The specialist indicated when the savings of Russian citizens will be “reduced to zero”.
Economist Mikhail Delyagin has made a forecast that by the end of 2021 inflation in the Russian Federation could exceed the level by 7.4 percentage points.
On the air of the YouTube channel & # 8220; Aurora & # 8221; he admitted that such a depreciation of the currency would actually lead to a devaluation of the ruble.
This, in turn, would lead to & # 8220; zeroing & # 8221; savings of Russian citizens.
According to the expert, if commodity prices continue to rise and this process cannot be slowed down by the start of next year, the Russia will enter a new wave of inflation in January after activity resumes at the end of public holidays.
Delyagin pointed to the likelihood of repeating last year's scenario, when property prices rose rapidly in mid-January.
He is convinced that the hike in the key rate will not bring significant results and, on the contrary, may lead to a worsening of the situation in macroeconomics.
& # 8220; The increase in the key rate of the Central Bank will not give tangible results, but, on the contrary, may cause a worsening of the macroeconomic situation & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; he said.
Delyagin added that the two main problems in our economy are the so-called hunger for money and a shortage of money in circulation, which is exacerbated by the rise rates.
Previously, TopNews had written that Delyagin had warned the Russians with deposits against the & # 8220; great collapse imminent & # 8221; dollar.
The specialist explained what awaits the holders of deposits in rubles.
