B) Puerto Rico has a higher life expectancy than Cuba.
C) The U.S. has a higher life expectancy than Cuba.
D) Before the revolution they had a very high life expectancy and after the revolution life expectancy has increased slower in Cuba than the rest of Latin America.
Lol Castro has always been head of the party. Castro has always been the President of the Council of Ministers AND the President of the Council of State though like an absolute monarchy due to Castro's declining health the President of the Council of Ministers has been transferred through heredity to his brother.Neither exists. And Castro is not the state, the communisty party is the authority in Cuba, and Castro is not the party, merely the figurehead, visionary and father, who, thus, must be respected.
You haven't provided anything that could even remotely be called proof. Provide a peer reviewed paper for even a single one of these supposed medical breakthroughs.I've provided you with proof, if you don't believe it, do some research. With such apparent laziness it is no wonder you hate the state of the workers so much.
You keep saying that, but we have nothing but your word,
Ha no it's not, Cuba is squarely at third world status.and regardless, Cuba still performs on par with the 1st world,
Pre-revolution Cuba was on par with the 1st world, now it is part of the third world while much of the rest of Latin America has far surpassed it.the region doesn't.
Ya Cuba is such a paradise people risk their lives everyday to escape it.Cuba is the envy of Latin America. Which is the very reason we have such great men in ower in the region, such as Chavez, Morales and Correa, because the people want to be more like Cuba.
Only because the Cuban state does not allow outside observers to review their statistical methodology because there statistics are bull****. By looking at their per-capita gdp alone we can see that Cuba is far below the average of Latin American countries.Fantastic, you know what country you are talking about now Cuba outperforms the vast majority of similar states on that index
It's been a while since I've said something fierce and iconoclastic on this thread... Let's see...
I'LL GIVE PREFERENCE AND EVEN PAY A $2 A GALLON MORE TO ANY GAS COMPANY THAT HAS HUGO CHAVEZ'S SEVERED HEAD DISPLAYED IN THEIR CORPORATE HQ LOBBY.
There, my ego has been fed for today.
And all communist countries lie their pants off about their infant mortality, and thus life expectancy. It's probably decades lower than UN reports!
The same also applies to literacy rates, GDP, and all other economic indicators.
