Cunning Russians: we grow poor, but we spend more and more. Semyon Novoprudsky's column


"Explosion of a brain" — such effect is caused in the ordinary person by officials when begin to explain some strange things occurring in the Russian economy. For example, why salaries constantly grow, sometimes even above the official rate of inflation, and income continues to fall Semyon Novoprudsky. Photo: Tatyana Frolova the First Deputy Prime Minister, the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov at a meeting of the State Duma Budget and Taxes Committee popularly explained to deputies, and also other people why the income of Russians continues to fall. The main reasons, it appears, two. The first — increase in expenses of citizens at repayment and service before the taken credits. The second — reduction of the shadow sector of economy. So the Finance Minister explained a statistical phenomenon: the real salaries of Russians in January-March, 2019 grew by 1.3%, in April — for 1.6%. At the same time, according to Rosstat, the real income of the population for the I quarter 2019 dropped year-on-year by 2.3%. Siluanov's explanations are how plausible? They are similar to the truth. The debt load of Russians on the credits really grows. In 2018, according to the Bank of Russia, debts of Russians to banks increased even by 22.7% in comparison with the 2017th and reached nearly 15 trillion rubles. It is difficult to count scales of whitewash of the shadow sector in Russia with such accuracy, but also it is the truth. If receipts of the VAT in treasury in the absence of growth of economy, this sure proof of the fact that the legal companies payers became more grow. But what follows from this truth? It is asked how the debt load of people will decrease if their income continues to fall? Of course, sooner or later they will pay off on the credits, but whether will be able to do without new? And if banks, having seen strong debt load of a part of Russians, cease to lend to them, unfortunate will go to microfinance institutions, including in underground because if you have nothing to buy the TV or the smartphone, you somehow will worry and if there is nothing to buy food, you will starve to death or will borrow money at any who will give. So from this debt trap in the absence of growth of real income of the population for any other reasons (we will talk about them a bit later) there is no exit. If fall of income of the population happens because of reduction of the shadow sector, the indecent question comes to mind at once: and why then the state in general fights against illegal economy? And that turns out as in the known joke about the grandson of the Decembrist who in 1917 asks the young revolutionary: — Why do you do revolution? — That there were no rich! — it is proud the revolutionary answers. — "Strange, my grandfather came to Senate Square in December of the 1825th that there was no poor. The situation with the real income of Russians becomes even more similar to explosion of a brain if to listen to the Deputy Prime Minister for social policy Tatyana Golikova. She the other day told that as of 2017 (on the 2018th statistics not yet) the difference between income and expenses of the population made 13.3 trillion rubles. That is we spent for 13 trillion rubles more, than
