Castro Reinvents the Cuban Revolution—Again



Leftist Richard Gott has written an interesting essay on how Fidel Castro is seeking to ensure that his legacy survives in some shape or form.

A new direction in economic policy is bringing about greater market liberalization."While health and education will remain free, subsidies on electricity and housing will be lowered, and food rationing will eventually be phased out." Gott informs us that Castro"is not moving towards a market economy but to a society that is made more aware of the value of what it consumes." Whatever. It sounds like an improvement to me.
