Cuba Cracking Down on Entrepreneurs

I continue to believe that the best way to take down this regime is ending the embargo and flooding Cuba with the most basic goods of civilization:

President Raul Castro issued a stern warning to entrepreneurs pushing the boundaries of Cuba’s economic reform, telling parliament on Saturday that “those pressuring us to move faster are moving us toward failure.”

Castro has legalized small-scale private business in nearly 200 fields since 2010 but has issued tighter regulations on businesses seeing as going too far or competing excessively with state enterprises. In recent months the government has banned the resale of imported hardware and clothes and cracked down on unlicensed private video game and movie salons.

I once had high hopes that this Castro would be better than the last. Remains to be seen, I suppose.
