Perkins Apologizes for Making Holocaust Comparisons Play

Jan. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Tom Perkins, co-founder of venture-capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, talks about comments he made comparing today's treatment of wealthy Americans to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany. Perkins, 82, wrote in a three-paragraph letter in the Jan. 25 Wall Street Journal that resentment of the very rich in the U.S. amounts to a "progressive war on the American one percent" paralleling attacks on Jews in the 1930s. He speaks with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West." (Source: Bloomberg)
