You suggested that US manufacturers would have no competitiveconfirming
advantage over countries even half a world away. Thanks for
this was just another Kennykins Mega-Whopper. And that USrestrictionson trade do indeed help deprive the Cuban population ofelectricity,among other things, as reported in September of this year byAmnestyInternational:I am not "SUGGESTING" anything. I am stating as a FACT. Shipping
distance is only ONE factor in product cost.Look dimwit, I know this is way
too complicated for a stupid Marxist to understand, but cost of labor is
perhaps the largest factor in product cost. In this comparing a product made
where labor costs $25 an hour versus $15 a month.
Like I told your clownish colleague
You mean the guy that exposed your lies using the link you foolishly posted.
here, there is more to competitive(snip)
advantage than factory wages.

And the Us is only number 4 while the numbers 1 to 3 freely trade with Cuba.
the real reason Cuba is in a mess is because it can't pay for anything.
Some of its supplier haven't been paid for a year and over a billion dollars in commercial debts - on top of others - are outstanding.
Mexico, South Africa, Russia, ... and others have had to forgive Cuban debts.
Cuba couldn't repay its Eurobond issue.

HAVANA TIMES, July 20 - The Cuban government has decided to decentralize
expenditures in hard currency for imports, which will now be managed by
the individual ministries instead of a single centralized super account,
reported Mexico's La Jornada newspaper on Monday.
Nevertheless, the daily points out that the new measure does not state
the fate of outstanding accounts that have not been paid to foreign
suppliers over the last seven months, estimated at around one billion USD
