Communism Does Not Work
As we get older we get wiser. To that point, some of us see things coming that others do not.
During a lunchtime interview in Havana last week, Jeffrey Goldberg, a correspondent for The Atlantic magazine, asked the ailing leader if Cuba's economic system was still worth exporting to other nations.
According to Goldberg's blog, Castro replied, ``The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore.''
Goldberg didn't pry into Castro's surprising statement, but said he believes it was clear what the aging leader meant.
``He said it in an off-hand way, but not jokingly,'' Goldberg wrote The Miami Herald in an e-mail Wednesday. ``I think this was an honest recognition on his part that his brother must re-order Cuban's economic system in order to keep the country afloat.''
