Political weight of the ruble

76
In Russia, the price of bread was a political issue, showing the stability of the ruling regime. In the 1990-ies and to this day, the second such issue was the ruble exchange rate, which, given the share of imports in the domestic market, began to determine the numbers on price tags. Many Russians today are concerned about the question of what will be the rate of the national currency tomorrow, which everyone has long learned to compare with prices in stores and their own incomes. The fact that last year’s sensible initiatives to punish banking speculators have remained well-meaning wishes adds a special edge to what is happening. It turned out to be easier for lawmakers to tax ordinary Russians. So, from the situation of repetition of the stresses of the end of 2013 - the beginning of 2014 of the year or the collapse of the end of 2014 of the year (“Black Tuesday”), no one is insured.


Political weight of the ruble


In the near future, three important circumstances will put pressure on the ruble: a fall in the economy, a fall in oil prices and a government policy that seeks to plug holes in the budget with a sharp devaluation. Such side effects as stress and impoverishment of the population, the command of the sovereign husbands are of little concern: as independent economists tell us, only at the dollar price of at least 75 rubles the Medvedev government can keep the budget of the year from total collapse.

Today, what happens to the ruble is also extremely beneficial for bankers and other financial speculators with good insights, as well as for the commodity sector, which receives profits in foreign currency and incurs costs in a depreciating ruble. There is nothing to say about the benefits of Western countries: buying Russian assets cheaply and at the same time swaying the political situation (social protests in the country are already gaining momentum), they achieve two goals at once.

What can theoretically support the ruble? In the near future, of course, it is a cold winter in Western Europe and the US East Coast, which will cause an increased demand for energy. However, in that year, weather forecasters also promised a cold winter, but for the above-mentioned regions it was just a record warm one. Moreover, oil storage facilities around the world are overcrowded, and the Gulf monarchies will stifle any price spikes if necessary. So hope for the winter, if there is, it is very weak.

No one has canceled the impact on oil prices, and, consequently, the ruble, of the events in the Middle East. It is not even about Syria and Iraq, although about them too, but about Yemen, where the coalition of Arab countries risks meeting the first anniversary of the outbreak of the war.

The influence of the elections to the State Duma in September 2016 will have its effect. If the rate falls below the psychological barriers, then dissatisfaction with power will affect the results of the vote. Contrary to popular belief, the rule “it doesn’t matter who votes, it’s important who counts the results” doesn’t always work. An abstract “necessary” batch can be arranged with 55% with a real rating in 35%, but the same maneuver is difficult to do if the rating hangs around 10% and the air is electrified with revolutionary moods. Which, besides, have the broadest support, both from abroad, and from a part of regional elites. So from the point of view of ideal political expediency, the course should not change much before the elections.

True, all these arguments are valid only if one circumstance is observed. This circumstance is the exhaustion of the reserves of both the government and the Central Bank. Forecasts when reserves can be exhausted differ fundamentally. If the overwhelming optimists talk about the end of 2016 of the year, then according to other forecasts, the cubs will show the bottom already in the first quarter. Unfortunately, even the experts are not aware of the true state of the reserves, which, according to rumors, are being plundered by the court officials at an “accelerated pace”. And this is not counting support for various regimes in the CIS and the Syrian campaign. The inflation that followed and the catastrophic decline in the standard of living threaten with unpredictable political consequences.

It would seem that the sources of replenishment of foreign exchange reserves are literally under the nose. This is the same agriculture, which brought a huge foreign exchange earnings during the Russian Empire. Or engineering, which gave the currency to the Soviet Union. But for this, skills are needed that are greater than the ability to simply “master the budget.”

At the moment, forecasts regarding the national currency rate are more similar to fortune-telling by the stars. Both the experts and the population here are approximately on an equal footing - and those and others do not know what will happen tomorrow. Cherished insides, as always, there is only a handful of the elect - the banking elite.

    The ruble will remain at a low rate until the government suddenly changes its mind, and there are no reasons for this, as well as prerequisites.

    Indeed, a weak ruble is beneficial to everyone, even the Russian budget, oddly enough, and as long as the economic indicators (which are scribbled and ascribed) are acceptable, nothing will be done. Then, as always bam and hello 1998, remember how it happened? Literally in a day, the ruble was simply poured off, and our “benefactors” in the government were poured, while weld well personally.

      What can fix the situation with the ruble and the economy?
      The main thing is a change in economic policy, the resignation of the liberal Government of D. Medvedev.
      Without this, the trouble is for the Russian economy, the ruble, for the people and Russia itself !!!!

        But is there anyone who replaces this government and can create a strong economy? From a change of position, the sum, in this case, can become even less.
        There are two ways out - realistic and fantastic (from the joke of Yu. Nikulin).
        Realistic: aliens will fly in and fix everything.
        Fantastic: we will fix everything ourselves.

          In the recent regional elections, in almost all subjects of the federation, Medvedev's Party (United Russia) won, thereby the people voted for the previous course of NOT developing the country, and what do you want from Putin in this case? - what would he go against the will of the people? Maybe it’s time for us to think for ourselves who to vote for, and not to look for the extreme.

      During the time of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union - RUBLE was GOLD. And in the Russian Federation, the “ruble” is a derivative of the SGA from the dollar, and it is not backed up by anything.

            It would be better if the Russian Federation really started to engage in derivatives (increasing consumer demand): everything is better than squeezing geese as part of impot substitution (another company in the spirit of a scoop) and throwing tomatoes at the Turks.

    The author, but what is it that our MET is tied to the dollar?

    The coefficient characterizing the dynamics of world oil prices (KC) is determined monthly by the taxpayer independently by multiplying the average for the tax period level of Urals grade oil prices

    Kz = (C - 9) x P / 261,
    (in the edition of the Federal Law from 07.05.2004 N 33-FZ)

    where C is the average for the tax period the price level of the Urals oil grade in US dollars per barrel;
    P - the average value for the tax period of the US dollar to the ruble of the Russian Federation, established by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
    The average value for the tax period of the US dollar to the ruble of the Russian Federation established by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation is determined by the taxpayer independently as the arithmetic average of the US dollar to the ruble of the Russian Federation established by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation for all days in the corresponding tax period.

    In fact: the police (whom I know) have recently been warned by management not to spend too much money because salary delays will begin after the new year. In Eastern Siberia and Transbaikalia, public sector employees have been paid only a salary for a long time. There is no chance of improving the situation. Against this background, Plato was introduced ... are there any brains at the top? When will greediness pills run out?

      Putin does not react to this at all.
      I found on the Internet I’m quoting: “Putin does not go into all these matters, he only approves or disapproves; permits, instructs, listens and nods and it doesn’t cost him anything (except to sweat on his face with zeal to make an understanding).

      He approved the Vostochny spaceport and things went in their usual way, that is, very badly.

      He has the mind to pretend to be an administrator for all good deeds, and for bad deeds, he has the mind to not shine.
      An assistant or a confidant comes to him and asks for money for a good job, and he always gave as much as he pity - there was always enough money until recently. This is the trusted circle that managed Putin's finances.

      Putin’s finances, increasingly cut back, spread throughout the country - this is what Putin’s government was and still is, some think that this is how the country should be governed, and that Putin is a rare manager sent by fate, such a strong manager who cares about every penny "With such a manager and people grace and the country is prospering!"

    Yesterday, at an environmental summit, Putin boasted that Russia allegedly exceeded the standards for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 30% and thereby “delayed” the onset of global warming by as much as 1 year. However, if you "turn on the brain", then these words speak of a sentence for the entire Russian industry and they show the whole "depth" to which this same industry has "fallen" in recent years. Considering that no one in Russia even thought of dealing with any reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, we can state the fact that this reduction of their emission by 30% occurred "automatically" due to the fact that in the last years, some enterprises generally closed, others reduced production, and in general industry reduced production by these very 30%. Therefore, the real drop in production in Russia is 30% or more, and not the mythical "Rosstat" 2%.

    In general, the article is correct, although it lacks specificity. It is clear that the government, with the approval of Putin, is only interested in cutting the budget. As Nabiullina and Siluanov were already crying, the stabilization fund will end in 2016, and they will have nothing left to cut. Those. instead of thinking how to efficiently fill the budget (not by raising taxes, because this is not effective filling), these "figures" can only saw and pull away. Further devaluation of the ruble is in the hands of exporters, everything is correctly described here - income in foreign currency, expenses in rubles. My subjective amateurish opinion is that we will reach the presidential election (so as not to ruin the GDP rating), safely “re-elect” Putin, even hold the World Cup, but then the retirement age and the introduction of new taxes and the reduction of social programs will begin and much more interesting ...

        As an option, it may be worth voting for the Communists in the elections to the State Duma. Power is usually harmful, without competition.

    Side effects such as stress and impoverishment of the population, the team of sovereign husbands are of little concern: as independent economists tell us, only at a dollar price of at least 75 rubles, the Medvedev government can keep the 2016 budget from complete collapse.

    But what about Putin? Glory to Putin!

    What can theoretically support the ruble? In the short term, this, of course, is a cold winter in Western Europe and the US East Coast, which will cause increased demand for energy.

    Of course, of course, the Russian economy has so "risen from its knees" that it mainly depends on raw material prices.

    In the near future, three important circumstances will put pressure on the ruble: a falling economy, lower oil prices and a government policy that seeks to plug holes in the budget with a landslide devaluation.

    But what about HPP? Where does the guarantor himself look and what does he do?

    It’s time for the people to unite. Many people feel sorry for the USSR, so it is necessary to introduce into the economy an element of management from that period.
    Unite in consumer cooperatives.
    In private farms, more products can be produced. But private owners have no time to sell, and the products are perishable. It is necessary at the level of rural settlements to collectively discuss how much agricultural products can be produced. And in the city go to the advice of veterans who can help in the sale of products. In consumer cooperatives there were members, then they contributed 5 rubles each, now you can make 10000 rubles. Contributions will be enough to initially build this chain. A quick seasonal turnover will still provide some amount sufficient to organize the processing and storage of seasonal products. It is important that the first stage can be carried out in one season. In the future, you can create small enterprises for the production of not only food, but also other goods — the same clothes, shoes. In cooperatives, construction and repair teams can be included. The initial goal is to provide the population with local food products that will be better than imports (transportation within the region), will remove the dependence on politics. The main thing is to exclude admission to this network of retailers and banks, which are the main sources of price increases for products. At the next stage, regional networks should form a common network within the country, because only certain regions can supply the same sea fish. A network of cooperatives must operate under the certificate of one manufacturer, i.e. only intranet products should be delivered to the shelves of a cooperative network. A network of cooperatives should unite a common bank, but it should not be a commercial burglar, it should be a settlement center that performs operations on behalf of it and has no right to independently manage the funds of depositors accumulated in the bank.
    And most importantly, you need export earnings. The resulting currency must be used for the purchase of Russian energy carriers, then the robbery by financial speculators of that part of the population that will be included in the mass cooperative movement will come to an end.
    In general, the theoretical mechanism that I have expressed should serve the achievement of the following goals:
    1) Providing the population with food and essential goods of Russian origin
    2) Establishing fair prices for goods for manufacturers and buyers
    3) Providing employment primarily to the rural population and achieving an acceptable standard of living
    4) To exclude the influence of speculators of all stripes on the standard of living of the population
    5) To stabilize the domestic political situation,
    6) To grow a popular elite that can defend the interests of the population, not speculators.
    I do not think that what I have written is some kind of truth, but ideas worthy of comprehension by those who want to stop the mockery of the people of speculators, acting without regard to the interests of the country. It is necessary to develop some kind of protection mechanism, because no people, no country.
    In light of recent events, a tax on truckers is a huge amount of money, 25% of which will go to a private person who will repair the roads with this money and make them paid for everyone. People are forced to pay in order to pay more then and always. Fabulous riches to one loafer and poverty to the population. Somehow I don’t want to take it calmly.

        Because importing is more profitable than distributing your own, for example, food products. Where do we have our own food and commodity exchanges working on our own domestic market? Power-owning servants of the people have huge incomes from imported products and, of course, they don’t leave the budget without contributions to in the form of import customs duties and sales taxes, and now also transport from long-distance fighting. But you can’t cut off the domestic producer with preferential loans and wool, because they are fine-fleeced.

        Yes, you are the only one who read my comment. We are talking about the fact that it is necessary to produce food locally. It will be healthier than the one that was transported for months, produced in no one knows where, when growing pesticides and other prohibited substances were used, there is no control over all this. People eat the devil knows that, is sick and poisoned. Therefore, the idea expressed by me can be realized. Such products will not be more expensive than those that were brought from afar, passed through the hands of dealers, the price of which includes interest on bank loans. People are more willing to buy domestic, local, but in the same market under the guise of a local they sell mainly imported. Therefore, I say that there should be a cooperative-producers, a network of cooperatives-the exchange of goods between cooperatives as a guarantee of the receipt of imported chemicals. And most importantly, security will appear - the price of the goods will not depend on dealers, there will be demand. I can’t grow vegetables myself, but I would prefer to buy local, and I would pay a fee to join a cooperative. And most importantly, such a movement would reliably provide food for the population with low incomes. I think everyone understands that for the current business, no import substitution is possible.

    Crisis, sanctions, embargoes, falling energy prices and other delights of the moment lead to a fall in the ruble, rising inflation, and a higher cost of living for the population. There is a nuance such as bringing Russia to a single European pricing policy. And not only in Russia, Kazakhstan, for example. It’s just that for all this, the population’s profitability is not taken into account, and media prices are increasingly drawn in euros, advertising of goods on TV. So can we formally become part of the EU and pursue a policy of such “soft” integration?

    Well, suppose not all former members of the CPSU. But yes, yes: a huge percentage of current leaders are the former nomenclature of the CPSU Central Committee. And to vote for the Communist Party (like anyone else) is pointless. Firstly, Zyuganovites express the interests of the people only as long as they are in opposition. I doubt very much that anyone will allow them to nationalize the economy bloodlessly, only legislative measures. And we end up with either the next "national traitors" who, they say, promised not to do it, or the second of October of the 93rd, because the current communist is not like a Bolshevik of a hundred years ago: he has neither a Mauser, nor an armored car, neither Latvian riflemen nor sailor Zheleznyak.
