    Most fun is that prices always increase artificially in addition to seasons (seasons are especially sharp in capitalist states where they buy something for 10 rub/kg, store for 6 months with expenses around 5-6 rub/kg and sell for 70 rub/kg ), to make potato more expensive large retailers stop to supply Egypt or any similar already expensive foreign potatoes. But stopping allow to start selling inferior product at 200-400% margin. Same is true for lot of other stuff.

  • The number of open brokerage accounts by the end of 2021 may reach 15 million, Chairman of the Board of the Moscow Exchange Yuri Denisov. In the long term, all economically active Russians can open an account on the exchange.

    Biggest reason is that people want to get government bonds that give higher profit compared to bank deposit.

  • The Russian government has supplemented the list of products that are prohibited from importing from the territory of Ukraine by a decree of December 29, 2018. This was reported on Friday, July 2, on the portal of legal information.

    By the decree of June 28, 2021, the list of prohibited products included sugar, pasta, mayonnaise, ketchup, mixed spices, soups and ready-made broths, mineral water, soft drinks, ice cream, muesli and a number of other products.

    In addition, the import of various types of timber, boxes, boxes, packing cages, drums, pallets, boxes and other loading boards is limited.

    Certainly new price hikes are coming, and local "patriotic" manufacturers and resellers will be able to buy many extra yachts this season, this is for sure.

  • Russians who work only remotely, by July 2021, there were 11%.

    Another 6% of respondents reported that they work in a hybrid format - that is, they alternate work from home with an office. 83% said they work offline.

    In March 2021, there were three times more people working remotely - 30%. Another 15% worked in a hybrid format.

    36% of respondents working remotely, in whole or in part, said that their companies are planning to introduce a hybrid work format. 27% of respondents indicated that employees in their company will continue to work remotely in the future.

    More than half (51%) of those who work remotely or may not come to the office said they would like to keep the opportunity to work this way forever.

    Huge part of present COVID is due to capitalists and especially mid level management who pushed people into offline mode without any need.

    I know at least 2 totally scared managers as in 2020 they discovered that they are not required for work to be going at all most of them time, this is why they tripled number of meetings and 5x increased number of paper work. Now they just turned into parasites.

  • The production of medicines in Russia in physical terms in the first five months of 2021 decreased by 9.2%.

    At the same time, analysts note that, in monetary terms, the shipments of drug manufacturers, on the contrary, increased by 25.9% and amounted to 239.1 billion rubles in the first five months.

    Just horrible criminals who steal from society and do not care.

  • Everything here is just "perfect":

    Salt mining enterprises are faced with a shortage of gondola cars, which may threaten to disrupt supplies.

    At the end of March, there were 577.7 thousand open wagons on the railway network, while the market demand was 430-450 thousand units. However, over the past three months, rates for the provision of rolling stock have increased by 40%. Owners and operators have sharply reduced the supply of free parks for loading.

    The owners of the wagons guarantee the supply of salt-mining enterprises in quantities that are almost two times less than they need. This has already led to the halt of a number of sites and threatens the fulfillment of obligations to counterparties, up to the disruption of the supply of salt to food enterprises, the appeal says.

    A significant increase in rates for gondola cars will lead to an increase in the price of salt for consumers, since logistics takes a significant share in the cost of the product.

    Watch how bunch of greedy criminals act.

  • Capital leak from Mordor chart, shows that 2008 even had been aimed at


    Just numbers are way off, recently it had been independent research made by Netherlands guys who showed that only via offshores and similar channels Russian ruling class returns to owners at least 600 billions USD per year and sometimes it reaches 850 billions USD like in 2020.

    Scheme is old and tried, invented by famous Baibakov traitor in 1960x. They sell goods for like $200 per 100 kg, but in reality they get back around $45 per kg, and $155 is being left in the buyer bank, $5-10 of them will be later channeled to clerks and top managers - to their private accounts. All else will remain formally on same account, for infinite amount of time. In reality this money never existed. They just sold goods for 1/4 of price they declared. Normal rates are from 1/3 to 1/2 of real price (oil and metals), sometimes this reach even 70-75% of real price (some food and such). China is using same scheme but it is better looking (you can have your "money" in some government bonds stuff with 30-50 years expiration).

  • More on real Mordor inflation

    1. Over the past 10 years (ie 2010-2019), the Russian economy has grown by 9%. This means that the average annual economic growth rate for this period was less than 0.9%. And this despite the fact that the average annual growth rate of the world economy in the last decade amounted to almost 3%. During these years, Russia demonstrated the worst (with the exception of Venezuela) economic dynamics among the countries of the world with a high share of the raw materials sector in the structure of GDP.

    2. The structure of the population's demand remains extremely primitive. Almost a third of all income Russian citizens spend on food, the level of compulsory payments (debt payments, taxes and fees) is constantly growing.

    3. The share of wages in the structure of product prices has remained stable over the past 15 years, while the quality of jobs and wages are at an extremely low level. The median salary does not exceed 35 thousand rubles. More than 25% of the employed (excluding migrants) work in low-productivity jobs and perform the functions of low-skilled workers. More than 22% of those employed in industrial enterprises are used ineffectively. With such reserves of growth in labor productivity, it is at least strange to talk about a shortage of labor resources. The low level of wages in the existing structure of the Russian economy is becoming the main brake on economic growth and qualitative changes in the social sphere.

    4. Used in 2014-2019. the system of measures of monetary and budgetary policy led to the outstripping growth of prices for raw materials in the domestic market. The tax system has lost its harmony and requires almost constant "manual" adjustment. In the economy, there was a redistribution of resources from producers in favor of the financial sector. Every year in the financial sector (business, government and population) accumulated about 10% of the GDP of "excess" financial resources that did not work for economic growth.

    5. At present, the issues related to the economic (price) availability of energy within the country are quite acute. For the period 2015-2020 it decreased: for gasoline - by 20%, electricity - by 14%, falling back to the indicators of ten years ago. As a result, there is a long stagnation in domestic demand for energy, which limits the growth of the quality of life of Russians.

    6. Assuming that in 2020-2040. the average annual growth rate of labor productivity in the Russian economy will be equal to 1% (for comparison, in 2002-2018 it was equal to 3.2%), the real effective dependency ratio (from all dependents) will be 99.6% in relation to 2018 Thus, in the long term, even relatively low growth rates of labor productivity will be enough to maintain the current level of real demographic burden on the economy.

    7. The average level of capacity utilization in the Russian economy before the 2020 crisis was about 65%. In the extractive industry and export-oriented sectors, the utilization is about 80%. Manufacturing enterprises focused on domestic consumer demand have less than 65%, and about 40% in the investment complex. The share of investments aimed at reconstruction and modernization, since 2008, has decreased from 21% to 15%, the share of completely worn-out equipment, respectively, increased from 13% to 18.7%. Industries focused on the domestic market, the bulk of whose revenues are denominated in rubles, are forced to either reduce investments or purchase cheaper and less efficient equipment.

    8. The inclusion of the Russian economy in the world economy in the early 1990s, the liberalization of foreign economic activity and domestic prices, the rejection of industrial policy led to the fact that Russia's specialization in the supply of hydrocarbons and other primary raw materials has significantly increased. If from 1995 to 2013 the share of hydrocarbons in world exports increased by 10 percent. (mainly under the influence of the outstripping growth in prices for hydrocarbons), in Russia over the same period the share of hydrocarbons in exports increased by 28%. p. (from 43 to 71%). At the same time, the share of high-tech products in Russian exports in 2017 amounted to 2.5% (as in 1995), compared with 20% on average throughout the world. The Russian economy is rather weakly involved in the production chains of the largest countries. For example, in response to an increase in output in the US economy by $ 1,000, direct global demand for Russian products is growing by only $ 3.5, slightly higher than this figure with a similar growth in China - $ 9.8. Even with an increase in production in Germany (Russia's largest trading partner) this figure does not exceed $ 20. This means that in the current model of world distribution of production, Russia receives very modest benefits from the expansion of the world economy and trade.

    9. International comparisons show that income differentiation in Russia is extremely high. Over the past decade, it has only increased, despite the fact that the real level of average income has increased slightly. According to the results of the survey of household budgets of Rosstat in 2018, the average per capita nominal monthly cash income was 23.6 thousand rubles, while in 2008 it was 10.2 thousand rubles. At the same time, the level of consumer prices in 2008-2018. increased by 2.1 times. In real terms, the increase in average per capita money income over this period amounted to only 11.9%, moreover, in 2015-2018. his level has not changed.

    10. The problem is that the growth in real wages observed by statistics is predominantly concentrated in the upper income groups of the population, where the level of needs is relatively saturated - therefore, their expenditures, despite the general decrease, have hardly decreased. This leads to the fact that the income growth of the wealthiest groups of the population is largely transformed into savings or purchases of imported products, which reduces the contribution of consumer demand to GDP growth. The key factor in the intensification of the contribution of consumer demand to the acceleration of economic dynamics is the growth of income and demand of low-income groups of the population.

    11. Bringing the wages of certain categories of workers to the established level was accompanied by a reduction in the number of employees. So, in almost all regions in 2017-2018. the number of junior medical personnel was decreasing, and the reduction in two years is calculated several times. In Moscow, the reduction in this category was 3 times, in the Arkhangelsk region - 3.9 times, in the Perm Territory - 4.5 times, in the Republic of Bashkortostan - more than 5 times. A similar situation has developed with respect to the category of social workers, whose number, for example, in Mordovia has decreased by 6.4 times, while in the Perm Territory this category of workers has practically disappeared. The decline in the number of employed people was accompanied by an increase in their workload.

    12. Domestic R&D expenditures in Russia are at a very low level - for many years they have been about 1.1 - 1.2% of GDP. At the same time, in China, these costs amount to 2.1% of GDP, in the USA - 2.7%, in Germany - 2.9%, and in the leading countries (Israel, South Korea) they exceed 4% of GDP.

    13. Spending on education is also well below the levels of developed countries. In general, education currently spends about 4.3% of GDP, which significantly lags behind the values ​​of 2009 (5.7% of GDP). At the same time, the OECD countries spend on average more than 6% of GDP for these purposes, and the leading countries - more than 7% of GDP (Finland, Great Britain, Sweden, Israel, Indonesia).

    14. At present, the average salary of doctors in Russia (in terms of PPP) is more than 5 times lower than the salary of medical specialists in Germany and the Netherlands, 4.7 times lower than in Great Britain, 3.5 times - than in Finland. The implementation of measures of national and federal projects will ensure an increase in the salaries of doctors (according to PPP) in relation to the level of 2018 to 119.3% in 2024 and 138% in 2035. At the same time, the gap with Western countries will decrease insignificantly - in 2035 The salaries of doctors in Russia will be 3.8 times lower than the current level of salaries for specialists in Germany.

  • How much of real causes of Morder revolutions, 1905 and 1917, do they teach in Morder schools? Or in elite private schools for that matter? In the US education system, such topics are generally forbidden and so people who are poor, sick, in debt and overworked, just think it is their fault and rich people 'just worked harder'. And when things get worse they fall for nonsense conspiracies which give much more convenient reasons for hard times.

  • As much as 90 per cent of recorded sanitary logging in the country is "pseudo-sanitary", or carried out on false or questionable pretexts. This is supported by studies such as one by WWF in 2019, which found that 96 per cent of the planned sanitary felling sites it examined had been allocated improperly.

    It is a big red flag, then, that Irkutsk oblast regularly produces more timber through sanitary felling than anywhere else in Russia. The province has a high-profile history of abusing these rules, and those charged with enforcing them a long history of turning a blind eye. In 2019, Irkutsk's top forestry official, Sergey Sheverda, was arrested for facilitating the illegal felling on false sanitary grounds of woodland in a nature reserve.

  • The Accounts Chamber published a report on the results of the audit of the effectiveness of the management of the state subsoil fund for 2018-2020 with disappointing conclusions. Over the past three years, Russia has imported more than a third of strategic minerals and over 60% of scarce minerals. For a number of names, in particular, for manganese, chromium, titanium and lithium, Russian needs are fully covered exclusively by imports, and for zirconium this figure is 87.2%.

    First - any research and making new mines is "unprofitable".

    Second - most of rich sources of minerals are now on exUSSR territories.
