THE BOSS: Putin to Factory Workers – No Soviet Union Anymore, You Must Compete With Other Producers


Mr President, you have been shown our vehicles. What is your opinion – are we moving in the right direction? Did you like what you saw? Vladimir Putin: You know, to answer this question, one has to study global market trends very thoroughly. What I know and what I see shows that your managers are on the right track. You analyse the market, study segments of this market, and based on this, decisions are made as to what models to produce, for what purpose and for what parts of the world. The number of vehicles that can be marketed is calculated and the needs of potential clients are taken into account. This is very important. Frankly speaking, this practice was non-existent here in Soviet times because our market was closed, the economy was closed and we produced primarily for our own needs. And we needed everything, so quality was not a priority, quality was a secondary issue. There was no alternative anyway. At present, since our economy and our automotive industry have become a segment of the global economy, naturally, we have to compete on both the domestic and the global market with the best producers. GAZ is doing fine in this respect. I am sure it will keep up the good work.

  6. Just put attention, he has explain a capitalist way of selling, while in America an increible big portion of students wants socialism. If the inteligent students and grown up people in America don't do something about it, you will have a big problem with them in the future, because there is only one thing more dangerous than an idiot with initiative, and thats a bunch of idiots following him.

  7. Good comrade bro Russian! The society in current China is a Chinese characteristic socialism – a kind of hybrid of socialism and capitalism after Deng's Opening and Reform.

  9. Wait. . . Did Putin just describe a supply and demand economy? You analyse the needs and the demands and then build what is being demanded by the market? This is incredible! The US is toying with socialized medicine while Russia lauds the free market!

  10. When I was little we had many different types of Ladas, later we had many different types of western made cars, the Lada was not as fast, or luxurious, but was 10times more reliable, it doesnt matter if in a blizzard or a heatwave the Lada just kept going.

  11. It doesn't cost them much for materials or much for the machines to put those cars together. I see an amazing vehicle I would personally buy behind the president. The answer to whether they are moving in the right direction is. If you aren't selling your vehicles that are better than your competitors vehicles for a lower price than what they are trying to scheme your people out of. Then no. You aren't heading in the right direction and your vehicles can sit there and devalue and collect dust whilst almost no one buys them. Fucking idiots should already know that.

  12. There's some truth to what the President Putin is saying, but I come from one of the Warsaw Pact countries and there were many objects made in this "closed" economy that lasted for a very long time, they were better quality than many junks made by Chinese workers in Factories that belong to owners from other countries. The cars or motorcycles weren't great but weren't very difficult to repair even on the road as they broke down etc. It wasn't so bad. Not everything was so terrible about the old previous system as many try to paint it. For example every kid had something to eat and everyone had health insurance, also NO one had to pull their still good teeth because dentists became now so expensive so as to many cannot afford the so called "root canal treatment" and now many get rid of the tooth that in the old days would've been saved.
    Life back then was not about working yourself to death for as little as possible to satisfy some market bosses. What's happening to this world?

  16. This approach that putin takes is the traditional general motors approach. Compare putins thinking with elon musk and youll get what i mean. Russia is still behind in the ingenuity department, the products they make are often copies.

  19. Putin never ceases to amaze me. I honestly wonder if this how Solomon was. An extraordinary man, very powerful, yet so humble, gentle and relatable. I feel honored to be living during the time of one of humanity's greatest leaders ever.

  20. Since creation of the Russian Empire, in Russia never was and there are no advanced samples of the equipment including so-called domestic cars. Even the veteran of war the ZIS-5 truck which used firewood instead gasoline, has been created by the western engineers and constructed according to the license.
