Bloomberg: Russian economy shrank by a quarter in April


According to data for April, the contraction of the Russian economy amounted to about 25 percent. It is assumed that the fall in GDP in the Russian Federation for the second quarter of this year will be 16 percent.


This opinion is expressed by analysts at the Bloomberg news agency, citing data from the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation.

Over the past month, a decrease in production by about a quarter. The reason for this was the introduction of restrictions by the government due to the coronavirus pandemic. In turn, this caused a significant drop in the income of the country's population.

Bloomberg analyst Scott Johnson expects a more significant drop in Russia's economy over the second quarter than during the global financial crisis. Indirectly, serious economic problems in the country are indicated by the report of the government of the Russian Federation on expenses and incomes.

In these conditions, one does not have to rely on the economic recovery that the leadership of the Russian Federation expected this year.

Of course, this happens not only in Russia, but throughout the world. The coronavirus crisis has affected most other countries. For our country, it turned out to be very sensitive, since problems due to the pandemic began against the backdrop of declining oil prices, the proceeds of the sale of which occupy a significant share in the revenue side of the country's budget.

            What about the Americans themselves?

            Logs in the eye do not see!

            The economists forecast that the US GDP may fall by 20-25% by the end of the year!

        Do you want to know how in the USA? Please.
        MOSCOW, April 14 - RIA Novosti, Natalya Dembinskaya. The largest banks have updated forecasts and are waiting for a catastrophic collapse of the US economy - by 40%. It is estimated that in April, due to the closure of enterprises and quarantine, the country will lose about 25 million jobs. This has not happened in history yet. What all this will turn out to be in RIA Novosti material.
        Worse than expected
        Already in mid-March, Bank of America announced that the pandemic is facing unprecedented consequences. Throughout the second quarter, jobs will be lost for one million Americans a month, which will lead to a 12% drop in GDP. In another large bank, Morgan Stanley, they were more pessimistic: they talked about minus 30%.
        Now it’s clear that things are even worse. According to a revised forecast by Morgan Stanley, published last week, the economy will collapse by 38%. Businesses are closing in all states, economists said.


        In Swiss Credit Suisse expect a fall by a third.
        "We should be preparing for a record reduction in US gross domestic product this quarter, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to destroy the economy. GDP will decrease by 33,5%. This means that the period from April 1 to June 30 will be the worst ever recorded since 1945 of the year, ”bank analysts write.

      Everything is simple. Michael Bloomberg (the owner of the agency) received a party task to charm Russia.
      That is, due to its mental abilities, traditions of indiscriminate and unproven slander, and so on.
      The dream to see the eokonomics of Russia "torn to shreds" has not gone away. Obama go still raving in his wet dreams, as he tore the Russians.

    Central Bank of Russia does not work well for the benefit of Russians

    since June 2013, the ruble depreciated 2.3 times against the US dollar
    the total loss of the Central Bank for 2013-2019 amounted to 584 billion rubles, or 83 billion per year
    expenses for the maintenance of Central Bank employees for this period amounted to 762 billion rubles, or 109 billion per year
    the outflow of capital abroad in 2013-2019 amounted to 379 billion US dollars or 59 billion per year
    investment loans make up less than 7% of the assets of the Russian banking system and less than 10% of the sources of financing investments
    for 6 years since 2014 - only 9 companies conducted an initial public offering of their shares on the Moscow Exchange for a total amount of 115 billion rubles
    the total capitalization of the Russian market grew by negligible 0.6% per year, taking into account inflation
    the management of the Central Bank seized more than 2 trillion rubles from the National Welfare Fund as a “payment” of a stake in Sberbank, another 2 trillion rubles. supposed to pay foreign investors as part of this dubious "deal"

    So have incomes fallen or the economy? And it is incomprehensibly obtained by logic - only in April it will fall by a quarter, and in the quarter it will be 16 percent. I don’t know, by logic, what the calculations were made, but in general the fall of the economy by a quarter is a disaster, but so far it is not felt. So I think this is another juggling of concepts and numbers in the spirit of Western media

      Bloomberg did not report anything false. The Ministry of Finance said about the same figures.

            More unemployment - less economy and budget, however.

    // According to April data, the contraction in the Russian economy was about 25 percent. It is assumed that the fall in GDP in Russia for the second quarter of this year will be 16 percent //
    So the numbers do not give. It's unclear...
    Ps. At the end of the year, macro indicators will say everything, but now this is "nonsense" .. as I think. In the Israeli economy, -2 percent of GDP is expected. This is with a stable growth of about + 4 percent ... Let's hope for the best.

      "The best was already" (Armenian Radio).
      It will be worse, as Yeltsin had promised. There is only one question: will there be only quantitative changes, or will the quantity turn into quality?

    The US economy is shrinking more than the Russian economy as a whole)).

    Yes, probably those 6 trillion dollars for which it was decided to print (even to those previously printed), and by themselves more.
    But this is not an economy, it is a fraud that always has an end.

    The reports of the US Treasury for April came out at night, I give a summary of the current state of the US budget and the GKO pyramid (at the beginning of May). We carefully monitor the short part of the pyramid (due for repayment in the coming months), since it is precisely from this part that its collapse will begin. The situation is just awful.

    A little specificity to understand the scale. If before the financial crisis of 2008, the short-term part of the US GKO pyramid was equal to about 7-8 monthly budget revenues, now this part has grown to 23 months in revenue. If someone does not understand, just to pay off the existing debt in the coming year, an amount equal to the income for the previous two years will be required. And still need to cover current expenses. And you also need to cover a new gigantic deficit that will arise during this period. Someone will say this is a one-time surge. Well, we are looking at normalization (averaging) for the previous 12 months. US budget revenues were $ 272 yards (an annual fall of -3.4%), budget expenditures were $ 433 yards (an annual increase of + 19%), a budget deficit of $ 161 yards (an annual increase of + 96% was almost several times!). Trump was not able to show what “great america again” looks like in the real sector. But on the other hand, he was able to break Obama's records in the labor field of the construction of GKO pyramids! Make america failed again! The farther into the forest, the nafih. Well, Big Bad the boom will be epic laughing
