Fidel Castro is dead

Here is the NYT write up.

It is difficult to find data that can be compared, but here is reporting on the average Cuban income as of 2015

The survey, which was conducted among 1,067 Cubans in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Holguín, Camagüey, Pinar del Río, and Cienfuegos in May and June, found that about 27 percent of Cubans earn under $50 per month; 34 percent earn the equivalent of $50 to $100 per month; and 20 percent earn $101 to $200. Twelve percent reported earning $201 to $500 a month; and almost 4 percent said their monthly earnings topped $500, including 1.5 percent who said they earned more than $1,000.

The average poor person with no children living in the United States earns around 12,331 a year. This is 1,027 per month.
Remember that it is results, not intentions, that matter when evaluating public policy.
Viva the revolution.
