Merchants cannot be ruled. A bit about the opposition in the Russian government

Merchants cannot be ruled. A bit about the opposition in the Russian government

During the post-Soviet era, the composition of the economic bloc of our government changed almost every year. Alas, the results of these shifts, to put it mildly, are not obvious. Clearly, it is necessary to change (as I have repeatedly said and wrote) not specific government employees, but the economic doctrine itself, which our government is guided by.


The government proceeds as a whole from the doctrine of libertarianism — that is, the beneficence of unlimited economic freedom of the individual without any regard for society (the same liberalism speaks of political freedom). The technical details of the implementations of this doctrine, which have been tried over more than two decades, differ - but its essence remains unchanged.

What is bad? Essentially, first of all, the concept of libertarianism (and liberalism) only considers paired relationships between individuals, without taking into account more complex factors — in particular, not taking into account that the interactions themselves in turn influence each other.

Something similar is observed in modern physics. Photons - carriers of electromagnetic interaction - do not have an electric charge, and therefore do not seem to notice each other. But gluons - carriers of the so-called strong interaction - interact not only with quarks, but also with each other. Therefore, attempts to describe a strong interaction by the same mathematical means as electromagnetic, did not give results, even remotely similar to reality. Only the development of fundamentally new concepts allowed the creation of a unified theory, covering electromagnetic, weak (in many respects similar to electromagnetic, but provided with massive particles) and strong interactions.

The desire to limit the pairing interactions is primarily due to the fact that the libertarian concept, roughly speaking, trading.

Again, I have repeatedly said and written: production and trade are considered elements of a single process, but in fact they constantly compete with each other. Clearly, you can not sell what is not produced, and it makes no sense to produce something that will not be sold. From this point of view, the process is really uniform. But this does not prevent both its parts from dragging the blanket over themselves.

Moreover, in the course of tugging production workers are weaker than traders. After all, money, roughly speaking, impersonal, so that they are easier to concentrate in one direction than the goods. In each particular confrontation, the position of traders is stronger than the position of production workers, and they have more chances to win in this confrontation. Therefore, the famous American saying “the dollar to the one who invented it, 10 to the one who made it, 100 to the one who sold it” fairly adequately reflects the correlation of forces in this confrontation.

Moreover, I gradually had a hope that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was so actively focused on foreign policy, in particular, in order to limit the support of our traders from the outside and thus weaken their positions in domestic policy.

In general, when I first touched on this confrontation in the http://ibusiness.ru/blogs/20851 article “Many-body interactions” for the Business Journal, I noted there: in the United States of America at least half a century since the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Joseph-Patrickovich Kennedy — production workers are grouped mainly in the Republican Party, and merchants around the democratic party. True, since Business Journal is trying to keep itself out of politics, I didn’t point out there that in the Russian Federation it’s quite distinct and for a very long time production workers have been grouped around Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, and traders around Dmitry Medvedev.

Moreover, when the market is on the rise, the confrontation between traders and production workers is generally not so acute: there is something to divide. Although then there are all sorts of miracles. For example, Russian food producers constantly complain that they are forced to trade through large chains practically at a loss. Even when legislatively limited the permissible trade margins, the networks found other ways to ensure their interests at the expense of production workers - they come up with all sorts of admission fees, fees for placing counters at advantageous locations, and so on. This shows how strong merchants are even in good times.

But in the unfavorable - the merchants literally stifle the production workers in order to secure for themselves another month or another of relative prosperity. When the market falls, “there are always not enough sweet cakes,” as Bulat Shalvovich Okudzhava put it, this struggle escalates to a completely catastrophic state.

As far as I can tell, now the government can do absolutely nothing precisely because it is guided by the libertarian, trading logic, where everything is simple: I - you, you - me, and fled. The logic of production workers always focuses on technological chains that are more or less long in space and time. Mikhail Leonidovich Khazin regularly publishes on “However,” articles originating from a theory that relies precisely on this logic of the indivisibility of technological chains. The current government is in principle incapable of thinking within the framework of such logic - it is too sharpened by the logic of one-time interactions. Therefore, to change, I repeat, it is necessary first of all the very concept - to abandon libertarianism in general and reorient on theories emanating from the logic of large systems and large processes, and to select a new government for this logic.

It should be noted: in the current government there are people working within the framework of this logic of large systems. For example, the current Deputy Prime Minister for the defense industry and the current Minister of Defense are forced by their own position to think within the logic of large systems with strong interconnections. Therefore, I think that they will remain in the future government.

But it is rather difficult to hope that, say, the master of business administration Arkady Vladimirovich Dvorkovich will ever understand that everything he was taught in various nurseries of libertarianism is logic that can be guided by the maximum of the manager of the trading hall, and not the head of the state level. Of course, it is theoretically possible that sooner or later he will comprehend this simple truth. But in my opinion, it is much cheaper for a country to provide it with an opportunity to study not in the workplace, but to put a person into this workplace, who has already been trained in understanding how the state differs from a store counter.

        Created it correctly, but about the transfer of power to him now, it is unlikely. The presidential term of the LADY is clear to everyone: "GDP left a place to guard." Who has been the real owner of the presidential cabinet all this time is no secret to anyone.
        Now the situation is fundamentally different and the receiver must be really strong and independent.

        Medvedev created the State Department while Putin could not radically influence events. Himself will fall off because just do nothing. If the State Department didn’t really support him, he would be listed in contingent posts.

      Honestly, without control of GDP, the country will not remain for sure. There is an assumption that they formed a certain strawberry there, according to the principle of how Ontole speaks about DAM and GDP. So all more or less serious people say so in the cards are thrown on the hut at the GDP, and at DAM on the hut they just discuss it. Regarding the one who will replace Vladimir Vladimirovich - all the possible figures on the screens. Each official or minister or deputy prime minister who is mentioned in the compartment with the country's policies and GDP in particular is the candidate for replacement. I think by the end of the current period of GDP, either the election law will change or such a candidate will be for which everyone will vote. I also think that in any case, the GDP will not leave the government while it is alive, and it will live for a really long time.

    Now the government can do absolutely nothing precisely because it is guided by the logic of libertarian, trade, where everything is simple: I - to you, you - to me, and fled.

    So many members of our government are now simple, or more precisely, the simplest. Like amoebas, capable of supporting only their existence.

      VVputin himself from the head of the club grew up to the President, but in fact he remained the head .....
      This manifested itself especially vividly when He punished the ministers and, through mts, took the penalty (he didn’t want to be sovereign, they showed him that it’s not He who decides everything))))

      That the production workers "try" themselves with hopes near the GDP is true, only in vain .... PRODUCTION in Russia is allowed to open 100-200 people and spread rot with thousands of workers ....

    Very correct article. In the current cabinet, with a big stretch, you can find people who understand what they are doing. Dvorkovich is a special song. And the prime minister and his vice are still leaders. I understand that it’s hard to get rid of such a ballast, it must be done, because no matter how long-suffering the Russian people are, everything has a limit. I would like to know what all these loafers are doing there, except for their posts that have huge business on the side (for example, Mr. Shuvalov has very interestingly recently explained to all of stupid Russia who he makes money for). How long will these bloodsuckers suck Russia?

      Yes, the fact of the matter is that not everything is so simple nowadays .. alas. Stalin didn’t have access to the Internet .. He blocked the borders, cleared the fifth column, sabotaged thieves) we feel everything and use the benefits of that time (even if you take into account half territories lost robbed us in the 90s ..)

(just don’t say that it all happened under pain of death and execution ..) I’m not harder for Putin to envy him, but I still believe that will cope (let him just try not to cope)))

    With all due respect to A. Wasserman (and for me he is one of the few people not only erudite, but also a person with an analytical mindset, especially my own thoughts on the transition from "democracy" to "socialism") I will try to object. Our country is under powerful pressure from outside government. There are no forces to resist on all fronts. While there is a struggle in the foreign policy arena. On the inside, a controlled retreat. It's good to scold Medvedev, like he doesn't "fight." And if you don't have the strength yet? As the saying goes: do not shoot the pianist, he plays as best he can. The time will come, we will turn to the counteroffensive.

    How familiar is it when traders simply turn their hands away !!! Therefore, for a country to develop in a balanced way, production needs to be helped, and trade without a piece of bread, butter and caviar (black, red, squash) will certainly not remain; in the worst case, it will shift to the consumer, but in the best it will work itself !!!

        There is no need to read between the lines in my comment! So, you need to wear glasses. In every sentence, a citizen of Ukraine, there are words about "our government", while talking about a completely different country, namely, Russia!

        It seems your words ..
        Well, they can’t not stick their nose into the affairs of others and not be a plug in every barrel!

        Then you have a split personality - well, if you like it, then ours with a brush.

    I agree with Wasserman's analytics regarding the motivation of manufacturers and traders.
    I do not share his views in terms of personalities. It seems that he is simply conscientiously idealizing the situation. Production-minded people in Russia have grown up. Their last squad is the "red directors" of the early 90s. They really tried to preserve the production environment with every means available to them. I knew some of them personally. They were a real threat to the then government. They were worn out: most of them were simply bought, tempted with the opportunity to rob their own enterprises or sell them to robust third-party robbers; whom they could not buy (there were also such "hard Iskra-ists") were simply kicked out without severance pay. So now - alas! - this social group simply does not exist. All "production workers" in fact behave like vulgar hucksters, taking apart the remnants of their enterprises while at least something else is spinning in them.
    And hopes for GDP are also an illusion. Then Meehan noticed everything for sure.

    Putin created Medvedev, and you say power will pass to him! There is only one option - "I gave birth to you, I you and ..." !!!
    Everything at all - the resignation and head of the new United Supreme Court, but who is in his place? Kudrin, Golodets ... Who?

    Sergey Glazyev.

    I wrote several times on this forum that with this government, or rather the prime minister, we will drive into the abyss. A friend of Stouretkin, a fan of the humpback, the author of many initiatives such as translating arrows and "not a nightmare business." After the Olympics, retire.

    I wrote about Durkovich Dvorkovich very beautifully, just a balm for the soul, and, in general, an interesting message in the whole article! +++

    Moreover, I gradually had a hope that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was so actively focused on foreign policy, in particular, in order to limit the support of our traders from the outside and thus weaken their positions in domestic policy.

    All right! Before treating a disease, you need to remove its cause.
    Anatoly made a detailed analysis as always. It's time to give him the Order of Merit to the Fatherland !!!

    Why go broke. They will listen to whom. Until they get the forks in the belly and will fatten. And then it will not reach for which they put the pitchfork to them ...
