Goodbye, rich Russia

Goodbye, rich Russia



The era of expensive raw materials, which began to rise in world oil prices in May 1999, ends before our eyes. Despite the unprecedented pumping of speculative (both financial and commodity) markets with cheap money, raw materials in general have ceased to become more expensive, and in many areas have begun to steadily fall in price.

The biggest impression was made by the “bell” in the coal market, the price of which decreased more than twice from the maximum level reached in the second quarter of 2011. The reasons are transparent: in addition to general overproduction, this sharp reduction in imports by India and the “shale revolution” to the United States (because of which American coal, which has fallen in price, “went through the world” and is now exported even to Europe).

Oil and gas are still being held, but in general they have only about three years left - until the gas carriers already built in South Korea for exporting American liquefied gas are completed. The fact that after this the “national wealth” of Russia will turn into a chicken (albeit a very large one) with a severed head is the concern of those to whom this “wealth” actually serves, however, a one-third reduction in the price of gas exports to Europe is inevitable.

With oil, the same is easier. It is clear that the cheapening of coal and gas will “pull” it after itself, and reducing its world price even to 60 dollars per barrel in its consequences for the current model of the Russian economy will be comparable to a shot from a grenade launcher at the temple.

But business is far not limited to energy carriers.

Since the spring of 2011, the world prices for steel semi-finished products and flat-rolled products have dropped by about a quarter, for long products - by one-sixth. Over the same period, nickel fell by more than twice, tin and aluminum - by about a third (the latter’s reserves in the world significantly exceed annual consumption, and there are no prospects for their reduction), copper - by about 30%, lead and zinc - by more than fourth.

Frighteningly - also by more than a quarter relative to the maximum level - even gold is getting cheaper, which, of course, is not primarily a “raw material for the electrical industry”, but a means of accumulating treasure and sacred metal of the entire market economy.

The scandal with the “quarrel between business entities” around Uralkali drew attention to a relatively small, but very significant, potash market. Only investment projects already being implemented in this area provide an increase in potassium production by about a third over the next three years - without any signs of increased demand. At the same time, a significant part of the projects being implemented has already passed the “point of no return”: it will be much more expensive to stop them halfway than to continue even at a loss. It is clear that this doomed the potash market to a collapse in prices, which was only brought closer by the arrest of Baumgertner and the very convincing Interpol support for the prosecution of the Uralkali leadership by Belarus.

All of the above does not seem to be an accident, not a one-time oscillation, but a new stage in the development of the world, at least a new business cycle of this development. The immediate cause of the cheapening of raw materials — the inhibition of China — lies on the surface, but even this is caused not so much by the internal difficulties of the Celestial Empire, as by limiting the growth in external demand due to the global economy slipping to a global depression.

It is clear that the inevitable (at least, as far as this can be judged today), the breakdown in the global depression will further increase the overproduction of the main types of raw materials and, accordingly, will increase the downward trend in its prices.

The cheapening of raw materials, which has been going on for two years now, gives both global and national business a clear signal that is subject to fast and unquestioning execution: they are no longer investing money in the relevant industries. (Bright examples are Qatar’s moratorium on the development of new gas fields on the shelf and the actual refusal of Russia to develop the Shtokman field.) Worldwide, the center of gravity of investments is confidently shifted from the development of raw materials and the acquisition of processing facilities to new technologies. Exceptions such as the US shale gas and oil market only confirm the rule - and the most advanced part of the world, despite the inertia of global monopolies, is probably waiting for a new technological breakthrough, a new stage of transformation by everyday life technologies.

The investments made in these technologies will have to be recouped, and, despite their growing productivity, high-tech products will begin to rise in price relative to raw materials. The tendency of its relative cheapening, which has manifested itself in recent decades, will reverse, and intellectual rent will take the part of humanity that does not possess it by the throat.

Yes, over time, the malicious and widespread abuse of the monopoly position under the guise of the realization of intellectual property rights will lead to the spread of cheap, widely available and, at the same time, superproductive technologies, blocked today by global monopolies and national bureaucracies.

Yes, after one or two decades, when the world will feel the consequences of the overflow of investments in technology to the detriment of the development of raw materials, the latter’s deficit will change the situation: prices will go up, investments will follow after them - and after the implementation of the relevant projects the cycle will repeat again.

But all this still needs to live.

And in the coming years, most likely, we are waiting for the era of cheaper raw materials, in which Russia will face a sharp decline in revenues from virtually all of its exports, including products of the first redistribution and rapidly aging weapon (with a clear loss of the ability to produce a significant part of it). But our country is bending today - “only” under the weight of its own problems in the form of total arbitrariness of corrupt officials and monopolists: economic growth is slowed down and will soon turn into a recession, a huge increase in investments last year was replaced by their growing reduction.

Domestic experts, who in these conditions continue to call for the development of a strategy for investing petrodollars in the development and implementation of modern technologies, are simply late: while this strategy is developed (and the experience of Medvedev's “modernization” shows that this may not happen at all), the petrodollars will run out .

And the new generation of Gaidar, Chubais and Kiriyenok, warmed up on export streams, will turn our pockets out without a shadow of hesitation and remorse and conscientiously declare: “The money has run out!”.

Strictly speaking, this process has already begun, and long before the reserves are exhausted. What are the heart-rending cries about the lack of money in the budget, the unused balances of which (over 7,2 trillion rubles) exceed semiannual expenses (that is, you can not collect taxes and customs fees for more than six months, and no one except the treasury will notice this). The cuts in social spending and development programs (but by no means giving the impression of openly thieving “image projects”!) Under these conditions are meant only to cover up the quite possible final operation to “withdraw” a significant part of its own reserves from the country.

The trouble is not that the impending cataclysm will almost inevitably lead to the end of the ruling and owning Russia party, robbing the Soviet legacy and processing the people of our country into personal wealth. These people have long been sorry for no one - even, judging by their behavior, by themselves.

The trouble is that the upcoming cataclysm will be quite long and may lead to the end of Russia itself, because our unpreparedness for such a development is obvious.

Our technologies, created at best in the 80s, will be just as hopeless and helpless in the near high-tech future, like the current Strategic Missile Forces - in a situation of large-scale use of precision weapons in combination with four-level American missile defense.

        Crazy article! Shale gas is not a revolution in the gas industry. How will it be mined in densely populated Europe ??? Rave! Well, the Americans shake it in the desert. American missile defense? Yes, and what is this missile defense? Two regiments of Iskander in Kaliningrad with supersonic missiles - 3 minutes and there will be no piece of iron on this missile defense system. We will soon see how the American economy will also collapse and drag the whole world behind it, and the impoverished resource Europe will never rise without Russia's big hairy arm. The world is waiting for change. And the country that has a strong people and a strong nature will win ...

          I agree with you!
          Raw material prices will remain at an acceptable level, 10 for at least another year, with possible short-lived price drops, in this regard, everything is logical and predictable.
          Further, Russia not only earns from oil, the sale of weapons, electricity, construction in foreign countries.
          And there are no programs to reduce the share of resources in the budget: modernization of industry, investment in the countryside, manipulation of the Central Bank, the main problem - almost half of the population receives a black salary, these are trillions and trillions of rubles, this is comparable to the income from the sale of oil, and the damage is colossal! These people do not receive retirement payments, how many municipalities do not receive to upgrade infrastructure and build a new one, do these people have a social package, which is equal = doctors receive less.
          In the future, the customs union.

          A bad article is a little less than complete. The author is either incompetent or writes to order, and one does not exclude the other.

          It is significant that they want to revive Soviet logic in relation to parasites, there was an article in the USSR, but now they think, I emphasize !!! THINK that unemployed will not be able to use honey. By services, relevant exceptions, the idea is at an early stage in the development of nuances. So they want to bring taxpayers out of the shadows

          And shale gas does not change the picture.

        I would not be so optimistic! Russia is kept on oil and gas money, prices will collapse and Russia will collapse, sadly for me, a resident of Russia. Investors' money goes mainly to the gas and oil sector of the industry (quick payback), and investors do not go to the real sector of industry - mechanical engineering because of the "long ruble" (the payback period of some projects in mechanical engineering is several decades), they do not want to transfer technologies, instead, they arrange assembly plants without the transfer of technology (screwdriver assembly), our science is destroyed (the fundamental science is still glowing, and the real contribution of science to production is minimal), and in addition, after the adoption of the law on reforming the Russian Academy of Sciences, closings will follow, as is considered unprofitable research institutes as a consequence of the loss of scientific developments in these research institutes. And the machine-building industry itself is going through hard times - the technologies are old, the equipment is Soviet, which has exhausted all the resources, the owner is not particularly interested in investing money in reconstruction - just to snatch money, and hence not the competitive equipment, which is not bought, is limited to spare parts for the old one. I speak with confidence because I work at a machine-building plant. Metallurgy is still twitching, but also on the verge. Enterprises are not being reconstructed. I was on a business trip in China, where our equipment was supplied, and so there are technologies, new equipment. Therefore, they are in the lead!

        The naive author of the article, still thinks that shale gas will raise America, he’ll ditch it on the contrary! And Korea is building gas carriers for itself so that for example there will be no gas from the United States to transport liquefied gas from Russia and from Qatar, it is now for them it’s understandable! But our people are smart, they just won’t be able to hang noodles on their ears !!!

      Naivety bordering on idiocy!
      Production growth is impossible without an increase in energy consumption!
      In any case, an increase in production will require at least the creation of jobs, that is, an increase in the standard of living of people who want to eat better, relax more, have better homes, and all this again requires energy!
      Nowadays, only a decline in production can reduce the cost of energy or a global discovery, such as the production of energy from water with an efficiency of 100%!
      This article discusses a utopian tale!
      However, the basic idea is true - in order to become a great country, Russia does not need to depend on fluctuations in energy prices to get off oil and gas pipes, roll up its sleeves and develop its production!

        From Belarus. I would not call an idiot a competent specialist. Often comes to Minsk. It is said that Lukashenko listens to his advice. Performs on BT. Literate guy. Instead of insults, just read the literature on this subject. Do not be lazy. The USSR collapsed, in part, due to a 5-fold decrease in oil prices in 1986. A decrease in energy consumption per unit of output is unknown, probably only in Papuan. Look around - from light bulbs to nuclear plants, saving, saving. And Belarus is building a nuclear power plant in order not to spend currency on Russian gas. For domestic use only. Unfortunately, innovative projects in Russia are rare. One Skolkovo - anti-advertising of the highest standard. But to do something really is necessary. And already, the day before yesterday. The train is rapidly leaving.

            so as ALL Ukrainian presidents were corrupt fools and parodies remained! is that better chtol?
            so as Putin was a cunning fox and remained!
            BUT this still has nothing to talk about, just everyone takes their place and is very successful in their own way (I’m certainly not talking about the power of Ukraine))
            and what do you want Lukashenko to do, who from the Soviet Union couldn’t get oil or gas, or just any feeding trough? so that his talent as a collective farmer came in handy for a rather poor Belarus and allowed him to at least not give a chance to the orange infection to let the country sink to the bottom of European integration hi

        Allow me to disagree with you. If some country with the efficiency of its economy as a steam engine can switch to the efficiency of internal combustion engines. That is, without increasing energy consumption, it can raise production many times over. Compare, for example, the fuel consumption of a car of the 80s and modern ones - the same with the economy. There is no alternative to the development of energy-saving technologies.

            The current corruption is a couple of orders of magnitude less than in the nineties, when the whole country and ALL of its resources were stolen and now has completely dropped to the European and American levels. Of course, this does not mean that the situation with it is tolerable, but there is positive dynamics in this area (although not as fast as we would like) and you can’t notice it only intentionally.

                The armament has not changed much, unfortunately, it has only become more broken-down ... in the nineties, the integration of manufacturing enterprises was disrupted, the allocation of money for R&D was stopped, almost everything related to the rearmament and development of new types of weapons and military equipment was closed, the scientific base was destroyed, personnel were lost , continuity and the system of their training ... damn, even welders are not enough to carry out welding hull operations on ships under construction ... if we are on a military site, think about the development and deployment cycle of modern weapons and military equipment, and even the most difficult conditions that cannot be improved instantly ... and don’t pretend you don’t understand what I’m talking about.

      The author is naive, she and the elite live beautifully in Africa, and for the rest there are Internal Troops with criminal responsibility for not following the order :-) Well, Petrosyans on TV :-) and whoever knows and wants will not be lost

      The author of the idle talk and alarmist. Honestly, I could not read it to the end, but vyser is understandable.
      There is no reduction in commodity prices, there is a rebound from its maximum values. A rebound caused by the collapse of the economic model of the Western world. That is why Russia is reorienting from West to East, and not only China. Moreover, Russia is increasing industrial production and rearmament. The process began back in 2006 and the first results are visible today. Import substitution is everywhere, and with the creation of the Customs Union, a significant share of imports from non-CIS countries will be transferred to our neighbors.
      The author is stupid in his estimates, if only because he does not take into account that Russia still has a significant surplus in foreign trade, which exceeds $ 212 billion. And this is with a total turnover of 830 billion, that is, more than 25%.

      As for oil and gas, the author does not understand the structure of its consumption. Russia, unlike China, has huge domestic imports and the bulk of gas, over 70% is consumed domestically. But imports are mainly luxury goods. More than 52% of imports are cars and household appliances. When the structure of consumption changes in the face of a decrease in the purchasing power of the population, it is these sectors of the Russian economy that will get a chance for development and import substitution, as has already happened with the sectors of the agro-industrial complex and agriculture.

    coal and gas will “pull” it along, and a decrease in its world price even to 60 dollars per barrel
    1) the price of gas through the formula is recalculated from the price of oil. THOSE. the price of oil forms the price of gas.
    2) Europe will not heat itself with coal. emissions from such heating can put an end to the Kyoto agreement.
    3) Korea builds gas carriers to export LNG from the United States. And the Qatari gas carriers, which are now carrying gas to the United States, will stand idle?

      They are not without work. They are now transporting gas to Europe. The United States stopped buying Qatari gas. The price of gas in the United States has now fallen from 560 dl. up to 180. So much for shale gas. And in Europe there are two countries with very large reserves of shale gas. One of them now wants to join the EU.

    Russia so far is not so dependent on the world to die from the absence of anything. We will survive even with the complete collapse of everyone around. How? This is another question, but we will survive for sure.

    I have, as usual, an indiscreet question. And if horror stories come true, but the country will surely stand and others will come to power? Others will water the Soviet Union according to the Soviet Union, or, like GDP about the EBN, say softly that it has failed everything, but did it more or less conduct foreign policy? And you, the citizens, voted for him themselves and are also to blame for the fact that he kept the money from the enemies, which the money hung. And what do you want for a lawyer by training and without experience as a leader, even though a brigade or a platoon.
    And it is interesting to me, when will they begin to come to power that the country needs. Identify such yes easily! I assure you that the testing methods determine whether a person is lying or not. What kind of work he is capable of. I remember, in 90-x conducted a social investigation, so about one of the poor managers at the company was given that he was not in ....., not in the Red Army. We were surprised that everything is correct. But bureaucrats will not allow such testing.

    Yes, over time, the malicious and widespread abuse of the monopoly position under the guise of the realization of intellectual property rights will lead to the spread of cheap, widely available and, at the same time, superproductive technologies, blocked today by global monopolies and national bureaucracies.



    The author has at least one positive thought - the rest is gloomy.
    And in my opinion, the faster our government begins to help develop new technologies and not distribute the income from raw materials, the more effective Russia will develop.
    After all, now, in fact, we are only eating away what belongs to our grandchildren.
    At the beginning of the 20th century, Russia had no oil revenues, and in science, discoveries were and developed until the people revolted with expectations of revolution.

    Yes. Obviously, the author did not fit into his topic. I will not say that this is a pure rush, but for example he says that they don’t invest money in the exploration of new deposits because the desired product is getting cheaper. No-no. Raw materials are a strategic thing. It will always be in demand. I didn’t think why Qatar was not looking, but Russia wasn’t looking for the fact that there wasn’t any money. Not enough for anything (neither for the army, nor for social programs)
    . That's why I always said that the Olympics in Sochi is a huge mistake and cut. And we will lose a lot of money on it. Although everything has more than one side. Maybe this will give some kind of outwardly political preferences ...
    And Qatar may not conduct field exploration, even with some secret agreement with the United States, in order to maintain the image of the inevitability of the era of shale gas.

The Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Agriculture is not an example for you? How many modern warships so necessary for us right now in the Mediterranean could be built with stolen money ?! And who is firsthand acquainted with the internal affairs of the housing and communal services?

    I believe that a pessimistic look and reassurance is better than a sudden and shocking "moment of truth". After all, high-tech spheres and production must be developed! Therefore, I refrained from setting a minus to the material. Even if a negative outlook is better, it makes you mobilize and not be relaxed and stagnant. Personally, the material made just such an impression on me and made me think about finding, at least for myself, guidelines for a possible worsening of the economic situation in the country. Better a bitter truth, or even a half-truth, than a sweet lie.

      And in Russia, as in Ukraine, the high-tech sector of the economy has been dying like dinosaurs for some time already ... And none of the people influential in the 20 years after the collapse of the Union did not really move their fingers to create their high-tech products ... The same Although the USSR lagged behind the West in the production of certain goods - for example, automobiles and electronics somehow accustomed its citizens to use their own ... And now everyone got used to the latest brands of Laptops and Cars from world brands, and they lost their own for scrap ...

    I strongly doubt that the volume of shale gas production will be able to fully cover the needs of the market, another thing is that gas most likely expects a significant reduction in price, but this does not mean a complete rejection of Russian suppliers. And even in this case, gas will be worth much more than its cost, and this means one thing: gas monopolists will still profit, albeit in smaller quantities. Which, however, does not mean at all that the money will be in the budget, which is formed for a miserable 13% of the income of resource-extracting companies, and therefore we should expect a radical curtailment of all social programs and a sharp increase in energy prices in the domestic market (it would be easier to tear off people, not to offend your loved ones).

    It is too late to invest the available funds in production, in this I completely agree with the author. They should have been invested in 2004, at least in 2008, when there was a real reason to use the funds of the stabilization fund. But we all remember that the state then decided to support banks, not enterprises. Later accession to the WTO finally put an end to Russia's ability to be not a raw material appendage, but an industrial country, with all that it implies. Moreover, the role of this "appendage" does not imply the presence of any political ambitions behind the country (primarily in the international arena), which we still have and which, in fact, were ensured by the high price of energy resources.

    This raises the question of those in power and the reasons that prompted them to adopt unprofitable (when I say "unprofitable" I will proceed from the principle: what is good for Russia is good for me and vice versa) of economic decisions that directly undermine the sovereignty of the state and themselves as powerful actors (from Latin actor - to act, in this case, the one who acts, makes a decision) within a given state, not to mention social collapse.
    But if the political elite proceeds from a different principle than I voiced, and their interests are not identical with the interests of the state and the population ..... then how to explain the principle of all the same political elite in foreign policy? Playing with the electorate? Of course, there is another option: scary, I would even say criminal negligence and incompetence of those who make decisions on which the life of the country depends. Which, against the background of the appointment of Golikova as head of the Accounts Chamber, agree that it does not look futuristic.

    This is a situevina, in fact, we were indicated our place in the system of the emerging world order. We smile and wave, comrades!

    Many people understand that sitting on an oil needle will not work, but those who make a huge fortune on this, under no circumstances will support the development of alternative energy resources, on the contrary, put out the rudiments of development in this direction. I agree with Asan Ata that energy is the head of everything, energy is needed for any kind of activity. If in the world they decide to collapse the prices of oil, gas, coal, then in the case of such a kipish, Russia will be reformatted to the domestic market and provide energy to itself, but in Europe then there will be a really difficult situation. The EU does not want this alignment and will by all means support a more or less high level of oil prices. There are some incomprehensible things with shale gases. In addition to the confusion with the real volume of this gas in the United States, shale gas production causes enormous environmental damage. There are already investigations into this matter. So when the Americans pound on this, gas production will cease, and Russian oil and gas will again be expensive.

      The article, of course, catches up with horror, but the main message is true: you can not sit on the trade with only raw materials. It is necessary at an accelerated pace to invest loot from the income from the sale of resources in the development of the production of finished products. And highly desirable high technology. Moreover, it was necessary to do this a few years ago with the state. participation.

      In the case of kipish, Russia will reorient to the domestic (including part of the CIS) market, but in the same civil aviation we will have a polar fox, as in many other industries that ALREADY depend on foreign supplies.
      Energy is, of course, the head of everything, but you won't be able to sit forever on its "traditional" sources. And here we need a lot of political will to toughly oppose the same oil and gas lobby and develop alternative energy sources.
      For example, what prevents you from concluding joint contracts with the same Icelanders and building geothermal power plants in Kamchatka (in Iceland there are such plants and are doing their job perfectly)? And about this the question was raised by smart people as if not in the 90s. Well, then it was unrealistic to implement such a project for obvious reasons, but from the middle of the zero such opportunities appeared.
      Or, using the huge open spaces of the northern latitudes and the steppe zone, it is possible to build a whole whip of wind generators, which will solve the issue of power supply to the whole region?
      it is clear that such things will require costs, possibly greater than, for example, the delivery of the same fuel oil to Kamchatka and northern thermal power plants. However, this is the development of technology and progress, which then will fully pay off.

      Instead, we see what? That's right - Skolkovo and tagaz with a fret-viburnum forged in the flame of Orodruin

    The article is missing a "small part". But what should be done to prevent the crash? Delyagin rightly criticizes the current system, but does not offer anything in return for one simple reason, it was this system that gave birth to a lot of people like him, and its collapse will simply leave him without work. After all, a logical continuation of the article would be a call to socialism. And socialism does not need talker-Delyagins, it needs people who will work with faith in tomorrow and who are capable, among other things, in the name of this faith, to go to hardships and hardships. No other society except the socialist one is capable of making a prosperous country out of a collapsed country. Capitalism simply does not know such examples, but Russian socialism does. We have pulled our homeland out of the abyss at least twice in one century.

            Thanks to the policies of the current leadership, the collapse of the country was prevented — I'm not just sure, convinced of this. But the forces that brought the separatism virus to us will never calm down - and it’s not the leadership’s fault that this is so. It is clear that not all the actions of our authorities are effective, and they often act by poking, choosing the lesser evil ... but if in Soviet times you made mistakes in national politics ... what do you think you can do without mistakes? But talk about that. that it’s precisely the actions of the authorities that are pushing the country to disintegration-unreasonably.

And the meaning of the analogy is that in order to achieve a certain result, sometimes there is a need to sacrifice something, within reasonable limits. The way you turn my analogy leads not to a logical result in the form of a work of art, but to a pile of crumbled marble.

    Lower energy prices will entail a reduction in the cost of production of the product.
    Reducing the cost of the product leads to an increase in demand, further along the chain - the expansion of production, an increase in the need for energy and an increase in prices. There will certainly be price fluctuations, but nothing will change radically.
    In general, the current price of oil and gasoline is relatively low. It should not cost a liter of gasoline cheaper than a bottle of lemonade.

Whatever the authorities do not push on the zombie box, I see one thing: in my 100-thousandth city there are about 3000 people who produce WHAT -To do it yourself (and then from time to time). The rest are selling (goods or bread), or it is generally not clear what they are doing. Roughly the same ratio in many regions. That was the deepest meaning of the capitalist coup in 91, to turn Russians into “Papuans” selling “bananas”. And when they got hooked on this business specifically and relaxed, then prices collapse.

      Moreover, such alarmist screams merge into a friendly, clearly "orchestrated" chorus ... and the stronger the country's position, the more amicable the chorus ... these "appropriate procedures" were not in vain carried out with alarmists - the rumors spread by them were sometimes more dangerous than the strongest enemy, because they killed the people's faith in themselves.

    I think the article should be taken seriously, the 1998 crisis, our government did not teach anything. Another crisis of the same kind, Russia simply can not stand. It is necessary to change the system, the market stupid economy of Russia is completely unsuitable. It is necessary to actively stimulate the development of the country, stimulate the birth rate by any means, increase the incomes of the population, and attract compatriots from abroad. Otherwise, the future in our deplorable country is huge, the population is very small. We do not need Putin, but Peter 1
    Only such a person can restore order in the country and protect it from destruction.

      You have not noticed. what is all this being done? It may be clumsy, but it’s being done ... do you have very poor eyesight? :)))
      And we don’t need Peter 1 — we don’t need a third reduction in the population and stupid copying of the bad things from the West — we had enough of that even in the nineties — the Stalin post-war policy is better (by the way, Stalin abolished the death penalty in May 47). The trouble is that moral values ​​were changed in the nineties ... to immoral ones, and now it is much harder to make a breakthrough - there is no enthusiasm - many people like to pour mud over their country and bad power and demand blood than do something before turning blue. ..and they don’t understand. that if the blood-khan is interrogated, we will be like a country ...

Aluminum fell in price - Deripaska threatens that if the state doesn’t help, he will close the Krasnoyarsk aluminum plant until better times. As a result, someone from the government suggests creating state reserves of aluminum. Why buy aluminum from the same Deripaska. The volumes of gas exported to Europe are declining. The list goes on. And in order to find out what the author offers, you can go to his website and read other materials.

    And I liked the article, everything looks very logical, but I do not think that everything will go according to the most pessimistic scenario. And Mr. Delyagin, in my humble opinion, always looks at the current processes in Russia negatively. But the article was nothing, it was nice to read.

    The article is really "all gone"
    The author somehow looks at large proportions, what profit they bring. But the point is how many people are employed in the big "sharags". And how much in medium and small businesses. For ordinary people, work will always be, it always is. Just don't chase after 300% profit. And if you receive about 40-50% of the profitability of the enterprise, you will always live well. And also the people who work for you. And dofanar all crises and price surges are not on the stock exchange. Well, if you don't get 50% today, you get 20%. So tomorrow these grabbers will calm down and everything will level out, and you will again have 50% profit. GOOD PEOPLE AND SLEEPING IN PRODUCTION, THIS IS THE MAIN CAPITAL. Just like in the state.

    In my opinion, now we have come up not to overproduction of resources, but rather to overproduction of high technologies. Civilization simply does not have time to process and master one stage, as the next one appears. Therefore, now, oddly enough, it can be more efficient to use old models, because they do not require time to master. For example: If a programmer (middle-aged) followed all the latest innovations and constantly changed software, hardware, introduced the latest standards, he simply wouldn’t have time for the main work. Or the same example with a 5th generation fighter: is it better than the fourth generation or the fifth fifth? And this situation creates a strong instability in the economy, because of this less developed countries show higher rates of development. Oddly enough, the way out of such a situation in history is the same as with the overproduction of resources - war.

    I want to express the thoughts of an amateur economist. I always ask myself the question, why, having excess profits, not a single high-tech enterprise has been built in the country? The factories and the factory built in 30-80 - those of the last century are operated. The new owners of these enterprises pump money out of them, send them abroad without investing a dime in development. With such a development of events, the author’s assumptions are not so far from the truth. And most importantly: the need to develop technology is spoken at all levels, from the President to theoretical economists and practitioners. But nobody does anything. Sad gentlemen!

    what `s next? Will Russia stop receiving green paper for its oil, but is there any certainty that the meaning of green paper will still remain? To survive, we need industry that covers at least domestic demand and raw materials for industry. We will not sell raw materials, we will remain. We need to develop industry, at least produce necessary things for life. And replace imports. Purchase of foreign goods for foreign loans or in exchange for resources at least stupidity because this is the best way to break up their own production capacities. And green paper, ideally, should be banned from circulation on the territory of the Russian Federation. Whenever we buy dollars or sell resources for dollars, we transfer part of American inflation to Russia

    not only shale gas, but it also needs to be delivered in liquefied form, and you naively think that it will be more competitive in price?
    if such parallels are drawn. then Qatar, sooner or later, with or without Assad, will lead a pipe to Europe, and then the Yankees will find there a lack of democracy, well, a hundred pounds
    and about the fall in energy prices, well, every 5-10-15 years, but in general, everything is growing, and gasoline at gas stations is not getting cheaper
    that's when they find an alternative mass source of energy. which is much cheaper than any thermal power plant, not to mention the nuclear power plant and hydroelectric power station, or at least at the level. then the world of shock awaits reworking influence

    The author, despite the thickening of colors, is largely right! Yesterday, on Channel One, Medvedev asked Sechin in all seriousness: "Is a sharp drop in energy prices possible in the near future," and even though the latter answered no, the signal for the people is clear, in my opinion!

                This is the fate of farms around the world. What do you think agricultural holdings will not stand? I'm more than sure. Tk try such enterprises to pursue a policy from production to sale. In this case, the goods will always be in demand. For all payments in rubles.

      The missile defense positions in the territory of Poland were within the range of the Iskander, which we would definitely have placed if the missile defense were deployed there. In addition, it was possible that they would install special warheads. It was not for nothing that the Poles in the masses supported the deployment of missile defense.
      And it’s incorrect to compare axes and Iskanders — these are different missiles.
