    After reading about the "Great Reset", I think it mostly about industrialized countries to deindustrialize and for poor countries to stay that way.

    I hope/wish Russia does not follow this path, Russia is slowly building up all the capabilities that she has, while the western countries are slowly destroying themselves.

    What are your guys opinions about this?

    Unless it ends in nuked destruction, either by accident of cunning plan, Russia is carefully positioning itself to come out on top.

    It has by far the least debt of any developed economy, significant gold reserves, both in and out of the ground and, at a push, self sufficiency in food. Finally it is well enough armed to be able to defend itself from the jealous hordes.

    Yes, Russia's future prospects are mostly good, the only issue is it's Birth Rates and Migration policies.

    Recently there have been further calls to open Russia's borders more, i worry that Russia will go the way of Britain and Sweden all because of this birth rates excuse.

    I would worry about birth rates when it actually becomes a problem... otherwise it is just a smoke screen.

    Once you get quality of life high... where only one parent in the family needs to work to provide a comfortable life where you can own your own house and two or more cars and go on a good holiday every year... and not worry you might get kicked out of your apartment if you lose your job...

    A society where business recognises it earns money because its workers do a good job and spend more time improving productivity and conditions for those workers than pandering to share holders demands for high returns.

    Most share holders are ass holes... I know quite a few who were showing off because the shares they bought for a dollar and now worth $50... and then I see them again and they are complaining they didn't sell because now those shares are only worth $35 dollars and the world is ending... the people who paid $50 dollars a share and now they are worth $35 might complain but honestly the only reason they bought the shares was to make money with no effort... they saw the value go up and were too late to benefit... the shares might really be worth $20 so buying for $1 was a bargain, but the people buying at $50 are idiots...

    I think shares in companies are stupid... considering the amount of dividends they pay out on them they would be better not selling off shares in their company and just give the workers automatic shares so they benefit when the business does well...

    There have already been calls from within Russia to further open their borders Garry, so the worry is real.

    And you already know my thought on Women, their vote, Welfare and Fertility decline.
    Idealism will never win over cold hard numbers.
    The same way socialism can't win over economics.

    And no, the quality of life will never reach that high, since women saturate the labor market, ergo wages decline.

    I believe that government replacement was because the old government was not getting things done.

    But before the new government was able to start, this whole fuckin pandemic happened.

    I think the Russian population will go up after all this crap.

    This has been one of my pet peeves for decades.   The idiots who run marketing departments and their bosses only worry about profit margins
    and costs.   So their ideal operating regime, whether they realize this or not, is to have zero costs but still rake in the cash from sales.   That
    is, they want an infinite profit margin.    So you see these criminally negligent clowns downsize their workforce and cut costs that directly
    result in the degradation of quality of their products.   Offshoring is part of this insanity as well since a factory sweatshop beats well paid workers
    any day to these pinheads.    Of course, by reducing the workforce and also paying it less they reduce the demand for their goods and services.  
    This a full economy effect and not just one company.    And it defeats all the profit margin chasing in the long run.

    What we have been seeing since the 1980s has been the catabolic "rightsizing" and "downsizing" of the advanced western economies.   This
    has resulted in the decline of the middle class.   BTW, official statistics lie on this point.   Even if there is some admission of decline since the
    1970s, the scale is grossly understated.   The USA has transitioned from a regime where one earner could afford to buy a house and have
    a couple of cars and provide for the education of his children (this matters for the USA where tuition is not free), to a regime where even
    two earners cannot make ends meet.   But the statistics pretend that the second earner is almost fully offsetting the decline in income of
    the first earner.    This is total BS.   The costs have gone through the roof since the 1970s.   This applies to house prices in particular.
    In Toronto, Canada, one could buy a nice house in a nice part of town for about $70,000 (Canadian dollars) around 1978.   By the 1990s
    this same house was approaching $700,000.   But the incomes did not increase by a factor of 10 over the same period.    In Canada the
    tuition costs have skyrocketed for post-secondary education and they have increased substantially above inflation in the USA as well.

    But offshoring has really done in the middle class in North America.   Good paying jobs have disappeared to replaced by lower paying
    service sector jobs.   This is not a sustainable model.   If the corporate bosses had any plan, then it was to replace the lost consumers
    in the developed world with hundreds of millions of new consumers in China, India and elsewhere.   So throwing the US workforce under
    the bus would not mean bankruptcy but more filthy lucre.   But here is where we come to the topic of this thread.   Something went
    very wrong with the plan.   It appears that the clowns just assumed that they would own those new markets but it was Chinese and
    Indian companies that dominated instead.   That would vastly reduce the income stream from the new consumers.   So throwing US
    and other developed world consumers under the bus is not working out.

    Exactly... the best product is the cheapest product.... they expect high quality and durability but they don't want to pay anything for that, so you end up with cheap materials and a third world workforce putting it together with no craftsmanship or skill or pride in their work... their bosses don't care if they make the prettiest product... what they care about is how many completed products you get out the door a day and doing well one week counts for nothing if the next week you are not feeling well... the worst companies post or print out production or sales figures from last year and think they are encouraging their workers by saying they need to do 5% better in this period... unless they find a way to solve problems that are slowing things down dramatic improvements in productivity simply can't continue year in and year out without fraud... and that is what it often has to come down to...

    A Russian ex-pat living in Florida runs this channel and comments on life in America. He has a balanced approach.

    In the video above he discusses the economic situation in the USA. The US GDP contracted by about 33% in the
    second quarter of 2020 on an annualized basis. But if you look at the stock markets you would think that everything
    was rosy. If ever there was clear proof that US and other stock markets are a total fraud that has no connection
    to the real or imaginary economy, then this is it.

    In order for the stock markets to be this detached from reality, they must be totally manipulated. No way that
    some random herd of investors will selectively ignore various indicators in exactly the same way at exactly the same
    time.

    Apple now has a capitalization of almost 2 trillion dollars even though the US GDP collapsed by 33% in the 2nd quarter.
    All the yanqui sycophants are dancing the victory dance touting the first piece of news but utterly ignoring the second.

    The US and fellow traveler stock markets are a sham. They are one of the pools for the Fed printing presses of Pancho Villa
    greenbacks. Stock buying reflects media hype and the low grade investment ability of most stock market participants who
    are small time.

    I know day traders and I am told that the herd of small time investors does not act
    smart. They do not buy low and sell high as is the common belief. These small time stock market players are easily
    panicked and end up mostly buying high and selling low. They do not weather stock drops well. These small time
    players are also easily herded by media and analysts. These analysts are basically paid shills. I recall one such
    clown called Ashok Kumar who would systematically denigrate AMD and extol Intel. History exposes such analysts.
    But they never stop.

    At the end of the day market capitalization is illusory. If Apple wanted to turn its stocks into 1.9 trillion dollars it
    would never get that amount since the price per stock would implode. Demand and supply and all that Jazz. Yet
    somehow it has become accepted to think that stock capitalization is real. The only reality is that stocks have
    a price on small trade volumes. Apple never actually had its total stock pool paid for with 1.9 trillion dollars. Most
    of that gain is speculative inflation. But this inflation becomes deflation as soon as any effort is made to realize
    that illusory capital.
