    He has never actually been a businessman of any sort yet he is richer than Bill Gates and some people here actually admire him for it whilst at the same time ranting about the excesses of capitalism !

    Go figure

    Nope. Not a businessman in the Western sense. It is said he was able to get $ 250 millions of the KGB funds and it's been young man made good ever since.

    Re: Russia's former largest foreign investor: Putin is worth $200 billion.

    When asked to estimate his net worth by Fareed Zakaria of CNN, Browder said: "I believe that it is $200 billion.

    "After 14 years in power of Russia, and the amount of money that the country has made, and the amount of money that hasn't been spent on schools and roads and hospitals and so on all that money is in property, Swiss bank accounts, shares, [and] hedge funds managed for Putin and his cronies."

    "I believe"?

    Is that all?

    Then why not $500 billion? Or $1000000000000000000000000000000000000000 billion?

    Browder is a suspected at crime in Russia. Fugitive. Biased. He can say anything.

    But Business Insider also put this image:

    It's not "I believe", just facts, figures.

    Your image doesn't include 2014. Russia's GDP is currently less than the state of California.
