Only Change Can Save Cuba
- During his tenure as Maximum Leader, Cuba has become an economic sinkhole. Just ask the Russians, no experts themselves, whether Fidel knows anything about running an economy. They doled out billions of dollars annually in hard currency to supplement Fidel's command economy totaling 35% of Cuba's annual GDP. Tack on another billion or so in remittances from hard working Cuba Americans to family back on the island prison and the financial windfall equals more than 40% of Cuba's GDP! All generated outside its borders! Yet, Castro still managed to indebt Cuba to the tune of US$36 billion.
