What did you do? Somehow no victorious economic mood is felt among the people, in addition, more and more we have to tighten the belt, and the prospects are not encouraging. We are not happy, but our government is in excellent mood. What's the matter? But…
We have a clear increase in production. And the most modern and high-tech. It is not even clear, but the people are so gloomy, after all, is this really a victory? There are reasons. Well, we are with you in the country (I looked out the window in the morning, checked) capitalism. And the growth of production was definitely positive only under socialism.
We all remember (and right now many are confronted) what it is - a lot of goods in a warehouse that no one can buy. At first it seems to you that everything is in order, then the problems are approaching, and then you are a beggar, you are pursued by debts, and you also have to take away somewhere a mountain of garbage, which you have thrown out of stock due to rent debts. Your product perfectly served as a noose for your neck.
How so? That's how. By itself, production under capitalism is neither bad nor good. Only one factor is real. And this factor is a steady effective demand! If it is, everything else appears by itself, including production. And where does this engine of the economy come from, this growth factor, this determining condition, on which everything is based, absolutely everything?
There is only one source. One. On the entire planet. All incomes and expenses, even payment for resources extracted from the depths, even defense expenses, all grow from a single root. And this root is household income. If households have money to pay for their expenses, then the whole economy works. Nope - everything stops. There is no way out of this simple dilemma.
And what did our great economists, our captains of the economy, our politicians and our rich do? And they bought far beyond the boundaries of modular plants. And now they are running, rejoicing ... Merry fellows. These plants are highly automated. Do you understand? Products we now shaft. But the salary is paid to ten people where five thousand used to work. Salary is not even too high, and justified. Why pay a lot to the operator, if it does not require almost any knowledge?
Here are just the rest of the people get nothing, they were expelled from work. They are not needed. The simple truth does not reach our great economists: there is no one to sell now what they have produced on their automatic modules. And the situation is rapidly deteriorating, there is no work, which means there is no money, no household income! The situation is slightly smoothed by the fact that people scored loans. But non-payment is already biting the banks for the heels.
Alas, the country has really rebuilt its economy. Really achieved production growth. Kudrin is crying from happiness ... But this “victory” in which, as we have long been known, there was no place for people, very soon, literally in a matter of months, it threatens us with a complete and final collapse. Right under the victorious cries of the authorities, who do not understand what they have done ...
