The Inverse Logic of Investments in Cuba / Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo
Posted on April 29, 2014

Cuba’s National Assembly of People’s Power, breaking its usual habit of
holding only two meetings each year, met in March 2014 to unanimously
approve—as, suspiciously, has been the case for all the laws that have
been voted on by the Assembly for decades—a new investment law.

Is it worth-while to focus on the last images and letters coming from
the inside of the last living utopia on Earth? Is Cuba by now a
contemporary country or just another old-fashioned delusion in the
middle of Nowhere-America? A Cold-War Northtalgia maybe? Can we expect a
young Rewwwolution.cu within that Ancien Régime still known as The
Revolution? I would like to provoke more questions than answers.

Commentators will now discuss the legal intricacies and social
transformations that this law will bring for the Cuban people and the
diaspora.

But for us Cubans on the island or in exile—or rather, us Cubans on the
island and in exile, since the difference between the two is less
noticeable every day, especially among the younger generations—only two
aspects of this parliamentary gem of so-called “twenty-first-century
socialism” matter:

1) It is established that Cubans living abroad cannot invest in the
national economy that they have left behind.
2) It is established that Cubans living in Cuba cannot invest in the
national economy that has left them behind.

For the business people of the rest of the world, the democratic tycoons
looking to invest in totalitarianism, only these two aspects should
matter, and make a difference:

1) It is established that Cubans living abroad cannot invest in the
national economy that they have left behind.
2) It is established that Cubans living in Cuba cannot invest in the
national economy that has left them behind.

But there are things that never become true even when repeated a
thousand times. And it’s very likely that investors would turn a deaf
ear to both points.

Nonetheless, please at least allow me the desperate privilege of
anti-journalistically having a third attempt:

1) It is established that Cubans living abroad cannot invest in the
national economy that they have left behind.
2) It is established that Cubans living in Cuba cannot invest in the
national economy that has left them behind.

Investors of the world unite!
