In the report “Russia: Migration Challenges of the 21st Century” presented to the President of the Russian Federation, HSE and INSOR economists Olga Vorobyova, Evgeny Gontmakher, Zhanna Zayonchkovskaya, Leonid Rybakovsky set forth thoughts that frighten me with some kind of inhuman, leaden madness.
These are not just the thoughts of enemies – it would be half the trouble if they were just enemies – these are the thoughts of dangerous psychopaths with a perverted and turned inside out logic (but present!) Of psychopaths, clothed with status, influence, authority and the ability to enter high spheres as experts.
Economists-demographers begin with a long enumeration of the facts of the Russian extinction, without naming the reasons for it.
“The rapid decline in labor potential … this is the main feature of the labor resource situation in the coming decade … Over the past twelve years, Russia has been losing annually due to the excess of deaths over births from 700 to 1,000 thousand people … Not only will the population decline, but also the labor potential of the country …
As a result, the accelerating economic development of the country will face a labor shortage in the coming years … According to all variants of the demographic forecast of the State Statistics Committee of Russia, a sharp decline in the number and proportion of the population under the age of working age is expected. “
This we quote briefly the essence, and there it is smeared with figures and calculations on several pages. Further, the mental twist of the gontmachers defies any comprehension. I would rather quote in the original and comment after: “… the implementation of significant GDP growth and, on this basis, an increase in per capita production and poverty reduction is the basis on which Russia can strengthen its geopolitical status and defend its national interests with dignity. Russia will not be able to become an economically powerful state with the necessary natural and geographical resources if it does not preserve its territorial integrity. Along the entire perimeter of the state, starting with the Sakhalin region and ending with the Kaliningrad enclave, neighbors claim Russian territory. Obviously, the border areas are all the more tempting,
