Exhaustion of the Reserve Fund. What is the underwater part of this iceberg?

92
Last week, a statement was made from the mouth of Finance Minister Anton Siluanov that the funds of the Reserve Fund of Russia will be exhausted by the end of this year. This is taking into account the fact that the Reserve Fund (RZF) on 1 in November of this year stored more than 975 billion rubles (1,1% of the country's GDP). Moreover, according to the head of the Ministry of Finance, the government plans to withdraw 662 billion rubles as urgent spending from the National Wealth Fund (NWF) by the end of the year. On November 1, funds in the amount of more than 4 trillion rubles (4,4% of GDP) were kept in the NWF. A similar indicator (in terms of dollar equivalent) was previously observed in November 2014.


What needs will be spent for the last days of the outgoing year? Anton Siluanov himself answered this question, stating the following:

The largest amount of expenditures is expenditures on concluded contractual obligations, these are expenditures on labor and social security, intergovernmental transfers, expenditures on debt servicing.


At the same time, it is specified that the maximum amounts of accumulated debt correspond to the Pension Fund, which frankly stopped coping with servicing Russian pensioners without withdrawing funds for these needs from the reserves of the Ministry of Finance.
At the same time, the head of the Ministry of Finance notes that the exhaustion of the Reserve Fund in 2017 was planned during the formation of the budget. Thus, the government emphasizes that in the current circumstances, without devastating the RZF, it will not be possible to fulfill its obligations. We are talking about a series of infrastructure projects, the implementation of which is in full swing (as an example, the construction of the Kerch bridge, the stadiums for the World Cup 2018, the Vostochny cosmodrome, the railway track bypassing Ukraine, the development of new weapons, etc.). It does not work and serve pension articles for the funds of the Pension Fund without the use of funds of the National Wealth Fund.

On the one hand, what else do we need government reserves, if not for the implementation of large-scale projects that are ultimately aimed at economic growth, security, and the creation of new jobs? But this medal has its down side. With all the talk about the fact that the Russian economy is gradually moving away from oil and gas dependence, increasing non-oil sectors, the implementation of anything substantial at this stage cannot be done without the government reserves accumulated during the period of high oil prices being actively depleted.

In fact, this is an assessment of the government’s work. And this score, frankly, is low. After all, the fact remains a fact: if the government has reserves accumulated from the sale of hydrocarbons by oil and gas giants abroad, it means that the government looks capable. - Funds are allocated for projects with an eye to the future. If the reserves of this kind of exhausted themselves, the government looks into another "jug", making attempts and use it to patch economic gaps. At the same time, the main question hangs in the air: do the government have any serious tools for fulfilling obligations not only with the help of reserve petrodollars? If the Cabinet of Ministers does not have such tools, then the question of the viability of the government and the viability of the Russian economy becomes the most acute.

And such a question is being asked not only in Russia itself, but also abroad. And the "friends of Russia" have their own interest. It lies in the extent to which the Russian government has enough opportunity to stretch the previously accumulated reserves for activities that would keep the Russian economy afloat and not cause social tensions? After all, for obvious reasons, not only the level of financial security of the country, but also the level of security in every sense of the word depends on the ability of the government to work not only and even not so much with the help of lasagna on reserves. For the “friends of Russia”, the very mention of the exhaustion of one of the reserve “pods” becomes a reason for taking additional “friendly measures”, the ultimate goal of which is 100% elimination of all reserve accumulations. And this means - the adoption of more stringent budgetary measures by the cabinet of ministers, which is equivalent to another appeal to citizens: “they will have to tighten their belts”.

And frankly, not everyone is ready to tighten their belts, watching news releases that report billions "under the couch" of Colonel Zakharchenko, Swiss / American / Spanish real estate among the wives and children of the town governors, the "herd" of expensive foreign cars in the garages of people's choices or governors. Not everyone is ready to slacken their belts when one of the government officials reports that almost a quarter of all allocated funds were spent on preparation for the Sochi Olympics in an “inappropriate way” when the cost of building a stadium is comparable to that of a single regional budget, Moreover, requests for finances during the construction of a strange way every time they grew.

The officials themselves actually openly report that theft is immense in scale. Do funds stolen during the implementation of a project return to the state budget? The answer is simple: most often not. And why? And according to the law ... There is no confiscation of property acquired by criminal activity. And if, in addition, the property is registered for a great-nephew, then there is only one option: a suspended sentence and an unintelligible penalty - something from the 100 series of minimum salaries, when such a sum corresponds only to a pen from the clerical set of a stolen official.

How to deal with it? This is a more philosophical question ... To fight with ourselves is, of course, an entertaining action, a vivid game to the public. The lack of punishment adequate to an economic crime only provokes new economic crimes. Even more frank and cynical.

The government apparatus is becoming a hostage, in fact, of its own, to put it mildly, non-intensive work. To put it mildly ... Very softly ... This same "non-intensive work" makes the citizens of Russia hostage, endangers state security.

In other words, it is possible to talk for a long time about the crisis and about the vile “partners” who are building intrigues, but this will once again be a discussion in favor of the poor. Intrigues, as they say, have not been canceled. But when at the same time huge chunks of the budget float into the hands of those who do not have the latest attitude to it, when the project implementation sometimes requires several times more than the planned funds only due to the fact that three or four hapugi officials attached their hands to the project , with such an approach, the government can only hope for oil at 150 dollars per barrel ... Well, do not take your own for the breasts? .. Trust-trust ... And then hope again.

And on what and on whom to hope while citizens who were informed about inflation less than 3% and about economic growth in 2% ?.

        The mediocrity of officials, the government and stupid legislative initiatives has already been FOUND!
        1. To establish for all members of the government, parliament, and officials the salary equal to the minimum wage with a small coefficient of approximately 1,6 for hospitality expenses. (Schaub didn’t break away from the people)
        2. Apartments provide only service (after service fuck on the outside) with the content for utilities at the expense of the government.
        3. Legislatively establish the responsibility of senior officials (up to the death penalty) for maintaining the state within its current borders (in order to avoid the desire to distribute - to sell off the territories and lands of Russia)
        4. To oblige the government to develop the industry of Russia - to adopt a program for the construction of plants and factories for the production of basic goods (for example, 1 enterprises per year with the provision of 1000-2 thousand jobs each
        5. Legislatively establish the accountability of the president, prime minister, heads of both parliaments, and heads of ministries to the people. (To the People’s Assembly. To the People’s Control Committee ...
        In short, to screw up everyone and everything! It's time to put in place the snickering bureaucrats.
        And the president, Vladimir Putin, if he has a conscience, will immediately take measures to restore order!
        We give him a credit of trust.
        By the way, thieves will be against! Thieves need to "chop Bosko" ...
        Ready to go to work "executioner" part-time. And even on a voluntary basis ...
        Well, how much can people, ordinary Russian people turn their heads?
        I personally do not believe a gram of the current government and legislators.
        It is time to appoint from the common people to any leadership positions at least in the regions. The people see all the "charms" of the current bureaucratic lawlessness and mediocrity ...

        In order for the population to be able to invest, it must first be made solvent, and for it to be solvent, a fair redistribution of benefits is needed until the state thinks that increasing salaries, payments, and a reduction in% of the loan will spur inflation and there will be no crisis; these people will pay, buy and live, and accordingly there will be economic growth.

      And actually, how should it be under capitalism? It may be that in general pensions will not be, only if the citizen does not bother to accumulate.
      Well, imagine another government will come. Or, in general, other people, as many here crave.
      Do you think there will be pensions or some other social successes following the example of the late USSR?
      No, they will not.
      There will be a collapse of the country. And then, perhaps, after several generations, in some kind of small country on the former territory of Russia, a social network will suddenly appear ...

    . Last week, a statement was made from the mouth of Finance Minister Anton Siluanov that the funds of the Russian Reserve Fund would be exhausted by the end of this year.

    A very disturbing event. The economist Hestanov, the author of the financial methods, argues that the ruble exchange rate depends not only on the price of oil, but is also directly dependent on the amount of financial resources that the government can operate on. Therefore, after the exhaustion of the reserve fund, there will be a natural depreciation of the ruble. Hi, a dollar for 70-80 rubles!

      The fund was in currency. And they spent it mainly on purchases abroad, for currency. There are no currencies in the country, due to the fact that banks stopped lending to Russia because of the threat of sanctions against them. That is, there is no "cheap" currency that could be obtained from European and American banks at 3,5-5,6% per annum. There is only an “expensive” Chinese currency (not a yuan, namely a currency like the dollar and the euro from Chinese banks) at 7,5-12% per annum. And it’s impossible to buy this currency for rubles — at least get these rubles stamped. She just is not for rubles. Currency can be obtained only by exchanging part of its natural resources for it and receiving it as tax and other fiscal payments from Western companies that operate in Russian jurisdictions (and there are fewer and fewer ones). Ruble inflation mainly depends on the inflationary growth of natural monopolies and the appetites of these monopolies budgeted for the budget to compensate for their costs and appetites associated with the growth of their profits.

      You are absolutely right, it was so in the USSR. But, the Russian ruble, unfortunately, due to grief to reformers such as Gaidar and Kudrin, depends on the dollar, oil, and savings. Only the deaf did not hear about this, and our government, which does nothing to change the situation.

      But seriously, the Reserve Fund spent on supporting banks and ambitious, but for the most part useless or little useful projects. The banking sector has turned into a black hole and a bottomless gap in which huge government money is irretrievably lost. Over the past three years, 3,2 trillion rubles have been spent on supporting commercial banks. Of the 32 banks that received assistance from the state, only half recorded an actual increase in capital, said Tatyana Golikova, head of the Accounts Chamber in December. Every second bank lost all the allocated money, and only 4% let it go for declared goals - lending to priority projects in the economy. All this is more like another scam, under the strict guidance of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance.

    Recently, a statement was voiced by the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov that by the end of this year the funds of the Russian Reserve Fund will be exhausted.
    AHAHAH! Everything is gone !!!
    For reference: At 1 January 2013 in the Reserve Fund of the Russian Federation was 1 trillion 885 billion rubles. At 1 November this year, about 975 billion rubles was stored.
    According to the law, one can buy foreign currency using the funds of the fund (it is stored on the accounts of the Central Bank) and financial assets (debt obligations of foreign states, international financial organizations, etc.). The list of countries on whose debt securities the Russian stash can be spent is strictly limited - the USA, Canada and several EU countries.
    Funds from the Russian stabilization fund are invested: 50% - in bonds of foreign states, 20% - in bonds of foreign state agencies and the Central Bank, 20% - in deposits and 10% - in bonds of international financial organizations.
    So, by schematizing and simplifying:
    1. It was -1 trillion 885 billion rubles. At the ruble exchange rate 30-32 rubles per dollar.
    It remains - 975 billion rubles, at the rate of 59 p. for a dollar.
    By the end of the year it is planned - 0.
    2. At the same time, the price of oil has risen from 30 bucks (January 2016) to 64's now.
    3. All funds (LAW !!!!) were stored in dollars and other assets controlled by the West.
    4. All the liberals howled together, well, that’s it! Russia is tearing to pieces! There’s nothing to pay a pension.
    5. Since 2013, the Russian gold reserve has increased by 500, these are official figures, which are calculated based on purchases on the international gold market.
    But at the same time, at least 250-300 tons are mined annually in Russia itself. And they are purchased by the central bank. It is clear. Nobody will tell me the real amount .....
    6. Our oligarchs really started bidding on the terms of returning their funds under the Russian roof. And when the rats flee from the ship, this is a sure sign of ass.
    The situation is similar with China, but it has a lot more extra bucks, because it has long been buying up all the assets of the real sector around the world (shares of real enterprises, not securities), especially paying attention to the mining industry and ports. And especially in Africa.

    Conclusion: Russia and China smoothly, so as not to bring down the dollar, which means not to depreciate their investments, withdraw funds from the dollar (GKO).
    The Chinese yuan has become the reserve currency, and oil and gold futures trading is launched on Chinese exchanges.
    Moreover, the proceeds from the sale of oil, the yuan, can immediately be converted into gold. in fact, oil begins to sell for gold.
    If this comes true, there will be only two options for the United States:
    1. Destroy China.
    2. Surrender. And become a second-rate country.
    Judging by Trump’s ambition and the situation with Korea, the U.S. is choosing the 2 option.
    And if so, then money must be withdrawn from the GKO of the USA.
    And the size of the fund here is clearly not an indicator.

    You know, it’s funny for me as an engineer to listen to and read all this chip about “gold reserves” and “currency funds”. This all falls into the logic of the rentier, who has fed something with “great works” and is ready to live “accumulated.” This is not an option. If we were to develop our cadres and our industry, then all these candy wrappers would be unnecessary to us and would serve simply as units of account like a meter and a kilogram. But we have our own pride, sorry, reverence for cut paper and metal ingots, like the old woman-worker, who can only multiply by the percentage due to her. It is not for nothing that our grandfathers composed the tale of Koschey, who wasting away over gold. Exactly what is languishing over gold, not daring to invest these funds in real life.

    Our railway troops are already very good. They haven’t built anything for a long time, so these 137 km in 3 years are an achievement. The Germans recently launched the high-speed (up to 200 km / h) railway Berlin-Munich, with a length of about 780 km. So they built it for 26 years !!! 30 km per year on average, in the center of resources and roads of Europe! That is, our Railway Troops (year-old conscripts!) Gave them a head start of 1,5 years on our UNSYSTEM relief and climate! Everything is relative. Successfully replacing the railway track with the so-called the "velvet path" on the Trans-Siberian Railway, and without stopping the growing movement - 3 km per day on average change. About a third of the road is already with an updated "velvet" rail. But under Yeltsiniks, I know cases when rails from Japan were carried by planes - by God, it was like that!

It is more difficult to come up with a more stupid application than putting it in a bottle, and even someone else's. Money should work.
    For a second: The Reserve Fund is placed in highly liquid foreign currency or assets denominated in foreign currency.
    Now remember where we have such highly liquid assets? It seems to me or is it Treasure? And what's wrong if we throw them ALL, and even with this money we will build something at home?

    What is needed is not a reserve fund, but an investment of money so that they bring money again.

    Example: everyone is happy that they built railways around Ukraine. Invested a billion dollars, and this allows you to save 200 Lama dollars a year !!!
    Those. having invested money, our state actually received a return in 20% per annum in bucks !!!
    Question: What the hell were waiting for 2015 of the year? Why didn’t they invest loot before, but fed Ukraine? Why did the United States feed all these years by investing loot at 1% per annum when they could receive 20% ???

      Moreover, they invested “inside the country”, and did not buy something over the hill, or worse — in Fed wrappers with a yield of less than 3%. This means that the money remained inside the system (state). And again they will return to the budget, but at the same time will create a real increase .. In contrast to lending to banks, which will also buy currency and scroll money.
