Calling the May (2012 of the year) decrees of the president (and at the same time many of his subsequent orders and instructions) impracticable, the leaders of the economic bloc of our government in no way lie. These decrees are truly not enforceable not only for this government, but for any government that is guided by the same economic theory that the current government of the Russian Federation is guided by.
This theory as a whole is based on libertarian principles, which boil down to the fact that the state has no right to do anything useful for society at all. The state should be, according to this theory, at best an arbiter ensuring the observance of the rules of the game - but the game itself should be played only by individuals who are in no way affiliated with the state. This option works well, so far and because the external environment contributes to the success of individuals. And this situation is not always.
In particular, in the midst of the economic crisis, direct and very active government intervention is clearly required. This is proved by the experience of the previous First Great Depression, and by the course of the present - the Second Great Depression. It is trying to get out of it precisely by the state. True, not all recipes used for this work efficiently. Moreover, some of them are able to even give the opposite result: in particular, excess monetary emission, which can pay off a brief recession, with long-term use causes long-term damage. But in those places where the state does not work at all, the depression passes especially hard.
In our country, the government is guided by the theory which, in case of a depression, prescribes the maximum departure of the state from active activities. What happens at the same time is evident, in particular, just from what the government says about the impracticability of presidential decrees. Who says this in plain text, who veiled - reporting that, they say, we are trying our best, but for some reason, so far nothing is working. But in any case, it is completely obvious: the government, guided by this theory, is indeed deliberately unable to execute any decree of any relevance to the economy.
This does not mean that the decrees themselves are erroneous. This only proves that the theory used by the government is erroneous. Whether it is possible to ensure that this government acts according to a different theory, or it’s necessary to say that another government has begun to act - I don’t say exactly. But for me, it is much easier to replace the government than to continue the experiment with such small chances of successful completion.
However, to some extent, the compatibility of the current government with sound economic theories can be predicted on the basis of a recent dispute over the Russian Academy of Sciences. As you know, in her department of economics, under the leadership of Sergey Yuryevich Glazyev, the economic development program of the Russian Federation was developed, which guarantees the growth of gross domestic product of at least 6% per year for the next couple of five-year plans. The economic bloc of the current government, even in the most vigorous promises, does not rise above 3% (as Mikhail Leonidovich Khazin noted, 2 – 3 could be pursued in a row to achieve only games with statistics in a row without contacting real life). The government’s response to the academic project was immediate. On the pinnacle promoted through the State Duma and even signed by the president a law subordinating all scientific life in the academy to the arbitrariness of financiers who have no idea about the essence of the scientific method. Some details of this law bear a distinct imprint of the petty vindictiveness of the main text developer - Vladimir Alexandrovich Mau, the member of the Russian Academy of Sciences under the Russian government, and the Russian Academy of National Economy, 2008 of the Academy of National Economy, not elected in 2002. and the civil service under the President of the Russian Federation, formed by the infusion of the Russian Academy of State Service under the President of the Russian Federation (the former Academy of Social Sciences under the Central Committee of the CPSU) at the Russian Academy of National Economy, the faithful partner in crime Yegor Tim rovicha Gaidar and Anatoly Chubais. But on the whole, the law is based on the same concept of libertarianism, which reduces all ideas about the benefits and development to the immediate results of market transactions. And the reason for its adoption is obvious: the academic project is based on the fundamental rejection of libertarianism in favor of state planning of the complex of the national economy as a whole. Based on this, I suppose that the current economic bloc of the Russian government is affected by libertarianism incurably and is not even able to understand - and not what to accept - tips coming from other concepts. Even if it is necessary to replace not only the ministers themselves, but also the entire ministerial apparatus, selected for the same concept of libertarianism, spread from Gorbachev's time in our country, like tobacco under Peter I Alekseevich Romanov, even if new people prove themselves (as Mikhail Leonidovich warned Khazin) are not versed in hardware technologies, so the quality of management of the economy will drop dramatically for several years - it is still immeasurably cheaper than moving further along the libertarian path leading to — as the government’s reaction shows Decrees of the President - is not a dead end, and to the edge.
