Putin Levels Michael Dell at Davos

At this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland - Vladimir Putin made two BOLD statements and flattened Michael Dell (CEO of Dell) in the process. We will discuss this on the weekend podcast.

He cited Russia's failed experiment, "communism" and warned the West against state intervention in their lagging economies. Then regarding Mr. Dell's question on how IT Companies [he means Dell] could help Russia develop its IT infrastructure: "We don't need help. We are not invalids. We don't have limited mental capacity," Putin replied.
