Martin Gilman: Russia is not an economy set on an “oil needle”



WASHINGTON - “Oil revenues do not determine Russia's GDP,” said Martin Gilman during a lecture at Johns Hopkins University on Wednesday in Washington. The American economist who represented the IMF in Russia on 1996-2002, the author of the book Default, which could not have happened, now a professor at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, does not share the pessimistic predictions that the Russian economy "has entered a dead loop of low investment and massive outflow capital. "

Gilman cited this formulation by enumerating common myths about the Russian economy, which, in his opinion, require immediate debunking.

Acknowledging that the business climate in Russia is not the most favorable, Gilman stresses that the private sector in Russia is developing and remains dynamic.

“After the crisis, the Russian economy, to the surprise of many, began to flourish in many unexpected sectors - transport, banking, insurance and many others. This is the future of the Russian economy, ”Gilman believes.

The perception that the Russian economy is stagnant and will deteriorate, Gilman calls one of the common myths, no more.

“Since the crisis, the Russian economy has been demonstrating very good indicators,” the specialist said.

According to Gilman, who does not consider that everything in Russia is “tied to oil,” prices for this energy source should fall to 75 dollars and lower in order for it to have a negative impact on the Russian surplus.

“The Russian starting economic position was very good. They have a balanced budget, ”Golman said during his lecture, stressing several times that Russia’s greatest achievement is“ the lowest government debt ratio in the world. ”

Speaking about the problems of the Russian economy, Gilman stresses that capital outflow from Russia is a topic that deserves a separate discussion.

“Money is leaking because of a bad investment climate,” the economist stresses, noting that “if you compare Russia with other new markets of oil-exporting countries, it exports less capital than others”.

“When 30 percent of national capital is in savings, some of this money will inevitably leave the country,” says Martin Gilman.

He points out that Russia has very few “real economic barriers”, and the economy is quite open.

“Russia has been and remains a country with a relatively successful market economy. If there are any problems, then they lie in a political plane, ”sums up the American economist.

    when reading this article, the lines from the song immediately surfaced in my head:
    Yes planet, in your face wonder
    You cannot understand how it happened that we,
    Instead of the proud banner of a strong power,
    Got the label of the poorest country.
    It's too early to put an end to this yet.
    And look for our place in the back of the Earth.
    We will rise from hell like a phoenix from the ashes
    Because we are Russian!

      Самое забавное во всей этой истерии по поводу оттока капитала из России, "доброжелатели" почему-то относят в основном инвестиции России в другие страны. Это заведомое введение в заблуждения и на сегодняшний день фактический отток капитала из России значительно меньше чем в других экономически развитых стран, т.е. самый низкий. Но троллятиня хавает эту бредятину налету и раскидывается ею где надо и где не надо. Только толку и отдачи от этой лажи нулевая.

        By the way, do not share the source of data on capital inflows into the Russian economy, I will honestly say that this is not consistent with my vision of the economic situation in our country, suddenly I am mistaken. I will be grateful.

          " отток капитала из России значительно меньше чем в других экономически развитых стран," - Отток он и есть отток. значит куда то эти капиталы притекают?
          And by the outflow, we seem to be in a shitty position:
          ""Инвесторы продолжают распродажу российских акций. За неделю с 21 по 27 марта отток капитала из фондов, вкладывающих в Россию, достиг почти 290 млн долларов. 235 млн долларов потеряли инвестфонды, еще 54 млн долларов покинули РФ через глобальные фонды развивающихся рынков. Это крупнейшая потеря на страновом уровне, а также для самой России с сентября 2011 года, "

His performance is more like an excuse and unwillingness to offend.

        Acknowledging that the business climate in Russia is not the most favorable, Gilman stresses that the private sector in Russia is developing and remains dynamic.

        And at the end of the speech, he curtsies in the direction of fighters against totalitarian power in Russia:
        “Russia has been and remains a country with a relatively successful market economy. If there are any problems, then they lie in a political plane, ”sums up the American economist.


        All in all, this Gilman is an opportunist.

    In Russia, everything is fine, only power and politics need to be changed. And then market mechanisms will lead us to prosperity. First of all, as he says

    “After the crisis, the Russian economy, to the surprise of many, began to flourish in many unexpected sectors - transport, banking, insurance and many others. That is what is the future of the Russian economy»


    That is, in those sectors that not related to the development of own production and which are completely dependent on the speculative banking sector tied to the Fed.
    That's what the Gilmans and others want to see Russia ..

      Dear Ascetic. Gilman’s performance is, in general, not bad. Good,
      when an imported professor over the hill says something positive about Russia. Maybe someone will hear it there.
      Ну а в остальном - он же работает в Высшей школе экономики - этой нашей отечественной либеральной "крепости". Поэтому, естественно, власть в России не та, что нужно Западу. Ну и развиваться нужно, по их мнению, в тех отраслях, которые по сути обслуживают западные интересы в России...

That is what is the future of the Russian economy ”[/ quote [quote = Ascetic] about is in those sectors that are not related to the development of own production [/ quote]
      Ascetic agree, but add the following.
      Gilman says the economy is not seated on an oil needle.
      Our needle is very heterogeneous: oil, gas, nickel, titanium, aluminum, steel, coal and wood.
      Here is the basic structure of our exports, and mostly semi-finished products.
      The forest is mostly round, aluminum ingots and all that.
      Screwdriver assemblies that thrive, their products are directed to our domestic market.
      In addition to weapons, raw materials and semi-finished raw materials, we do not export anything.
      This is beneficial to everyone except us, so faces like Gilman will praise our economy.

        it seems to me that if in Japan there was everything that we have-oil, gas, etc., etc., then they would not bother too much, as well as we were trading resources. And any other country would do the same, look around, everyone sells what they have and no one is engaged in criticism. one day we are fond of self-flagellation. even not funny already

          I absolutely agree - they all trade in resources as far as possible and maximally deriving profit from it. And yelling about the oil needle is especially strong when they once again fail to take control of our oil and gas trade ... by the way, the price of oil during the collapse of the Union was about the same as during the transfer of power from Elbon to Poo. Moreover, at Pu, all resources were no longer under state control .... so that it would be time to really stop scourging ourselves after another valuable market comment from our potential friends .... :))))

        But don’t you want to remember what China started in the early 70s? What did they export? And don’t forget that China didn’t bring down how it happened to us. Think better, we had to start after something. At least even with screwdriver production. I hope you don’t believe in the bike that the rest of the world needs a strong and prosperous Russia? If you do not believe it, you should know that we don’t and will not get any help in acquiring new technologies. to produce, you need to have demand and markets for your products. How much did the country simply faint after the collapse of the USSR? And the world did not stand still, developed .... So do not look so gloomy at all. Even if it seems that everything is not as fast as we all would like.

      "В России всё хорошо, только власть и политику нужно поменять. И тогда рыночные механизмы приведут нас к процветанию. Прежде всего как он говорит" - рыночные механизмы, как и открытые границы - губительны для нашей экономики! Наибольшего расцвета наша экономика достигла при плановом государственном управлении и неконвертируемом рубле, что исключает возможность оттока капитала зарубеж (тут конечно немаловажно еще и то кто находится во главе станы).
      "То есть в тех секторах которые не связаны с развитием собственного производства " - а вот тут в самую точку! Нас хвалят за уничтожение Русской науки, производства и тяжелой промышленности!

      because even having 1 million rubles, you can put it in the bank at 1-2% and go to withdraw once a month 10-20 thousand rubles and not work in principle. And if you put 10 million, even at least taking into account the monthly withdrawal of interest? why work? Many people make surplus money from someone, they just don’t say it openly and don’t advertise on the Internet, they’re embarrassed wassat

    Instead of the idea voiced by DAM about offshore in the Far East, it might be worthwhile to agree on the export of capital, which is still hidden in the shadows, to the companies of the BRICS countries - South Africa, Brazil, then they will partly work for the owners and for the overall (in the long term) BRICS economy , and legally, in the form of taxes - on the economy (budget) of Russia, in any case, it will be under control.

Why do you need to repeat what our potential friends hamper us - everything is bad with us, the further, the worse, we need to reform further, use our resources together with the world community, which we are not able to properly manage, we need to destroy the power vertical. to decentralize the governance of Russia?

    Это в принципе неплохо, т.к. прежде всего перед ростом реального сектора экономики необходим "банковский задел" для того, чтобы те же производственники могли брать короткие и длинные кредиты на развитие. Вопрос в другом, в том чтобы контролировать деятельность накопителей финансовых средств и как бы направлять их в нужном направлении.

    Again Americans praises us, so we are not doing very well. Yesterday I heard the opinion of Khinshtein and Pochinok in a duel, I came to the conclusion that it was with EBNe and now, in principle, the system has not changed. Everything is built on personal interest, that is, on theft. The market economy in Russia is the economy of the robbery of one’s own people, although sprouts of state regulation are visible. Power is completely dependent on the oligarchs and foreign capital, so it physically cannot act like the Chinese and has no decisiveness. If we don’t sit on an oil and gas needle, then on which, not really narcotic? We don’t need to hang noodles for us, but as we got this Gilman, probably his friend Chubais drinks coffee with him.

      You say that a worker in Russia works less than, for example, in Sweden? I strongly disagree with you. The worker works much more. However, he feeds a bunch of managers, and mechanization with automation wants to be the best.
      But the problem in my opinion is not at all that. Fundamental state policy on the collapse of school education brings the expected success. There is no one to teach our children.
      Children unlearned at school go to universities, where they can no longer teach them anything for money or without money.
      Soon we will also dig wells for oil with a shovel.

    We should not forget that comrade Gilman-Gelman settled down near a good feeding trough in the capital of the Russian Federation, and he would have said otherwise, he would not have been kept here.

    That's when a worker in Russia will produce products in an hour for the same amount as a worker in developed countries


    В "развитых странах", рабочих "выпускающих продукцию" становится меньше с каждым годом. Проповедуется идея т.н. "постиндустриального общества" и промышленное производство выводится за их пределы.
    For example, in 2011. US manufacturing accounted for only 12.2% of total GDP. , while for all sorts of services 79.6%.
    Кстати, поскольку в так называемый "сектор услуг" входит и телефонная связь, то очень простым способом улучшения показателей экономического роста мог бы стать призыв властей к гражданам РФ брехать по своим мобильникам не менее 2 часов в сутки. Можно и больше. Дарю эту идею т. Гилману.Пусть насоветует кому следует, чтобы подальше от нефтяной иглы отодвинуться. ..

    so answer to specific question, which you yourself have been celebrating! or I’ll ask a friend a question - why do these countries sell their resources? wassat

    Apparently because they have them. And they don’t need anything else. Have you ever
    слышали про"катарских ученых" или про спутник который собрали в Саудовской
    Arabia ??? And do not hear, because it is not necessary if there is oil, everything can be bought.
    At the same time, the people live in the Middle Ages. Do you want such a path for Russia ??

    Мнение отдельно взятого человечка -это одно. А объективная ситуация совсем другое. Уже сейчас в новостях об экономических "успехах" нашего правительства можно узнать об 300-ах миллиардах дефицита в бюджете,а ведь не выполнена и половина всех предвыборных обещаний путина,который ,кстати,в своих выступлениях уже сам говорит о нефте-газовых сверхдоходах,как о временном явлении,которое може и прекратиться. Вообще,я думаю,что падение цен на нефть для России благо ибо от ее тела сразу же отсосутся все друзья-товарищи Путина,а может и он сам уйдет на покой.

    Russia sits tightly on the oil needle and this is a fact. But the matter is different. To whom it is profitable. And it is beneficial to these gentlemen with the US Federal Reserve controlled by the Zionist lobby. Rothschilds.

    National Business, USA, 1953

    “... if the growth rate of production in Stalinist Russia continues, then by 1970 the volume of Russian production would be 3-4 times higher than the American one. And if this happens, the consequences for Western countries, especially for the United States, will be more than formidable. ”
    Stevenson, US Presidential Candidate

    If Stalin survived to this day and continued to lead the state, then we would now be the richest country in the world. Moreover, the United States and Europe would not even be near.
    That is why many politicians in the West do not like Stalin so much and are so afraid of His return

    At the end of the existence of the USSR, not everyone understood how the planning system created by Stalin functions. They are now trying to present her as an administrative monster, in which everything and everyone was planned. However, this is not so much.
    “In the Soviet planning system, rigid planning essentially never existed, although much has been written about it. In the capitalist system, they constantly talk about the market element, but in business practices they follow accurate planning, and in everything, including prices, salaries, consumption of materials, promotion of goods on the market, etc. ” [2]

    How amazing, right? And what did they say to us in “perestroika”? What is our system - a monster, unable to rebuild due to its rigidity? Anyone who has ever worked in foreign corporations knows how much more rigid they are than the Soviet system in administrative terms, the screw man there has practically no freedom and initiative. Not to mention their inhumanity, omnipotence of corporate bureaucracy, groveling before the authorities, which is unthinkable in the USSR. But this is not the point - planning in the USSR, of course, was, but it was incomparably more flexible and effective than in the West. So it’s not a matter of stupidly following the instructions of the authorities at any cost, but in something else. Judging by the results of Industrialization, the Soviet Economic Miracle, planning was put in place during Stalin's time better than anyone else in the world, both before and after.

    The meaning of Stalinist planning was to combine long-term plans from several decades to the Future Plans (10-15 years) and plans for the near future - the so-called. "Five-year plans." On the basis of such general directions, long-term Programs (Projects) were built, for example, the Space Program or the Atomic Program (Project), which were gigantic projects designed for decades. Such long-term programs provided additional strength and flexibility to the entire system, as if “stitching” five-year plans.

    And why did he decide so? We do not just sit on an oil needle, we just can’t live without we cannot !!!
    Moscow. January 14, 2012 OilCapital.ru. Oil and gas revenues of the federal budget of Russia in 2011 amounted to 5,6 trillion rubles. As the press service of the Russian government reports, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said this during a meeting of the Presidium of the highest executive authority. This represents about half of all budget revenues.
