    Re: Cuba to cut 500,000 gov't workers, reform salaries

    What makes me ashamed of those who are fortunate enough to live in the democracies is that they will chase after Western leaders like George Bush while completely while completely ignoring muderous tyrants like Fidel Castro.

    This is not just ignorance, it is deliberate ignorance. They will even go so far as to publicly defend their remarkable, and inhumane, ignrance. These people are of the lowest form and a disgrace, and a constant threat, to humanity.

    Who is going to provide the Castros’ regimen with credits to purchase raw materials and supplies? The regimen tighten control economy will not be able to provide the required supplies and other initial start up expenses, since it is suffering a liquidity crisis.

    Looking at the previous reforms of the economy introduced in the early 1990’s, after the demise of the Soviet Union, these “new” reforms are very similar to the previous ones. At that time they open up the economy to the private sector but tightly controlled it. When they estimated that the recovery was enough, went back and eliminated most of the private sector small enterprises. Based on those experiences and the regime across the board regulations and high taxes of the private sector, the lack of a strategy to provide access to raw materials, capital and foreign investment, will result in a total failure to revitalize the economy.

    The simple truth is that with employment guaranteed, regardless of price, product or demand, there is no real incentive for creativity. Even if needed change was desired, how difficult it is to be "permitted"? This truth lies at the heart of the problems facing the brothers regime. This system collapses simply from the absurdity and evil of its own nature.

    The regime employs more than 85% of workers. It is practically an exclusive employer in the island. It will be very interesting to find out where 500,000 Cubans, out of work and with minimal skills, are going to find employment. The small private sector in Cuba doesn’t have the capability to absorb that huge amount of unemployed workers.

    i don't mean to defend Cuba's structure, but selfishness is not the only way to motivate human beings. poeple actually care about other people, at their core, about their community.

    you hear "this is the best city in the world" from new yorkers all the time, think they wouln't jump at the chance to make their city better, especially if they might be recognized by doing it?

    I am not pro-Castro but can you show me where is he blatantly a "murderous tyrant"? I have never seen actual evidence proving he is. Whenever I ask for it I get an excuse so I do hope you can up with something. Plus you have to take into account he is 100% better then Batista, who to note was sponsored by the American government. Batista killed students, intellectuals, anyone who dare to question his corrupt regime. Though I am against such strong executive power, and the state in general, you have to be more aware of the situation.

    Take a close look at this site and you will find plenty of evidence:

    Cuba Archive: http://cubaarchive.org/home/images/s...009_update.pdf

    The economic and social conditions are deteriorating at such a rapid pace in the island that the regime will has to set up the conditions for another Mariel boat lift, in order to relieve the increasing internal pressure. The administration shall prepare a strategist to deal with a new wave of Cuban escaping from the island and seen refuge in the US. This could create an increasingly tense diplomatic confrontation with the Cuban regime.
