Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”.

“In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.

You guys crack me up. Partisan bickering how novel.Both parties blame each other for the same crimes.

Perhaps one day you will wake up and realize that this experiment in big government has failed, the Russians sure did learn this lesson the hard way.
