Carlos Eire reports that Castro, Inc. profits from hurricane Irma by offering loans to its victims
Time for a slight correction: Castro, Inc. has not totally ignored ordinary Cubans.
No, not at all.
It has offered them loans. Yes, loans.
In other words, it is profiting from this natural disaster and the suffering it has caused the Cuban people.
Since insurance doesn’t exist in a totalitarian regime such as Castrogonia, there is no way for anyone to repair damage caused by hurricanes or any other disasters.
This means that Cubans — all of whom earn no more than $30 per month — have no way of fixing their damaged homes.
So, along comes Castro, Inc. with a diabolical solution: loans. Yes, loans! Unbelievable, but true.
It’s even more obscene when you realize that there are no property rights in Cuba.
