Military Review

Where did the Russian economy go?

Where did the Russian economy go?Less than a year has passed since Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization, and we have to keep the defense.


At a recent meeting with entrepreneurs in Voronezh, Russian President Vladimir Putin made it clear that Russia will respond adequately to the actions of WTO partners, introducing similar rules to protect its market.

Probably, this is typical for any adaptation periods. But a slight bewilderment remains. After all, we wanted to be part of this global structure for almost 18 seasons - by analogy with the "soap opera". And during this sometimes dramatic, sometimes comedic WTO-series, it was quite possible to develop a strategy of behavior and tactics of trade interaction. Nearly two decades is more than enough to understand the rules of the game and the pitfalls of the organization, thoroughly examine all the tricks of the competitors, and also make a file on the most sophisticated ones. But, apparently, they speak their teeth well. What we were just not promised was “after the WTO”: easier access of our goods and protection in foreign markets, cheapening of import equipment and raw materials for manufacturers, savings for the Russian consumer’s wallet, the ability to influence the formation of international economic rules, and generally no discrimination, friendliness even help in the fight against corruption.

But all these good transformations require months and years, and the negative came almost immediately. The first to cry were agrarians and livestock breeders, in whom the long-standing alarm was replaced by real problems after the reduction of import duties on imports. Russian agricultural producers were suffocating because of high rates on loans and tariffs, and then they began to balance on the verge of loss. Yes, and other industries are faced with increased competition, which threatens the bankruptcy of enterprises and rising unemployment, especially in single-industry towns. Against this background, the opposition parties, with pain in their hearts and indignation in their voices, ran to seek the truth in the Constitutional Court.

Why bother with the WTO at all? We would continue to trade on a bilateral basis with a traditional set of goods, especially since the volumes were constantly increasing (adjusted for the crisis). Even our capitals and new products periodically penetrated foreign markets. Of course, thanks to the WTO in this regard should be easier. But so far something is not heard of the victorious "hurray" of the Russian expansion. As for foreigners, their goods and services have long been registered in our market, the offices of their concerns have settled in the best offices, and some products are even made in Russia.

On the other hand, this complacency is often costly to the economy. After all, the WTO, especially for our country, acts as a kind of "fear factor", which, although it causes stress, but at the same time it mobilizes strongly. And if you always stay in a relaxed state, sit in the "greenhouse conditions", and progress will miss. Of course, you can purely Russian 33 year roll on the stove, and then, when completely squeezed, to rise to fight adversity. But this is a luxury for an almost depressed economy. Yes, and how else to stir up our manufacturers, so that they produce the best quality products?

Therefore, the WTO for Russia is not only a significant event in economic life, but also a serious challenge. This is an excellent test of endurance in the economy: will we be able to overcome this ordeal, will we be able to take advantage of obvious advantages, become more competitive, increase labor productivity.

How would anyone not want, but times have changed, and our country has long and no one owes nothing (except perhaps debt). No one guarantees the first places - neither in world politics, nor in sports, nor in the economy. And it makes no sense to remember with a sigh of sadness about Soviet greatness. We must not be nostalgic, do not smear snot-tears according to the proceeds, but make our way forward and revive the former power. Here Sweden, for example, after the defeat of Charles XII’s troops, didn’t particularly kick in the external arena and focused on internal development. But we do not want that, we cannot sacrifice leadership ambitions. So, it is necessary to gather the will into a fist, roll up our sleeves and, overcoming the deprivations, confirm our sovereignty. And in this sense, participation in the WTO may be useful.

But the authorities needed to better lubricate the “skis” and check the “rifle” more carefully before entering the global trade route. After all, they perfectly understood in which sectors competitors would “shoot”. And adaptation would be more easily tolerated if the government had bothered to modernize the economy and strengthen the most vulnerable sectors. But here, as always, trouble has come, open the gate. They hoped, apparently, that they would flood money with sorrow, and everything would normalize itself. As a result, it was not possible to meet the WTO fully armed. Plans and programs aimed at supporting the real sector in an "open market" are still being developed. But competitors will not forgive blunders.

However, there is nowhere to retreat, and we must play by the new rules. Now you can remember those who crossed swords in verbal battles around the WTO with a sad smile or an approving nod. Officials, deputies, bloggers, journalists, the expert community, businessmen - all foamingly argued that they were right and mocked their opponents' arguments. But already a year soon, as we entered the organization. On the one hand, the disaster did not break out, and the market was not choked in the flow of imports. On the other hand, the WTO manna also did not fall on our impatient heads.

So far, everyone is in a normal mode: the authorities continue to assert that they are monitoring the situation, and they (who would doubt it) have everything under control. In the meantime, those sectors that have suffered the brunt of foreign trade liberalization count losses. They are echoed by opponents of Russia's accession to the WTO with the phrase: “We warned you”.

Some experts even believe that the WTO is a scam into which Russia has been treacherously pulled in, tying hand and foot. And there are grounds for such paranoia. But, most likely, the WTO is just a “untimely blessing”, the joy from which we would experience it easier if we were better prepared. Even the Accounts Chamber points out problems with the legislative and staffing of our participation in a trade organization.

The authorities are asking to be patient, assuring that the flaws will be eliminated, the losses from the WTO are minimized, and in the long run we will certainly win. In addition, they promise not to abandon problematic industries to their fate and support them through subsidies and government procurement. However, reports from the "fields" come depressing, and on the horizon loom litigation with foreign partners (for the supply of meat, recycling car, wood). The Russian economy seemed to be in the millstones of "economic Darwinism" when the strongest and best survive.

It turns out that our entry into the WTO is now beneficial only to foreigners. They achieved what they demanded - remove the protective barriers and "open the gateways". And while we are somehow weak, they will skim the cream. After all, as my Odessa uncle likes to repeat: "Oh, I beg of you, which organization Russia would not join, it gets into trouble everywhere, and it will be used everywhere."

      Recently, the news went through a story about how Vladimir Putin defended the interests of Gas Prom from attempts by the West to impose new rules for the sale of hydrocarbons. And a good move was made, they urgently organized a summit of gas producing and selling countries, and all countries clearly stated that there would be no freebies.

    The WTO has helped a lot, for example, in our region to destroy many peasant farms. Yes, and private entrepreneurs too. According to the regional statistics office, more than 4000 entrepreneurs have stopped working. Taxes, loans, etc. and ... death.
    The long-term perspective is of course interesting to me, only the organism has been accustomed to eat daily since the Soviet times. Instead of helping the government, the government is building more and more hassles.

        Credits ... Well, maybe they are good for someone. And taxes? Where did they see a small business in the regions that can really pay such taxes? Half of my acquaintances dismiss and accept workers every month. Otherwise, the costs are full. The employee does not earn as much how much you need to pay for it. The return went to the gray scheme.
        I talked with farmers about agricultural products, in general, at the seams. Our cost is more than the purchase of shops. Why work? The village is switching to subsistence farming.

          About taxes: we have the only country in the world, probably, where profits are taxed up to 2 times, in some cases up to 3 and sometimes up to 5 ...
          up to 2x stable - this, of course, is the tax on profit itself, then VAT, 3 - excise taxes, I don’t remember the rest ... quite a while ago we talked with one tax teacher from a technical school. I note in advance - the preparation of this person is an order of magnitude higher than that taught in all kinds of HSE and other Moscow and St. Petersburg craps.

          She said wonderful words: What a fool you need to tax the same income several times. This is real wrecking against your economy. In the end, the final consumers pay, and the producers put all these costs into the cost.

But there are no price reductions, they have grown and are still growing. And I think that the WTO supporters made the main emphasis. Until then, I don’t understand why it was necessary to join.

We ourselves need to regulate the economy, and not with the help of foreign relations and declarations, which themselves have gone to their ears in various crises .... and now they are beginning to shift them onto our shoulders. Complete disgrace and bacchanalia. Interestingly, our leadership will have the political will to admit this mistake and leave the organization hostile to us.

    "It turns out that our entry into the WTO now profitable only to foreigners. They achieved what they demanded - remove the protective barriers and "open the gateways."
    Woke up. And not "now," but "constantly."
    And the authorities, everything is “monitored”. Or - they’re messing around? ..
    In short, about the WTO, everything has already been written - G. it is G. The picture for the article is good - they are different fish.
    I was against the WTO, and to whom this opinion surrendered, however ...

    The only question is for those who are in favor. A year has passed, highlight the positive points, if you can. But! SPECIFICALLY! Or again, wait - we'll see. yes

    I see foreigners began to live well after Russia joined the WTO, especially the Portuguese, who started to plant potatoes in Lisbon, or the Spaniards - who already count 25% of the population as bandits, the Greeks probably began to live well - after all, their houses on the coast fell by a factor of 5 (but still no one is buying), of course, Russia has not benefited from this, because new foreign equipment for lowered duties at the newly built factories is a huge minus, it's new jobs !!!
    Yes, no one argues, there are also negative sides, but their country is quite successfully resolving. And I believe in my state. Probably Andrei Sivridi does not like the fact that the shelves in stores are bursting with an excess of food, or that the shortage of meat in the country has been resolved.

      that the country's meat shortage was resolved.

      Was there a shortage of meat before joining the WTO? Surround respected. There was another problem. The peasant had nowhere to attach his meat products at a more or less reasonable price. Private owners abandoned farming, it is simply unprofitable. 15 years ago, we drove 200 goals from the street to the pasture, now -4. WTO and these will finish.

    It is not necessary to nostalgia, not to smear snot-tears in terms of revenue, but to push forward and revive the former power.

    With the current government, one can only dream about it. Suppose we are all imbued with a sense of patriotism and dedication. We will tear everything to work for 12 hours without days off, we will tighten belts more tightly. And everything will result in the fact that the next thieves will fill their pockets. Not. I agree to tighten my belt and work for 12 hours, but where is the guarantee that everything that I produce will go to revive the power of the state, and not to enrich a handful of scoundrels in power? They are now openly and shamelessly crawling into our pockets, increasing tariffs, prices, fines and taxes, without any justification.

    I read and cry from some lines
    No matter how anyone would like to, but times have changed, and for a long time no one owes anything to our country (except perhaps debts). No one guarantees the first places - neither in world politics, nor in sports, nor in the economy.
    I wanted to ask the author, but what about the fact of debts or as a result of their return, we were at a high level in politics, sports and economics? As far as only Russia-USSR-Russia is known, everyone should ... even those who continue to live. Her whole story is a struggle for life.
    It also expresses bewilderment, the desire of the author (for all the negative moments of entry into the WTO) to create the impression of the process being irreversible
    However, there is nowhere to retreat, and we must play by the new rules.
    And also forget those who are the introduction and signed
    Now one can recall with a sad smirk or an approving nod those who crossed swords in the verbal battles around the WTO. Officials, deputies, bloggers, journalists, the expert community, entrepreneurs - all with foam at the mouth proved their innocence and mocked the arguments of opponents.

    Here we always have (now) ... big losses ... losses, but there is no one to answer ... and it’s not necessary
    it makes no sense to recall with sigh of sadness about Soviet greatness. Do not nostalgic, do not smear snot-tears
    the author claims ... in a word, his WTO is bad ... but everything is fine ...

    US satellite countries (read: litter), membership in the WTO is unambiguously profitable, they have full and without WTO membership, and so, at least in some respects there is equality. Why Russia needed to be raped is completely incomprehensible. Of course, there is a group of oligarchs to whom the WTO provides additional preferences, but they have long been integrated into the global financial mix, so even this positive moment is not beneficial to Russia, but to its enemies. The destruction of agriculture is guaranteed to us. In power, it seems, losers in economic geography have gathered. Russia is a northern country, food production here is highly risky and costly. If we continue to pretend that our agricultural producers can compete with Australian, Argentinean, Canadian, Dutch peasants, given that 1 kg of meat does not have a cost at all, almost ZERO due to year-round summer, and we have a pasture period of 5 months for which it is still necessary to have time to prepare feed for 7 months — we will go so far. And the gentlemen seem to know the story poorly: when people have nothing to feed, they begin to rebel, and to organize hunger with complete dependence on "kind uncles" is a couple of trifles, remember the French revolution, Indian uprisings, I don’t like this future.

    Why take the risk with the WTO?


    one might think that the decision-makers did not know where they entered, there are many examples of the same Ukraine: with the introduction of quotas for the cultivation of beetweed, the reduction of the area of ​​fields, the closure of processing plants and, among other things, the processing of raw sugarcane, and the recent scandal in Ukraine with Ukraine increasing duties on 371 product type

    This Napoleon liked to declare that you first need to get involved in a fight, and then according to the situation. But he acted on the contrary, at first he thought about the situation.

    Here is another argument: our customs union allies can import goods at lower rates through Russia, while not observing the WTO rules themselves, is an attractive argument for joining the Customs Union ?. You just have to wait, and yell and yell.

    “Less than a year has passed since Russia joined the World Trade Organization, and we are already forced to maintain defense” - For this we need the WTO, without kick in the ass, without such competition, it will not wake up development. For some reason, China has joined this organization and is not complaining. The problem is invented, and the opposition speculates on this invention. If it was beneficial for someone to flood our economy through the WTO, Russia would not be accepted in 20 years, but in a month.
