I just watched this magnificent video about Cuba by Simon Reeves for BBC This World.

It’s indispensable viewing for anyone interested in learning about a sclerotic nation now in the midst of the most radical and sweeping economic reforms in decades.

Capitalism is taking hold. Have no bones about it!

Congratulations Simon for hitting the nail squarely on the head in a video that I wish I had written and produced myself.

Check it out…
