The activity of US President Donald Trump, who unleashed a trade war with China, and the uncertainty in the global economy could lead to a global crisis in the coming months, experts say. Komsomolskaya Pravda understood how the crisis will affect Russia and how to prepare for it.“Through the efforts of Mr. Trump, a crisis may occur in the next two to three months. Stock markets, oil and currencies of developing countries will fall. In the event of an American default, the entire global economy will collapse. Securities in our and not only our reserves will turn into useless ones and zeros on computer disks. The familiar world of global finance will be destroyed, ”Alexander Razuvaev from Alpari told the publication.The fact that no one can understand how relations between the United States and China will develop, said Oleg Buklemishev, director of the Center for Economic Policy Studies at Moscow State University.He also noted that the Chinese economy has been growing at a “fantastic pace” for a long time, but “someday it should end.”“The crisis comes when people begin to believe that tomorrow will be worse than yesterday. (…) A simple example. Suppose the Ivanov family (or the Smith couple, or Lee’s wife) was going to buy an apartment on a mortgage. And then the head of the family read that the crisis was coming, and decided to postpone the purchase. If there are many such Ivanovs, the developer will not be able to sell the apartments and go bankrupt. Builders will be left without work and will not be able to give loans to banks. Those, too, will go bankrupt and will not return the money lying on the accounts of their clients – legal entities. Those will have to shut down the business and dismiss employees. And so on – along the chain, ”Buklemishev explained.At the same time, according to the publication, the head of the Ministry of Economic Development Maxim Oreshkin emphasized that “Russia has a reserve.”“The pill will make it possible to compensate for the loss over two years. Secondly, rather low inflation. She dropped to 4%. And thirdly, a floating exchange rate. With a decrease in the cost of oil, the dollar will go up. And this will allow budget revenues not to fall so much. The crisis will spread to us, but its consequences will be smoothed out, ”Oreshkin is sure.In order to prepare for possible difficult times, it is better to adhere to simple rules, the newspaper notes. Among them, she calls: living within our means and speedy disposal of existing loans; cost reduction and elimination of unnecessary purchases; the search for a part-time job to stay “afloat” in the event of dismissal, as well as further training to become a competent employee, who will be dismissed last; close attention to their own health. The publication also advises to save money and keep them in different currencies.
