Quote of the Day – ‘Private’ business owner in Cuba admits there is no such thing as a private company in Castro’s Cuba

Yamina Vicente, one of five so-called Cuban entrepreneurs sent to the U.S. by the Castro dictatorship to promote the apartheid regime's cosmetic economic reforms unwittingly admits that there really is no such thing as a private business in Cuba.

Oops!

Via The Knight Foundation:

“None of us around this table is actually a business. We don’t have yet legal status as companies. We are individuals authorized to be self-employed, por cuenta propia. Legally, Decorazón or Atelier [the restaurant] or D’Brujas [the soap manufacturing and sales business], don´t exist as companies.”
