Russian reforms of the 90s considered a tragedy even in the USA


Today, remembering with kind words the events that took place in our country at the end of the last century, let's say, is not accepted. The complementary assessments of that period can only be heard among the most inveterate liberals, for whom the collapse of totalitarianism is much more valuable than all the economic and social failures that accompanied the democratization of society. And yet - is it really impossible to find at least one or two positive ones among the numerous reforms of the 90s?


Price liberalization, a complete rejection of their state regulation, the invisible hand of the market ... As a result, not liberal, but predatory prices for the vast majority of consumer goods were obtained. We got the overflowed counters that we had dreamed about, but in addition, the main majority of our citizens got completely empty pockets. The fall in GDP and industrial production only from 1991 to 1995 by 20%, a decrease in the number of investments in 1991-1998 by 70%. There is nothing to say about the wildest hyperinflation, “burnt out” deposits on savings books. The ruble was denominated in 1998 1000 times.

The liberalization of foreign trade. This reform not only opened up opportunities for the sacking of the country, exporting beyond its pennies everything that had at least some value, but also became a killer of the national economy. The same light industry for some five to seven years has fallen by 90%! Russia was flooded with cheap consumer goods, which were brought into it from around the world, the domestic producer was completely buried under this rampart. The result is closed enterprises, impoverishment of people, an economy that for years has turned into a huge bazaar spreading all over the country.

Privatization. Here it’s hard to find censorship words at all. From 127 to 145 thousand (according to various estimates) state-owned enterprises that sailed into private hands for mere pennies, or even practically for nothing. A voucher scam that can be safely nominated for century fraud, at least in its scale and degree of cynicism. It is not for nothing that a biting name was born among the people: “privatization”. What did we get as a result? Again, ruined industry, unemployment, the colossal social stratification of society in the form of a crowd of hungry and angry people and a handful of nouveau riche. Crime in its most unbridled and dangerous forms. For years, the country has been balancing on the brink of civil war, sometimes this line, in fact, stepping over ...

This is not the moan of a reflective scoop. American economists P. Reddue and D. Glinsky once wrote a book under the eloquent title: “The Tragedy of Russian Reforms.” In it, by the way, they indicate that GDP and industrial production in Russia in 1992-1998 decreased more than in the USSR during the Great Patriotic War or in the USA during the Great Depression. Another American, just a historian, Stephen Cohen, defined the reforms of the 90s as “unprecedented stories Twentieth century economic disaster and demodernization of an entire country that occurred in peacetime. "

If we compare it with the Soviet Union, whose successor and direct successor to Russia, having gone through the hell of the 90s, the situation looks even worse. One of the 5 countries of the world that is able to fully provide itself with all types of raw materials and industrial products, without exception ... The first country in the world in terms of raw material base for the national economy, and the second in food production. All this was destroyed, swept away by the "reformers", who began to do things with the second world economy that in some couple of years (already by 1992) brought it down below the level of Latin America. But this was only the beginning.

In truth, if you can recall the 90s at least in some positive way, except that due to the fact that then there were a lot of good books and new great music. Well, even because the borders were “opened” and movement around the world became practically free. Nevertheless, all these things are unlikely to compensate for the emotions of that terrible period in the life of the country.

    Yeah. They consider it a tragedy, but they did not refuse to warm the pens.
    And then, how pleasant it is to watch the tragedy sitting overseas, drinking whiskey and reasoning “what went wrong there,” and rejoice that their geopolitical adversary has sunk into oblivion.

      Not only were their hands warmed, they essentially carried out these reforms .. hands of Chubais and others .. At the same time, many who organized the 90s still feel good and have an influence on domestic politics .. Until now, no one has suffered a punishment .. They ruined the country, sold everything at a cheap price, how many people died who did not fit into the market .. And that’s all, like water from a goose ..

        The most unfortunate thing about this is that these unfortunate reformers and beneficiaries of the 90s, both were and are sitting still in power or they are business leaders in the Russian monopolized economy.

          By itself. Zyuganov and Zhirik, these pocket oppositionists, as they were under Ebn, still sit in the Duma.

          Tereshkova (the first female astronaut, a member of the Duma from the EdRo party) proposed nullify the presidential term after the adoption of amendments to the Constitution. And the Duma approved!

            EdRo is beneficial for Elbasy (Putin) to reign forever without any State Councils there, but there is already an intraspecific bickering. For Putin himself, this is the worst option — even the State Council is better — there is at least some semblance of legality. And here is a direct dictatorship. And to go into the shadows does not work.

              They just say nothing there. Once they have made such a proposal, it means they apparently understand that the batch vote will fail. I have no doubt that the Kremlin is well aware of the real correlation of pros and cons, and apparently understands that they will not succeed in falsifying SO.
              It is possible that the "package" will be crushed. But this is only an assumption.
              Therefore, they made such a proposal.

                Get it, get it. You just according to your nickname are too honest smile . And they will not have problems. This is generally outside the legal voting-I do not want to falsify. It can generally be conducted in electronic form. Who and what can check there? The only thing is that they will need to force the turnout in all ways. if they write a turnout of 50%, and come 5, there will be some problems with legitimacy.

                There is a struggle between the 2 methods of "transit of power" of Putin-the State Council and stupidly prolonging his presidency forever. For the subjects it makes no difference, but for the ruling class there is a difference. The management structure is changing under the State Council.

                  I don’t want to disappoint you, but the lower the turnout, the better. Because there is no lower threshold.
                  And the administrative resources in the form of the army, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the FSB, the Russian Guard, state employees and the party itself - they will be tightened.
                  IMHO. I think we should go and talk "NO" all amendments in a batch vote, and deal with each item separately, if they suddenly make a vote on the items.

                    This is not the case. They have no problems with legality (legality) —they write the laws themselves. And there is no problem with the result; they themselves consider it.
                    But they may have problems with legitimacy - the confidence of citizens that everything was honest. But for this they need at least the appearance of a large turnout.

              All. Already accepted. Swiftly. As if standing on a low start with fingers on the buttons for voting. And how at first I wanted amendments to the Constitution - so that in fairness, so that the deputies did not have property over the hill ... As a result, they received: God, a state-forming nation, a lot of blah blah blah and cherries on the cake: the State Council and two more terms. Is the last good? I do not know...

Who will comfort the desecrated, expelled, beaten, forever crippled physically and mentally? Emotions have not gone, Author, they are always with me, they are fueled by reality, every day of it. And the farther, the more intense emotions. Warming up is working properly.

        Yes, while these "economic Vlasovites" feel at ease.
        They have huge accounts abroad, advise the financial block of the government, and manage giant state corporations.
        However, among ordinary people, an elementary thought is ripening - the main tragedy of the twentieth century in our country was not the year 1917, and not even 1941.
        A monstrous disaster for the Fatherland was the year 1991!
        This year, our state has lost so much that can not be described in words.
        Territories, enterprises, entire industries.
        Belief in justice, hope for tomorrow. And most importantly - people.
        Millions of Russians overnight became foreigners.
        Now we are the most divided people on the planet ...
        If the country managed to recover from the invasion of the Germans in a decade, then from the invasion of Gaidarov, Chubais and other Berezovsky and for the thirties he can’t move away from the knockout.
        However, the general trend is clear - the state is reborn. Slowly, with a creak, Russia returns the lost, creates a new ...
        And this, New Russia, will rigidly ask from the "colorants" of the 90s.

          Ovchinnikov’s article “Why Soviet ideology collapsed” has just been published on the “publicist”. Once, very briefly, in accordance with the format of the forum, in one of the topics I talked about my vision of the problem. Ovchinnikov, being able to do so, showed the reasons I mentioned more fully and cited unfamiliar facts. After all, then I did not live in the RSFSR and could not know them. I was surprised. I recommend reading to everyone. It shows how the country went to what we have. These are the collaborators that you, Paul, are talking about and about them - Ovchinnikov, have taken power, but the question is - will they give it up? And to whom will they give? Some representatives of us? I do not see representatives. And without them, strong-willed, strong, ideological and uncompromising, it is unlikely that it will succeed. A people is such a substance, which, having put forward the leaders and instructed them to embody their own people, aspirations and hopes, returns to the state of the sheet. To hope for a rebirth of a nation without leaders that have clearly identified themselves is to ignore the nature of the human community. Therefore, I do not have much optimism. Especially about your "Russia will firmly ask." From Putin himself, anyone can ask - friends, enemies, corrupt intelligentsia, and even more corrupt journalists - you can list for a long time, who will ask him on occasion. But you do not mean Putin as a lamp, speaking of the impending revival of the country? Which itself will be "hard to ask"?

      For most of the Soviet people, Yeltsin’s rule is the “DAMNED” 90s!

      But Naina Yeltsin considers her husband - “Tsar Boris” - a “HOLY” person and the years of his reign are also “HOLY”!
      Not so long ago, it became known that Naina Yeltsin receives a pension that is 100 times higher than the national average.
      More details in the video presented.

      There is enough pension: the widow of Boris Yeltsin lives in the palace with a bunch of servants and a gardener. Published: January 8, 2019.

    All this, of course, is true and well written. It's just not clear how the zeros and 10s differ from the 90s? Well, apart from the increase in oil prices by 4-8 times, of course. The authorities are the same people, market reforms continued. The degradation of education, health, industry and the conduct of the Soviet heritage in general did not stop.
    As a result, now the situation is such that the price of raw materials drops to the level of the 90s (15 per barrel) and hold out for at least 2-3 years, and the 90s will seem like a children's party ....

    Russian reforms of the 90s consider a tragedy even in the USA

    Let's call everything by their proper names. What are the reforms? The coup planned and sponsored by the State Department is a violent seizure of power, supervised by representatives from the CIA and shifters who received harsh instructions from the West ...
    Such simple guys from “nowhere” got into the Kremlin ... Where did these clerks come from?
    And it turns out that in 1917 the Bolsheviks, led by Lenin, carried out an armed coup, and the EBN came to power with all its coders in a legitimate way ...
    And they are afraid of justice ... And there is a reason ... The genocide of the Russian people continues ... Also, cynicism has simply become legalized. Why should they be afraid? Associations of managers, security guards and office plankton? wassat

      The State Department is here so much as ... clinging on ... The coup was planned in the bowels of the Politburo of the CPSU and with the direct participation of the top of the KGB. Evil languages ​​say that the CIA leadership learned about the USSR’s release from the news ...
      Your questions are pertinent, but it is unlikely that in our lifetime we will learn the truth about the disaster. We will be content with rumors, conspiracy theories and our own speculation.

        The most important question is, who needed the collapse of the USSR inside the country? Who directly decided on the collapse of the USSR (we do not take into account clowns in Belovezhskaya Pushcha). I heard the theory of A. Prokhanov about the effect of "dumping the outskirts" when he was in opposition to the Kremlin, then he was fed and he fell silent, I asked this question to some smart people of the Soviet era, everyone was silent. Most likely, in the early 80s, analysts in the USSR calculated the further development of the country and realized that the country would collapse sooner or later, so the government conceived of glasnost and perestroika, the USSR was sentenced in 1991, the main goal is to save Russia in new conditions, so that it recovers as phoenix bird from the ashes, GDP somewhere said that we need 20 years of quiet development and then no one will catch us in the world, although the collapse of the USSR was the largest humanitarian catastrophe in the world

So that the strippers would not run for it (an un respectable profession, like all others, of course , except for the economists mentioned above).
    And they should elect ... not the people, of course, have a mind like that stripper of clothes, but some "best people"! well, no more than 20-30 pieces (of course, from among lawyers-economists, and engineers who joined them).
    True, there is an unpleasant feature of that mentioned stripper - what is promised will show for all the money! But with this, lawyers-economists are still bad, even among the best, most intelligent and decisive ... Well, they didn’t, they didn’t ...

      He simply checks the electorate - will he not cry because of the habit of living under him, Putin, will he not cry out: "They don’t look for good from good, where are we without you, our king, father?!?"
      I won’t cry. For all poheril. Instead of tidying up the remaining enterprises from the Union in the "fat years" when there were no sanctions, modernizing them by purchasing advanced technologies abroad, he created a plan for their privatization, equivalent to bankruptcy with subsequent conversion to retail outlets. That is all that I created. Trade in the hands of foreigners, mining in the hands of conventionally “ours” and natural foreigners, the construction of plants for liquefying, pumping and transporting mineral resources abroad and the unprecedented flowering of corruption in the history of the world in all government agencies, the army and law enforcement agencies.
      And I have to believe that this man, who put under the knife everything that was not finished in the 90s, will straighten, revive, correct everything? Yes, never. Look at Gorbachev! Such people are stubborn in theirs. I no longer need those in the presidential chair. Otarabanit until the 24th - and let's goodbye!

        Are you trying to be objective? Then give the pros and cons ... something is built, something is not .. many enterprises die because it was as it should be, others were intentionally killed. You can ask Putin for the death of state-owned enterprises, and everything else it became private after the voucher robbery, and there the master barin ... what they want and do ... the fat years ... yes, everything just then there wouldn’t be enough money, the army, weapons ... debts ... a lot was lost, I agree, but to write that 100% is all bad is wrong.

There is no place for a personal story. So, a splash. Putin did not live up to my expectations regarding one law ...
          Yes, I understand you. Putin has gained experience, knows how to do it, and is ready to continue work - with whom? With Medvedev, Siluanov, and others the same? These people, by definition, are in the service of big capital, and if you feel good with them, well, as they say, it happens. Good luck!

    Did socialism in the Union deserve criticism, especially in recent years? Of course, yes. Was it necessary to break it to the ground? Of course not ! As a result, they got feudal-cannibalistic capitalism, when not only absolutely mediocre, but absolutely shameless people came to power. Which in many remained either in power or near power.

    American economists P. Redduay and D. Glinsky once wrote a book under the eloquent title: “The Tragedy of Russian Reforms.”

    Crocodile tears.

    The only “reform” 90 that I cannot understand is why the Americans did not divide Russia into specific “democracies” —Moscow, Sverdlovsk, Kazan, Ufa. etc. Hoping for "maybe it will come down" and Russia will never be reborn "from the ashes" of economic collapse?

      The Americans are not at all the authors of our reforms, they only helped our capitalist marketers (from the degenerated formal communists) as this contributed to their interests. But it was not for the Americans or our reformers to dismantle the Russian Federation in the early 90s. The collapse of the country, literally overflowing with nuclear weapons and dangerous industries, threatened all with unimaginable adventures. And then, who will slice a chicken laying golden eggs?
      Such ideas were only among the intelligentsia (such as Sakharov), which was completely flawed by the head, but they were used in vain and only for propaganda.

    Senior Democrats were in Austria under the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), organized by the US Department of State. In other words, Ulyukaev, Chubais, Gaidar, Glazyev and others were carefully prepared for the changes of the 90s under the watchful supervision of Washington.

      Yes, at the beginning of the 90s, the interests of market reformers and Americans completely coincided, the West helped them, but now they already have a discrepancy, hence their conflict.
      From the point of view of the West, the time has not come for the collapse of Russia in the early 90s. As they consume the Soviet legacy, they are being introduced more and more into the post-Soviet space. Now they have already taken Kiev. The dismantling of the Russian Federation will be at the end.

    It’s very annoying when they say that the USSR lost the Cold War of the USA. During Brezhnev there was military parity between the USSR and the USA. An ABM agreement was signed. The most important of all agreements. Who will attack if there is nothing to defend? Gorbachev destroyed it. He destroyed the very concept of politics, which meant that ours was ours and that yours would be agreed. Yeltsin got debris from these contracts. However, he paid no more attention to them than to the landing gear. Now it’s difficult to talk about it, but we have lost a lot.
