The Collapse Of The Russian Bear Thread

Recommended Posts

An example of what happens to an economy when they don't play by the rules as dictated by the world supreme leaders....basically Merkel and Obama. Meanwhile Merkel has the same torture pencilled in for the UK after we leave the EU.

NATO has scrambled fighter jets to intercept an unusually high number of Russian military aircraft on Oct. 28 and 29

If the bear is cornered it will react

It's got a few ace cards up its sleeve yet.....just turn the gas line off then we can all suffer together.

It's interesting where this is going to go from a geo-political standpoint. Putin certainly isn't in the same position as Mubarack, whose options were strongly limited by western opinion.

The west of course has significant interest in a stable Russia, not too strong or too weak of course.

Yeah right, we've got what 14 days gas storage capacity. Try your best Putin...... He won't last more than 13 days before he breaks and turns it back on......

I'm in the process of having a log burner fitted in the house, so if this does happen at least we have an option to heat some of the house.

In old school politics this balance was achieved with the old powers of Britain, Germany and France. Luckily the US decided in it's wisdom to get rid of the old school, now there is no power in Europe to contain the bear.

Imagine they just default.

Who is the loser then?

Vlad.

Thought you were an Austrian who insists people/countries pay their debts?

Where in austrian is there an insistence of debt repayment.

The Whole essence of default is covered in the BUST phase of the Austrian Economic cycle.

probably worth a bit more study than rumourmongering I suggest.

Anyway, Vlad has some gas...we dont...we say, we wont pay in roubles, and by the way, we want our dollars back....what Does Vlad have to do?...he has all the gas he needs.

Well yes. Gas alone does not equal all the stuff that people want though, at least in the short term.

Russia, like the US probably does have the ability to turn inwards completely should it desire. I doubt whether that would be much fun for the population in the short term but in the long term they could make something of it.

People have lived on islands, continents, ice, deserts, whereever, thousands of years before someone thought of banking.

Difficult, maybe, but one day, something vital is going to run out...and nature has one way of restoring balance.

I thought the whole world was trying to devalue as a means to beggar thy neighbour policies.

Looks like they've got a winning strategy.

Expect the Bank of England, PBoC, BoJ, ECB to be looking on jealously.

Sometimes a bit of isolation can cause a resurgence. Look at the development of a payment system to rival VISA and Mastercard for instance. Difficult short term but could end up stronger long term.

Cheese.

Apparently one of the american "jack" cheeses is no longer available, so busy getting own replacement going.

They could probably start up a whole semiconductor industry or take one of the linux distros and make it their own and base all their internal service government / service sector around that platform.

So, yes, if the will is there and greed at the top does not take over and waste the resources available it would be possible to have a renaissance entirely due to being shut out of simply buying shit in. With the modern web it would be almost impossble NOT to get details of any IP / process / that they did not have, so in many ways far more viable now than in the past. Like the Chinese they probably already have one copy of pretty much any non-military device/part/machine that they could ever want to reverse engineer.

US/UK modest inflation = bad

Russian (hyper) inflation = good

Wish you Austrians would make your minds up!

Are you deliberately making false claims to discredit, or are you genuinely not aware of the Austrian theory of credit cycles..where all those things you mention are good and bad in the different phases of the cycles...cause and effect.

There is no mind to make up...there is a need to recognise what stage of the cycle you are in.

China was closed for centuries...they built walls to keep us out.
