Capitalism at work
And here is the proof.
Reuters reports this morning that the Castro regime has just signed contracts with American food growers to import food products worth up to USD150 million, including Cuban staples such as pork, corn and soybeans.
The announcement followed a visit to Havana by a delegation of some 200 very eager American food producers, exporters and minor political celebrities, who are thrilled at all that cash rolling in.
Just as pleased is the head of the Castro regime’s food importing agency, Pedro Alvarez, who told reporters that the Americans were merely "recovering the market" they lost back in the 1960s with the imposition of the embargo.
"The active and massive participation of the American business community makes us very happy," Alvarez added.
