basic science to speculative operations on financial markets with high returns. At the same time, according to the report of the Comptroller of Money Circulation at the US Treasury, in the hands of 4 key US banks are concentrated more than 98% of the total derivatives market, which became the main tool for manipulating financial markets, commodity exchanges, and, consequently, the global economy.

The scale of concentration and centralization of bank capital in the hands of the largest and most influential banking groups is most clearly manifested in the following examples - from the beginning of the 1980's. the share of assets attributable to banks with total assets exceeding $ 10 billion jumped from 27% to 82%, and their share in total banking sector profits increased more than 4 times - from 20% to 87%. At the same time, despite the overall growth in the number of banks with assets exceeding $ 10 billion, the list of the largest shareholders of the Federal Reserve and prime dealers, determining the fate of the American and the entire world economy, as well as the situation in the currency and financial markets, has not undergone almost any changes. As before, control over the printing press and the issue of the dollar is in the hands of an international financial cartel, whose interests are often diametrically opposed to the interests of the state, the population, and industrial capital.

Separate attention should be paid to the relentless conversations of supranational ruling elites and the “Washington boys in short pants” from the IMF and World Bank serving their interests that the rapid growth of the debt burden on all sectors of the US economy (from 110% to 370% of GDP over the last 40 years) not conducive to lowering US financial stability and destabilizing the financial system It is clear that large transnational financial capital, as well as international monopolies, in whose interests financial globalization was carried out under the banner of "dollar imperialism", does everything possible to keep silent about its parasitic existence - instead of acting as an instrument for financing capital investments and means of ensuring expanded reproduction and realization of the investment potential of the industry, financial capital mutated into an independent predatory faction of capitalism, parasitic on the decay of the world economy.

For more than 40 years, the only net recipient of interest payments on loans in the United States (and the situation is similar throughout the world) has been the banking sector, whose net interest income for the last 40 years (with the abolition of the gold standard) jumped from $ 15 to $ 650 billion . (4,5% of GDP). At the same time, the total interest payments on loans from the US government and the non-banking corporate sector are based on 2009 only. exceeded $ 300 and $ 315 billion (4,2% of GDP).

The situation is no better for the ordinary citizens of the United States, whom the propaganda of the Washington Regional Party Committee has managed to record as one of the main beneficiaries of the rampant financial capitalism - net interest payments of the population in 2009. passed for $ 190 billion. At the same time still in 1989g. At its peak, the net interest incomes of the US population exceeded $ 220 billion. Since then, the financial system has completely gone out of control of the state and society and functions solely in the interests of itself and its main owners, realizing the lion’s share of national income and wealth in favor of financial oligarchy.

Since the beginning of the 1970's. The annual US foreign trade deficit jumped from $ 15 billion to $ 551 billion in 2008. - i.e. 36,7 times. At the same time, over the past 12 years, the US imports of goods and services exceeded exports by $ 350-600 billion or 3,5-5% of GDP. In other words, annually throughout 2000-2011. The United States received a good loan from all the rest of the world at a rate of a few percent of its GDP, which, coupled with an increase in the debt load, made it possible to maintain the illusion of an increase in the welfare of the population. Following the 2000-2011g. the cumulative accumulated deficit of US foreign trade exceeded $ 7,37 trillion, which is almost half of the GDP of the "empire of good" in 2011. - $ 15,3 trillion

The "imperialism of the dollar" and the system of global comprador bribery of national elites allowed the American management class, which is one of the main centers of power within the global management class, to draw most of the previously independent countries of the world into a system of unequal foreign economic exchange. In other words, over the past 40 years of domination of dollar-based financial capitalism in exchange for selling off real goods and resources (oil, gas, metals), exporting countries in the United States receive from them unsecured dollar bills (or numbers on computer accounts) in such a volume without loss you can only invest in the debt securities of the US government. This contributed to the inflow of financial capital in the United States, the further inflation of bubbles in the consumer and financial markets, as well as the growth of imbalances in excess consumption. It is not surprising that, coupled with the effect of overvalued relative to the real purchasing power of the dollar rate, this allows the US, with its contribution to world GDP at 18,5%, to generate about 40% of global final demand and maintain the share of the dollar in the international settlement system above the 55-60% .

In other words, throughout all the 40 years of uncontrolled emission pumping of the world economy and financial globalization, realized in the interests of a narrow circle of the largest international banks-shareholders of the Federal Reserve and the rest of the largest Central Banks, all other countries lent and free of charge to the system of unequal foreign exchange. continue to lend to the United States, exchanging resource for non-resource, commodity for non-commodity, physical for virtual, i.e. real capital is fictitious. Over the past 12 years alone, the United States has thus received a net commodity credit of $ 6,7 trillion. (44,6% of GDP), and for the period since the cancellation of the gold standard and the monetization of debt, the accumulated deficit of US foreign trade exceeded $ 8,5 trillion. In many ways, this artificially inflated due to the expansion of credit and the imposition of the world's only reserve currency in the face of the dollar consumption and helped create the illusion of rising living standards of American citizens and for the time being to cover the crisis state of the American economy, which has become, in fact, bankrupt.

At the same time, worthless dollar bills obtained as part of such a non-equivalent exchange are also permanently depreciated in 6-10 years during periodically provoked stock and stock market crises, which contributes to the depreciation of debts and the burning of excess dollar money supply. Only since the cancellation of the gold standard and the launch of the global dollar issue flywheel, the US currency depreciated 7 times, and since the creation of the Federal Reserve (headquarters of the international banking cartel) the dollar's purchasing power has fallen more than 23 times.

Since the removal of the "golden brake" and the elimination of all sorts of restrictions with the uncontrolled emission of the dollar and other reserve currencies, there has been a process of so-called "inflation of petrodollars", expressed in the ubiquitous growth of quotations on the financial, commodity and currency markets, creating the illusion of reviving the global economy and the turbulent development of business activity. However, in fact, there is an unbridled depreciation of "paper" currencies, manifested in the "inflation of financial assets" - the issue of key reserve currencies was finally untied from the real economy and increase in commodity security, which triggered a general inflation of financial bubbles.

For more than 40 years, the overwhelming majority of countries of the so-called "periphery of world dollar imperialism", which has entered into the system of international division of labor imposed by American TNCs and global banks on the rights of colonial banana republics and suppliers of cheap labor, lend free of charge to their material and labor resources US and support the purchasing power of the depreciating dollar. In fact, the liberalization of foreign economic relations, which is imposed on the frankly colonial and predatory "Washington Consensus", is aimed solely at simplifying the access of global monopolies and international banks to the markets of previously independent countries and their subsequent financial and economic colonization.

As the experience of Eastern European countries and former member countries of the USSR shows, the monstrous deindustrialization of the economy, the collapse of high-tech industries, the degradation of science, technology and technology becomes the logical outcome of the thoughtless lifting of restrictions on cross-border capital movements and following the recommendations of “Washington boys” production potential, lumpenization of the population and the slide of national economies into a state of medieval feudal archaic. It is precisely this that demonstrates with utmost clarity the example of the Eurozone covered by the debt crisis, which reflects the deep crisis of the whole European integration project, which was colonial in nature. Neither Greece, nor Portugal, nor even Spain, within the framework of the existing system of division of labor, have any sources for existence - they simply cannot offer competitive products to the European market and compete with Western European industrial giants.

And Russia, unfortunately, over the past 22 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union has also been acting as a raw materials appendage and supplier of skilled labor for the United States, the European Union and, more recently, China. Over the past 20 years, more than $ 750 billion has flowed out of the country only according to official statistics of the Bank of Russia, and given the “gray” and frankly criminal withdrawal of capital, this figure exceeds $ 1,5-2 trillion. Taking into account lost capital gains and the multiplicative negative effect of 2-fold fall in GDP, 60% industrial collapse, 5-fold compression of capital investments, 10-fold fall in high-tech industries and the extinction of 15 million people total losses will exceed $ 3,5-4 . If we add to this figure the devouring of national wealth from the sale of irreplaceable natural resources in the amount of $ 3,3 trillion, then the sum of Russia's direct economic losses from one-sided and defective embedding into the global division of labor carried out in the interests of Wall Street banks and the largest international banks will exceed $ 7 trillion mark

Only in the last 20 years, the share of mineral raw materials and primary processing products in exports jumped from 26% to 92%, the share of manufacturing industries in GDP fell from 36% to 16,1%, production volumes in the processing industries are 20% below 1990g levels, and in mechanical engineering, machine-tool construction and instrument-making, the output does not reach 40-55% of the level of the late USSR. At the same time, in most manufacturing sectors, especially in investment engineering, equipment manufacturing and light industry, the load level has fallen from 82-87% to 30-45%. And no matter how much the Russian authorities would talk about their intention to get off the “oil needle” and carry out “modernization,” the process did not go any further than replacing light bulbs in doorways and digging out a potato field in Skolkovo.

If the Russian authorities really want to break out of complete economic, political, financial, ideological, and scientific and technical dependence, then it is necessary to reorient the entire model of the Russian economy in the shortest time possible from eating up the natural resource rent to maximizing scientific, technical, infrastructural and industrial rent. And for this it is necessary to declare a war on systemic corruption at the highest level, to limit the arbitrariness of the raw material monopolies that terrorize the manufacturing industry and the population of extremely high tariffs and make the overwhelming majority of non-primary sectors of the economy unprofitable. It is necessary to untie the ruble emission from the inflow of petrodollars and foreign loans as soon as possible, as well as to start the mechanism of crediting the domestic economy and refinancing the national banking system so that the money supply is formed in accordance with the needs of domestic producers, rather than games of global speculative capital.

“Dollar imperialism”, which pumped out juices from the world economy in the interests of large transnational financial and industrial capital, is gradually choking under the weight of the structural imbalances and contradictions generated by it. Unlike 2008, when the collapse of the existing monetary and financial system, based on the hegemony of the dollar and the US government’s pyramid of debt, was prevented, it was possible only thanks to the launch of the printing press and the unprecedented scale of flooding financial markets with cheap liquidity ($ 13 trillion, taking into account off-balance emission in the United States alone), to prevent the collapse of the "imperialism of the dollar" by monetary methods today will not work. The level of US government debt jumped from 65% to 105% of GDP, and half of the eurozone countries are already in technical default - Italy, Spain and Portugal manage to refinance previously taken debts solely due to the issue of the financial market from the ECB in the amount of $ 1,4 trillion. for the last year.

The world economy and the international monetary and financial system are at a standstill and are on the verge of collapse - the more the world's largest central banks flood financial markets with cheap liquidity in the interests of transnational financial capital, the larger the bubbles in financial markets and the more severely the real economy suffers from growth costs and the faster the real standard of living of the population falls.

        America can walk along the edge of the abyss for as long as it wants, Only the "evil" will of creditors can push it down. The trouble is that, falling, America will drag the whole world with it and these same creditors in the first place. Everyone understands that they are feeding parasites, but it is scary to rid yourself and the whole world of them.

          Everything has gone since WWII. Money fell on the US military-industrial complex, and the war ended, and the factories were working and working, and the Cold War was invented, and local wars, everything goes in the furnace of this engine.
          But the locomotive has already run out of all amortization periods. The locomotive is starting to peddle. The question is how to safely stop this? In an accident, it will be bad for all of us, too.

        I understand where the "ears" of such thinking grow from. Indeed, during the first and second world wars, the states were incredibly rich at the expense of Europe. This is explained by the fact that Europe was then a world industrial center and as a result of massive destruction, etc. capital flowed to where it is quieter and there is also at least some kind of industrial base - the United States. Plus the help for which Europe (and us during the Second World War) had to pay in gold. But now such a trick will not pass. The world war will look very boring today - a few minutes of fun in the form of bright spots and dust mushrooms, and then years of dismantling the rubble and treating those who were unlucky enough to survive in the post-nuclear hell. Regional conflict - well, America has long been involved in two - Afghanistan and Iraq. So far, this has not helped the economy much. Of course, the current Iraqi government easily sells oil and agrees to buy US weapons and equipment, but this hardly covers the costs of maintaining the occupation forces.

                  To begin with, let's go through history: on December 23, 1913, the Federal Reserve System was created, which is an association of US private commercial banks. It was she who, from December 23, 1913 to this day, has been printing the former American, and now federal dollars, and gives them a loan to the American government (who does not believe to check: www.federalreserve.gov).



                  It was on December 23, 1913 that the Federal Reserve System took a long-term lease for 99 years for a printing money machine.

                  July 22, 1944 in Bretton Woods, noble people decided to make dollars an international reserve currency, at a price of $ 35 per troy ounce of gold.

                  On March 16, 1973, the gold content of dollars was canceled at the Paris Conference.

                  Since then, dollars have become simple wrappers, which are printed by a group of individuals and for which the United States has gained space-sized debt from the whole world.

                  By the way, 99 years (by international agreement) is a long-term lease term. If we consider that on December 23, 1913 the Federal Reserve system leased a printing press for 99 years, then the lease term expires on December 23, 2012.

      And under the first photograph it was necessary to place another.
      The Founding Fathers of America stand, as Lenin usually stands in our country, and with outstretched arms point to a huge stone ass. And the signature under the poster "You are going the right way ... gentlemen!"
      And in order to go out worthily, in their opinion, back to where the founders send them. Our cunning American friends began to think about how to deceive once again, sorry for the soft tone that the whole world they owe. And they, it seems to them, have found a successful way out. Which ask?
      This exit is called - AMERO. In the photo you can see a sample of a bill of the North American Union issued by the Fed in 2009.
      The text written on the banknote - reads: "Banknote of the Federal Reserve."
      Above the words "United Federation of North America" ​​are depicted: a blue flag and three white stars on it, representing Canada, Mexico and the USA. It is written below that "This note is legal international means of payment North American Union, establish and formally adopted pursuant to the Law of missile defense of free trade and restore the economic position of the central bank, which APPROVES THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES, MEXICO AND BANK BANK OF CANADA". For the successful implementation of this worldwide scam, only the consent of the central banks of the three countries for the complete transfer of control to the Fed bankers is required. It’s easier with Canada, a conservative party led by Stephen Harper won the election there. This gentleman said that he would accelerate the process of converging the economic systems of the United States and Canada, as well as integration in the field of security, expressed in his own declaration of February 11, 2011, which is called “Without Borders: A Common Vision on the Perimeter of Security and Economic Competitiveness”. But with Mexico it’s a bit more complicated, they are reluctant to even talk about the unification of banking systems. Apparently well aware of which neighbor they will have to cooperate with. And the states have less and less time, since the drain of American money has begun. And China is the first to do this, but so far holds debt obligations.
      We also began to take certain steps, let us recall the recent BRICS meeting.

      Greetings, colleague! All this is recognized in the western ruling circles and they are far from it, but to say it out loud is SCARY! This is a social cataclysm. That's why they say a lot and beautifully about any growth of chips and other positive things (which lasts until the next day), as mantras are read. Bernanke (an eloquent name, by the way. - Ben Shalom Bernanke), speaking to students of the Higher School of Economics in the states, insolently cast a shadow over the wattle fence, indicating many reasons for the fall, but not the greed of the Fed. And the people are the same, guesses, but are afraid to realize that the situation is approaching critical.

          Our Central Bank is not subordinate to Russia, that is, it is not state.
          Read the Law on the Central Bank.
          A key element of the legal status of the Bank of Russia is the principle of independence, which is manifested primarily in the fact that the Bank of Russia acts as a special public law institution with the exclusive right to issue money and organize money circulation. It is not a public authority, however, its powers, by their legal nature, relate to the functions of state power, since their implementation involves the application of state coercive measures. The functions and powers provided for by the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the Federal Law “On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)” are performed by the Bank of Russia independently of federal state authorities, state authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and local governments. The independence of the status of the Bank of Russia is reflected in Article 75 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, as well as in Articles 1 and 2 of the Federal Law “On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)”.
          The state is not liable for the obligations of the Bank of Russia, as well as the Bank of Russia for the obligations of the state, if they have not assumed such obligations or unless otherwise provided by federal laws. The Bank of Russia is not liable for the obligations of credit organizations, and credit organizations are not liable for the obligations of the Bank of Russia, unless the Bank of Russia or credit organizations assume such obligations

          From wiki


          It would be logical to invest CBR money in the Russian economy, lending to enterprises and individuals not at 16-20% per annum, as it is now, but at 5-6%. Then the profit from the investment of state funds would be higher, and Russian enterprises and citizens could more easily bear the credit burden. Everyone would benefit.

          In turn, low interest on loans would quickly revive the Russian economy, as industry, agriculture, etc. would take loans for development and modernization more actively. And this would lead to a decrease in the cost of production and services, and, therefore, to lower prices for their sale to end consumers, i.e. increase competitiveness in the global market. Sales are growing - profit is growing. Everything is simple! So what's the deal? Why in Russia are such high interest on loans? Everything is simple again. The point is bank interest, i.e. the same percentage under which the Central Bank of the Russian Federation gives loans to state and commercial banks of the country. only the Central Bank of the Russian Federation has monopoly rights to print money. Other banks borrowed this money from him at interest. In turn, in order to receive its share of profit, any state or commercial bank raises the interest rate on lending to legal entities and individuals. So, today's 9,5% of the Central Bank is turning into 16-20% and higher for end borrowers of cash. Remember, before there were 50%, and 80, and even more than 200%!
          It is bank interest that turns industrial capital into speculative and generates inflation.
          In a normal credit and financial system, the amount of loan interest on a loan should be equal to ZERO, and the growth of the “money supply” should be limited by the growth of GDP - gross domestic product. If someone printed quietly to cover the budget deficit, then it can be simple. But if someone has established a loan interest of more than 5%, then this is just a crook, well, in a scientific way - a money-lender, even more in a scientific way - a “banking entrepreneur”, well, and absolutely in a foreign way - it's a gesheftmacher.

          “Who controls the release of money, controls the government. It doesn't matter which puppet sits on the throne in the British Empire. The person who controls the issue of money in Britain controls the British Empire, and I control the issue of money in Britain. ”

      But because in our economy, not everything is so smooth.
      Russia in 2011 again became the world leader in the export of hydrocarbons. According to the results of the year, 242 million tons of oil and 204 billion cubic meters were sent to neighboring countries. m of gas, as well as 125 million tons of oil products. State revenues from this type of export amounted to almost 322 billion dollars, an increase of more than a third compared to 2010. In the future, Russia expects only to increase these indicators.
      (took from here - http://top.rbc.ru/economics/07/02/2012/636603.shtml)
      In short, all our achievements are largely the result of the sale of oil and gas, which we sell more and more every year. We still have about 20 years of oil left (perhaps more if relatively large deposits are still explored elsewhere). Of course, there is more than 100 years of gas reserves, but if you increase production every year, this period can be significantly reduced.
      In short, we now live by selling unrenewable resources: what our ancestors left us and what we will not leave to our descendants. And it would not be so scary if all the money received went into the development of industry and science, but this is not observed.

    I do not want to draw parallels with the Soviet agitation prop. Regarding the decay of America and the West. But it really reminds. Of course, now the situation is different and the world is different. But I do not think that the United States will be bent. Well, the economic crisis, well, the financial crisis. Yes, where it was not. Get out and another gesheft will do it. The only thing that can be is to squeeze your people. But a little. Since the whole world plows on them. In short. This is what I am for. Do not hope that we will sit here for a while, and then all enemies will self-destruct and grace will come. We will have to solve all our problems ourselves. Problems with comprador, pro-Western power. Problems with the 5th column. And to solve them, in constant opposition with a strong, uncompromising enemy in the person of the United States.

      Unfortunately, the US has everything it takes to dominate. A printing press, eleven AUGs, thousands of missiles and planes, smart, an elite grip. Which will not give up the interests of her country for other people's Tugriks. Do not underestimate the enemy. We Russians also have our trump cards.

    From an economic point of view, the article is from the category of "fan of alternative history". The SP agency holds the sovereign rating of the US economy at AA + as stable with a good outlook. The move from a higher AAA rating is indeed due to the growing budget deficit and it is not clear how the Fed is going to deal with it. But as long as this rating remains so high, the United States will remain a very attractive country for investors.

          If the joint venture held this rating contrary to obvious indicators, it would have lost confidence. And by lowering it, the joint venture killed two birds with one stone; this did not affect the US economy, but the level of trust only increased! And now when the joint venture lowers the ratings of other countries, few people have doubts about their objectivity! The devils work beautifully!

    But America could have collapsed, not the USSR. Here is a chronicle of events. The economic situation in the United States was dire. 1975-76 years - an attack of catastrophic inflation in America. The Fed has to raise interest rates, stifling production. 1979 - Ayatollah Khomeini's revolution breaks out in Iran, after which oil prices skyrocket by 90% enriching the USSR and hitting the Western economy. "Reaganomics" is beating in fits of agony. Liberalization does not help: in 1982. profits of US corporations fall 26,5%. For the first time since 1921, General Motors has suffered colossal losses. In 1986. there is a crash on the New York Stock Exchange. In September, the English magazine The Economist writes: "If in 1981 the world owed the United States $ 141 billion, then in 1986 the United States owed the world $ 246 billion." Monday 19 October 1987 shocked the USA. On that day, American ships attacked an Iranian oil platform in the Persian Gulf. Panic hit the New York Stock Exchange, stock prices plummeted and the US corporation lost $ 560 billion from this. The dollar itself staggered. The US President had to personally reassure the business world. It was on that day that the Americans realized: they needed the destruction of the USSR, which would be capable of spewing out flows of cheap raw materials, technologies, valuable specialists and cash into the world. Otherwise, their economy entered a protracted crisis that led the country to ruin. The bill for the United States went on for months. In the second half of 87g. For the first time since the early 1930s, the largest US banks announced quarterly losses. The Dow Jones index collapsed by 508 points. A few weeks after that, The Wall Street Journal reported that the market was on the verge of collapse. The collapse was avoided because the new head of the Fed, Alan Greenspan, implemented secret recommendations. but it was all just a reprieve. Only a miracle could save the Yankees. And it happened. In 1987. the book of General Secretary Gorbachev is published "Perestroika and new thinking for our country and for the whole world." In fact, it was the doctrine of the complete foreign policy surrender of the USSR.

    I’m embarrassed to ask ... Is the presence of Moses in every beginning necessary? And then wander around ... You need to rob, and not look where they are not ...

    "If the Russian authorities really want to break free from complete economic, political, financial, ideological and scientific-technical dependence ...."
    For this it is still very important - NOT TO JOIN THE WTO. Otherwise, the WTO, like a spider, will suck out of the Russian economy all the "uncompetitive" enterprises (practically all except mineral raw materials, metallurgical, etc.) enterprises and destroy the Russian agriculture and industry, put the working Russians in the position of asking the state their slaves to the state in the truest sense of the word.
    I must say a clear NO to Russia's WTO accession and integration of the country into the world order, the purpose of which is to subjugate everyone and everything to the will of the world government in the face of a handful of international oligarchs, as well as to eliminate borders between states and at the same time destroy the states themselves and their sovereignty.

    Quote: Stasi.
    In 1987. the book of General Secretary Gorbachev is published "Perestroika and new thinking for our country and for the whole world." In fact, it was the doctrine of the complete foreign policy surrender of the USSR.

    Pavel, why did Andropov need to get to the helm so much? Run this project. Bourgeois Russia is joyfully accepted into a friendly European family. And Eurasia forrevor! But it did not grow together. Some kind of rogue bourgeois turned out. Europe is ready at its choice, for a while, to take ostarbeitars into service. And he wants to annex Russia, but without a population. The project is failing. And the faster it doesn’t just understand
    "elite", and will work out the following program (they are masters of the program to write, to execute somehow it does not work, yet) with which the people agree.

    The collapse of the dollar as a world currency is inevitable. The whole world knows that he is not provided with anything. The accumulation of the dollar in the treasury of the state can lead to a financial collapse of the country after the collapse of the state financial system. The collapse of the Amerov financial system is very close. Only within the framework of BRICS is it possible to switch to a new unit of account between developing and affiliated countries. Otherwise, the collapse in the financial world will bring great shock to everyone after the collapse of the dollar.
    Perhaps the states are pulling this moment to destroy the global financial system with the least loss for them and the maximum for other countries.
    States never do anything just like that - only for their own benefit. Well, a financial oligarchy using a dollar instrument for the benefit of yourself. In a certain state of affairs, they will do what they intended. What they will transfer their assets to, getting rid of a weak dollar is the question.

    It can be clearly seen on the graph how, due to Russia, the curve goes into plus in the late 80s. For this, Mishka is tagged and held in high esteem in the West. If it were not for the surrender of the country then, we would not be sitting in shit now. Here, some people really like America and life in it. Of course it’s just wonderful to live off others. But all is good when that ... ends. So what are we waiting for. And the end of the tan will be oh how not good for the whole world. I'm afraid that the world's population will be reduced and .... significantly. So I wish all forum users one thing - to SURVIVE in the upcoming Apocalypse. Sincerely.

    And the shops are still bursting with grub.

    For the bottom of GMOs, chemistry. The consequence is obesity, accelerated medicine.
    And millions of books are still being sold.

    Name at least one philosopher SSHA larger than Hemingway,
    all of their literature is somewhat superficial.
    And brilliant music still sounds

    From his own: jazz, rock, reggae ... Symphonic? Who is heard?
    And thousands of art galleries open their doors daily.

    From my own (not bought up for sale): kitsch, avant-garde, cubism ... I would not call it - this is definitely art.
    And rush the stream of luxury cars. And still the number of refugees from around the world is growing.

    This is the only thing in which I agree with the flattered Yankees Sergei Dovlatov. In the United States there is no millennial war of power and its own people.
    The conveyor and robots stamp the pieces of iron in unlimited circulation. Colt tended to be frail and greedy. And so two hundred years ago, rivets in shipyards were hammered with a steam hammer, and in the most frozen country, housing and communal services are still hammering the globe with shovels.

      I will continue the theme, the amers themselves have not heard about Hemingway, they have "over the precipice in the rye" almost war and peace.
      The whole world was spoiled by madonnas and armageddons of the savior x ... you, into the furnace of their dream!
