Return on Investment.
Human nature makes us do things in our own interest. Without “the what’s in it for me?” part of the human psyche, we’d have no progress.
So called Marxists revolutionaries like Castro, Guevara and now Chavez, want to fly in the face of human nature. Build a Better Beast, if you will. Change mankind. And since that's not possible, they then turn to changing behavior which of course, leads to brutal oppression.
Industries, companies, products even people have a value , not set by human socio-economic behavior, but by what return or benefit it achieves for the revolution.
The crumbling Tourism Industry in Cuba, the now defunct agricultural giant that was King Sugar, for example, are now victims of the revolutionary economics of Castro and Guevara.
PVDSA which now exists to finance Chavez’s dream of spreading the ideas of Castro and Guevara throughout Latin America seems to be headed down the same road. The vast profits that Venezuela can make in today’s oil market are not being reinvested back into the oil industry, but into the black hole of collectivism. The company then, hasto sell bonds in order to raise capital to make the necessary investments that will allow it to generate more money to throw into the same black hole.
But try as they might, they will never be able to change human nature. Take Dr. Biscet, for example. He was born in 1961. The year that Castro’s revolution morphed from being as green as the palm trees to as red as the blood soaked cobblestones in La Cabaña, a true child of the revolution. And yet, take a look at his principles. Some return on investment.
And speaking of return on investments, what return does Spain expect to get by selling the Cuban people into slavery once again for a few Euros?
