Question: How much truth is behind these two particular quotes?
"Castro made biotechnology one of the building blocks of the economy,
and that has opened the door - just a crack - to intellectual property."
This strikes me as an exaggeration of the significance of some guy
suggesting that Cuba patent its home-designed drugs.
"No one knows how - Cuba's economy, with its secrecy and centralized
structure, defies market analysis."
Suggesting that a socialist economy "defies market analysis" amuses me,
but what I really want to know is if the author really can't find such
information, or if he just found it likely and logical to say that he can't.
