    Default Maybe Putin weren't kidding about surpassing England

    NOVOSIBIRSK, Russia ? In this region of Siberia, long synonymous with gulags and hardship, shoppers mobbed an Ikea store last winter with the vigor of a miners? riot. They loaded their outsize yellow shopping carts with clothes, housewares, appliances and small furniture.

    Of course the article fails to mention the shoppers are not ordinary Siberians. They are oil and other natural resource workers that work there.

    IKEA and Wal-Mart together would put probably 75% of shops out of business in less than 5 years.
