Kicking some Rooskie Hiney

As shown by the chart above, the Wall Street Journal reported this week that the United States of America is about to overtake Russia as the world’s #1 producer of oil and gas.  Simultaneously, Russian “Prime Minister” Dima Medvedev penned a long tract in Vedemosti in which he admitted that Russia is descending into neo-Soviet economic stagnation.  And the WSJ reported that Putin’s response to this nightmare is stunningly inappropriate, the exact opposite of what he should be doing:  Instead of pursuing policies to encourage foreign investment, Putin is adopting measures to explicitly choke it off. And he’s embarking on massive new programs to vastly increase military spending while cutting the delivery of basic services to Russian citizens.

Russia is being decimated by the USA in its own bastion of strength, fossil fuels. Nothing could more powerfully express the total blindness and failure of Vladimir Putin as an economics manager.  Russia has seen its economic growth rate spiral relentlessly downward, and now it stands on the precipice of a double-dip recession. Even Putin’s own PM admits that Putin’s policies are failing. And Putin’s response is neo-Soviet crackdown rather than innovation.

Russia is doomed.

    Maybe Russia will be able to gain ground by alienating the Arab world and getting deeply involved in propping up Syria’s doomed totalitarian regime. And Iran’s doomed totalitarian regime. Bit of a risky strategy though, as far as I can tell.

    Russia misses a small detail – inevitable end of so called ‘Russian empire’ – the laughing stock of the world and that grotesque clown Volodia liliputtin – a pedophile, a thief that operates during the official visits; e.g. a theft of the $25,000 ring during the visit to USA and cutting off the priceless painting during his visit to France…Bonne continuation

    Dan, you have to pay the fat myrma inside a hefty bribe just to be admitted otherwise you sit out on the street. Which, come to think of it is probably better for you. I russia you go to the hospital to die.
