Cuba’s MIlitary Dictatorship–A Lost Reform

Even the Chavez model seems neoliberal compared to the CubanMilitary-Based Economy.  The Cuba’s will not find much solace in these so-called “reforms.”  Sad but true for those who might have had some hope that there would be changes–I guess not in our lifetime

Raúl Castro’s consolidation of his position as successor to his brother Fidel confirms that his Cuba will give the military domestic hegemony, which makes any serious political or economic opening in the near future seemingly impossible. The Cuban Communist Party’s recent Sixth Congress reflected this, offering little new and rehashing a lot of the old.
