Not only did Raúl make this and similar statements, but since taking over Cuba from his ailing brother Fidel:
Reuters also reports:
The cash-strapped state is closing thousands of its small retail outlets such as barbershops and cafeterias, notorious for economic inefficiency and employee theft, and offering to lease the premises to employees or others interested in running their own business.
Starting in 2013 the state plans to turn more than 200 medium-sized businesses, from shrimp breeding and produce markets to construction and light manufacturing, into private cooperatives. The experiment will be expanded if successful.
You know we're living in an upside-down world when Cuba is moving to become less government-centered and more private-centered, and the U.S. under Comrade Obama is doing the exact opposite. Pretty soon Americans will be taking rafts to escape to Cuba!
Yep. China too is embracing a certain amount of capitalism. Interesting how socialist countries are abandoning socialism, while a certain capitalist country is moving toward socialism. You would think this country would look at other socialist nations and figure out that socialism doesn’t work. But today, the world is screwed up.
Hey Raul, who gave you those stars?
