Question price and question price

Or maybe the prices are up against Covid?



I would like to warn readers not to look for deep analysis and reasoning about the macroeconomic reasons for the rise in prices in this article. I will confine myself to the on-duty statement that the beautiful inflation figures that are reported to us from the Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance and the Federal State Statistics Service have never agreed with what people see on the shelves of stores, and even more so - of markets.

The rise in prices for socially significant goods has always been, shall we say, tangible and felt much faster and stronger than anything else. And what does it matter to people with a small and even average income to the point that somewhere the price of iPhones or Maybachs has fallen sharply.

It is more important for them how much sausage and potatoes cost, and, sorry, vodka. However, on New Year's Eve, prices for champagne are of concern. Fortunately, nowadays it is not in short supply, as it once happened, and it was not at all a pity to pay someone a five or even a chervonets (full-fledged Soviet) for the coveted bottle of Sovetskoye.

Interestingly, unlike large departments, the Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation did not promise Russians anything good with the main prices even before the two waves of coronavirus (see graph).


As you can see, there was no place for bread or champagne in the layouts of the experts, but it didn't make it any easier. And besides, all the indicators were badly spoiled by the damned SARS-CoV-2 - a coronavirus, ready to mutate almost indefinitely. Although a lot can now be attributed to covid.

Did the prices go away too?


Personally, it seems to me that viral hysteria in reality simply distracts from real social, environmental and other problems. As once cinema in the West. And one of the factors that now dictate the prices of goods from the grocery basket is not by chance self-isolation.

First, it is massive, now it is generally limited, but the demand for food delivery is supporting. And online shoppers are a special kind of public. But I will not blame these people for all our problems.


They also provided many jobs, and not only from among the migrant workers. Students and even some of the schoolchildren saddled their bicycles and put on multi-colored backpacks with heating or, conversely, with cooling.

It is not easy to say how much more expensive take-away products can influence the rise in prices in regular retail. But it does - there is no doubt about it. And it affects negatively.

The reduction in the assortment and the washing out of cheap products both in supermarkets and in small stores has been noticed by many and almost everywhere. There is no need to talk about markets in this regard. By the way, in Moscow, which is very expensive, traditional collective farm markets from the “former times” can now be counted on one hand.

Not so long ago I had to get acquainted with the new capital "Central Market". Someone smartly relocated him from the Nikulinsky circus a little closer to the center - to Trubnaya Square. It is now a cross between Chinatown and a food court in a large mall.


And it was actually built on the place where in the distant years the pub at the exit from the gangster Grachevka was replaced by a public toilet next to the tram circle, or rather, a semicircle. “Tsentralny” in its modern edition practically does not resemble its famous predecessor in almost anything (especially with prices for habitually market goods).

Meanwhile, the public not only in Moscow, continues to suffer for restaurants and cafes, many of which Rospotrebnadzor is about to close for the holidays. But there you have to pay for "all the same" almost exorbitantly. So, maybe it's not a matter of remote control at all?

It's not about the price, it's about the cost


Food prices are a litmus test of the state of agriculture. We have been convinced for many years that it is on the rise. But why, then, are prices on a continuous rise, and a village in the outback is quietly dying out.

They are rescued by migrant workers of a different kind - rural ones, where the leading roles are not Central Asians and Caucasians, but Koreans and other guests from afar. And also - neighbors in the former USSR, who have everything in order with the cost price. Those who have access to markets that are far enough from industrial centers know very well that prices there are several times lower, especially with bulk purchases.


And in capitals and large cities, surrounded by cordons, "robbed", including in uniform, the low cost of agricultural products on the price tags is not reflected in any way. Now there is a persistent feeling that large buyers from the food industry have actually brought rural producers to their knees.

In any case, sales are necessary for them, and a lot, unlike, for example, grain, you simply cannot put in the bins. And if this was somehow reflected on the shelves, a lot could be endured.

Sugar and butter are not bread or meat


At the end of the pandemic 2020, the first thing to do was to raise the price of sugar. Everything is not difficult here - people need to sweeten the eerie realities with a closed border, closed cafes and restaurants. And it doesn't matter that someone will cook cakes and pastries at home, and someone will shop through the network. If there is demand, there is also an increase in prices.

Sugar followed with its jump in prices, followed by butter. Vegetable is not creamy, where Belarusian supplies prevent domestic producers from roaming around, who have been caught in cartel agreements more than once.

With butter, too, everything is transparent - the demand is almost peak: both for baking and for salads you need olive, sunflower, and even sesame with hemp. Where the latter is obtained from is a mystery, but this is so, by the way I had to.

Now all the media are convincing us that both sugar and butter have fallen in price, but this is hard to believe. I saw such a cute layout somewhere in the networks or on provincial resources. The product is not important.

So:

“It was 85, now it is 130, and now they can hardly get even for 100? Think for yourself - has it fallen in price by 30 rubles, or has it still risen in price by 15? "

For those who report to the top, of course, "cheaper" is preferable.

I wrote about bread and meat above for a reason - they also do not get cheaper, but no one will shout about it. We tolerate. And we will endure until it goes off scale completely.

A real rise in prices due to the fall in the ruble exchange rate, postponed for now, will happen as soon as everything starts to move. And not only I do not doubt this, but practically all experts. They have a word.

They don't argue about prices


She promised not to go deep into analytics, but I have to. Retail prices don't just depend on what the wholesalers offer. The latter would definitely be happy to trim everything under the rising dollar. As they say, nothing personal - just business.

However, over the years of sanctions and trade wars through import substitution, the import component in prices for what people most need was still managed to drop significantly below 30-40 percent. Hence the conclusion - an increase in the exchange rate even by 25-30 percent should not respond on the shelves by more than 10-12 percent.

Pay attention - this is exactly what scientists predicted for 2020. So we have to come to terms, although the fallen demand could make producers, wholesalers and retailers move.

But on New Year's Eve, demand has almost recovered, largely due to the fact that people stay home, and simply have to buy in full. Experts hardly dispute whether prices will continue to rise. Will stop after the holidays, but not for long.

Many in general come up with the idea of ​​introducing ration cards, God forbid us from such a misfortune. But the State Duma has already made it clear that

"In those business segments that are tied to food, food",

all the rest are simply recouped.

So, Nikolay Kalmykov, an expert of the parliamentary committee on economic policy, believes that thus traders

“They use the advantageous position of the grocery sector, which will not remain without demand. And it is precisely from the grocery sector that they are "trying to get lost profits."

Finally, I will allow myself one more "macroeconomic" paradox. In Russia, unlike the rest of the world, where it is believed that

“Expensive dollar means cheap products”,

with the growth of the American currency, everything, on the contrary, only becomes more expensive. And what goes on the shelves, and, of course, gasoline.

How could it be otherwise, but this is a separate topic.

          Odysseus, good morning! I live in a small town, so you can't buy summer cottages from us now. We bought ourselves for a penny in the early nineties, more than half of the plots were "overgrown with herbs, wormwood and weeds .." - now from early spring to late autumn life boiling, everyone is growing something, digging, watered .. And what to do, at least some help in our time. They quickly returned us all to the subsidiary farm - "stop whining, go to work." Their dream has come true - we work from spring to winters in the beds, we do not unbend))

              In what year - count
              In what land - guess
              On the highway
              Seven peasants came together:
              Seven temporarily liable,
              A smart province,
              Terpigoreva county,
              Empty-voiced volost,
              From adjacent villages:
              Zablatova, Dyryaeva,
              Razutov, Znobishin,
              Gorelova, Neelova -
              Failure identity,
              We got together and argued:
              Who lives happily,
              Free in Russia?

              Roman said: to the landowner,
              Demyan said: to the official,
              Luke said: ass.

              Said the brothers Gubina,
              Ivan and Mitrodor.
              Old Man groined with Pakhom
              And he said, looking into the earth:
              To the noble boyar,
              To the Minister of the Tsar.

            Recent FOM statistics only confirm that Russians are completely mired in poverty:

            - Only 1% consider themselves rich;
            - 13,5% of the population live in a zone of outright poverty;
            - 33% call themselves poor, they live on less than $ 9 a day;
            - Every fifth does not know what to expect;
            - Only one in six expects to break out of the poverty trap;
            - Incomes from 100 thousand rubles only for 3% of the population;
            - 20% are sure that in the next 3-5 years they will live the same way as now, that is, they will also live in poverty. They receive up to 14 thousand rubles a month, which is $ 6,3 per day. sad

              This is all clear, but not the main thing. It is necessary to start with real statistics - the number of the population, its needs and who provides these needs, in the sense of their production or foreign countries and at what price. It will be immediately clear what kind of production we need, hence the employment of the population and wages. And the country will gradually develop. And then you go to a store or to the market - it's entirely China and I'm just talking about consumer goods. And how many large industries use imports, including industrial electronics. In general, there is a lot of work to do, just have time to turn around, and our economic and financial sectors are crumpled and can't say a damn thing about the state of the economy.

And what was the state of affairs in the country, what was it about the economy to develop with these stupid boys in short pants. After all, these idiots declared the abandonment of their production in favor of imports. So the GDP had to restore production practically from scratch. You see for yourself in the same defense industry as it turns out. The striped handles have something to shake, although they hiss like snakes.

                    About "restoring from scratch" you probably got excited. It was in the fat "zero" that the bulk of the enterprises that had worked until now, despite the efforts of the blue-nosed, rested in the Bose. Defense? That in 20 years it gave out really advanced, and not Soviet alterations / renames? How many aircraft of the 5th generation, warships of the 1st and 2nd rank, UAB, "Armat", individual night vision devices / sights have been received for equipment? The striped handles shake only in the imagination of the Putriots. Do not pass off other people's mantras as reality.

              In 500 km from the capital, for obvious reasons, land prices soared. In the district centers of nearby areas there is no work at all, and if there was no vegetable garden, then there will be no more. So the wretches go to hunchback either to the regional center, or to the gold-domed, or to the "north". And then families disintegrate and people die like flies from the manifold increased physical exertion and nervous overstrain. hi

        This is because any "surcharges" are "trumpeted and fanfare" in advance, so that the hucksters have time to raise prices. And the garden and the dacha will be saved exactly as long as they have not yet been imposed with "draconian" taxes. Growing your own, you reduce the demand for sales from "effective" monopolists and the so-called. "states". By analogy with the disadvantage for the bank of early repayment of the loan - the lost profit.

      1. The ruble fell by 30%, hence the dollar value of food has increased. All manufacturers and wholesalers began mass export of products abroad, provoking a shortage in the wholesale market. Listen to the meeting with VVP, he told Mishustin that. The government began to introduce export duties on agricultural products.
      2. It is no secret that seeds, machinery, fertilizers, and much more, up to breeding material, are purchased abroad. And the ruble collapsed. The cost has increased. It is stupid for a manufacturer to sell on the domestic market.
      3. There is already a food shortage. So far, it is expressed in a decrease in the range. Everyone noticed this. A simple example is tomato paste. Even in large chains there are no more than 2-3 product names.
      The bottom line will be the same - food prices will align with global prices. It's unavoidable. Either producers will reduce production to avoid losses, or drive abroad above the quota. Output? It is necessary to drive the entire economic bloc out into the cold, especially the "thieves" and those who bought a warm place in the ministry.

        I understand that our state is already a commercial company, but the milking herd must be fed too.


        Incorrect analogy. The herd is not milked, and each of its representatives was tied to a huge iron crane and allowed in a circle. A piece of iron on the surface of the earth is spinning, the mechanism is working, oil is being produced. It is just the main thing for them to pump out oil and gas, for which the herd as a producer and a guard is necessary, and then they are not interested in the fate of the herd according to the well-known principle "they did not enter the market."
        Therefore, it turns out that since there is no interest in the long-term development of the herd, then it eats out a miserable existence.

            If “we ourselves are to blame,” it means “we are doing something wrong,” as a result of which we get problems. Since “we are doing something wrong,” it means that we know how to act correctly to eliminate problems. And how should you act correctly?

    In fact, cards are an element of equalizing distribution when a part of society has no opportunity to purchase goods or few of the goods themselves. There is nothing wrong with them, moreover, in such situations they are even necessary. This is bad, but better than just not looking at the full shelves or eating modern low-value foods that quickly destroy health.
    But their introduction requires fixed prices and product quality control. Without this, the cards will give nothing. That is, in our conditions, stories about their introduction are just an element of manipulation.
    As for the rise in prices, it goes without saying that it will continue. The stories about "freezing" are just a deception calculated at all for the close-minded - nickel-not controlled networks were raised by 30%, then "frozen" for 3 months, and then "released" again.
    As for the connection between the rise in prices and the dollar, since almost all goods are imported either directly or indirectly (spare parts, tractors, seeds, etc.), no one controls trading networks, and the tax and corruption burden is only growing, it is clear that prices will rise following the dollar.

      1. When oil prices rise, the stump is clear, since gasoline is made from oil, then gas prices should rise.
      2. When oil prices fall, oil companies have to raise gas prices to compensate for the fall in oil price revenues.
      3. When oil prices are stable, gas prices rise because of inflation.

      Now we need to add some positive to this sad picture, because
      "positive in networks is needed 100%, which is often not enough",

      You don't need to think of anything. In the USSR, food prices were regulated by the state. And that bread, that sugar, that cereals were cheap. True, we will not mention how this affected the well-being of the villager. Under capitalism, prices can only be adjusted by fiscal methods by organizing a control structure over them. To prevent the price from growing arbitrarily, VAT must be paid huckster the seller ... And he, in turn, is set such that when the price rises above the specified percentage, the entire increase goes to the state's income (with various other nuances).
      But you know what the guarantor said (said)? He argued that if we start raising taxes for the rich, they will take their business into the shadows.

          And who says that you need to fix prices for food? First, it is necessary to find out why the UES of the RSFSR has turned into a fragmented gathering of electricity producers and sales offices and why, in this regard, electricity tariffs are set and raised by collusion (who needs to be found out)? Then, to clarify why fuel, the cost of which is in the range of 11-18 rubles per liter and which is extracted and processed from domestic raw materials in the territory of the Russian Federation, is sold here at three times overstated prices? And when all this is clarified, we will determine the size of the transport component in the price of the final product, and the size of its energy component. And, after all, let's figure out who turned Russia with its natural resources into a country of “humiliated and insulted” (humiliated by poverty and insulted by lawlessness) and why there is no place for industrial enterprises on its territory, but there are only places for shopping and entertainment centers of various banks and “banchiks” ". Maybe they will come to the surface - these are the reasons for "economic and financial stability" according to Kudrin, Siluanov, Manturov and other "pillars" of Russian statehood ...

      And why would we say tomatoes grown in a town with 10k residents should be more expensive than those that came from Argentina. The delivery leverage is shorter for the first ones though. In my town there is a small sugar factory around the field with beets and why the prices for sugar in my town are then lifted up above the roof and are only growing. Although they should stand rooted to the spot unnecessarily all their own. The state itself is provoking price increases with its laws aimed at developing the personal enrichment of a handful of moneybags and not at developing the country as a whole.

Here it is just right to really break everything to hell and rewrite everything from scratch, the tax and admin and the criminal codes, taking into account those articles that did not work, sabotagely slowed down and encouraged the continuation of the mess in favor of a minority of moneybags. Evolutionarily to change something, the country will have time to fall apart by that time. People would be glad to work for themselves and for an uncle, but uncles are driven by laws and unspoken rules into conditions of only price hikes and profit sharing with officials and the state, which encourages this mess only for personal income.

    In Russia, in contrast to the rest of the world, where it is believed that “an expensive dollar is cheap products”, with the growth of the American currency, everything, on the contrary, only becomes more expensive.

    Why is this verbiage, in what kind of "all over the world"?
    In Canada, for example, prices for imported food are growing by leaps and bounds. From apples and cucumbers to grapes and tomatoes.
    They are brought from the States and Latin America (mainly Mexico). The American dollar is becoming more expensive, so you need to pay more Canadian dollars in the store, what is not clear to the author here? And European goods are becoming more expensive, although an agreement has been signed with the EU on duty-free trade.
    I wrote about bread and meat above for a reason - they also do not get cheaper

    And where is it getting cheaper, in which countries? As "covid" broke out in the spring, the authorities closed most of the meat processing plants in Canada under the pretext of quarantine. The rest raised their selling prices.

    Of course, the profit factor is important. Heat, electricity, oil, bread conditionally pass through tenths of a hand. And in each link of this chain you need to get your own benefit. After all, the concern about rising prices is not caused by the fact that people have less money. And the fact that they began to consume less. It is not at all profitable for suppliers that we save on anything.

    Price increases are the natural state of capitalism. This is the only way the bourgeois can make the people work sutra until night and from night to morning, telling us tales that those who work a lot can become rich, forgetting to mention that so that everyone does not become rich and there is no one to work, the bourgeois there is also a mechanism for devaluing our savings - inflation, which occurs at the behest of financiers, when the amount of savings from citizens exceeds the permissible limit.

Moreover, after the collapse of the USSR at the suggestion of the West, the West is actively slaughtering its own middle class, which is no longer needed as a "showcase for the achievements of developed capitalism."

      The "how" question is purely technical. The main question is what should be an adequate system with which it is planned to replace the inadequate system. So far, one thing is clear that the Soviet system in the form in which it existed is also not adequate, since it allowed traitors to climb to the very top, who initiated the process of destruction of the system.
      It would be extremely stupid to even try to build the USSR-2 in order to be subsequently destroyed at the suggestion of eloquent tractor drivers.

    There is no point in such analytics for one simple reason, because the capitalist economy is always controlled manually, and the main driving motive in it is greed, which means that it will not be possible to make accurate forecasts. This was clearly seen in 2008, after which a lot of books were published, popularly explaining the reasons for the crisis, whereas before 2008, in fact, only one scientist publicly announced the impending crisis. The widely advertised assertion that there is a certain market that regulates itself, obeying the supposedly existing supposedly unshakable laws, is a myth that is actively imposed by the media, i.e. professional liars, as well as people who call themselves scientists in such invented "sciences" as economics, sociology, political science.

    The following factor is additionally imposed on the situation in the Russian Federation: for Russian oligarchs, the center of their vital interests is in the West, while in the Russian Federation they need a cheap labor force, which is a competitive advantage for their personal business. Knowing this main factor, one can abandon all the vain attempts to understand why prices are constantly rising, why small business is being rotten, and why the fight against poverty is in reality a struggle to increase the incidence of poverty. Because all this is beneficial to the owners of the system. As they say, nothing personal, just business.

    There is a reason, having a hearty meal, to sit with a gadget in an embrace, and check in again on your favorite site. Fortunately, the corresponding article arrived in time, with a leitmotif that has become so familiar to VO. "Fuck the gang! Give socialism in all its glory!"
    And now we read all the same, and all about the same, they say, Putin completely destroyed the country, sold it, sold himself along with his State Council and ministers to boot.
    Along the way, letting a stingy man's tears go, let us remember with a kind word those who tried to compete with GDP in the elections in March 2018. But one rested in the Bose, the other was lost in vain ... crying
    But our regulars did not go to VO to cry. No! They are all, as one, ready to cut the truth, calling things by their proper names!
    And they begin to remember Comrade Stalin, and those glorious times when prices were regularly reduced, and the shelves in stores were bursting with cheap and high-quality products grown and collected by happy and beautiful collective farmers from the film "Kuban Cossacks". Or even worse, judging by the film "Ivan Brovkin on the Virgin Land", one could earn money for a "Victory" car in a season. What? Not "Moskvich 401", and not a Lisaped.
    What's "Victory"? Under Brezhnev, every third person owned a Zhiguli. And every fifth - "Volga". Every collective farmer had a UAZ.
    But the stupid and short-sighted people decided that this was not enough. And in 1991 he threw the cry "Let's catch up and overtake America! In everything - in space, in ballet! And sausage will cease to be a measure of happiness and status !!!"
    But something went wrong. The sausage has changed. Capitalist. Not at all as tasty as the socialist one.
    And even more ... A product produced under capitalism cannot be better than the same product produced at an enterprise where shock workers of socialist labor are often employed! This cannot be because it can never be! If only because the "shock workers" at the meat-packing plant need to "supply" relatives and friends with the products of their native enterprise, which they carried in trousers, and wrapped around themselves, and thrown over the fence in a conventional place at a conventional time. Fortunately, surveillance cameras under socialism were superfluous.
    And that the price was scanty, due to fixed prices and salaries, it doesn't matter. It is important that the electricity cost consumers 2 kopecks per kilowatt hour. This is for you, gentlemen, comrades, not the current rates, extortionate.
    And finally ... Life has gone kind of dull. There is no shortage, sausages cannot be endured from the meat-packing plant, the people vegetate in despondency.
    But! The people are waiting for their deliverer. From a gang of thieves and corrupt officials. Just like in neighboring Banderostan - they got rid of the Chief Thief, and healed happily. And that's all. From Lvov to Donetsk, from Lugansk to Odessa.
    That would be so for us!

So: you don't need to be an analyst, you just need to go to the store and look at the price tags with a sober look, take your time and think a little, and compare HOW prices grow rapidly. And there is no need even to prove my forecasts about further price increases under the current leadership of the economic bloc in the government and the imminent collapse of our economy. And the injection of HYSTERIA with an almost ordinary increase in the level of SARS is generally a song! why, I'm wondering, but on TV there are no opinions of really literate, practicing doctors? but Malysheva's opinion is welcome, although in the medical community she was never considered a doctor, if only she can immediately after graduation from Alma mater ... why, when publishing the numbers of the dead, they cunningly conceal the number of deaths from cardiovascular diseases and oncology, and write all of them in bulk in dead from the "crown"? And after all, many more patients died from the failure to provide medical assistance on time than from the "crown"!

    ... 3,9 trillion of the budget as of 26.12.20/5/XNUMX has not been disbursed. I do not think that they will master it in XNUMX days. recourseOr is it a budget deficit? And 20 is a surplus year? That is, they collected more taxes than they spent. Who knows? hi

    What can we talk about when the Russian ruble is really a fictitious "currency" - a piece of paper that has long been tied to the US Federal Reserve, and even to the world. oil prices ???
    There can be NOTHING ELSE in this country, because in this system of financial coordinates, it is a semi-colonial country, which is still allowed to play the game of "statehood". Everything else is primitive propaganda for internal "consumption".

    I apologize for the literary digression, but I involuntarily have to turn again to our immortal literary classics. When famine struck in the city, the mayor, Brigadier Ferdyshchenko, sent his “beloved” ones to encourage the people. They went around and consoled everyone; “We are beautiful people!” Said some, “we can endure ... What can I say!” Added others, “we can endure! Therefore, we know that we have bosses! Do you think how? - encouraged the third, - do you think the authorities are asleep? No, brother, it slumbers with one eye, and with the other, go wherever it sees! " Well, then the story is well-known: in that city the girl was accused of hunger and killed, but not immediately, but after the "information" fakes, in modern terms. But in our country, after a century and a half, something similar happened: we read other people's books to the point that one prominent figure even declared that Russia began to lag behind Europe since the century .I. don't believe me - read chapter 8 in E.T. Gaidar "Long Time" (publishing house "Delo", 2005 - 656 pages).

    We have feudal capitalism, the authorities are guarding their interests. Therefore, for ordinary citizens, no significant improvement in life can be expected or hoped. No matter how much they scratch out about any improvements in the zombie box

    the beautiful inflation figures that are reported to us from the Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance and the Rosstat have never coincided with what people see on store shelves

    People believe their eyes, and not the statistics, especially the Central Bank, this incomprehensible structure.

    It is more important for them how much sausage and potatoes cost, and, sorry, vodka. However, on New Year's Eve, prices for champagne are of concern

    I am not interested in alcohol prices, I don’t drink for a long time.
    But on cigarettes is a completely different matter, as I can not throw this infection.

    viral hysteria in reality simply distracts from real social, environmental and other problems

    Well, I don't know ... When the amendments to the Constitution were introduced, there was no hysteria about the coronavirus ... Although, probably, the coronavirus also played a role here. request

    It's simple. Both sellers and suppliers do not see Russia as a major market worth fighting for and worth holding even with lower prices. They are all wallet and trade interest in the west and think in dollars. And here - sanctions and a spurt of the rate up because of someone's mediocre foreign policy. This caused damage. And at the expense of Russia, these simply compensate them.

    Yesterday they posted a report on RBC that in 2019 (by the way, there was almost zero inflation), the salaries were raised by 10-11% to officials, which suggests that if you want to focus on real price increases, you need to watch the indexation of officials for yourself. It will be interesting to look at the indexation of the state apparatus for 2020. There is infa, but this is not accurate)) that part of the indexation is carried out and benefits for paying utility bills and other contributions
