Paul Craig Roberts: Will Russia Withstand Washington's Economic Attack? (Institute for Political Economy, USA)



Recently, Deputy US State Department spokesman Mark Toner reminded US companies on the economic and reputational risks associated with doing business with Russia as long as it does not return the Crimea pro-American puppet regime in Kiev.

My point of view is significantly different from the views of the State Department. The only risk that the corporation may face due to their work in Russia comes from the US government. Washington will certainly punish US companies, if they are not part of the corporate oligarchy that has immunity against any sanctions.

If there is a risk and in fact, it is a risk for Russia. For example, if a Russian company doing business with the US partner, this American company somehow receives information about Russia, which is provided by the CIA.

When the Russian central bank sells government bonds, wall street, acting in the interests of the CIA, may acquire bonds and then dump them inappropriately while to harm Russia by reducing their cost. This price cut will then be used as a means of propaganda, according to which Russia is failing and its bonds are worthless.

When the Russian government allows the ruble to trade on the international foreign exchange market, it actually provides an opportunity for Washington to speculate against the Russian currency and seek to reduce its value. This exchange rate depreciation will then be used by propaganda in an attempt to prove that the ruble is a depreciating currency.

When the Russian government to attract foreign investment, Washington is able to withdraw money from Russia at the wrong time and thus destabilize the Russian economy.

The Russian government should forget about all of Washington's sanctions. In essence, these sanctions have had enormous Russian assistance. Prior to their introduction, Washington used the integration of Russia into the global economy as a third world country, supplier of raw materials and importer of high-tech products. It is in this way controlled Russia Washington. As a result of economic sanctions, Russia has become more self-sufficient and focused on production for their own use, and not for the needs of the West.

Instead of worrying about Washington’s sanctions, the Russian government should impose its own sanctions on Russian companies doing business with the United States. Carrying out their activities abroad, American corporations act as agents of the CIA, performing tasks within the framework of Washington’s policy aimed at destabilizing Russia and China.

To see this, you should look at history Latin America. All reformist governments in those Latin American countries where the US business presence took place were, sooner or later, destabilized and overthrown.

Russia's goal should be complete separation from the West, and not integration into Western structures. Such integration means for it to become a vassal state. Russia, China and India together make up the largest potential market on the planet and occupy the largest territory. These three countries should focus on integrating their economies and isolating them from the West.

Modern monetary theory associated with such prominent economists as Maykl Hadson, makes it clear that countries have to finance their own infrastructure and to carry out any productive investment to create money, not debt. Using the public debt simply allows private banks to create money, and that debt servicing accounts paying interest to banks, which depletes the purchasing power of the economy.

If Russia will allow the West to control its economy, it could give Washington control including over its armed forces. Unfortunately for the government and the Russian people, the Central Bank and neoliberal economists are too naive and trusting, to be able to defend Russia from the economic destabilization. As long as Russia does not find much more qualified economic advisers, the future of the country remains vague and uncertain.

            And you thought it would be so easy to butt for the first place in the world, within the framework of the weapons proposed by the West, economic and informational? Naive people and stupid! Yes, at least get the disadvantages))) To abandon an open economy is the same as giving up fighting, struggles, frightening, fleeing, sieging, again isolating, which the West is seeking to deprive Russia of foreign markets and development. And it may still be too early to give up without a fight, we always have time to leave for a defensive defense. Moreover, in today's situation, this means leaving in even worse conditions than it was in the USSR, the USSR at least had a gigantic market and resources in the 15 of the Union republics and the CMEA camp. I repeat for the umpteenth time, as I am sure that Russia will not be destroyed by the United States and the West, not by the West American military prodigies, not by the government’s economic, temporarily necessary government bloc, and not by far distant, agitated, emotional patriots, as has already been repeatedly stories...

          All this financial bloc (Kudrin, Gref, Nabiullina) must be replaced a long time ago by people who support Russia, and not the USA! Nationalize the Central Bank and get out of the control of the US Federal Reserve! It is necessary that our finances work for the Russian economy, and not strengthen the economies of the West and the USA.
          For this, the political will of the President and the Prime Minister is needed. I don’t see this yet.

        Full isolation will not work, but it was quite possible to suspend WTO membership for 5 years. Moreover, we won nothing from this membership. We need a targeted development program for the country, and the first step should be the construction of our own machine-tool industry, which was safely the first to be destroyed in the 90s. In parallel, to establish the design and production of lines of small and medium capacity with maximum robotization of processes. The first consumers could be agricultural producers, fast foods, polymer processing (plastic molding), builders (3D printers), the production of spare parts, the production of shoes, construction tools, household appliances and other things. Only by developing robotic systems we have a chance to catch up and fit into global trends.

    Here, I completely agree with Paul Craig Roberts regarding our government and the Central Bank: - while the head of the Central Bank and the economic bloc of the government are the neoliberals of the Gaidar-Chubais spill, no positive changes in the economy and social sphere can be expected.
    One can only hope that the new composition of the State Duma will not support the course of the Medvedev government and will require the President to resign this government and radically change the neoliberal economic policy.

And the production in Malaysia, and even in Vietnam, but to change the controllers (and this we can, the Chinese will only be happy to help) and so is smuggling. So the same deliveries of everything, only US claims are not accepted! So the sanctions are ready for sashikam.

Unfortunately for the government and the Russian people, the Central Bank and neoliberal economists are too naive and trusting, to be able to defend Russia from the economic destabilization.

They can’t buy a diesel engine, electronics, but this is all bullshit. So someone is lobbying directly for this diesel engine, machine, the company.

    "Uncontrolled communist slavery", "ineffective economy" - they went straight from the trump cards, hmm. How old are you? Have you read the history of Solzhenitsyn and Rezun?

    "Isolate your ideological enemy - the United States" - The United States is not our ideological enemy. To begin with, for this we need to have this very ideology, but it is absent from the word at all, even in the constitution it is spelled out, yeah. Here in the States there is, although not explicitly. And in our country, in essence, just following in the wake of the ideology of the States (just do not talk about the "national idea of ​​patriotism" and Orthodoxy, these are not ideologies by definition). And we have a conflict with them solely on the basis of dough, resources and geopolitics. And there is no other background. The Union had an ideological conflict with the United States, and the loot was there for the second time. And we have capitalism now, and under it everything is just like that, except for the dough.

    All this is good that the author wrote there, but you still need to stop believing in fairy tales and finally understand that the Russian Federation is controlled by large financial capital, it has no homeland, the word patriotism is not familiar there and the country's interests are secondary to it. He does not care who will lead the country, it is important how much will be the rate of profit. Doubters can look at our blue neighbors from the yellow house. Capital there feels great. For him, all this turmoil and civil war is not cold, not hot, but rather an occasion to fish in troubled waters. Here in Russia it will be the same if the government continues to take into account only the interests of big capital. Capital doesn’t care who will be up there, GDP, Medvedev, Kudrin, Navalny. The latter will be even better, because it has no brakes at all.

He described our condition well, but Russia alone will decide with whom to develop, if the West agrees and will supply technology, place production on our site territories (not to be confused with assembly, namely, the full technological cycle), so why don’t we cooperate with them, the same with China and India, any other country. Please note that the article came out just when the EU thinks (and on my own, without the United States) on the lifting of sanctions. Personally, I am for a very cautious approach to lifting the sanctions, to disassemble each item, each company and be sure to benefit, if you want by surgical means, by agricultural means not any cancellations, on the contrary tightening

    Will it resist? A belated question, I have already resisted. For the third year they have been pressing sanctions, oil has been kept at a low level, burying its own shale revolution, falling out with the Saudis and cheating on an extra million barrels of production every day (not to mention the murky "oil reserves in the United States." The European Union in general, France and Germany in particular They were unable to win over China to their side, after which they declared it the main threat along with Russia and ISIS.
    How many were thrown into the fifth and sixth columns, how they both discredited themselves both inside the country and abroad, but still there is no German. The "Putin regime" is not falling, Russia is not returning its Crimea, Europe is starting to worry seriously, Asia as a whole has scored on these sanctions ...
    But only the United States, distracted by the game of elections and putting together anti-Russian and anti-Chinese fronts (there is also an anti-Assad front - but there are seams there), is rapidly approaching the collapse of its financial system, and pension funds for sure - and no one will seem little, but a saving (for America) war in Europe it will not be possible to untie for free this time, Europe is NATO (through the efforts of the Americans, almost completely), and NATO is the United States, and this means that the main NATO country is the first to risk and taste all the "goodies".
    Accordingly, the States themselves will have to rake their economic and political jamb over the dollar bubble, and the collapse of the United States as a single state is the most humane way to solve it.

    paradoxically, but today Russia has a tremendous chance to survive any economic attacks. As an airship, Russia has ballast in the form of a liberal government and other comprador economists. Dropping this ballast is also no problem, because there are economists and patriots of Russia. It all depends on the willful decision of a single person. That's how he gets tired of playing liberals. So our airship and trample. But the Americans with geyropetsami no such ballast. They already have nothing to dump. And they cannot even develop stolen goods.
