This article hasn't gotten the attention it deserves - From Agence France Presse - January 29, 2005 China has created brand-new form of capitalism: Bill Gates Some of his comments on the labor conditions of China are remarkable - He characterised the Chinese model in terms of "willingness to work hard and not having quite the same medical overhead or legal overhead".(It's called slavery, Bill.) Then Gates started praising the tyrants who rule China - Gates continued by heaping praise on the current generation of Chinese leaders. "They're smart," he said with emphasis. . . . . "This generation of leaders is so smart, so capable, from the top down, particularly from the top down," he concluded. Unlike last year, Gates has not posted a transcript of his idiotic remarks at the 2005 World Economic Forum in Davos on his speeches page. Despite the denials from a few Microsoft fanboys who have seen the report, I believe that Gates was quoted accurately in the AFP article.
