    Economic data about income inequality is troubling.

    Why is it so for Russia? Do you think it’s the only way to get the economy going by encouraging the very few with an entrepreneurial spirit to create economic opportunities? I mean, the incentive to riches has been one of the drivers of economic and technological progress.

    As an example, China has never been better than with a capitalistic economy. Could it be a necessary evil that we can tame on later?
