"We have not encountered anything like this in our lives": the IMF gave economic forecasts for 2020


The International Monetary Fund presented its forecasts for the global economy, as well as for the economies of the regions for 2020. The forecast, as expected, came out substantially adjusted as to what happened at the beginning of the year.


According to the IMF, the economy in some regions of the world will collapse in a way that has not collapsed since the time of the American Great Depression. In particular, fund forecasters believe that US GDP will lose about 2020% in 5,9. An even more significant decline is forecasted for the European economy - 7,5%. In general, on the planet, according to fund analysts, GDP will decline by about 3%. And this is with a relatively favorable development of events.

IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath:

This is the largest recession since 1929. The world has changed a lot over the past three months, since our last update of the global economic forecast published in January. A rare disaster, a pandemic, led to the tragic death of a large number of people. While countries took measures to quarantine and socially distance themselves in order to curb the pandemic, the world entered into a deep recession, isolation. We have not encountered anything like this in our lives.

A separate forecast at the IMF was given for Italy. Its economy is expected to decline by 2020% in 9,1.
In France, they prepared to reduce GDP by 7,2% at the end of the year.

The forecast for Germany is minus 7% of GDP for the year.

Earlier in Russia, a forecast appeared that in 2020 the fall in GDP could become a double-digit number - about 10%.

    It is strange why Italy has a 9% drop in GDP and 10% in Russia. In Russia, however, the situation is much more stable in terms of epidemiological situation.

      It's all about the collapse of commodity markets. It is unclear how long this pandemic will last, so it’s a lot of stupidity to count now how many will fall. The pace of demand recovery will also not be clear.

        great stupidity is to make predictions today and listen to them.
        If only because the situation is unique and there is simply no experience.

          Russia's GDP was reduced by 3% until very recently in 2015. Yes, and in 2009, too. We have not noticed!

          The crisis does not scare us, we will not crawl out of it. We are only 90 to the terrible freeze!

          True, I guess why these scary 90s are afraid of just the conflagrants. Putin was not there! And so it’s the same.

            Paradox - during the time of the American Great Depression, the USSR experienced a technological upsurge and carried out industrialization. Therefore, THEIR Great Depression is not yet a sentence for ALL.

            Of course, almost 100 years have passed since then, and much has changed. Of course, now the United States is trying to draw as many “falling” as possible into its “corkscrew” orbit, in order to try to get out on their own heads with the least possible losses. "I’m not alone somersaulting in the field" is their principle.

            The main thing in this situation is to be as financially and economically as possible from the United States. Whoever stands farther from them will be less affected by their depression. What does Mongolia care about the panic on Wall Street? Yes, no. As cattle grazed in the steppe, they will also graze. But Europe with its bones will pave the way for the United States in overcoming the economic crisis. And we with such a "Government" will get the most "hello" ... More let the American debt papers buy up. For the gold ...

              Thanks to your “comm” I read about Mongolia from the bottom of my heart. And your statement that Mongolia does not care about the current situation in the world is a little wrong. The main trading partner of the country is China, and China is the United States. You catch it. Mongolia exports raw materials and agricultural products, imports EVERYTHING, starting from household items. Yes, of course, you can return a person to a natural primitive society and even turn it back into a monkey. Separate communities forgotten by God (not falling into the sight of civilization) did so, or degraded, because forever vegetated in degradation. Climb out the whole world is the essence of globalization. Europe, USA, Russia and all the rest in one team. Self-isolation is a way of regression.

              Under socialism, industrialization is planned, centrally. Under capitalism, each for himself, someone got out and someone burned out. It is proved that with the same expenses under socialism, 3 times more product will be produced and 2 times less working time will be spent.

        In your opinion, it turns out that production and consumer markets have not collapsed. In our globalized age, where for a long time everyone has been connected with each other by one thread, if one drowns, then everyone will drown. First of all, those who are heavier (that is, who managed to get involved in the global economy most of all), and vice versa, who did not manage to fully integrate into this "collective farm", have chances to get off with little blood. Russia is just among these countries. Thanks to the sanctions and Western politicians who did not want to include Russia in the "house of cards" of the world economy. And now, this house of cards began to crumble.

        It was possible for Russia against the background of the collapse of the economies to find growth points and mitigate the situation. For us, there was more than enough time to take action. Could quickly transfer the economy to the production of medical equipment consumables. To urgently introduce an emergency mode for a period of 2 months during which to pay utility bills to citizens and pay the average salary in the region (at the same time, it is hard to pin down all attempts to leave home). Enterprises have to take tax and credit vacations, return taxes paid for the year. Yes, it would take a lot of money, but on the other hand, why else do you need a reserve, if not for such cases?

          find growth points and mitigate the situation.

          There is a very simple way, developed in the mid-20th century - the use of hyperimmune serums, at worst, in the blood plasma of ill people for the treatment of viral diseases.
          immunoglobulins perfectly inactivate the virus, so the informational noise about the lack of worthy antiviral agents is nothing more than a fake. 1 ml the patient’s serum will cure the patient in the early and middle stages of the disease per day. Therefore, the situation can be mitigated by political will and enlightenment of the medieval level of consumers' minds.
          The use of serum will reduce the death of Covid to zero.

      What the IMF has not encountered is the growing volume of its printed matter.

    But then the fairy-tale benefactor of All Russia spoke out through a duroscope and in a single impulse of zeroing began to broadcast about a new breakthrough in minus 5.5%))) The truth was noticeable on the softer face, to put it mildly, that our everything, without which everything is lost and bent, does not understand what is it about, but most importantly, he "pushed" other countries in this matter)))

      Victor hi With the epidemic, it becomes more understandable, according to preliminary estimates, we have from 30 to 40% of carriers of antibodies to the corona laughing That is, this canoe began not last month, but last year. Therefore, they started testing for antibodies, all those with antibodies are go arbeiten, the sun is still high laughing By May, something will work. It will be like this with economics (wangyu and tuned up) - a 20% price increase for groups of goods back and forth 2-5%, since the majority sits at home and does not produce goods, there are no warehouses like in the USSR, and there is a shortage of stock. The problem of deficiency is solved in different ways - in socialism there is money, but you just can’t buy it, under capitalism there is one deficit - money wassat . Further, it will go according to the usual scheme - the lack of money does not allow the development of production, and it is not necessary because of the lack of money from the buyer laughing , a vicious circle called pseudoscientific "recession." Nobody will solve this problem, since it can only be solved by a change in the system, and who wants to lose their overpowered honest work? The deputies clearly and clearly sent a signal - we will not reduce our salaries!

        In all enterprises, this is exactly so ... although, all enterprises are of a continuous cycle, they simply cannot be stopped.
        Really do not work all sorts of salons, small shops and other miscellaneous. I took up construction, went bought cement, blocks and other miscellaneous, etc. Dangled to the market for meat for dogs, everything is as always, they just sprinkle different rubbish and masked people !!!
        Oh yes, PROBLEM! Nowhere to get a haircut, yes, you’ll have to go to a friend’s house! I have a pass, everything is within the route.
        Of course, not everywhere like that !!! So far we have 46 infected / confirmed to the region (2 million inhabitants) and two have not survived!

Services do not work, it’s a fact, in principle, if everyone follows at least the elementary rules of the war, then the burden on doctors will not be spontaneous, it seems to me that with such a “responsibility” of the population and the leadership we are doomed to get sick crying Even sellers do not wear masks, although they are not in pharmacies, like paracetamol laughing In general, everyone was liquidated, “what kind of pop is such a parish” and vice versa ... There is something to think about on the topic - do we need it?
          I have a garden on my isolation and without it laughing Well, and housework (private house) We had +20 here yesterday, this morning snow wassat the truth has already melted ... surprises when you consider that the crops have already hatch, it’s good that they keep a little frost ...

Everyone should see it means that either they need to tighten everything up or “hammer in everything”, and if we move away from this framework of the worldview that they are trying to drive us into. Why should we do it in the country? ” the usury institution that did not survive the coronavirus After all, by and large, that requires all people to regularly earn "living" utility payments (which the state can cancel) and loans Further medicines (not always not all, and not regularly, and some of them are also under state control ) food (depends on the subsidiary farm and, again, the state is able to regulate) clothes are not so critical energy resources (again state control) It turns out completely uncontrolled bloodsuckers only money-lenders And by the way, we have a unique situation in the country in that both Orthodoxy and Islam condemn to put it mildly condemn te people will support

      The uniqueness of the situation is nothing more than a photo on Instagram with puffed lips-dumplings for girls who sympathize with lowered social responsibility. If Catholic standards are strictly observed, then usury is also condemned. So what?
      But what is true is true - financial capital is not able to cope with such a challenge. Because for them, the real world and material production has long turned into an abstraction, something unnecessary and complex. And since in the world financial capital has crushed the real sector of the global economy, the real sectors are skidding.

        ----
        You have mixed up the concepts of financial capital and services. This is not the same thing.
        You wanted to say that the service sector has crushed the manufacturing sector.
        The normal ratio of services to production is 65-75 to 35-25.
        If the country has a manufacturing sector of 50%, for example, then the country is underdeveloped
        in the service sector.
        But if in the country the production is 10%, for example, it means that it has technological degradation.

          Not at all. You mixed it up. It's not about the service sector, but about financial capital, which owns the lion's share of industrial shares and other assets on a global scale. Got sick of the Fed, Walt Street, the IMF doesn't tell you anything? These are far from cafes with hairdressers.
          The thing is that money has become higher than material production and has come off from it.

            1) Banks do not own industry. Banks themselves in a deep "pope".
            Industry (stocks of companies) are buying up investment

                Chinese banks are pumped up by the state. It's not a secret.
                A crisis can happen if the state throws them. There is a risk.
                For this reason, Chinese banks are continuously investing:
                finance construction and production projects
                all over the world, reinforcing Chinese trade. In hope,
                that they will return the money. Their strategy is clear.

                  Their strategy is not new - they created a huge financial bubble inside the country with gigantic cross-debt that was ready to explode before the epidemic.

                  In 2008, the West cleared the bubble, although it fell into a recession for a couple of years. And China cannot afford it, so it continued to inflate the bubble with new debts that have already reached monstrous proportions. The only way to postpone the inevitable is only continuous economic and export growth. at a rate of no lower than -6-8%, otherwise everything will fall. Therefore, they quickly “dealt with the epidemic. They cannot afford not only a recession, but even a slowdown in growth.
                  But I'm afraid in an effort to embellish reality, they allowed a pandemic and a collapse of the global economy that will pull them into a hole, but they risk not into a hole like the West, but into an abyss.

                      That's it. Worse than in Africa. Already the fact itself speaks of real Chinese "effectiveness" in this area.

                      If without quotes, then China for 2 months-December and January-denied and lied about the very fact of the epidemic and its magnitude and danger (it also lied during the previous epidemics). And while lying and denied, the virus has spread freely around the world. then for 2,5 months I turned part of the country into a concentration camp to somehow stop the epidemic. 4 months quickly for you?
                      Taiwan and the South Caucasus coped quickly and efficiently. Moreover, without concentration camps. Because they had the experience of previous Chinese epidemics and know the real price of the Chinese lies and the numbers of the Central Committee of the party. Taiwan also carefully monitored everything from the very beginning and in early January when China they sang songs with two voices about the fact that there was no epidemic and there was no need to close the message with China - they noticed that China began to actively buy ventilation and masks for these songs. And the Taiwanese immediately reacted - restrictions on flights from China, screening arriving from there, especially from Wuhan, tests, isolation and focal quarantines. And today, there are less than 400 infected and several dead. Koreans, Singaporeans, Hong Kong, etc. have done the same, because they have already experienced the "effective" lies of the Chinese. And the rest the world is not and we have what we have

                        The Chinese took two to three weeks to determine the degree of danger.
                        Of these, as they acknowledge, is lost (silence in the hospital with
                        the first patient - a market trader) was one week.
                        They sent information to the WHO about the new virus right away.
                        But WHO did not respond.
                        Do not exaggerate the guilt of the Chinese. For a country with 1.5 billion people
                        they worked super-fast.

            Investing in order to make a profit is great And I thought that investing should be done to research for the benefit of people to learn new things (so to speak through thorns to the stars) This is the problem that they created this consumption system for their belly and when there wasn’t enough when the planet was baited by garbage when the balance of production and consumption was broken instead so that they decided to drive everyone into digital slavery and start launching all kinds of viruses (It's so easy to dough a lot - I'm the boss all the old way, and then cut the average thread I can’t (I don’t know how and I don’t know how), it’s nothing) Well, what danger is there in changing the world, but what if the most cunning is not the smartest?

    Economists have paranoia with their "growth-fall in GDP" by a few percent ... The great depression is hunger, goverville out of the boxes, fights with the police, the closure of all banks, the ruin of 25% of the business, the complete collapse of exchanges, the battles of cops-bandits .. . Until these pictures are far away.

    A monkey runs through the forest and yells: - crisis, crisis.
    She meets a fox and asks: -monkey, what are you yelling?
    - How not to yell, because the crisis is the same.
    -Well, the crisis, so what, I walked in furs and will walk.
    The monkey waved a hand and ran on: -crisis, crisis.
    A wolf comes in, he asks: -What are you yelling, have you scared the whole forest?
    -So the crisis, how not to yell?
    - Well, and what is the crisis, I ate meat as I will.
    A monkey runs and thinks: - and it’s true that I am screaming, as I ran with my bare ass, I will run.

    According to the IMF, the economy in some regions of the world will collapse in a way that it did not collapse since the American Great Depression.

    How is it?
    Great Depression - The global economic crisis that began in October 1929 with the stock market crash in the United States and continued until 1939 year.

    The International Monetary Fund, IMF (International Monetary Fund, IMF) - a specialized agency of the UN, with headquarters in Washington, USA. At the Bretton Woods Conference on Monetary and Financial Affairs 22 July 1944 year The basis of the agreement was developed (IMF Charter).

    stop fool Maybe I, too, should sit down and reason about the causes and results of WWII? What-what, and your international moneylenders office has long shown its Smelly, self-serving inside.
    It is not surprising to me that some states are trying to return to barter deals, which guarantees the absence of IMF intervention and the payment of “rent” for using the dollar.
    Those countries that live off their own resources will not notice either the crises or the consequences of the coronavirus. And those whose economies are based on the market and finances use banking speculation will go ... into the woods.

    Today, JP Morgan gave a forecast for a decline in US GDP for the second trimester with 40% and unemployment - 20%. Wells Fargo says it’s not at all necessary that recovery will be at the end of that year.

    The EU gives more conservative estimates of the decline, but I think we can calmly multiply the decline by 2x. For Bulgaria, the IMF predicts a 12% decline for this year, but I think that is the minimum cost. Easy could be more.

    “We have not encountered anything like this in our lives”
    How is it not encountered? You might think that capitalism did not have a single major crisis before. Just before, they were solved by world wars, and now (due to the presence of nuclear weapons), this method is difficult. Acting in the old way, that is, pouring freshly made money, the same thing does not work. As the saying goes, "they walked, they had fun, they counted they shed tears." Who else will say that capitalism is the best economic and political formation ?. Now we’ll see how the markets will destroy everything. Who didn’t fit into the markets. I won’t be surprised if it turns out to be a simple thing that the market didn’t fit, first of all, those who created it, that is, the world economic giants. For that fought for it and ran. Well, it turns out to be to blame, coronavirus. laughing

    Capitalism shows the teeth .. got bored. What we were going to and come to. The man is only an adjective to money .. there is no money no man.
    Falls rise ebbs and flows. Large capital solves its problems at the expense of the population. And there is no profit left. And the rest ... get ready for the incomprehensible ...
