Deputy Delyagin announced the need to transfer the economy to a military footing
Partial mobilization will not have a noticeable impact on the economy, but its transfer to a military footing, the deputy chairman of the committee believes State Duma in Economic Policy, Doctor of Economic Sciences Mikhail Delyagin. He stated this in a conversation with Lenta.ru.
Transferring the economy to a military footing is absolutely necessary. I have been talking about this since the first day of the special military operation.
“At the very first meeting of the State Duma after the start of the special military operation (SVO), I spoke on this topic. But you need to understand what is the meaning of investing in it. Of course, this is not the enslavement of people in their jobs, this is a reorientation of the economy from financial speculation to ensuring the development of industry,” Delyagin said.
What does the transition of the economy to martial law mean?
The deputy explained that for the development of the economy it is necessary to maximize the added value, and this requires a “normal tax regime”.
“Taxes are levied within the country on production, and not outside the country on the part of foreign trade that we do not need. It is also necessary to normalize the customs regime. It is necessary to immediately protect the imports that we produce ourselves with high duties,” Delyagin is convinced.
That is, those goods that we do not produce, let them import, but those goods that we create ourselves: 40 percent of the customs duty should be from friendly countries, 80 percent from robber countries
Another important point in the transfer of the economy to martial law, the deputy called the reduction of production costs. “Costs must be kept to a minimum. The basic branch of the economy, which provides material costs for industry, should not work from profit, but work to zero, ”he explained.
At the same time, Delyagi recalled that if production runs to zero, then it will no longer be private property.
Therefore, either very strict regulation or soft nationalization is necessary.
“How in England after the war: 51 percent to the state, the rest to private traders. So England from complete bankruptcy in a matter of years restored its position as a world economic power, ”he said.
However, there is no talk of confiscation of property, the deputy reassured. “But if someone has an infantry fighting vehicle (infantry fighting vehicle – approx. “Tapes.ru”), then, probably, they can confiscate it, ”he added.
Limitation of financial speculation
After fulfilling all the previous points, there should be a restriction of the arbitrariness of monopolies, Delyagin said.
“And then – cheap loans, respectively, limiting financial speculation. As all countries do at our stage of financial system maturity. Whoever did not do this, such a country had no chance to become a developed country, ”said the deputy.
Delyagin is also convinced that partial mobilization will not globally affect economic processes.
“Of course, for individual entrepreneurs and enterprises, this can be tragic. Because small businesses are individualized by nature, but in general the economy will not notice this. You also need to understand that it is extremely rare for people with combat experience to occupy key positions outside of specific areas, ”he concluded.
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov informedthat no decisions were made to mobilize the economy.
September 21 Putin announced on partial mobilization in Russia while addressing the people of the country.
