Comments on: Why $40 oil is killing Iraq, Venezuela and others, but not Russia http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/28/why-40-oil-is-killing-iraq-venezuela-and-others-but-not-russia/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: alibama http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/28/why-40-oil-is-killing-iraq-venezuela-and-others-but-not-russia/#comment-1102854 Mon, 07 Sep 2015 15:17:55 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43060#comment-1102854 this article seems biased, light on evidence, and heavy on traditional perspective. While possibly relevant for the aging and elderly probably not applicable to the youth, where showing off stoic poverty and being a good comrade isn’t nearly as rad as an iPhone 6 and some fly kicks… just sayin

Leaders of all countries are nationalistic, whether they are in trouble (Nigeria, Venezuela etc.) or not in trouble (Russia or Scotland). The thing which separates the countries is whether the population believe that the leaders are competent or incompetent. Also, Russian nationalism is not a danger to the world. It is the West’s stupid hostility to Russia that is the danger.

Credit Suisse announced the average Russian has a net worth of $850US, the average Indian $1,000US. Putin and his pals have robbed Russia of billions. Putin is worth over $40b US alone! Let’s see how he holds up after a good long Russian winter.

This is the time-tested and proven method for governing the corporate state.

Kim Jong Un is popular in North Korea (at least on paper). The title of the article is misleading because make no mistake: $40 oil IS killing Russia. Just not the creepy chest-thumper who is driving russia at the moment. They got nothing else.

Now smaller than Italy’s.

Russia’s primary exports now are orphans and herpes. What an empire.

Illyshin, Tupolev, Yakolev are major aircraft makers. Russia has large military industrial complex which is a huge exporter. The Space and tech industries are major assets as well. The crash in oil prices is going to hurt but not shatter the Russian economy.
