Russia to ban all U.S. agricultural imports

Putin decides the average folks don't really need food. That will show somebody something.

No seriously, this isn't really an impressive response.

They might want to rethink this move once winter hits and their citizens are boiling shoe stew.

Putin is making some bad moves. Another round of sanctions on his bank accounts should twist the screws again.

So, the article notes food imports have quintupled from 2000 to 2013 (7b to 33b) under Putin. And we already knew real income has tripled under him.


I'm sure the people of Russia are quite happy with his leadership. Would that the USA have had the same economic story the same time period, rather than a Near Depression and an explosion of forever-debt.

That country is a gangster state. One of the purest examples of a kleptocracy on Earth.

While income has risen substantially, income inequality has shot up under Putin, who calls it "an embarrassment" in your link. Gee, kinda sounds like the words of a certain leader of a certain country of yours & mine - no?


Anyhoo in politics you know (or should know) that it's always about the alternatives. Putin has proved he is superior to the alternatives and particularly vis a vis the disaster Russia was when he took office.


If Obama can hide behind W forever, can't Putin hide behind Yeltsin?

Nice line of bullshit. Putin is an honest and forthright individual. If he cared that much about income inequality, the state wouldn't have the architecture it does considering he rules as a despot.

Putin has presided over a country with GDP growth that has dropped for five consecutive years, down to 0.5% this year. The US's GDP Growth is 2.1% for this year. Russia's account balance as a portion of GDP has also dropped significantly. He just started a war that is going to lead to heavy sanctions on his country as well. And now, he's going to ban US Agricultural imports. I'm sure that Russia quintupled its inputs just because they enjoyed burning US grain and not because they can't adequately feed their own people.

Sounds like tip-top leadership.

Putin wasn't President from 2008-2012. Medvedev was.


But at any rate your info is totally misleading anyway. World Bank has them growing more the past 4 years than the USA:
2010: 4.3% vs 2.5% (USA)
2011: 4.3% vs 1.8%
2012: 3.4% vs 2.8%
2013: 1.3% vs 1.9%

Anyway, the US is something like 1.3/33 of food imports for Russia so something like ~5%, which can largely be sourced elsewhere anyway (even for higher cost). I'm sure they're terrified of "starvation" lulz.
