Former Deputy Prime Minister and acting Prime Minister of Ukraine Serhiy Arbuzov has criticized the words of the current Minister of Finance Natalie Jaresko, who said that after 25 years, the Ukrainians will live " in Switzerland ".
"Awareness of the fact lying at the bottom of the economy has caused a storm of inadequate pride in the Ukrainian establishment," wrote Watermelons in your own Facebook.
"With all suitable sites ? extraordinary meeting of the financial stability Board, the extended Cabinet ? sounded triumphant about the Fact that we are on the verge of economic increase, almost an economic miracle. About the Fact that this threshold can be delayed, besides for a long time, modestly silent. Judging by the joyful bureaucratic interpretations of the current situation in the economy, such a delay seems inevitable. An incorrect assessment can lead to incorrect actions, " he said." The Finance Minister promised the Ukrainian people that in 25 years he will live as the current Swiss ? strange statement. The average rate of increase of GDP for the years 2002-2013 was 3, 5%, and with the 2014 and 2015? 1, 8%. A simple calculation shows that if the growth rate of even 4% per year doubling rate occurs for 19 years, and a tripling in 30 years, " wrote Watermelons." That is, ceteris paribus, if Ukraine's GDP will grow steadily at 4% per year, starting in 2016, Then by 2045 it will be up to 251 billion from the current $ 84 billion dollars (by the way, Switzerland's GDP in 2013 was $ 685 billion that the Swiss are five times smaller Than the Ukrainians). Itself suggests a historical parallel: in the 60-ies of the previous century, Khrushchev made a promise to Soviet citizens that in 20 years they will live under communism. Than all has ended ? all know. Except, apparently, a United States citizen Natalie Jaresko, " said he. Before Jaresko said that by 2040 Ukraine can rise up to a level of prosperity which is today in Switzerland. In her expressions, it will happen, provided the annual increase GDP by More Than 4%.
