Putin Calls U.S. a 'Parasite' Over Its Debt - WSJ.com
It might do wonders for American foreign policy, to significantly decrease the amount of money the foreign countries hold in the national debt.
Yes, let's follow that historical bastion of economic brilliance, Russia, instead.
Mr. Putin has stopped his country's sell-off initiated by the drunkard Jelzin.
One of his last acts in power was a law which heavily regulates/forbids foreign involvement in 35 key economic sectors.
FEDERAL LAW 57
He crushed all the Russian "Rockefeller" and "Wall Streeters" and put their wealth (especially in Resource sector) under State control, so Russian people can benefit from the income that is generated and participate in the modernization of Russia.
Putin is a fucking idiot.
I will never forgive that asshole for being "on vacation" and his lack of concern for the brave shipmates on USS Kirsk when she went down.
Pathetic. I could give a rat's ass what he thinks - Russian submarine K-141 Kursk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His opinions - including today's weather - are irrelevant.
When it comes to stupid economic policy, Putin is the expert.
He does have choices if he chooses to use them. The Yen is stable, as is the pound. The Euro is kind of wobbly, but it is still functioning.
No rational person would use Rubles as an economic hedge. When Russia gets a functioning economy again, then we can talk about parasite economies.
Russia finances itself. And will be able doing so for the foreseeable future.
Run some numbers.............I know you can ! It's genetic !
Not only is Russia (in my opinion) territorially too big for its own good, it's also run by corporate gang-bangers, unemployed spies, gypsies and one of the most violent and oppressive militaries on the planet. So, on account of that, I think it's a bit rich for Putin (one of the shadiest characters in global politics, might I add) to label the US as a "parasite" with regards to its debt management. In short, its wanton, unchecked corruption is - unfortunately - a widely accepted hurdle of daily life in Russia.
