An interesting article about Khazin views. I must say this is similar to my views as for govt. He goes further and since he knows the staff. Hazin: the purses of Russia's liberals can start shaking very soon...
Famous Russian economist and publicist Mikhail Khazin told on his personal website on the web what awaits the liberals of Russia in the coming years.
The expert writes that the Liberals for 25 years had a serious advantage - they controlled the process of redistribution of property in the Russian Federation. However, in recent years, the liberals have weakened control and were forced to share their right. But the most significant event was the formation of a new government in Russia, as political leaders of the liberal level could not go to the governing bodies.
Of course, not everyone left their posts. Prikhodko and other politicians remained. However, the circle of decisions taken by them has sharply narrowed. As a result, it turns out that the entire system of redistribution of property, which the liberals created over the years, "hung in the air." According to Khazin in the history of Russia there was a very important event that can be met rarely: a very influential group for a short time lost a significant part of its influence and capabilities. Now the consequences are interesting.
Mikhail Khazin is sure that other Russian power groups, offended by the liberals, will begin to "pierce" the assets that were previously controlled by the liberal wing. Those who recently lost assets or are still under the pressure of raider seizures may try to appeal to representatives of other groups to conclude deals. And a significant number of such proposals will be perceived quite positively.
The economist suggested that in the near future a liberal team would be struck. They can deliberately form a "dirty business" in the spirit of liberals, thoroughly investigate it and show it to the general public. For example, such may be the case for attempts to raid the capture of the company "TogliattiAzot". The main owner of the company at the moment is outside the country, as criminal cases are brought against him. If the abuse of the liberal team is proven, then a whole series of similar cases will arise. And then the purses of the liberals will start shaking very soon and very much. The group will begin to lose money, assets and influence....
Nice theory, too bad that it has no empirical evidence to back it.
Goebbels' newspapers also have articles that Stalin left Russia andis gonna capitulate
Where is this evidence that the sanctions on Russia are so painful that
Russia will capitulate? The sanctions are a Godsend. They have destroyed the last vestiges of Yeltsin's distorted capitalism where Russia
became an importer of food and various other vital goods. Now it produces these products for itself on its own soil. Please bring more
sanctions. If Russian companies are cut off from foreign banking completely we will see the CBR purged of Nabiullina and here monetarist
Also, Russia does not depend on exports. This is part of the "Russia is a single commodity banana republic" myth/propaganda being
peddled by NATO.
No banana republic of course but every country needs to export to keep fixed costs down. Some like Germany or Japan, Korea mostly depend on export.
Russian can of course survive without export only by internal resources but products might not be competitive outside.
The good thing is that China alone as trading partner is enough to keep industry running on competitive level. Not to mention + India, Vietnam, Turkey and Iran
