An accountant against an academician. Who is closer to the truth: Ruslan Grinberg or Alexey Kudrin?

At the foot of the mountain



Alexey Kudrin, one of the best finance ministers in stories modern Russia (according to Russian and foreign business media), has never hidden liberal views on the economy. And now, already at the post of chairman of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation, he sometimes breaks through.

He remains convinced that the dominance of large state institutions in the economy is one of the main threats to our financial market. And this despite the fact that it is the state structures, including the harshly criticized industry corporations, that today are, if not the locomotives, then certainly the anchors of the domestic industry.

Yes, while they also remain consumers of colossal budgetary resources. But even for the construction of the Crimean Bridge, it was necessary to transfer purely private construction structures to a position similar to state corporations.


And if the chief state controller and accountant considers state institutions to be a real threat to the economy, it would be nice for him to remind that the presence of the state is almost felt most strongly in the financial sphere. Thus, in the top ten largest banks in the country, only one does not have a large state block of shares.

Interestingly, Kudrin called the growing US national debt no less dangerous for our financial system, once again posing as an inveterate liberal. If this is really so, then maybe it is time for us to get off as quickly as possible not from the oil, but from the dollar needle?

Without betraying himself, the current head of the Accounts Chamber of Russia is still distinguished by an excellent reaction to events, responding to them at the first call of their writing and withdrawing colleagues from purely "business" media. As soon as there was a real threat of a second quarantine due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Kudrin gave his operational forecast regarding the prospects for the domestic economy.

Fundamentally, in addition to the reference to the fact that the government forecast for 2021 did not take into account the second wave, Kudrin's criticism of the calculations of the Ministry of Economic Development hardly differs from the comments of the authors ("Don't make an icon out of the crisis"). However, in our notes there were no predictive percentages that Alexei Leonidovich has.

He also believes that the decline in the country's GDP this year will exceed five percent against 3,9 in the forecast of the Ministry of Economic Development. It is characteristic that this department has reduced the percentage of the decline quite recently, and just from the level of 5 percent, and reduced it only with an eye to the stabilization of oil prices.

There are certain doubts, adjusted for the newly growing China, that the second wave of the pandemic will lead to a really strong drop in oil prices. But it can kill the remnants of a free (one might say: liberal, according to Kudrin) economy.

Losses for small and medium-sized businesses from restrictions, according to the head of the Accounts Chamber, may turn out to be more significant than previously assumed. To put it mildly, especially considering that small business is much more dependent on the well-being of the country's population, which already now clearly leaves much to be desired.

... Or on the edge of the abyss


In our opinion, the very fact of obsessive coincidences in the figures at the Accounts Chamber and the Ministry of Economic Development is very remarkable. Moreover, Kudrin does not in the least refute the calculations of this department, although, as we see, he does not share the optimism of Minister Maxim Reshetnikov.

However, for 2022-2023, Kudrin also promises the Russian economy growth, albeit small - a maximum of 2,5 percent. But since 2021, the head of the RF JV, like many other officials, apparently has no clarity. Kudrin even blurts out that a year later, the economic downturn may continue, and 2021 will also bring great difficulties to the country.

Thus, the coveted three percent of growth from the government forecast, according to the chairman of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation, can again be hampered by the second wave of coronavirus. For our part, we will add that the inevitable fall in consumer (read: effective, according to J.M. Keynes) demand, inevitable in the event of a new series of severe restrictions, can hinder even more. Ruslan Grinberg, Corresponding Member and Chief Expert of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who has headed the Institute of Economics for many years, likes to regularly remind about its insignificance, even "scantiness" in Russia.


He was the first authoritative analyst to comment on Kudrin's recent speeches. After all, apparently, the difficult task fell out of spreading straws on the eve of the publication of much less optimistic scenarios for the development of the domestic economy than just three weeks ago.

Ruslan Grinberg first of all drew attention to Kudrin's remark, noting that the fall in the Russian economy was not as serious as in other countries. In this regard, the academician has no trace of any optimism. There was simply nowhere to fall seriously.

Kudrin sees the reasons for the not so significant decline in the lower share of small and medium-sized businesses, the service and tourism sectors, and at the same time a high share of mining and processing enterprises. These factors influenced the fact that the crisis in Russia turned out to be milder, Kudrin added.

Ruslan Grinberg, on the contrary, considers these factors to be the main problems for the domestic economy. Having a good connection between big business and consumers in the form of small and medium-sized businesses, our economy could gain additional stability, no doubt the esteemed corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

However, small business would have much better chances of survival if the process of impoverishment of citizens did not continue to grow in Russia, Ruslan Grinberg noted. He drew attention to the fact that in the near future the incomes of Russians will continue to fall, regardless of the level of GDP, and the authorities are still unable to rectify the situation.

Citizens' incomes are declining, but the drop in GDP does not matter here, be it at least five, at least six, at least four percent. The fall in income will continue in the near future due to the paralysis of all economic activities, which happened for known reasons, "

- recalled the chief expert of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

It is not worth hoping for an improvement in the situation, the economist noted.

“The authorities do not know what to do, and few people in the world know. But they must radiate optimism, and will do everything to keep things from getting worse. And in order to get better, it is necessary to completely change the philosophy of economic policy, for which our government is not ready, and maybe not capable of ”,

- concluded Greenberg.

        But the salaries they receive are impressive.
        If the gap in wages between a simple hard worker and hehe effective manager (in quotes) is several orders of magnitude different, then what kind of economy is it?
        Our ruling class, like a parasite, has stuck to the resources of Russia and milked it at the expense of rent and skimming the cream from privatization ... sooner or later this will lead to the collapse of the economy.

          Yes, the difference in salaries is terrifying and there is no excuse for this.
          I do not know what Kudrin and Greenberg are actually thinking, but clearly not about finding ways to achieve, for example, the economic growth that was until recently in China.
          And each of the VO visitors can seem to be able to establish facts at their level, moreover, for a much more modest salary.

            But this, I think, is already from the field of philosophy. We are at a level of development when for every individual in society, personal enrichment is overwhelmingly a "guiding star" in life, or at least one of the most influential principles. Hardly any of those present at this forum began their work in a higher position with a decrease in their salaries. Because, as a rule, coming to a new position is conditioned and motivated by an increase in one's level of well-being. Society has not yet come to a fashion for asceticism, self-restraint in meeting their needs. Therefore, you do not see an excuse for other people's salaries, but you will always find one for yours. This is the person ... our person. He is no worse or better than others. It's just that each nation has passed its own path of evolutionary development and has what it has. It is foolish to step out of your community and try to judge it. You are exactly the same as it is (in the average mass).

              The difference in salaries of more than 10 times between the richest and the poorest in the country leads to social tension and threatens the country's security.
              So it was written in the "National Security Strategy 2020".
              Thus, the difference in income is not a philosophical concept, but a real threat to peaceful life in the country.

                Dear, the current difference in income is a consequence of the fact that people who receive a large salary consider this a normal phenomenon. This is their inner conviction and attitude to their own well-being and its difference from others. This is primary. Some (employers) give, others (workers) take. This process is voluntary, but no one is trying to refuse a large salary, but they also strive to increase it in all possible, moreover legal, ways. I’m talking about this, if you don’t understand. Any strategy can be written. The desire to increase income, as a person's internal state, cannot be corrected by strategies. Inner convictions can be changed by public inquiry, by fashion, if you like, by a personal example of an authoritative personality. And today these strategies are written by people with watches worth a hundred thousand dollars in their hands. This is our level of development today. And we are almost all like that, with very few exceptions. It's just that sometimes we are ashamed to admit it even to ourselves winked

                  the prevailing difference in income is a consequence of the fact that people who receive a large salary consider this a normal phenomenon.

                  This is a consequence of the laws adopted by the "mad printer" (the State Duma).
                  In all countries, the difference in wages is regulated by law, and you cannot allow people's lives to depend on someone's wishes. Otherwise, someone would now want to buy a village for serfs, but not ... The law has nothing to do with internal convictions.
                  The growth in the income of the director of the enterprise should depend on the growth in the income of the whole enterprise and correlate with the income of the workers.
                  We have Gazprom incurring losses, and premiums for top managers are growing. This is a consequence of the absence of laws. This state of affairs makes the economy ineffective.

It is not entirely smart to expect that, within the framework of one article, some unknown authors have prescribed convincing effective recipes for treating the economy. The opinions of Kudrin and Greenberg are not just their names and academic titles, but large groups of specialists involved in the routine computing work of large volumes of statistics. How can they be corrected by two authors of an article on VO, who are unlikely to have a comparable analytical apparatus? Economics is not a religion, it is a science where there is a lot of exactness (mathematics) but also infinitely many hypothetical subjective ones that cannot be predicted accurately (such as "inflation expectations", political preferences and decisions in the field of tariff barriers, taxation, external control systems, etc.). in various subjects of economic interaction). Even more amusing are the attempts of non-specialists to discuss the fidelity and fallacy of the actions of specialists. It was as if the patients in the smoking room were discussing the correctness of the doctor's treatment tactics for complex diseases. laughing

        It's strange. In the spring, they said that the National Welfare Fund had a total of more than $ 500 billion, and Komolov said $ 128 billion. And since the Fund has not yet been printed, as the press constantly repeats, it turns out that more than $ 378 billion has already been stolen?

        I will not vote for him, he is an accountant, not a politician. Moreover, an accountant who counts on accounts. Or maybe even an abacus.
        I will not vote for Mishustin either. He's an accountant, counting on a calculator. I don’t believe that it’s a special program on a computer. If this were the case, a bunch of mine and steamer owners would already be behind bars for hiding and evading taxes and other financial crimes.

            Chinese. Developed the so-called doctrine of the self-destructive economy. The West is already studying it, figuring it out. They say there is meaning and perspectives. For example, housing is only purchased, but the shelf life of any house is 70 years. And so - in everything. The expiration date has expired, the product is destroyed on the vine. At least a house, at least something else. Work on destruction and creation - above the roof, jobs - in bulk. And the need for work is continuous. The ancient Egyptians did not know, erecting their pyramids and temples for millennia, that a self-destructive economy, keeping pace with technological progress, is extremely promising. However, would we know about them?

    Kudrin sees the reasons for the not so significant decline in the lower share of small and medium-sized businesses, the service and tourism sectors, and at the same time a high share of mining and processing enterprises. These factors influenced the fact that the crisis in Russia turned out to be milder, Kudrin added.

    Indeed ... then, today at least 1 out of 10 medium and small businesses have closed (in chocolate, according to the optimistic data of Rosstat laughing ) (according to other sources - 3 out of 10) (if we take into account the PPI - then 4 out of 10) - against the background of mining and processing enterprises "garbage in vegetable oil" bully

    The question is ... how many millions of able-bodied people in Russia are out of work now ?! am And where is the account and control of all this ?! laughing

          The same entrepreneur wonders why laws restricting small and medium-sized businesses are constantly being tightened up? After all, this business allows you to create a huge number of jobs - as many as you need! And that's exactly why. The authorities do not need a people who feed themselves, but must - from a powerful hand and were grateful, ingratiatingly looked at the authorities as a benefactor, gradually, from generation to generation, losing the skills of passionate entrepreneurship and even the very idea of ​​such an opportunity.
          For an entrepreneur is a carrier of the master's psychology, who respects himself. Growing up to a major businessman, he is able to compete with the established oligarchy and oust him from illegally occupied positions. It is able to compete with countless foreign "partners" who have seized our trading networks, food production, part of the power generating capacities, collection of payments for electricity, etc. And as a result of such activities, not to let the political power sleep peacefully, and on occasion change to a convenient one for him, an entrepreneur who grew up in a competitive struggle and really understands the schemes and currents of production. Therefore, a priori critical of the authorities ...

          And so that it does not happen like this, it is necessary to annually tighten the requirements for small and medium-sized businesses - so that they howl and shut down.
          Every year, he, small and medium, should descend to him, new tax solutions that can cause amazement at the lack of elementary logic.
          And therefore, a total digitalization of the activities of small and medium-sized enterprises will be carried out, which, according to experts, will reduce production efficiency by 30-40%.
          For this, a new labor code is being introduced, which experts have already recognized as ineffective, and in some positions - absurd, but who will listen to specialists if the task is different, namely: to kill small and medium-sized people as a possible nucleus of future social protests.

          But entrepreneurs for the most part are still mistaken, believing that such a policy of the authorities towards them comes from a total misunderstanding of what small and especially medium business is.
          On the contrary! Power protects itself and its clan. Is this really incomprehensible to business? I, as a consumer, understand. When I buy food, I know that on the territory of my country they are produced by foreigners who bought up Russian brands in the bud.
          It turns out like this:
          Entrepreneur, have you sold your business to a foreigner yet?!? So you are politically unreliable!

And the fact that hundreds of thousands of personal private entrepreneurs and self-employed people were left without work - then not a single line about this will appear anywhere in the official documents .. . as well as the fact that these hundreds of thousands of Russians have become self-employed persons and self-employed only and exclusively because they would work with Yandex-taxi - they do not shout about this at every corner after all ?! hi

                        About the Chief Engineer for 110 thousand rubles. a month - I agree - there are such vacancies ... the problem is that there are currently at best a couple of dozen "Chief Engineers" in Klin for the whole city, and they all work in Moscow at a rate of 1,5-2 times more wink and it is not a fact which of these two dozen will agree to work for "such a penny" - such people are "piece goods" even for Moscow hi

                        and for the rest ... so as not to "pour from empty to empty" ... lol a third of the able-bodied Klin (optimistic estimates according to the Rosstat (if they would conduct such studies) every morning goes to Moscow to work for 50-70 thousand rubles a month ... 2-3 hours before work ... 2-3 hours from work. .. every working day ...))) not from a good life, because there is no work in Klin !!!

    The authorities do not know what to do, and few people in the world know.

    Good, correct clarification .... although, there is no joy from the fact that we have almost the same as everywhere else!
    The service business is as bad as a significant part of the country's population. Everything is interconnected.
    No amount of jerking will help now! They will only make it worse.
    The economy needs to become economical! As big as every person. Live within your means.
    But the public activity of the population must increase, otherwise some part of society will really want to shift the whole burden of problems and losses onto everyone else! It is against this that society should rally, only in this way, in reality, ALL TOGETHER!

        The answer is the same, non-humanities - what happens when many, many cells (batteries) are collected in one big battery?
        The answer is that you can power a "bulldozer that will move a stone out of our way."
        This is of course very figurative, but approximately the way it is.
        You should not create "clubs of beer lovers on sofas", but search / create / join a community of like-minded people and ... further as a textbook.
        We are the state !!! But only when we are all together.

          I agree with you. You can take more batteries and start the bulldozer. But people are not batteries. Judging from my own experience. My partner and I have created a small "firm". There were about 50 employees. We decided that the meals (lunch) would be centralized. They took the cook, he cooked for everyone, such as set meals. I note that there were no complaints about the cook, he cooked very well. Everything seemed to be fine, but then discontent (claims) began, such as: I don’t want it, I don’t like it, I have gastritis, I cannot.

            That's right, people are not batteries ... although those from different batches, from different manufacturers, can be both beneficial and harmful! And the greater the difference, the more there are. So for that and the "electrician" must be an experienced, specialist in order to weed out the marriage as its negative effect manifests itself!
            It is the same with people. There should be those leaders who know how to unite everyone together, lead to the intended goal, and weed out "marriage" before it can harm the common cause!
            There will be leaders, but there will also be those who are ready to trample the light in the night! So it was, is, will always be.

      Maybe you're right.
      So many years we endured under gloomy discontent, with an intonation that defies description, but clearly makes it possible to understand that we all endured this: "Don't rock the boat!" And in general, they are stupid in life, since we do not share the concerns of the intra-clan squabbles of the oligarchy (and there can be no others, right?). And right there, in order to create a picture for us of our alleged movement, a professional imitation opposition with a clichéd set of slogans was released into the streets. Like, here's a movie for you, see how active you are, sitting in front of the TV. And then it was as if you heard: "Have you seen? Have you seen that there is some movement in the country? Well, okay!"
      And so they lived.
      And today I watched the nighttime confrontation in Belarus. Long barricades across squares and streets from some tumbled down booths, cupboards, park fences, a lot of stones turned out of the sidewalks, and Molotov cocktails. Are thrown over. The police shoot smoky, the defenders of the barricades fiery. They even encroached on the police department.
      There are many defenders. I'm no longer attracted to the staged show.

    The truth is indeed between them, but it is difficult to develop an economy in a hostile environment. When the economy depends on the Fed's decision, then it is not self-sufficient.
    In one thing, the academician is right, small and medium business needs to be developed and it needs to be helped, not strangled

    The state is the foundation. Big business is equipment that provides the main income in any state, even (sarcastically ..) in the liberal USA. And, as I have defined here myself, I am not afraid of this word, professor, once again I am not afraid of another word, Greenberg, "gasket" is a consumable that remains in the case, or is subject to frequent replacement during the operation of the equipment. Medium business is always sacrificed in any country in any crisis. I'm not talking about the small one. Small simply disappears by itself even on the eve of the crisis.
    Russians' incomes will continue to fall regardless of the level of GDP, and the authorities are still unable to rectify the situation.

    It's not about strength. The point is reluctance, for reasons clearly not voiced, but which everyone knows about.
    In this regard, the academician has no trace of optimism. There was simply nowhere to fall seriously

    She ... here he is clearly wrong. There is room to fall. There was no place to fall in the second half of the 80s, but then the 90s came and it turned out there was room to fall.
    The whole problem is not in the economy, but in the fact that it is liberal. Those. the whole world is working to support the world currency - the dollar, instead of saving their economies.
    Linking GDP and the dollar rate is simply killing.
    Economics is a game with rules invented somewhere by someone.
    Now we have read an article about two players. At what very bad players. They are both considered authorities. And none of them was able to make money by these rules of states. Both graze near budget. And why listen to them?

    I don’t believe these soothsayers. Someone still believes that in 1991 they staged a coup for the sake of a brighter future. The people who were satisfied with all this were driven by the desire to get into the pocket of the state. And this desire only increased every year. And in order for this share to increase, the Prime Minister in Ukraine drew a future without pensions. Has anyone in the West indignant? The West has watched the division of property in the post-Soviet space before. The more indignation of ordinary people, it is beneficial to it.

    According to this article, Granberg notes:
    Having a good connection between big business and consumers in the form of small and medium-sized enterprises, our economy could both gain additional stability,


    However, in his other work ("The Results of Economic Reforms in Post-Socialist Countries"), he comes to a slightly different conclusion:
    Direct relationship between the scale of the private sector and the rate of economic growth no... In most countries, the greatest effect was achieved already at the stage of commercialization of the activities of state enterprises.

    Probably, the academician is referring to the SMP, directly created at their own expense "from scratch."
    However, taking into account the repeatedly mentioned low level of positive expectations of both the consumer and the NSR, especially in conditions of restrictions and expectations of such, would it be correct to believe that NSR in crisis situations will be just a damper, and not a source of negative multiplication? Too high tax (due to the same "indirect" VAT, leading to an increase in the final cost of their products, works, services), credit, lease burden on them. Bearing in mind the "incredibly generous" assistance from the state to these economic entities, it seems that the second option will most likely take place.
    And I don't even want to comment on Kudrin.

    It is not worth hoping for an improvement in the situation, the economist noted.
    “The authorities do not know what to do, and few people in the world know. But they must radiate optimism, and will do everything to keep things from getting worse. And in order to get better, it is necessary to completely change the philosophy of economic policy, for which our government is not ready, and maybe not capable of ”,
    - concluded Greenberg.


    When you read the statements of people of such a level as this expert, it is difficult to understand what he means.
    You start to spend time reading his interviews, articles, works.
    And only then do you understand the true essence of his words and thoughts.
    Short excerpt:
    "..... The way out is in the movement to a genuine social market economy, where freedom and justice do not exclude, but complement each other. It follows that almost the entire world society needs a responsible alternative game that balances the modern financial oligarchy. And here, apparently, there is no alternative to the renewed version of social liberalism that ruled the show in the 1950s – 1970s, and actions to overcome the crisis of democracy, to which the dominance of the quasi-religious idea of ​​the free market led.

    But unlike socialism or Keynesianism, this idea is implicated in the tough self-interest of its bearers and without resistance will not renounce the vicious elitism that has ensured the enrichment of the minority unprecedented in modern history. And yet there is still hope to correct the situation in a legal way. The case is small. International collaboration between civil society organizations, human rights groups and other non-governmental organizations supporting change should be encouraged. At the same time, it is necessary to find the strength to cope with the financial oligarchy without social disintegration, not to mention violence. Transnational corporations must be brought under the control of supranational regulators. It is necessary to further strengthen the fight against tax havens, tax evasion, fraud and corruption, as well as ensure international coordination of efforts aimed at raising corporate taxes, the pan-European tax on wealth and financial transactions. And, of course, it's time to move from rhetoric to practice regarding the separation of business from politics.

    The understanding that it is necessary to unite against the financial oligarchy and various structures serving its interests should not only enter the consciousness of those disadvantaged by inequality, but also induce them to defend their rights in a civilized manner. History has already brought the parties to the barricades. So it's time for both of them to remember the words of John F. Kennedy: "Those who oppose a peaceful revolution will receive a violent one" ...

    This fruit does not accept anything else.
    What are these - supranational regulators?
    Who creates them?
    Their functionality?
    Capabilities?
    Real leverage and influence?
    Legitimacy?
    And who transfers what powers, from their "national" and sovereign ones?
    If TNCs operate in five or six countries, then these are the countries that regulate their activities?
    And if in some countries these TNCs do not operate, then what do they care about what the TNCs are doing?
    In short, the liberal expert scolded the liberal bookkeeper.

    In our country, there are no others and are not expected.

The adoption of market laws, the protection of sovereignty, the development of industry and the agricultural sector, so that food would be cheaper and tastier, and the industry would give .... I no longer remember what kind of industry it is !!! She is no longer and will not be. If it does, it will be a new industrialization. And it has long been said - the second bottom is broken.

    It is funny when the liquidators are called liberals. It has not been proven that a foreign-citizen board of shareholders can select more qualified managers than the ministry's personnel department. Ruslan is right, even from an accounting point of view, the reduction in spending on health care, education and culture, not to mention the income of the population, is a direct deduction from the country's GDP (Gross Domestic Product, not Vladimir Vladimirovich P.). And most importantly, how does all this public ensure the country's monetary security, since now all reserves that exceed the real standards by about four times can be zeroed at any time. And further. A new course is needed: Roosevelt was right when he named the reasons for the crisis of the last century: “the paralysis that fettered the economy after that unfortunate decade when people were seized by the pursuit of unearned wealth, and their leaders in all spheres of activity did not want to know anything except their own selfish interests and easy money. " Tough measures are needed: freeze the payment of dividends until the end of the crisis, bank holidays, the obligatory buyout of shares in strategic industries from foreign capital, the blockade of the Atlantic on the transport of LNG by tankers, the demand for the withdrawal of American troops in accordance with Yalta from our sector of German occupation.

    Oh, these crafty "bookkeepers", both curls and Reshetics, and between them the impoverished population of the country rushes about, against the backdrop of a shrinking economic "blanket". The economic system is built to serve the dominant political class. (When they start tra-la-la about "politics is determined by the economy," it's just Feedback). The dominant political class is the new Russian nobility. The rest are fiscal slaves, nothing more. Well, there are also "personnel serving the lordship", so 10-12 million, most of which feed in Moscow, a smaller part - in St. Petersburg. and much less - in millionaires. That's all. And a reasonable question arises: what kind of economy do the Kudrins (liberals) and the Zaputintsy mean? What is the purpose of this economy-? Well, certainly not the rise in the welfare of the average citizen. It's just the opposite. From half-dead sheep they cut the last hairs - from state employees, and from employees, and from small and medium-sized businesses. The situation in terms of the survival of the state and its economy is such that while society still has the opportunity to allow small and medium-sized businesses to be used as a stone on which to rely and push off, BUT .. this is under the CONDITION that private property will be completely expelled from large and super-large business, and assets were nationalized and transferred under state administration with a socialist ideological imperative. Until it's too late for the country. If we further allow large private capital to survive the state budget under the guise of "state corporations", besides feeding numerous "contractors" and "subcontractors" according to the state's pie, we will come to a terrible technological lag, similar to the situation of the 1920s in comparison ... It is as if in 1919, against the background of devastation, the "whites" would take power. And then, for sure, there will be only "war communism" (which we would not want) or death. The Soviet backlog will finally dry up, and the new current "effective managers" do not know how to build anything real. The Kerch Bridge does not count - this is not Economics from the word at all.
