Black Tuesday October 11, 1994

20 years ago, 11 in October 1994, Russia, the collapse of the ruble against the dollar occurred (the so-called “black Tuesday”). In just one day on the MICEX Stock Exchange, the dollar rose by more than 27% (from 3081 rubles to 3926 rubles per dollar). The demand for currency 11 October reached a record - 335,7 million dollars with the proposal of all 24,25 million. "Black Tuesday" became a symbol of the general degradation of the Russian economy after the collapse of the Soviet Union and an indicator of the activity of "reformers" who, in fact, fulfilled the order to destroy the national economy countries and the socio-economic genocide of the peoples of the Russian civilization. Unfortunately, these figures and their ideological heirs are still considered the “elite” of the Russian Federation.

The situation in the Russian economy at this time was determined by the following processes: a general decline in the national economy, a decrease in the volume of GDP and progressive inflation. All this was aggravated by the growing outflow of capital abroad, the growth of non-payment, the “dollarization” of the economy and the financial congestion from the West, which was intensified by loans issued to the Russian authorities by international monetary organizations. In the economy, there were other negative phenomena.

It should be noted that all these processes were manageable. Although the liberals in the years of perestroika and “reforms” tried to convince the population that the market “regulates” everything. Thus, high inflation has so far been attempted to explain the existence of an “excess” mass of money in circulation. According to the quantity theory of money, the amount of money in circulation is equal to the sum of the prices of goods sold. The more money, the higher the price. However, the population in the early 1990-s was deceived. They are deceiving now, when inflation has grown in recent years despite the lack of money in the real sector.

During perestroika, there was a shortage of goods (it was also artificially caused, but this is a topic for another conversation). Since 1992, it has been rapidly eliminated - both imported and domestic goods rushed to the market. True, along with the deficit, they dealt a mortal blow to domestic industry and agriculture. It seemed that the level of consumption of the population should grow. Indeed, during perestroika, unsecured money accumulated and the standard of living accumulated, as compared with the Brezhnev era, fell. Now the demand has been met. It is clear that at the same time there was an increase in prices for goods, but even with the increased and ever-increasing prices, the goods would continue to come true, to meet the demand, until the so-called. The “money overhang” (the surplus of money, the part of the money supply that people have only because they cannot spend this money) has not completely disappeared.

At the same time, the level of consumption of the population was supposed to grow, and an increase in living standards would occur. However, this level continued to fall. Obviously, prices did not rise because extra money poured into the market and not because demand exceeded supply. The reason is different. The "extra" money was constantly in the language of the reformers (apparently, in their pocket), the population did not have them. Otherwise, the population would have dramatically improved their standard of living. Essentially, nThe policy of the then authorities, aimed at reducing government spending on social needs, public sector wages, armed forces, etc., was the plunder of the people and socio-economic genocide. The only question is who of the statesmen and officials did this consciously and is the enemy of the people, and who sincerely believed in Western theories, becoming a fool.

Russia has created an amazing system of plunder of the country and the people, sucking money, resources and valuable materials to the West and partially the East. The local new capitalists, the emerging comprador bourgeoisie, did not make any contribution. "New Russians" could now push up prices with impunity and arbitrarily, lay in them any kind of imaginable and fantastic costs, profits and super-profits, just stealing, etc. However, they were only a serving stratum, the real leaders of the process were in the West.

In Russia, not only the standard of living of consumers did not increase from “excess” money, but most conscientious producers did not see the money either. Most of the capital flowed to the West. This process was organized through the "dollarization" of the economy. The dollar has become the primary indicator of inflation and generally the main financial indicator. It was reported in the first lines. Newsas critical information. Because of this, even a certain psychosis has developed in society. Everyone was watching the dollar hard. The liberals extolled the slightest signs of its stabilization as their victory. As a result, all the attention of society was tied to the dollar, which has become a symbol of the entire economy. Commodity prices were pegged to the dollar. A whole layer of speculators has appeared - from street money changers to banking structures. They speculated on the game in the depreciation of the ruble. Another take-off of the dollar was carried out, prices for imported goods rose immediately, and then for domestic goods. As a result, domestic inflation was the result of the depreciation of the ruble in the foreign exchange market. The ruble has become a toy in the hands of speculators.

Thus, inflation was not initiated in the commodity market, and not in the Russian economy in general. It arose outside the national economy, but proceeded and developed in it. Inflation was an external factor and did not arise as a result of a spontaneous market game, as the liberals tried and tried to convince, but artificially created and subjugated the "elements" of the market.

An internal tool that helped the West pump out capital from Russia was a network of commercial banks led by the Central Bank, which also, in fact, was a private shop. Against the background of a massive depletion of the people and the degradation of the national economy, from which the capital necessary to preserve the existing production and development was pumped out, the banking network began to resemble a vampire shining from the blood drunk. In fact, with the help of this system, Russia-USSR stole national wealth, which was accumulated for decades of hard work. Real resources were exchanged for green paper, they bought it back and brought it back to the West.

The policy of the Central Bank allowed to enrich certain groups of the population. Thus, for quite a long time, the Central Bank refinancing rate was lower than the inflation rate, that is, the Central Bank gave money for nothing to commercial banks. Another method of robbery was widespread payment delays. They were explained by "technical problems" by the physical shortage of cash in the country. The main reason was the desire to earn extra money. Inflation was beneficial to debtors and banks, through which all payments were made. The mechanism was extremely simple: let's say, inflation is 30% per month, that is, 1% per day. The bank delays the payment and, instead of sending the payment to the address, sends money to the currency exchange and buys dollars. On the next day, you can sell dollars at a price that increased by 1%. This percentage is left to itself, and the amount due is sent to the addressee. 1% per day is tens of percent per month and hundreds per year. As a result, financial speculators received profits that were unthinkable for a normal economy. In fact, this area of ​​profitability almost equaled the drug trade. It is not surprising that the “debtor syndrome” covered almost all the offices that were involved in money matters.

The greatest profit could be obtained through the use of the MICEX rate. This institution was a kind of monopolist in the foreign exchange market. In the name of the chimera of liberalism, the state was removed from the regulatory functions; therefore, all the potential capabilities of the MICEX were exploited by large speculators in the name of their vested interests. Inflation was a tool with the help of which it was possible to “honestly” assign other people's money, and on a large scale. To do this, they started buying up dollars on the MICEX, panic is spreading: everyone thinks that a surge of inflation begins and rush to buy dollars. As a result, inflation does begin. When the panic reaches its peak, you can sell dollars and count money made from the air. More information about this process of robbing the population can be read in the work of A. Usov “K stories 1992-1998 reforms. ”

Such machinations solved the problem of not only enriching the new "elite", which began to serve the interests of the owners of the West in Russia, but other important tasks. So, a blow was struck to the country's financial system, it was actually occupied, the ruble exchange rate was undermined, and the dollar was artificially raised. The dollar (the “golden calf”) has become the god of a certain stratum of the population, ready to go to the betrayal of national interests for the sake of personal enrichment. There was a process of dollarization of the Russian economy, i.e. the process of eliminating the financial sovereignty of countries. In addition, there was a process of capture by Western manufacturers of the Russian market.

The main goal of the reformers was not market reforms, not the growth of the welfare of the population, not financial stability and other excuses, but servicing the strategic interests of the West. This was the main task of the "reformers." They began to throw a financial noose on Russia even under Gorbachev (external debt), while the liberals continued and deepened this policy of financial and economic enslavement of Russia. The theft of compradors and speculators-financiers in the West turned a blind eye, it was a kind of "salary", a reward for serving clerks-managers. The reformers were allowed to "feed" at the expense of the peoples of the Russian Federation, to become the "elite", the masters of life. Although in the West, they knew the true price of lackeys and serfs. They turned Russia into a colony of the West and were rewarded with the opportunity to reward themselves.

Black Tuesday 11 October 1994 only showed the prevailing trend in the economy. Since June, 1994 has been increasing "defaults", that is, there was a game on the dollar rate. From June to September they grew 6-7 times. The funds were withdrawn from circulation and accumulated for transferring to the stock exchange and buying up dollars. This led to a fall in payments to the budget, where a “hole” was formed in 40-45 trillion. rubles. This caused emissions and inflation. In July, the money supply increased by 10%, in August - by 12%. Inflation rose from 4-5% to 7-8%.

Central Bank for some reason hastily lowered the refinancing rate. Although it is clear that in the period of inflation, the fee for the loan should not be negative. The Central Bank continued to distribute money in vain, instead of increasing the percentage. Sberbank and other banks have reduced interest on deposits. The Ministry of Finance has further aggravated the situation, saying that from 1995, it will impose a tax on income on deposits. As a result, the outflow of ruble deposits and the growth in demand for currency began. In July, the population spent on the currency 3,7 trillion. rubles (at the beginning of the year it was 1,9 trillion), in August already 6 trillion, in September 6,6 trillion. At the same time, the Central Bank, for “incomprehensible” reasons, stopped regulating the rates of buying and selling currency to the public. The whole turn has become speculative. And commercial banks began buying up currency.

It is also worth noting that in 1994, Russia had a positive balance in foreign trade (compared to 1993, the increase was almost 2 times). That is, the supply of currency to the markets did not decline, but grew. Panic arose not as a result, but in spite of the objective picture.

Now you can break a big kus. State structures took part in this game. So, the Ministry of Finance and the State Tax Service related to the panic on the MICEX (report of the State Commission of O. Lobov “On the results of investigating the reasons for the sharp destabilization of the financial market”, WP 9.11.94). 23 August saw a “gray day” - demand for dollars exceeded supply by 310 million, the Central Bank extinguished this surge by “injection” into 307 million. On October 4, the situation developed similarly: excess demand for 326 million and a logical response of the Central Bank again (entering additional 310 million). According to the idea, the Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development should have been “interested” in the crisis that has arisen and dealt with the situation. However, this did not happen. Moreover, 11 in October, commercial banks again play in concert - the excess of demand reaches up to 312 million dollars. And then the Central Bank makes a "trick": it reduces the supply to 80 million. The dollar exchange rate has risen sharply.

Thus, the Central Bank allegedly did not “appreciate” and did not “present” the whole degree of danger, the MICEX management considered that everything was “normal”, since speculation on the stock exchange is normal. The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Economic Development have withdrawn. And certain structures tore a big score. Already October 11, some banks have started the game to lower the dollar. For example, the bank Gusinsky "Most" sold 14 million dollars, and two days later, when the dollar depreciated slightly, he bought 18 million dollars for the same rubles.

      Yeah, the same 27% since the start of the announcement of the sanctions. But the prices for the ball were not inflated by mattress covers, but ours - and we have what we have.

      Yes, and EP completely overwhelmed in a thought with compensation from the budget to all Rottenbergs. They pump money out of here, export capital abroad, and we still have to pay their European risks through the budget for risks.
      Conclusion: the Russian party of oligarchs stuck out their mugs.

            I do not argue, there is probably corruption too - but the main thing is that after the collapse of the Soviet Union we were all left without our own financial system - and we had to accept the offer of the West and integrate into their system (all the more so then all polls were of "liberal views")

            Now, as we all know, they have lost their economic sovereignty and the West has huge levers of pressure both on the Russian Federation and on other republics. We cannot print our currency if we do not buy dollars for this amount - lending from the "faucet" of the FRS - open borders and that capital outflow is eternal (A Parshev wrote well on this topic)

            But becoming like the North Koreans "Juche" is also not an option - after all, the USSR was not isolated - it built an alternative to the FRS and almost half of the world was turned on - while the USSR did not rob developing countries like the West - but also managed to help them all - while reaching the highest possible in these natural and geopolitical conditions of the standard of living (in the 90s it was painful to fall from such a height)

            Therefore, I also support what the leaders of the Eurasian troika do, but for us alone it is not enough to create an alternative system, it is very important what China and the BRICS do (as we see other large countries like Argentina or Iran stretch there)
            If this goes well and no one backs down and is not afraid, then in 10-15 years everything will become better

              The USSR was closed from world speculators, there were no exchanges where you can buy and then bring down national currency, bonds, stocks. the ruble was determined by the government, there was no demand for foreign currency; the circulation of the dollar was forbidden. I believe it is necessary to return to this system in order to protect the country from financial sabotage from the West

                As I understand it, you are a supporter of Glazyev’s ideas, and so - if you tear off the ruble from world trading, you will get non-convertible currency, look at Dill - the country in F, the economy in F, and the rate of the wooden hryvnia is tolerable. The USSR experienced serious problems with the currency, and the state of the country's economy without hard currency is difficult to assess, because the country is not immediately in the global trend.

                He emphasized that the use of the ruble and the renminbi in the calculations will reduce the dependence of enterprises on fluctuations in the dollar and increase the efficiency of conversion operations.

                The Chinese banker urged the banks of both countries to create consortia to finance large infrastructure projects, as well as to more actively use debt and derivatives.

              It has changed, in that state of 94 we would already have had "Black Tuesday" almost after the start of sanctions and inflation equal to the fall of the ruble. Now the market is holding on, firms tied to the dollar and not concerned with competitive offers are being squeezed out and suffering losses. This is all with the serious efforts of the bourgeoisie to increase the dollar and the fall in oil prices, let's see how long the bourgeoisie will "freeze their ears to evil grandmother."

      It used to make me laugh, but now it just annoys me when money, in this case, the ruble, is spoken of as some kind of material, even living object - it collapsed, collapsed, grew up. Moreover, as if he took it all and did it himself, and that's it. , including the real creators of the process, sit and watch. What will happen next? And it’s even funnier - what some “stock analyst” like Karievsky would say on TV 24, it’s like asking a neighbor on the table to put on the roulette wheel. There is a real banking war, which sometimes spills out in the media in the form of information about the closure the next batch of banks = cash dumpsters and withdrawal of money over the hill, and of course, Occupy Hong Kong. However, in the latter case, it is interesting - did the Chinese take a step back, or quietly stepped on the sore corns of the Fed and they curtailed the special operation ??

          Doing it all at once will fail. It's like dumping everything on one plate at dinner - the first and second and third. But for some reason we stubbornly eat soup first, then cutlet and lastly - sweet.
          So in the formation of our country - first you need to restore the Army - it is the future guarantor of reform within the country so that no one can interfere with us from the outside, to carry out these reforms.
          Then, I think, there will be a struggle against food dependence, or rather, it is already underway.
          And for the sweet - again it seems to me that there will be a struggle with the corrupt elite and the oligarchs.
          I see this process. But he is not very fast - a solid house, is not being built quickly!

          What prevented him from "putting things in order" before that?

          All that you have listed plus his belonging to those listed in paragraph 1. Well, he will not bite his hands, which put him in a "chair with a high back", and some disagreements are only a consequence of the division of spheres of influence. A weak army and food dependence are a direct consequence of the efforts of those who belong to point 1, which, however, is detailed in the article under discussion.

          Agriculture was deliberately destroyed in order to operate with impunity in the food market, feeding the Russians imported d.u.r.m. at prices "how much arrogance is enough."
          The degradation of the army is a direct consequence of financing by the residual principle, or rather, non-financing, because state money was famously plundered with a scientific look and important bloating.

P.
    Agrabezh country, of course it was, this is the year of privatization and vouchers
    close people had the opportunity, both to obtain loans at ridiculous interest, and to buy dollars at ridiculous rates (I don’t even touch on the non-cash sector, where they used to do whatever they wanted)
    They pulled the people to the hilt, burned all their savings, bought vouchers for next to nothing (for taken preferential loans), vouchers privatized (at closed auctions) companies for next to nothing, becoming the masters of everyone and everything-- they finished the economy by barter-- avoiding paying taxes.

    Like a patient who blames life and its cruelty for his illness, and the fact that he is rotten from the brain to the bone does not notice, and how the patient will notice the brain is rotten. An attempt to accuse his masters of his own misfortunes directly indicates insignificance, a soulless and weak-willed mass. Movement of the masses without a clear, clear idiology is always a chaotic movement in search of food. To want to live well is not just not idiology, but even the very last microbe on this planet "thinks" so. As one fellow used to say: - "Not united by bread."

The dollar rose yes (after the downing of the Boeing) and how did it affect me ?? - almost nothing - except for the price of gasoline (unpleasant, I argue). BUT in 1993 1994 - prices rose EVERY day! and, it happened, by 10 -15%. And for my salary (in 1992, the equivalent of $ 27 to 1996- $ 65) I could buy a little cheap Chinese brahla and drink moonshine now. Now I am a simple hard worker at the factory, but I have an apartment with two cars, two garages and not much worried about a course of green ovace toilet paper ..

    After such articles, only one thought always visits me: what are you doing, Vovochka.
    Specifically, Putin’s actions do not converge in my head; it seems to do good, but it still turns out more bad.
    I always reacted to him neutrally, but in recent years I somehow matured myself or something (all the more constantly drawing on comparisons with the USSR (and I respect the USSR) and now it is definitely negative for me. Still, he is a liberal.
    And I consider all the talk about a raised country and about the great growth of GDP in the zero years a baby talk of amorphous people. It is probably impossible to change the consciousness of this majority ...
    I doubt that in 2018 a young or not very reformer-patriot will sharply appear, who will return the execution and quickly apply it to Serdyukov and meadow, as well as break all relations with Europe and the USA (leaving them only a pipe), close the economy, accelerate edrossov and generally call him Stalin 2.0. No, such a person will certainly appear, but for now, Putin and his team of bad people decide everything.
    Already sick of all these cooperations, globalization, complete permissiveness, hedonism, etc.
    I apologize for pouring my soul so extensively here. I just want as many people as possible to understand - if you live in prosperity and everything around you is not so bad (although for this you need to be blind and deaf), and you are used to capitalism and have become a cosmopolitan, then all this does not mean that it should always be so and that this is the right way. I do not call for revolution; peaceful methods still remain. I hope someone understood me.

    Wow, remember.
    And the scheme was simple, they took a loan in rubles, converted it and after a while they returned it in rubles. Another scheme, someone took a loan for themselves, with a decent kickback, the one who gave it, a couple of days of joy and "eternal sleep" in the nearest forest.
    It’s good that they kicked us out of the ruble zone. Although the same thing happened for us but not for a long time, and the buck rolled back, but it was in the early 2000s, 142 and then around 120 tenge, it stayed for a rather long time.

    The dollar exchange rate, it is absolutely obvious, has nothing to do with the growth or decline of the Russian economy, these are stock exchange games of banks to rob the Russian population, and an occasion to raise prices and lower wages.
    The dollar, worthless dirty green paper worth 10 kopecks, regardless of face value, bankers turned into real goods, to buy up the resources of Russia and not only Russia.
    The fall of the dollar, as an international currency, is beneficial for the industry of all countries and deadly for Jewish banks.

    Thus, the Central Bank allegedly did not "evaluate" and did not "present" the entire degree of danger, the MICEX management considered that everything was "normal", since speculation on the stock exchange was normal.

    The author mixed everything in a heap. The Central Bank is a state structure, and not subordinate to the government, independent, but MICEX is a private enterprise, where the state does not have a decisive role. He has a large share of shares there, but nothing more.
    As for speculation on the exchange rate, they have always been, especially if the country's economy depended on external income.
    But no one has died from this yet. It is not entirely clear why the author writes about this as an epoch-making national catastrophe. Such things really did not affect anyone's standard of living.
    And certain structures hit a big jackpot.

    So what? If the author believes that someone illegally enriched himself at his expense, then let him sue. What problems? Or should he buy a fountain pen to write a statement? Let him give his address, I will send him a fountain pen. And a piece of paper in addition.
    And if the author is indignant only because he had nothing to do with "certain structures" then let him calm down. There is not enough room for everyone.
    We got already stupid articles on the topic "but I'm being exploited by the damned oligarchs." There are dofiga of them, including the author of the article. They obviously don't do anything, because they don't leave the Internet from morning to evening. But at the same time, we are sure that someone is "exploiting" them. How can you exploit someone who does nothing?

    Why argue. Stock speculation of decent profitability is impossible without panic. So they rock the boat. Russia's gold and foreign exchange reserves are such that the rate can be "dropped" below the plinth tomorrow. I do not think that no one controls the "fall of the ruble". Now it is profitable for the budget, so it is "falling".

    Anyone like this Tuesday in 1994. I didn't even really notice. 27% of the drop in the rate is so-slight malaise, no more. On August 17, 1998, it was also "Black Tuesday" - it was a complete "paragraph".
    The experts are unanimous only that the 1998 economic crisis in Russia led to such consequences as the devaluation of the national currency (the dollar exchange rate against the ruble increased by 4,5 times over several days), a sharp increase in prices and an equally rapid drop in the level of life. The collapse of large banks caused the population of Russia to lose confidence in the banking system and the financial market as a whole, experts say.
    4.5 times is not 27%. Do not go to Africa either. Complete default, but managed.

    The fall of the ruble makes it possible for foreign investors to invest in Russian enterprises at lower costs. Because any businessman understands that this fall is artificial. Once it will end and the ruble will climb up. The fall of the ruble creates a favorable environment for the construction of production by foreign companies in Russia. Note that not a single plant in Russia has closed, even Roshen, the pro-Poroshenko one, canned, not sold. Valio, Renault. But the dollar and the euro with its growth stop buying. They cease investing due to the high cost of producing Euro-dollar space. So Russia really has a chance of a breakthrough, while the euro and the dollar have a lower chance.
