Mikhail Leontyev. Big American hole 3

"History teaches that she teaches no one. Everything has already happened. History is cyclical, and the history of the economy - even more so. We are not engaged in prophecy, we simply state what is happening. "

The first channel represents the third part of Mikhail Leontiev’s X-American Hole-4 3-series documentary.

The predictions from 2010's Big American Hole 2 come true. It is worth reminding them in brief. How and why did the economic crisis that broke out in the USA in September of the 2008 develop? How and why, after the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers - one of the four great American investment banks - was the entire global financial system bankrupt? How and why the crisis of private banks and corporations turned out to be a public debt crisis. Those that can not be paid in principle?

A reminder is necessary to understand the fundamental causes and patterns of all economic crises. About this in the third series of the film. The third and fourth series on the basis of the theory of change of economic structures demonstrate that the current crisis is systemic and is overcome by the change of economic and technological epochs. In order to understand where all this is moving, you need to look like one system: way of life, civilization replaces the other. The current economic order - the American era - is coming to an end. And ends disastrously. In this, in fact, the main misfortune, if we talk about the change of economic epochs. Progress is not necessarily good. And if good, then certainly not for everyone. The benefits of progress enjoy nice. Everyone, except those who paid for these fruits.

The crisis is half the trouble. The real trouble is a way out of the crisis.

      Despite the caustic sarcasm in relation to Western "values", his programs are a deep analysis of the topic that is revealed to the viewer. A very intelligent man and a patriot. It would be nice that our leadership sometimes openly upset the presumptuous bourgeois, otherwise they think too much good about their "correctness".

        Rusich, dear, I personally didn’t notice that our bourgeois were obviously thinking too much about themselves. When I see their physias, I notice on their brows a "deep concern" about maintaining their position. Hodor's example is an example to many! And Deripaska got hit in the face, and Luzhkov's son-in-law got acquainted with the situation of the prison, and Abramovich, having significant assets in the Russian economy "from the kindness of his heart" is forced to invest in certain projects in Russia! And without this they may find themselves in the position of Luzhka or, even more terrible, Hodor! And about the article - Leontyev very succinctly and intelligibly expressed what you and I, in principle, see from the Internet and from discussions that often throw up very sensible thoughts.

          Listening to Leontyev's ear is pleasant, of course, but ... very much reminds Comrade Dorenko ... Not that, of course, the pressure, and the rigidity is almost not the same, but ... I mean that ... "strings" can be The same. The channel is the same!

    Actually, this is not new. Anyone who is more or less intelligent can understand
    US finances are seriously ill. The issue of the death of this system is in time. But a different pattern appeared, the closer the end of THIS SYSTEM, the more different conflicts on the planet Earth (color revolutions, wars in the name of democracy, bankruptcy of states (GREECE), etc.) Nothing good is not to be expected from this.

      These conflicts are a way for the United States to turn the attention of the world from itself and, in addition, burn part of its debts in these wars and stimulate its economy by increasing the activity of the military-industrial complex. So there is nothing surprising here.

    in fact, everyone criticizes this system, but there is no alternative yet in the foreseeable future. it’s bad, but they conferred and decided that they choose the least of two evils. Here and everyone pays tribute to the United States. Who thinks that the states have a headache, that they should I’m half a trillion China, then I’m mistaken. If the United States system crashes, it means that the states should automatically depreciate, so China has to do everything possible so that this debt has a certain price and support the state economy. And I owe China 10% of the states GDP and the sum is not so terrible for them. basically this debt is an internal state debt and the land did not turn over under the states because of this

      Very competent comment. To continue: the gold standard was canceled not because the US wanted to become the rulers of the world, but because gold as an asset cannot act as money and cannot provide the growing need for money, even if we exclude the transfer of inflation to the stock markets. So they came up with a system of money on trust. We print money as much as we are trusted. The US trusts everything. As a minimum, for more than a hundred years, there are no problems with issuing debt. Well, now you have to trust, otherwise the debts may depreciate and China, Japan and Russia will lose their reserve funds.

      There is no other system yet. And this system can also work, if you still allow systemic crises that will redistribute values ​​and prevent bubbles such as US government bonds. What do we see? The crisis is delayed and delayed.

    and despite all these soap bubbles, the states remain a country that is not very dependent on global shocks as it is a self-sufficient country which, if something happens, can provide itself with everything it needs without problems. And if you really need to see a lot, you need to learn from them.
    as the saying goes, the head hurts only not in the states. that is, all the others got into trouble. and if you believe the blind man’s movie, it’s the distance between the anus and the vagina.

      In general, this is great, of course. America buys oil from us for a non-cash dollar, and we buy their debentures for this non-cash one. we exchange raw materials for a small bundle of paper. This had to be invented. And all this is provided by the US Army and Navy. But we have something to fear. Ergo-in the government are either thieves who get a blunt kickback, or just enemies.

    In general, I see here a lot of supporters of Leontief’s concepts of debunking the United States and imperialist conspiracies, and does anybody from the political establishment listen to Leontiev’s opinion ?!
    1. serge
      serge 29 December 2011 21: 25
      Well, since Leontiev has been stuck in a box for so many years, then if they don’t listen,
      then at least recognize the existence of his theories as real.

    The crisis is half the trouble. The real trouble is a way out of the crisis.

    The way out will be on the death of the economy, half of the world, and then, as from the ashes, a new US economy will emerge.

    In America, financially speculative capital initially ruled, and the economy and standard of living was maintained by robbery and subjugation of other peoples.
    But you can’t hold the whole world in your pocket, and without it, the inflated condom of the speculative Pindos economy will inevitably burst and the entire world will inevitably end up rolling its vile contents

    In fact, our liberal journalists simply hate Leoniev, talk about him as a custom-made Kremlin journalist, mention his name only with a grin, say that supposedly decent people don’t greet him, etc. I think this just speaks of his decency.

    He should be respected, only because of the recruitment of his foes - an official ban on entering Lithuania, litigation with the couple Yushchenko and, as a result, a ban on entering Ukraine (canceled in 2007), and Chernomyrdin - a patriot, at that time, officially declared that Leontiev is sick.

    The most interesting thing is if you look at series 4 and analyze the question of an imminent fall in oil prices due to cheaper shale oil production .... and read the news ... Only 3 days ago, Comrade Putin announced a new INDUSTRIALIZATION of the country. According to the announced plans, it is planned to invest 42 trillion in infrastructure, energy and industry. rub for 3-4 years. This amount is equal to the country's annual GDP. That is, the volume of investments in the region of 25-30% of GDP per year.
    Of course, much echoes the harmonious THEORY outlined in this film.
    Because ... if oil prices really fall in the next 5 years to $ 30, then our export pipe will become just a loss-making project ... and not a gold mine ...
    We’ll wait and see of course ...
