especially for you Austin as a fan of GDP
The Ministry of economic development has prepared a forecast, in which the RF GDP growth in 2015 will reach 9.8 percent
So that the economy could pull the tasks set by Putin in elections next year, investments in fixed capital should increase by 31%
^^^ Must be the 1st april fool joke of MED ....reaching 9.8 % when they are struggling to reach even 1 % this year
I read that earlier they call that optimistic forecast what ever that means
As for currency reveres in EURO or USD? why? maybe ruble with gold parity?
Maybe finally it's time to sell USD and invest in own economy? USD might be not really needed anymore since for any exported goods (inclusive energy resources) gold, rubles or rather altnys will be accepted?
anyway Pozhyviom, uvidim
Gold is something they must keep increasing which the Central Bank of Russia is doing so as with the end of QE .... there is a good chance that US Stocks Bubble and Economy itself will collapse as it happened in 2008 .....atleast most Economist are betting it would happen.
Russia has nothing to worry in long run it holds the resource card and paper money holds no value not with the lack of economic and monetary discipline thats it turned into.
Interesting times ahead ....but lets leave the Economic Discussion here else we might be accused of something
