In a previous post, I pointed out Fidel's own words that the Cuban model just does not work, not even for Cuba.
Now that the reality of what he said has set in, Fidel says that he was misunderstood. In his correction, he said "My idea, as the whole world knows, is that the capitalist system now doesn't work either for the United States or the world, driving it from crisis to crisis, which are each time more serious.''
I guess it is better to be permanently depressed than having ups and downs in the economy.
I still think that he would make a nice addition to the Obama Administration. Afterall, rats are abandoning the sinking ship and Obama needs replacements.
