Deripaska does not remember the Russian default. But it predicts a quasi default to America

35

Everyone I don't owe



Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska has deeply puzzled the business press in Russia, and not only in Russia, by applying the definition of quasi-default to the United States. It seems that the businessman has completely forgotten the default that happened in Russia more than twenty years ago.

It's a little strange, even though he had finished Pleshka for only two years then, he was already driving in full at Siberian Aluminum, which later turned into Basic Element. Recall that in 1998 there was no complete default in Russia.

Proceeding from the fact that the prefix "quasi" used by Oleg Deripaska means in Russian only almost, as if or even pseudo, there was no quasi-default in our country, which the Russian oligarch spoke of about the United States.

Something like a semi-default happened in Russia, when the refusal to pay the debts accumulated on the GKO-OFZ pyramid (recall - state short-term obligations and federal loan bonds), was in fact only specifically “ours”.

Foreign creditors, as you know, suffered from the August events 23 years ago, as they say, to a minimum. Of the foreign investors, only those who seriously invested in securities, the record profitability of which could attract only speculators or gamblers, who had not played enough in MMM, really burned out.

Serious buyers associated with pension and insurance capital could not invest in the “Russian pyramid” of GKO-OFZ, by definition, this was not allowed by the strict American standards. However, even these standards did not prevent the famous funds Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae from going bankrupt ten years later, no less scandalous.


Why not, and why yes


Why has the co-owner of the essentially transnational corporations Rusal and Basic Element not dared to scare the Americans with a simple default? Actually, it would be nice to scare those who actually robbed him not so long ago, at the same time robbing the Russian industry.

But they won't be scared, “no,” that's what is insulting, and our media will swallow this for a sweet soul. By the way, it is probably no coincidence that the business press is talking about the "robbery of Deripaska" or even "American nationalization", and together with it - our publication (Fire, water and aluminum pipes), wrote still a little less actively than about the last maxims of the businessman.

But this was by no means because then he had not yet been squeezed out of the top lists of the richest Russian entrepreneurs. One of the most influential Russian oligarchs, whose business more than half has a very indirect relationship to Russia, has become very active in the media space in recent months.

Apparently, this is due to the fact that his hands are now practically not tied, and it is easy to say "yes". And Oleg Deripaska finally came to his senses after his personal quasi-default. After all, almost everything for which he could seriously fear before, in fact, got out of his control.

The businessman, who is generally not easy to call Russian, stated quite self-confidently that

"An increase in US borrowing in foreign markets may lead the country to a quasi-default."

I was really surprised - to be honest, more than half of the American debt is in a state of quasi-default and now.

Not a dollar, not a cent


Dealing with Deripaska's short speech, one cannot ignore the very structure of the large US debt, which Voennoye Obozreniye also wrote about more than once (Washington: two hundred years with outstretched hand). So, in front of its own citizens, the American government is constantly playing in a neat debtor.

In any case, she always paid the due interest and will pay regularly. But foreign creditors from overseas are never guaranteed anything - to lend to the states is the right of any citizen of the planet.

Deripaska does not remember the Russian default. But it predicts a quasi default to America

For this purpose, firstly, trillions of dollars are launched all over the world as primary level IOUs, moreover, receipts that are getting cheaper every year. The dollar at the beginning of the XNUMXth century was dozens of times higher in purchasing power than the current dollar, but this does not bother or scare anyone.

But this is a quasi-default. Continuous only. And secondly, a wide variety of American securities circulate around the world, from traveler's checks to federal loan bonds and shares of companies and banks. If they also rise in price, then only locally, and in the long term, this is also an object of quasi-default.

This is not Russia


Oleg Deripaska, most likely, is offended that, having actually given the Americans a lot of his assets, he will not be affected in any way by the next package of measures to stimulate the US economy. But there, according to his own estimate, the price of the issue is more than a trillion dollars.

In Russia, with all the anti-crisis and anti-sanction programs of support, Deripaska's structures are on the first lines in the lists of "supported" from the state treasury. And in the United States, there are no special lists, and if the same structures appear, then this does not concern our sufferer.

Deripaska, however, is interested in where Biden is going to take that same trillion from. It's hard to believe that this really matters. To legalize the next throwing of hands into other people's pockets is something that Washington knows how to do better than others.

And even if the US national debt is already approaching $ 30 trillion, which does not seem to bother the Russian businessman too much. He himself made it clear that no one is planning to reduce debts, although Biden's predecessor in the presidency, the completely banned Trump, was just starting to fight for reduction.

Anyone can actually predict a quasi-default for the United States. The forecast is not a performance obligation, especially since it may even come true. You never know who and for what the Americans will decide to “forgive” their debts. A series of color revolutions in the Near and Middle East, and even how Yugoslavia was bombed, shows that it is as easy as shelling pears.

It remains to draw the attention of readers to how our "protector of the people's good" admitted that he really

“I would like (the money was taken) from the budgets of the political adventurers of the State Department and the hawks from the Pentagon, but it doesn’t look like it. These people feel quite comfortable under the new administration. "

We have great doubts that Russia is very different from the United States in this respect. Well, thanks to Oleg Deripaska, at least in some ways we are similar. We also thank him for placing his hopes on the Chinese digital yuan - another hero of our publications (Yuan with a human face. Who's Afraid of Chinese Cryptocurrency).

The spread of the digital yuan, according to Mr. Deripaska, will help our country get out of the press of sanctions. And all because the digital Chinese yuan, apparently, “will seriously move the dollar in world trade».

For our part, we note that the yuan, despite such a possibility, may at the same time "help" Russia to find itself under a different pressure - already the Chinese financial and economic expansion.

        The dollar at the beginning of the XNUMXth century was dozens of times higher in purchasing power than the current dollar, but this does not bother or scare anyone.

        And because the dollar is the most liquid instrument and the strongest currency. Loses in value about 1% per year. Only the Soviet ruble (after 1961) backed by gold and precious metals was stronger than it.


        For over 100 years, the dollar has lost a lot in value. But it was not denominated, despite two world wars and the Great Depression. The only denomination was 150 years ago during the state civil war. But the Russian ruble, without any wars over the past 30 years, has lost dozens of times in value and was denominated twice.

          Any empire goes through a period of prosperity and a period of decline. And before sunset, it decomposes. Given that the dollar is her weapon, a new weapon will be found against him.

            Controversial definition. USA is a federation. They have states as separate states with their own laws. There is no such thing in Russia. And Russia looks more like an empire with its pronounced center and rigid vertical of power.

        Here it is necessary to clearly understand, xy from "Mr." Deripaska, as the wallet of the ebnovodov. He spoke about the "plan for the utilization of Russia" as early as 2006, if the turboputriots compare certain facts, then the oil painting will open, like that seizam. Deripaska-prikhodko. The article was titled approx. "Let the marginal intellectuals defend Baikal .."

      Mr. Deripaska needs to understand:
      1. It is one thing to get the assets of Soviet industry with the help of "cunning schemes" - it is quite another to build enterprises yourself.
      2. If something turned out to be "squeezed out and taken offshore" it does not mean that you are a genius and a smart industrialist.
      In general, it is an amazing phenomenon to consider yourself the arbiter of destinies, only on the basis that he was able, with someone's help, to obtain Soviet raw materials assets.

          It should be noted that Valya Yumashev is the current adviser to the President and, according to the Austrian Citizenship Law, a person who has provided guarantees of refusal from the previous one can receive it. Thus, Yumashev had to give up the RF passport. Perhaps this explains the semi-formal status of an adviser on a "voluntary basis", which allows one to have an office in Staraya Square, but at the same time does not oblige to report on property and income.
          Through the Cypriot offshore company Valtania Holdings, Yumashev at the beginning of the 40251296s became a co-owner of the Imperia Tower skyscraper in Moscow City. The name Valtania is formed from a combination of the names of the Yumashevs: Valya and Tanya. It is reported by Rambler.

        The Russian so-called "successful" near-Kremlin business is built according to the scheme: "Personalization of profits and nationalization of losses." Well, Deripaska ... he is actually an expert on "fish". wink And then, as practice has shown, even according to it ("fish"), he is so, himself a "specialist" - the heads of the power departments of Russia had to fly to the United States, "take care of the fish" ... lol

    I remember how this bastard seized our Bratsk LPK - it didn’t get through, but for three days they managed there, resetting the accounts, and in Novaya Igirma, an attempt to seize and subsequently bankrupt LDK and Igirma-Tairiku altogether failed - they barely carried their feet, this ghoul did not take into account the fact that, the life of the village depends on these enterprises - the workers (residents of the village) blocked the approaches to the enterprises with equipment and came with weapons - there is a taiga village in almost every house)). Irkutskenergo shares (controlling stake) owned by the Irkutsk region. Received for nothing from the then governor Govorin, for financing his elections - as a result, the increase in the cost of electricity for all, except for his enterprises, on which social programs were curtailed and the so-called "optimization" was carried out - earlier in Bratsk, at BrAZ, either by pull or for a bribe in the form of the first three salaries, they were arranged, and now they call on the creeping line - there are few who want to ruin their health for the pennies that are now being paid there and no benefits. The shkonar has been crying for him for a long time.

        No no. The idea is sensible. It is precisely the compensation to appoint. In the amount of 100% of the value of assets, plus 100% of the profit received from assets, and plus 100% of the interest accrued for all years, on the profit received from assets. lol

    Actually, it would be nice to scare those who actually robbed him not so long ago, at the same time robbing the Russian industry.
    I think that frightening those who are used to frightening themselves is a thankless, unconstructive, and, most importantly, useless task! Why shouldn't the Russian Federation repeat the American trick with its ears and return its assets to the public sector? Moreover, they are on our territory! Only with Russia can such an incident happen that its natural resources are controlled from the outside (I do not consider resourceless states)! Thanks for the article, although I don't want to hear about Deripaska, but the topic is necessary, especially about our "not our" assets.

    What happened on August 12, 1998 was default (failure to fulfill its obligations) in the truest sense of the word, the state refused to buy back GKOs (government short-term bonds), that is, securities. Because of this, the dollar rate quadrupled in one day.

    There will be no quasi-default because the dollar is indestructible. It is no longer just a currency, it is a unit of measurement. And just as a meter cannot become shorter and a kilogram lighter, so the dollar cannot become cheaper. Its course is unshakable, no one and nothing can even shake it. That is, it is not the dollar rate that is falling or growing. These other currencies are relatively bouncing against the dollar, the most stable currency in history. There is nothing more eternal than America and the dollar.
