Fidel Castro’s Chair

See the chair, Fidel Castro’s chair? See how empty the chair is? Raul Castro, seated right, now has the nerve to criticize his brother’s workers’ paradice.

Anita Snow writes about a new honesty in Cuba, “Raul Castro Speaks About Cuba Food Woes [1]:”

HAVANA — Acting president Raul Castro complained to lawmakers about inefficiencies in the island’s economy, telling them in comments made public Saturday that there is no excuse for the transportation and food production problems that anger many Cubans.

One, it can be inferred from the article, that Fidel Castro is dead. Raul Castro would not be criticizing the basic Cuban economy if Fidel Castro were still alive with the potential to return to power.

Two, the Cuban economy does not work because central planned economies have never worked. An economy which can not feed its own population is a failure. See the former Soviet Union. See North Korea.
