It stood, it stood, but it slowed down

The Russian economy is growing slower than the world - less than 2% against 3. Including 1% slower than the main "partner", the USA, and yet this "partner" is already at a sky-high level, for us. This is one of our main problems. A more developed and larger state, sooner or later, will find ways to neutralize all the efforts of the less developed. And if we take into account the scale of the export of capital from Russia, including just money to foreign shareholders, do we have growth? There are too many foreign holders of shares in our largest companies, too many foreigners on the boards of directors of these companies. Rather, those countries where capital is exported are growing additionally. Once again, I draw attention to the fact that an increase in the number of cars in homes does not mean economic growth. Just at a certain stage in the development of society, even in the absence of growth, wealth will accumulate - production is ahead of consumption.



Now have a little patience. There was such an animal behavior specialist, Conrad Lorenz. He drew attention to the behavior of higher animals. At a certain age, a young animal chooses its owner, an example to follow, a model of behavior. And if at that time there was a wonderful example nearby (from our point of view), then the cub will grow up with excellent behavior. This is quite explainable by evolution - an individual should not learn everything from scratch, there is no time, it is more profitable to take an example from a higher neighbor. I reasonably believe that this also applies to people in many ways. And not just teenagers. If a person took place in a certain field of activity, then it is extremely difficult for him to fit almost the opposite. That is why it is necessary to pay special attention to the training and education of young people. That is why the educator, teacher are representatives of the basic areas of activity. And that is why a good foreman and a good team need years to correct a trashy young man who has fallen into the team.



In 2016, a new Minister of Economic Development, Maxim Oreshkin, appeared. 1982 year of birth, Master of Higher School of Economics. 2002 - 2013 economist ... chief economist of the Central Bank, Rosbank, Credit Agricole Bank, VTB Capital. 2013 - 2015 Director of the Department of the Ministry of Finance (the Ministry of Finance, where, roughly speaking, they save, but do not directly deal with the creation and production). 2015 - 2016 Deputy Minister of Finance. 2016 - Minister of Economic Development. Epithets according to Oreshkin - creative; smart; brave; classy macroeconomist, etc. I’m looking for what he created, in which he distinguished himself and again: smart, bold, creative, competent, working on creating “... a ministry of the future with strong personalities ...”. Well, enlighten the masses that he created! Do not enlighten. And of the 13 ministers in the Ministry of Economic Development, only 1 (ONE!), The miner Nazarov, was associated with production. And for three years now, Oreshkin has been waiting for a breakthrough in the economy as Minister of Economics. And what has fundamentally changed is that in 2017 the federal state statistics service entered the structure of the Ministry of Economic Development. This is comparable to the subordination of the service of the chief accountant of the enterprise to the head of one of the shops.

Who is the banker? Even a very good banker, what is Oreshkin possibly? Not the one that snapped billions of our dollars into Sberbank in Ukraine after the Maidan, where they safely disappeared for us. And having done such things, well, why should he in the zero of his aircraft industry, it is better to buy Boeing and Airbus. And fearlessly, without consequences, he called Russia a downshifter country, as if he had nothing to do with the country's development. So, even a very good banker is engaged in a two-pronged task - to buy cheaper (open deposits at a small percentage), sell more expensive (give a loan at a large percentage). A banker is a financier. And the financier is not an economist at all! Not to produce, not to build, not to substitute a shoulder, but only to buy-sell, buy-sell. It was not for nothing that there were engineers, engineering and economics departments before. But there was no engineering and financial, since it is almost like engineering and thimble. And to put even a good banker on the development of the country's economy is cool! It's like asking a poodle to find a squirrel in the taiga. He had already taken place in a completely different field, he chose a model of behavior. Can't you find Primakov, Maslyukov, Gerashchenko from the 150 millions who pulled Russia out of the 1998 year? After all, these "effective managers" got it.

I have more leftist views than Zyuganov’s, but I already agree that even billionaires, but patriots, if only from manufacturing (but by no means raw materials!) Companies and holdings began to steer. I think there are such. Well, these will not be appointed Minister of Economics, and not only economics, without steps: technical university - master - beginning section / workshop - chief engineer / director. I agree to the patriotic general, but who began his service as a platoon commander not in the capitals. And only after positive results of work everywhere. And when fulfilling the requirement: the more responsibilities, the more rights, but also more responsibility. And those who didn’t manage not to move horizontally one or two steps lower, but to drive (often not able to manage and taken off becomes a vengeful and dangerous enemy to remove him and the whole team). I believe that in industry there are those who will give a hundred points to the current ministers. I want the economy to be dealt with by those who ensure annual growth of at least 7%, otherwise there are such sky-high payments, who are ready to answer publicly for every promise they make, who will despise the owners and passengers of thousand-ton yachts. In the meantime, we are lagging behind the main "partner" more and more.
And two jokes and one cool expression. 1. We are told that our economy has slowed down. What is it like? She practically stood, stood, and suddenly she also slowed down? 2. Two ministers reason: - Listen, do you understand what is going on in our economy? - Come on, I'll explain to you. “I can explain it myself, but do you at least understand something?”

      This phrase is fully consistent with our system of government, which originated under Yeltsin and flourished under Putin. Rampant nepotism, corruption, lack of a personnel lift in positions above the leading specialist. Putin only recently began to understand what he had done and gave to saw Kiriyenko and his "Leaders of Russia" staff, he was 5 years late. The system is changing sooooo slowly, unfortunately. We will see Kiriyenko's results only in 3-5 years. Dragged - will become the next president, no - will go into political oblivion.

        I would like to have a drink with the author - "for the economy." An honest article: both on an overview of the situation, and on one of the key problems, and on those that do not offer their own recipes. Because what else can we do except blow off steam with sarcastic jokes or hack with such an article? The rowers are not interested in our proposals. They are not even interested in our work, judging by the pondering of a 4-day work week.

      The author removed the question from the language. I always thought: our own production is not developing, but there is a ministry of economic development. What does it develop? Looking for investors? Which, having built, say, a factory for the production of CNC machine tools in our country, will send most of the revenue first to Germany, from there a part to Japan, a small part will be unfastened to the Russian directors, a little to the workers, otherwise they would not have been built, and within 7 years They will pay Russia an insignificant tax under the law on foreign investments, and even agreed not to share the secrets of technology with us - they already took the subscription!
      Well, you understand that I mean the plant in Yekaterinburg, the Okuma Corporation concern, which entered into an alliance with the Russian LLC Pumbri-SIZ through the German branch of the Japanese Okum Europe CmbH.

In 2013, with a oil price of $ 110 per barrel, our budget was scarce. And in 2018 - surplus of 2,6% of GDP at a price of $ 70 dollars per barrel, balanced - at a price of $ 56-59. ”

        The plant was working, everything was fine and "suddenly": there was no money for wages; there is no money for the purchase of materials and components; products stopped buying .....
        But why "suddenly" ?! Where was the production director looking with the staff of the best production workers? Why did you bring it to "suddenly"? Photos of ruined workshops: who demolished and handed over to scrap machines - is it not "members of the labor collective"?
        So why appoint bankers guilty?
        And after all, not all enterprises were destroyed (fortunately!) To the foundation - did some manage to save some (with jobs and salaries), organize production of demanded products, gain a foothold in the market, and even send them for export? Who is this ?! - Yes, these are the so-now despised millionaire oligarchs! Is not it?!
        And the wise production workers, "red directors", have managed to turn such high-tech enterprises of the military-industrial complex into garbage! Because of their own incompetence and deep arrogance!

          And what could a production director do?
          There was a woodworking enterprise: successful, developing, products with unlimited demand. It was destroyed. It all started with a lack of money supply. In the USSR, cash was available for retail sale. No money was printed for industrial and technical products. When the plan was canceled and the products went to the free market, there was not enough money. A situation was created when the operating enterprise could not pay the salary, there was no money on the account. They began to analyze: the amount of debt is less than the amount of funds not received. We carried out a "netting", the enterprises started working again for a while and the situation repeated itself: again a card index with a positive balance. Instead of offsetting, they offered to solve problems by contacting commercial banks. They had money (where did the state give out cheap money?), At 200% per annum. There is no such profitability in production. And then the balance became negative. The company went bankrupt. Naturally, all "ineffective" leaders were removed. And the "effective" managers of investment funds came, who had no money. The new owners did not bring money, they began to sell the necessary goods in the store at the enterprise. So the wage arrears were paid off. In my eyes, for the period from 60s to 80s That is, the enterprise drowning in mud under the leadership of Soviet production workers turned into a backbone enterprise of the ministry with a powerful social sphere, including providing the team and social institutions with food 2) from the 90s to the present day, workshops, a boiler house became unusable, the social sphere was destroyed Payment for utilities makes up a significant part of the expenses of most residents, and systematic outages for all types of services due to repairs.If earlier, with a low salary, people received almost free a lot of social services, now, with modest incomes, the population was obliged to maintain and to develop the communal sector, endless ineffective repairs at the expense of the population is the achievement of an effective manager s, a means to increase the number of millionaires. And where is the economy here?

        Capital has no homeland. Classics of the genre


        It depends on which capital. In the states, for some reason, capital is not taken to the Sberbank. For some reason, there is no homeland for capital, only among the countries of the periphery of raw material capitalism.
        Secondly, the withdrawal of capital can be limited, as Primakov did, pulling the country out of default. but there are rules called the Washington Consensus, and so liberals abide by these rules.
        Thus, the withdrawal of capital is organized by the Central Bank and the RF Ministry of Finance. Which proves that Russia is a colony of the West.

    Just at a certain stage in the development of society, even in the absence of growth, wealth will accumulate - production is ahead of consumption.

    Yes? And I remember something that this is called not the accumulation of wealth, but a crisis of overproduction. And the accumulation crisis is never even close ...
    And further. Economic growth is possible with a sales market. Poke your finger where such a sales market is, where the Russian Federation is expected, and which in capacity is able to give a growth in demand for any product from the Russian Federation at 7% per year. Any products, even hypothetical?
    And then we can talk about bankers. Which are not needed at all by the Ministry of Economic Development, despite the fact that the banking sector reform is in full swing, started around 2012, and entered the working rhythm only in 2016, when a significant enlargement of banks began. And the reform of the banking sector is caused solely by the fact that when a country and a half thousand SMALL banks with registered capital with a mouse mink, it is impossible to open ANY production larger than a stall in the country - no one is physically able to give money to start production. And this despite the tendency towards the enlargement of banks in Europe, they can give this money, but they will order music - that is, they will give the outflow of capital from the country that the author is so sad about.
    And why is the banker in the ministers, when the number one task is to reform the banking sector, without which there will be no industry? Only state-owned enterprises can be?

        It seems to me that economic growth is a somewhat crafty concept, like average salary
        For example, if we will produce the same amount of hydrocarbons, and the price will be $ 100 per barrel, is this growth or not quite growth? Or is it a prerequisite for an increase in imports with all the consequences for domestic enterprises? Or a prerequisite for investing in foreign securities?
        It is naive to think that the Russian Federation will grow, selling planes, tractors, etc. abroad. There is a clear example of China.
        Economic growth must be domestic. Due to large infrastructure projects, due to import substitution, due to
        that the money of the "dzhamshuts" should be earned by our citizens. And also due to the fact that a young Russian should dream of working not as a manager in an office, but as a cool specialist in a workshop or at a construction site.

        D. Ricardo proceeded from the idea that the overproduction of all goods at once is impossible, because human needs are unlimited. In this case, the manufacturer sells his goods only when he wants to purchase another product. Therefore, each product represents a market for other products.

      It’s very simple, the market is in the Russian Federation itself (and in the customs union), the Russian Federation can produce some of the imported goods on its own and buy at home, which will give jobs to the Russians, this is called import substitution. The same Britain, began its journey to the empire, with the crowding out of foreign merchants from its island. But the government is sabotaging import substitution, and in the liberal media the word import substitution is abusive. Without the removal of liberals from power, the development of the Russian Federation is impossible.

    And yes, about production growth ...
    With a total nominal volume of Russia's GDP of $ 1,63 trillion, the size of our exports is 444 billion, of which "everything except energy" forms a share of about 40% (about 177,6 billion dollars). This is because in the current form of organization of the national economy, foreign markets form only 10,8% of the Russian economy.
    Translated into simple Russian - with all the talk about our openness, Russia is still trying to live relying solely on the capacity of the domestic market. And he, alas, is almost close to exhaustion.

    Put the producer in the Ministry of Economic Development. He will achieve an increase in the release of conditional Superjets by 1000%. So what? Nowhere to sell, but the workers have to pay. The result - bankruptcy and LIQUIDATION of aircraft manufacturing in the country. Because the minister knows how to set up production, he is a cool economist!

        How do you market these same SSJs? Will you require airlines to buy them? There will be no sales, no production is needed.

          How do you market these same SSJs?

          Not only SSJ but also for example the heir to the AN-2 called TVS2-TS.
          It is catastrophically necessary to recreate lost regional and local airports! According to various estimates in Russia, in comparison with the RSFSR, the number of regional and local ports decreased by 1 units !!! Well, albeit they lie and not 000 but 1000, but this is a HUGE number!
          The state task is to recreate these very ports, subsidize leasing of DOMESTIC aircraft, and in many cases subsidize local and / or regional passenger flights. Under these conditions, the demand for conditional SSJ will be constant and stable.
          Something like this.

            Not only SSJ but also for example the heir to the AN-2 called TVS2-TS.

            Once Poghosyan assured that he would make such an aircraft (SSJ) that 15% of all machines will be operated in the domestic Russian market, and 85% will be sold abroad.
            At the moment, it is not needed abroad; it is operated in the Russian Federation. But, the antimonopoly service of the Russian Federation found that the cost of flying on it is 20% more expensive, which the airlines explained by its rare flights due to breakdowns.
            Italy refused to buy the previously announced SSJ batch. Italy is a co-producing country.
            The cost of TVS2-TS is overstated (3 million S), and in the presence of already existing proven aircraft, this aircraft may not be in demand on the market. "Cessna-208" costs 2.5 million and does not pay off.
            The high price, high leasing payments, high operating costs and low capacity (according to the rules of the Federal Air Transport Agency on a single-engine aircraft can carry no more than 9 passengers) make the operation of this type of aircraft economically unprofitable. With expensive tickets there are no passengers, and with low tickets there is not enough revenue to cover milestone expenses. Breakeven operation requires large subsidies on airline tickets. But the federal budget does not subsidize intra-regional transportation, and the regions simply have no money.
            In addition, the plane will not be anything Russian. Engine American, American screw, American avionics. They refused the Russian composite - expensive. The Italian seems to have decided to use the composite, but information came, though unofficial, that the Italian company was sold to the Japanese, and now it is not clear what will happen to the price. A lot of problems, including how parts will be delivered, where the aircraft will be repaired, and what plants will be repaired.

              Absolutely everything the problems you described are True! All this, a very large and separate topic.
              At the same time, all these problems can and should be solved, and this is quite real. But again, this is a separate topic for discussion.
              All the same, in the context of the discussion, we are talking about CONDITIONAL SSJ. In reality, it can be another aircraft altogether. And the conditional SSJ is taken as an example, but in general we can talk about any product in the context of the development of production and the economy as a whole.

      Nowhere to sell, but the workers have to pay

      And for example, build all kinds of machines, rollers, bulldozers, trucks, the Russian Federation buys equipment in large volumes, i.e. in the Russian Federation itself, it’s not a small market for machinery, but this market has been given to foreigners, and its tractor plants are bankrupt. And the WTO and the liberals are to blame.
      By the way there is a massive importation of Chinese trucks, as if KAMAZ did not go bankrupt. But all of you have no market, there are markets, there is no nationally oriented government.
      Airplanes need to start to be manufactured with regional aircraft, in Russia there is a huge need for regionalists, a large market, they cannot efficiently develop markets, they cannot create production, they can only seize and divide.

    Maybe we don’t know what, because we are NOT allowed to ...
    But still a couple of comments:
    1. Why is the country catastrophically NOT enough money in the economy? Not dollars or euros, but RUBLES not enough?
    Who can explain this? Well, a couple of three facts that say that there should simply be VERY many rubles, based on the classical economy:
    - Foreign currency earnings (all exports, including raw materials), denominated in dollars / euros, did not decrease, compared to 2014. But the exchange rate against the ruble has grown! Accordingly - Where is the increase in the ruble mass?
    - The cost of importing agricultural products fell significantly (this is a fact) and the domestic volume of its production increased. Where's the money?
    - The gloating liberals say that they are financing Crimea, therefore there is no money. This is not entirely true, for Crimea as part of Russia and money remain in the country's economy.
    2. Who and in general WHY invented the mantra "FIGHT inflation"? What does this very struggle lead to .. And to the fact that the Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development are doing EVERYTHING in order to squeeze lending, complicate the financing of production and national projects, and just get a loan for a small and medium-sized entrepreneur ...

    Well, after all, everything is elementary - For the development of the economy, money, freedom of entrepreneurship and preferences for small / medium-sized businesses are needed. Financing road construction, protectionism regarding real production, etc. That is what Primakov did with his team in 1998, and we observed positive results until 2014.
    In principle, I wrote the main thing.

It seems to me that the problem is on the ground in the regions, given the incompetence and incompetence of our governors in matters of the economy, in intrigues they have become skilled and have not learned to become strong business executives. An example from life I observe how the head of the Tambov region feverishly began to master the budget this year within the framework of national projects, everything is just the next year for him to be re-elected, and take the head of the Belgorod region, which has been working systematically for more than 20 years, albeit with some reservations

      The total amount of free cash balances on bank accounts throughout the country reached 42 trillion rubles or (drum roll!) 43,2% of Russian GDP. So there really is money in the country.

          And I think, think ... And I read. You, apparently, did not read the answer. There, by the way, it is indicated, Yu, why your offers do not. If in a nutshell - no small-scale private traders - nifiga will not help you boost the economy, but the crisis of liberalism, that is, a market economy is observed in the world. The market has been replaced by protectionism, and the small ones, due to their small-scale integration, will NOT be lobbyed by anyone, and they will fly into the pipe with any support from the state. There is a good example in the article about milk, such a concrete one.
          Still, I recommend the article to which I referred - to read. And then the point once in your first post is a direct mistake, under paragraph 2 - I answered you, everything is spinning on the domestic market that has already hit the ceiling, but it has nowhere to grow stupidly, according to paragraph 3 - see above in this post ...

            God bless him with a small and generally any business. Just a fact - the level of RUB rubles in the field of defense, state security, etc. over the past 5 years has fallen by about 20%. These are not statistics, but simply personal observations based on the social circle.

Are there anyone who lacks milk? Here you have it ... Um, an example ... Up to a penny - the MARKET specifically for milk inside the Russian Federation is saturated. Invest ... Develop ... There is no sense, there will be no growth. The market is over.
              It remains to develop only NOT the market, as discussed in the article. For example, a specific example, this is already not there. With the same milk - it can be driven to China, there is always a shortage of food, but how? And only through the lobby from the government, creating large corporations, the private trader will not stupidly get out of the Chinese market if he sits, for example, in Tver. And milk just can’t get it. But this is not the market already.

      “Sacred cows” of our economy:

      Budget consolidation (budget surplus over 3% of GDP).
      Tight monetary policy (the key rate of the Central Bank is 7,25%).
      Inflation targeting (forecast - 4,3% for the year).
      The accumulation of reserves (the volume of the NWF is almost 8 trillion rubles).
      Never before in the history of modern Russia has tight budget and monetary policy been such an absolute priority for the authorities. After the 2008 crisis, the Kremlin acted in exactly the opposite way: valorized pensions, preventing real incomes from falling at the cost of a budget deficit of 10% of GDP over two years. And now the state’s priorities are strictly defensive and mobilization in nature.
      The key problem is that the structure of the current government is not set up for development. Everything in it is subject to the preservation of stability.

    And who convinced us that liberal ministers and economists do not know how. The question is different: where are they trying? And then we all talk, talk, and then suddenly we become hostages to cannibals. Kremlin sitters, oligarchs (i.e., rich grabbers), and all other liberals are underestimated. Liberals are not grabbers, and money does not mean everything to them. Rather, they are fighters with world evil, by which they mean Russia. And the liberals are waging this struggle not for life, but for death. Therefore, they methodically destroy its economy (real), history, science, culture, the army, school and in general everything that makes our country Russia. They fight it, not sparing our stomach. And, who knows, maybe his own too. How much money did Kudrin steal as finance minister? In any case, less than it withdrew from Russia to American securities. And if Kudrin and his supporters are faced with the choice of personal enrichment or mortification of Russia, they will most likely choose the latter. And do not be mistaken about their softness. Especially when the liberals hold the keys to the treasury and the White House. We are all soft-bodied towards them. It is we who are embarrassed to defend ourselves, to uphold our legal right to life and the country. And they openly dig a grave for us, and are absolutely not afraid of anything. This is composure!

      Mother Nadezhda Nikitina is a professor at Moscow State University of Civil Engineering. Elder brother Vladislav is an investment banker and a senior official of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation
      Laureate of the 2016 Higher School of Economics Golden Hub award in the Graduate Success nomination
      here he whinnied at the top of his lungs - the name of the HSE award was Golden HSE. The founding fathers came up with the idea (they remembered that financial abuses in especially large ones were execution articles in the USSR - "tower")

    Graduates and graduates of the Higher School of Economics, who praise the fat gaidar who robbed the people, should not be allowed closer than 200 km to the Russian government! Better yet, they should put their "economic theories of the market" into practice in Kolyma. preferably in labor camps with guards and barbed wire fences, and certainly energized !!!

    Not the one that snapped billions of our dollars in Sberbank in Ukraine after the Maidan, where they safely disappeared for us
    the author means Grefa (as I understand it). I want to remind you that "Sberbank" is primarily a state bank (52.32% from the state). after the Maidan there was a video in which Putin talked with Kostin (VTB 60.9% of the state) and urged him to continue lending to Ukrainian citizens.
    VTB Supervisory Board decided to capitalize the Ukrainian subsidiary bank for 2 billion 580 million hryvnia. This is neither more nor less than 99 million dollars. This is stated in the information materials of the Russian state bank. 24 April 2018 19:20 / Economics

    nevertheless, a short-sighted state policy prevails

    Only a catastrophe will save Russia when all the rats go to the place of their second citizenship and leave us to their fate. Only in this short period of time will we have a chance to revive. In the meantime, the team of GDP and DA is satisfied with everything.

    Putin has always had problems with the choice of personnel. Apparently he was a bad scout too ...

    Yes, and there’s no one to shoot, all of his own, like grandfather Krylov, where you won’t put Mutko, he’s everywhere Mutko.

    Less than 3% stagnation, and stable, enough to talk about growth at 1-2%, growth is over 6%, all that is less than zero compensation, "sucking" 1,5%; 0,7%; 0,1%, makes no sense, the magnitude of the error. The question is obvious and clear throughout the world, growth of less than 5% causes strong concern and a partial change of cabinet, and less than 3, an unambiguous dismissal and change of government, and even with a kick to accelerate, and in China, you can easily stand up to the wall, only us 1,5% is delighted and means an increase in salaries of bureaucrats. Apparently, only our guarantor is not yet clear that a family contract from a diligent graduate of the Yale school and the hubby of the head of the Sorovskaya (FRS) office of the HSE Blue Rita office will die, but they will not allow the development and growth of our country's economy, not for this they purposefully destroyed the education system and education, academic science, leading sectors of the economy and enterprises of the former world power, brought up several generations of "advanced" consumers under the "sensitive" guidance of a redhead, destroying the creative and cultural heritage of the once great people.

    Rampant nepotism, corruption, lack of a personnel lift in positions above the leading specialist. Putin only recently began to understand what he had done and gave to saw Kiriyenko and his "Leaders of Russia"

    "Corruption exposures of United Russia"

    In the suburbs, the court seized property from 9 billion rubles. Among the seized are 1700 real estate, 5 billion rubles, as well as 4 cars. The Postrigany case has shown that every year there are fewer untouchables. Including among the representatives of the so-called party of power ...
