His impact on the Cuban economy was not keen, since – though he was minister of economic development – Fidel considered his schemes rather hare-brained; which was one reason Che left Cuba in brief after the revolution. http://www.assignmentdoer.co.uk/

I LIKE THE PITCHER YOU PAINT OF CUBA BUT SINCE I AM CUBAN AND BELIEVE TO BE MORE AWARE OF THE STORY BEHIND ALL THESEWONDERFUL THING” I CALL YOUR STORY THAT YOU SEE THROUGH GREEN COLORED GLASSES HALF TRUTH . I HOPE THIS THE U.S.A. DOES NOT DO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT OF CUBA DID TO GET "THESE GREAT THINGS " FOR ITS PEOPLE.

The people of Cuba are very resilient. They have an excellent Health and Education system. Their agricluture used no pesticides & I personally hope that their island, their country, remains free of any transgenic crops & any unlabelled GM food.
