Warren made the comment at an event at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, where she was interviewed by author Anand Giridharadas, who asked her to explain the “difference” between her views and Sanders, an independent of Vermont who identifies herself as a democratic Socialist. She also refused to go into details of a conversation she had with Sanders, calling on her not to run for president.
“Bernie must talk to what democratic socialism is,” replied Warren, representing Massachusetts in the Senate.
“And you’re not one?” Giridharada asked.
“I’m not. And the centrist must talk to what they do.” What I can speak is that is how I do it, says Warren.
She continued: “All I can tell is what I believe. And it’s a huge amount that can be retrieved from the markets. Those markets create opportunities.”
“Markets must have rules. They must have a police on the rhythm,” she said, adding that “markets without rules are theft”.
Told earlier in the dinner, Warren said she is keeping the details of the conversation to herself.
“Bernie and I had a private dinner. My opinion is that dinner is private,” Warren said.
