Friday's HOT MIC

Friday's HOT MIC

I caught this episode of "The Profit' on CNBC last night. Fascinating:

I think they sugarcoated the lives of Cuban citizens a bit, but the show did expose the difficulty of starting and expanding a business there. One recurring theme was that Cubans were adamant about not discussing finances. While that may just be the result of a cultural distaste for avoiding such topics, I suspect it had more to do with their fear of government reprisals if the success of their private enterprises were to reflect badly on the failed communist economy.
