Quote of the day – Cuba’s easy blood money
In South Coast Today, a Trai Dang, a UMass MBA student traveled to Cuba and found out just how easy the blood money can be for foreign businesses thanks to the apartheid Castro dictatorship:
"When you want to do business with Cuba you have to follow (the rules) in forming a joint venture. The Cuban counterpart wants to own 51 percent, so they're making all the decisions, they have control of the joint venture. [...] So that's how they [foreign businesses] make money, and they're making a lot of money in the short term, so they don't care about the long term. They're not afraid of the government taking away their property — they just make too much money."
