IMF forecasts 1.5% economic growth, 15.1% inflation in Ukraine in 2016 [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Fri May 06, 2016 10:39 am

====
Basically positive statistics, but.. can Ukraine survive with inflation this high? There is a lot of discontent currently in the country.
If the hryvnia strengthens inflation could be lower. A lot will depend on the gas price also. And oil.

Early signs from new Ukraine government encouraging says IMF [Engl]

...."We think the signs of the new government's willingness to adhere to the program, to stay with the program and their own adjustment efforts are very encouraging," Pradhan told a news conference.....
====
Frankly, the new government is no different from the previous one.
It is simply that the Rada has dropped Yatseniuk as a scapegoat - he took the blame for the hard decisions made - and voted on by the entire Rada!

Kremlin Operates on Its Most Demoralized Patient – The Media

Post by Nelson on Fri May 06, 2016 11:32 am

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/opinion/article/kremlin-operates-on-its-most-demoralized-patient-the-media/567947.html
....An even bigger change occurred outside the media business. Over those five years, the Kremlin learned a trick or two about its public. It now understood that propaganda works only when you have reframed and primed your audience. Academics have yet to study the mass social manipulation that took place between 2012 and 2016. But we can say with some certainly that Russia has witnessed a shift from relatively pluralistic and open media to a new form altogether. Today Russian media channels a "besieged fortress" mind-set, and represents a jingoistic and socially conservative tribe that negates any kind of "foreign values." The demand for neutral journalism has all but disappeared.
This transformation could not have happened without pressure from above. But it has also taken on an energy of its own. In order to "satisfy" the demand for a conservative mind-set, major Russian news outlets have became even more nationalistic, anti-Western and conservative than required....
