If not for North Korea, Cuba would be dead last

North Korea's vicious dictator Kim Jung Un should soon be receiving a thank-you note from Cuba's vicious dictator Raul Castro. If it were not for North Korea, Cuba's corrupt economy would rank dead last on the latest index of economic freedom.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Cuba: 2nd Least Free Economy in the World
The Heritage Foundation, in conjunction with The Wall Street Journal, has just released its prestigious 2014 Index of Economic Freedom.

Cuba ranked 177th out of 178 countries.

Only North Korea fared worse.

Cuba and North Korea are the world's remaining totalitarian regimes.

Meanwhile, countries like Iran, Belarus, Zimbabwe and Burma were considered more economically-free than Cuba.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
