Socialist Leaders Often Wind Up with Massive Vacation Homes and Cayman Bank Accounts
With economic power will come political power, and the veterans of the Castro regime will have nothing left to show for sixty years of poverty and sacrifice. The ‘reform’ faction in Cuba hopes that an interim twilight period between total socialism and total capitalism will allow them to do what other ex-communists have done, and shift their political control in a socialist context into political control and economic power as Cuba changes. They hope for the kind of privatizations and investments that leave the current elite holding the sources of wealth.
If that were the end result of economic re-distribution for me, personally, I'd be all for it, too. However, I'm usually one of the people who winds up paying the bill for all of this stuff.
