    Gorbachev was trying to underscore to Baker how difficult it was for Russia to make the psychological transition to capitalism, after so many years of communism, and he did it with this yarn: A Russian peasant finds a lamp by the side of the road and rubs it. Out pops a genie. The genie tells the peasant he can have any wish. The peasant tells the genie, “You know, I have only three cows, but my neighbor Igor has ten cows.” “So you want twenty cows?” the genie asks the peasant. “No,” says the peasant, “I want you to kill seven of Igor’s cows.”
