На ПРИМУСЕ 18 июля 2019 года в программе «Финансовая грамота» Владимир Баранич, специалист в сфере финансов домашних хозяйств, акын («что вижу – то пою»).

  • На 01.01.2019г. объем депозитов физлиц в иностранной валюте составил $7,452 млрд. За июнь прирост превысил $140 млн — наибольший прирост за 4 года, с августа 2015-го.
  • за январь – май 2019г. рублевые вклады населения увеличились на 3,5%, валютные – на 2,5%. Чувствуют ли вкладчики девальвационные и инфляционные риски с учётом сокращения экспорта, увеличения рублевой массы, напряжения в реальном секторе?
  • валютные облигации Минфина, валютные и рублевые облигации коммерческих организаций Беларуси.
  • белорусские предприятия как основной источник угрозы финансовой устойчивости страны.
  • Инвестиционный гуру Джим Роджерс предупреждает о грядущем сдувании пузырей фондовых рынков. Есть ли угрозы для белорусских вкладчиков? Откуда может прилететь «плюха» по доходам и сбережениям населения?

Program "B for Belarus", 10-07-2019

Владимир Баранич

Vladimir Baranich, a country consultant and media analyst in the program “B for Belarus” on news, views, events and comments from Belarus (center of Europe by the way). Today the major theme of the program is “Belarusians in the mirror of holidays and rituals. Why Belarusians look for something that does not exist (fern flower search on July 6 for example)

  • Belarusian holidays with distant ties to reality.
  • Belarusians in the state of fusion of Christianity, Soviet ideology, paganism and preenlightenment ideas.
  • Searching for something that does not exist: fern flower mystery and why it persists
  • Independence day and its military flavor. Belarus starts the war information campaign in May and finishes in July. Does it make people more patriotic?
  • why Belarusians keep science in disregard? Fear, deficit of self-esteem and laziness.
  • legally serfdom is long gone but it still lives in the hearts and minds of Belarusians. Many of them are sure that the government/Lukashenko pays them pensions and provides for other public services, that the government creates jobs and ensures free health and education. Too many Belarusians treat a nomenclature boss with divine reverence and fear.
  • freedom as a low ranking value in the hierarchy of Belarusians. They celebrate mysticism and escapism, not liberation.
