        But “concrete people” do not invest on behalf of the state, it is better to invest this money in your own state or, at worst, invest in the securities of another more adequate country, albeit with less profitable co-incentive, than lose everything altogether! Because sooner or later these funds will be frozen.

        So far, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation - a branch of the Fed, will be controlled by those who print this dollar.

        So I see the dialogue:
        GDP - Why are we holding so much in Treasury? We are in a state of cold war!
        Nabiullina - Come on, Vladimir, what’s the matter for you, are we a subsidiary of the FR ?! We'll figure it out ourselves.

        Respected Ross xnumx, and if you try to recount a little these specific people and their organization, you get:
        - Pension Fund
        - Compulsory Health Insurance Fund ...
        They do not work, as it should be according to the commandments of certain K. Marx and F. Engels, providing capital turnover and financing of new enterprises, but cover the external USA. And after that, one very responsible kid says "no money, hold on."

      For two years, systematically reduced from 125 billion to 93,8 billion

      If I am not mistaken, then these billions lie under 2% pa and the United States pays interest on time. This year, the United States will pay countries lenders 1 trillion dollars. Five years ago this figure was 700 billion dollars a year.

              It is even funnier with treasurers, but according to the classics about 300%, we give at 1% - we get "at state-owned companies" 4.5% for those 450% of profit

      The Russian ruble is a candy wrapper replacing the dollar. Dollars are bought for export goods, frozen, and the mass of the ruble is issued at the volume and rate. Those. The value of the ruble is determined not by the quantity of goods that can be bought for it, but by the number of dollars in the stockpile (US securities).
      This situation can be eliminated only by changing the Constitution. Then, instead of the foreign commercial CentroBank, the State Bank of Russia will be created, with the normal issuing of the ruble in terms of the volume of the domestic commodity market.

            Putin constantly talked about resolving issues that are impossible without changing the Constitution. He actively advocates for the sovereignty of Russia. And the change of the main law is only the first point in this direction.
            But for this reform, a referendum is necessary. And while not a very large part of the population is ready to support him. The topic of the referendum is very much blocked at the media level.

                Putin is known to be very respectful of the Constitution. But it changes periodically. Some of the issues can be easily changed with a parliamentary constitutional majority. For simple questions - this is not a problem. The parliamentarians of the patriotic and liberal camps easily find consensus.
                But part of the state foundations in the Constitution can only be changed in the constitutional assembly (which is not, because there is no law) or by referendum. The current need for change lies in this area.

The balance of internal power does not change here and therefore you will not hear Putin’s fears.

                        I hope that you are a competent, cultured person and write last names with a capital letter.
                        You confuse deterrence and the outbreak of hostilities (democratization). Now Russia is walking along the razor's edge, with a severe limitation of its capabilities. This is due to the correlation of economic opportunities, the ability to conduct hostilities in several directions (Americans assess 2 major conflicts). War is an economy, and you cannot argue with that.
                        The war is already underway (even earlier than the events in Ukraine). US open provocations in Syria. So in Armenia, the hot phase has begun. Kazakhstan is next in line.
                        Russia resists ... to a minimum (more precisely, to the maximum of its economic opportunities).
                        As for Putin and the Constitution ... We look forward to the inauguration, the new composition of the government. It is easy to trace how each of its terms changes the level of decisions. and the number of pseudo liberals at the top.

      The mattress bonds are quite profitable, this is firstly. And secondly, it is a very convenient financial instrument. Especially with the latest Trump lunges. When they decided to collapse the ruble. We even won on the devaluation, the yield on securities increased. Naturally our gesheft was very decent. And then everyone thought, our sworn friends. We still won. So that is not so simple. And then a week later, we again won back our positions.

          Well, firstly, if their financial system can be used as a field of financial war, these are quite reasonable arguments. And secondly, there is the bulk of government investment. And this is a very serious financial instrument. It is simply not profitable for them to lower financial markets. And we learned very well how to use it. We learned from them, and now we use it against them.

      I’ll explain it on my fingers: for example, hold a small bread shop. This is the economy. You have trays of bread. This is a production. And there is a cash register with bills inside. Suppose banknotes of 100 rubles - this is zvr, 1000 rubles - American treasuries, 2000 - ofz, 5000 - rubles, etc. You need them for change and other operating expenses. You can empty the cash desk and put a couple more trays of bread for this amount. Extra profit! Only in reality there is nothing to carry out operational activities, there is nothing to give change to customers, customers are not eager to run to exchange bills, it is easier for them to go to another store around the corner ...
      This is me to the fact that money is not stored in the treasury in the household sense of the word. I opened a deposit, and the money is there. No, they are constantly sold when dollars are needed, and bought when the momentary expenses are not large and there is an opportunity to get coupon income from bonds. Like a cashier: at every moment in time, its contents change both quantitatively and qualitatively.

    Why do this? 100 billion bring a couple of billion percent per year.
    Do you propose keeping dollars in accounts so that they depreciate?
    Or, probably, as you propose to distribute some in the form of loans to our companies, of which the majority will not repay.
    And then when the state does it, and it will take billions of dollars here and now, where will they get it?

    We see people do not understand the main thing.
    If you have non-cash dollars, it doesn’t matter whether they are invested in bonds on the account, you keep them in the United States anyway, because this is the American currency.
    If you do not want to deal with the dollar in any way, then you should completely abandon it.

    If not, then it makes no sense to discuss in what form you use it.

    I am amazed at you people. Everything is so simple for you to buy a factory or a line.
    In the West, investment funds hire specialists for millions who can hardly find where to really invest money with minimal risk and good income, but it turns out that you need to go here to the forum and listen to you “specialists”.))
    Any production is a huge risk of complete bankruptcy.
    All niches in the market are occupied. Nobody will buy your fucking Elbrus in the world! But in Russia there is not enough market capacity to justify its production.
    You will only spend money in vain on its production, and you will remain with nothing.

    even if they throw off all available assets in dollars one time on the dollar, it will not affect the wrong amount, so we need to be guided only by our own profit, we won’t be able to harm them, China can really bring down the dollar, only the first is not profitable for him

    "Over the past year, Russia made the largest investments in May - $ 108,7 billion."
    "reports RIA Novosti."
    A link to the article is weak, liars are useless?

    It is difficult for a Russian person without a higher economic education to understand such an unbridled desire for American government bonds. It is probably right to invest money in your industry, but it is useless to give this money to banks, as banks will immediately buy dollars and will sit on them. For example, in West Germany, after the war, money was given for the development of specific industries through banks and banks had only their own small margins and did not have the right to use this money at their discretion. And as a result, industrial production increased by 40% relative to the pre-war level. To use such a mechanism, our Central Bank needs to “move its brains”, which is not easy. It’s easier to drive money into the development of the American economy.

    Machine tool building, that's where you need to invest. To do this, you need a lot of money, but for now guess which machines make the propellers for the submarines?


    That is, to build a plant worth billions, still spend millions on production, so that only in your own country will you sell a few units worth tens of millions?
    Any economist will tell you that in this case it is more profitable to buy machine tools abroad.
    Attempting to produce anything and everything entails huge costs. Many things will cost much more than imported ones.
    If the population of Russia were at least 500 million, then it would be quite profitable to produce many things at home.

    For the whole of last year, Russia made the largest investments in May - $ 108,7 billion.

    author Do you speak Russian poorly or deliberately fool poor VO readers?
    This phrase means that in May, Russia bought $ 108,7 billion. IT'S A LIE
    Correctly so, the largest amount in treasuries on the balance sheet of the Central Bank was in the amount of $ 108,7 billion.
    DO YOU FEEL THE DIFFERENCE?
    Moderators where are you looking?
