Zurab`s lightning rod?It seems that the monetization of social benefits has let out the genie of national discontent from a bottle in which he dozed last years, lulled by government assurances that all at us is good. Will tyre out it back oh as uneasy: leaving on streets, people are indignant not only a monetization of social benefits is only an occasion. All collected offences are splashed out. On a rise in prices in shops, on small pensions, grants and salaries, on rent increase... The grandmother from a TV screen so formulates the general mood: “ Well will add to me of roubles two hundred, and what? Here would increase pension to five thousand... “
and after all that is very important: the protesting use sympathy and support of almost all population. Earlier when someone where - that striked or blocked roads, it called poisonous comments a safe part of a society: who supposedly you, children, has paid? The cynicism was in most cases defensible - almost always for protesting there was somebody pursuing the own aims. This time all not so.
On myself I judge. For last year anybody from my acquaintances did not begin to live better. Any person. Perhaps where - that according to official statistics real (that is taking into account inflation) incomes also have grown for nine percent, but I do not know such people. But personally at me the rent in January has grown on 25 % (though all previous year too), the payment for parking place on the sly grew - too on 25 %, for sports sections of children I cry twice more than one year ago, gasoline for a year has risen in price for third... I do not know, how statisticans calculated inflation for last year that it has turned out at level of 11,7 % - on my personal sensations it was in any way below 20 %.
And in January, apparently, all on a broader scale will rise in price especially sharply. And it - against performances of government officials that population incomes grow twice faster inflations that salary growth strongly advances labour productivity growth. From regions letters of businessmen come: what`s happened with solvent demand of the population where it was gone? Yes here there also was gone - in a precipice between an official and real rate of inflation.
now the national anger has fallen upon M.Zurabova as on the main thing responsible for a monetization of social benefits. Though also he not unique who thought out this reform and spent, and reform - only a concrete occasion to expression of discontent of people by the standard of living. It is possible, of course, “ to hang up all dogs “ on Zurabova to appoint its lightning rod and with a crash to oust. A leah here only will solve this all problems? Unless hardly - hardly people will calm down. To a following concrete occasion.
