Tycoon Blues

Georgian billionaire, Bidzina Ivanishvili has announced his plans to pit his business expertise and his 5.5 billion dollar bankroll against the Saakashvili government in the 2012 parliamentary elections.

The news hasn't been so well received by authorities...

Ivanishvili said that he wants to be Prime Minister and that he can transform the country into a democracy that will surprise Europe in two to three years. Then, he said, he will leave politics and return to his quiet life in the village and his Tbilisi mansion.

If Ivanishvili ever develops a nickname in the popular press, PLEASE let it be 'Rich Uncle Pennybags'.
