Mordor: Capitalists have no homeland
  • According to the current data of the Federal Customs Service of Mordor, for 11 months of 2020, wheat exports from Mordor amounted to 33.7 million tons. The results of other countries are much more modest: for example, Canadian exports for 11 months amounted to 24.4 million tons, the USA (traditionally the main competitor) - 24.2 million tons, France - about 18.5 million tons, Ukraine - 17.6 million tons.

    Actually grain reserves are very low now and inflation on flour, pasta and bread set new records in years. Most of the money large exporters gained never returned to country.

  • Inflation on sunflower oil reached 100-120% for cheap brands and around 20% for better brands, with all sales cancelled last 6-8 months.

    Almost all extra sunflower oil that manufacturers managed to get unsold such way went into... China and also some in EU. Chinese middle class love cheaper and "vegan" oil.

  • Most good fish is no longer sold in any good amounts in Mordor. As fish traders association leader told - Mordor slaves are non competitive on the fish market.

    From around 85% domestic consumption in 1990 numbers went to 5-15% in 2020, on some good fish they are below 4% on some cheap it is 20-25% still. Fish consumption per citizen now around 15-30% in the bottom 80% families compared to 1990. Around 98% of fish exports go to China, Japan and EU countries. Another 40% of fish is being get by foreign vessels that buy licenses now as around 85% of domestic vessels already disintegrated after 30 years of almost no building of anything.

  • According to some sources Sputnik-V COVID vaccine is now being used from 10% to 30% of planned capacity domestically, shortages are severe, yet big amount of it is being exported to allow nice income to certain business structures.

  • Inflation on vegetables

    • YoY potatoes price rise around + 100%
    • Tomatoes - +30-50%
    • Cucumbers - +30-50%

    All this because our capitalists made lot of new imports restrictions and sanctions, for example fresh potatoes from Israel and Egypt actually limited prices and now they are banned (have no idea why this time, last time had been due to plane crash). For reference - average price big retail giants buy potatoes is 5 rubles and 10 rubles per kg for premium from farmers and other sources, after 4-5 months in storage (that they usually rent) they resell same potatoes for 30-40 rub/kg and premium for 50-55 rub/kg.

    Turkish and Azerbaijan bans allowed to rise tomatoes and cucumbers prices for local producers.

  • Grain exports from Mordor from the beginning of the 2020-2021 agricultural year (July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021), as of February 11, increased by 28.5% compared to the same period of the last agricultural year and reached 36.3 million tons. This is stated in the materials of the Ministry of Agriculture.

    "According to the operational data of the FCS of Mordor (excluding data on mutual trade with the EAEU member states for January and February), as of February 11, 2021, in the current 2020-2021 agricultural year, 36.3 million tons of grain have already been exported, which is 28, 5% higher than in the same period last season (28.3 million tons), "the ministry said.

    And they do not care about big inflation of anything produced from grain at home. Not even a little.

  • Change in export from Mordor, note that this year was largest domestic reduction in food consumption in many years due to big price rise where lot of products are no longer available to people with small income

    Also note that most of the year prices actually had been smaller than 2019, so natural export is mostly larger increase than money based numbers.

  • The nice thing about USA is that we have so much abundance. You can be poor and at least eat well.. for now

  • @robertGL

    Here it is same thing, problem is that we also need to feed EU, China and lot of other guys.

    And this feeding looks a little strange, we sell them food and resources for low prices (many contracts are top secret), get money (say $100), and after this use only $30-50, where other $50-70 goes is little mystery (Norway is similar, they just have nice legend - called national fund).

    I am not even saying that lot of export goes using fake prices via special representatives companies, so stealing happen on early stages.

    Even all our artificial "crisis" events are just form of fast renegotiation of feeding terms.

    • 1998 - boom and due to crisis (and huge dollar rise) they closed lot of factories and reduced fuel consumption, this is main trigger event of new resources export restoration wave (can open any chart).
    • 2008 - same thing, rising resources prices had been reversed and another devaluation added to this
    • 2014 - again same shit, but now under other pretense
    • 2020 - smaller event, but same outcome

    Not only this, but all local capitalists LOVE such events, as they work internally very nice:

    Suppose you have 50 rubles per dollar course, oil is $50 per barrel, people earn 10000 rubles ($200). Total rubles in country is 1 trillion (20 billions). All numbers are just for example.

    Event occurs, changes are as follows: you have 75 rubles per dollar, $27 for oil and people still earn 10000 rubles (now it is $133), prices of all things are also 1.5x higher, food will catch slightly later.

    If you look at this - only one thing happened. Our partners renegotiated exchange terms, now they want much more. Price that media feeds us is absolutely fake, as only 1-2% of oil is openly traded. Al else in under dark clouds, some contracts are 30-40 years old and are under very tight guard.

    Suppose in one year oil returns to $50. How things will look?

    You will have 73 rubles per dollar. How so? Now it is 1.46 trillions of rubles in economy (same $20 billions as initially), this 460 trillions went to proper capitalists, for free (formally it is more complex). So, worker salary is still 10000 rubles ($137).

    Nice game - such way ruling class become much more rich, their quality of life improved, with them also some of their servicing and clerks. But all working people had been robbed.

    One thing is also ignored, why they love to do so? Because making people poorer for colony is very nice idea, they can buy less food and other stuff, so without any production changes you can now EXPORT more.

    Whole fight now is that our partners want another round right away, hence Navalny try. Guy stands for making ultra liberal system with very poor people under full control of our partners. And does it openly.
