Without doubting, the Cuban journalist, Carlos Alberto Montaner says that the system that Cuba wants to implement does not work and is totally unproductive, because it is a socialism without subsidy and capitalism without incentive, intended to end what has been done for 50 years in his country.
"In Cuba there is no possibility of saving money, the self-employed can develop small service companies, but cannot become powerful people, make money, and capitalize, because the purpose of government is not creating a capitalist system or a market economy, but to eliminate a million and a half workers that they have to pay every month to incorporate them into a private system that is unable to sustain them, because that private sector cannot generate industry."
Montaner wonders what will happen with Cuba when Fidel and Raul Castro die, and therefore is skeptical about the future of the island after the restoration of relations with the United States and the production system to be implemented.
Regarding socialism of XXI century in Latin America, Montaner said that "it will fail in the mid-term and will implode, as evidenced by the crisis in Ecuador, the lack of resources in Venezuela, resistance in Bolivia to Evo Morales's reelection and finally, an hegemonic party in Nicaragua with a large economic control over a population that is satisfied enough to not condemn dictatorships ".
Carlos Alberto Montaner dedicated the first part of his speech in the discussion 'The New Political Map of the World' to lead the audience on a tour of this map since the era of socialism in Russia up to now.
Assures that the new world political map has three actors or three forces from economically and militarily point of view:
1. United States, which he considers, is in a very strong isolationist process with an interventionist concept by assuming that this nation has a role to play in the rest of world. He notes that since President Clinton the country is leaning more towards isolationism.
2. China, which he describes as an important factor by the size of its economy, similar to the US, and due to how Chinese have called something like a path/road, convinced that they must play an important role in the world, but over a basis of a influence that he considered soft, setting as an example, the intention of building a canal in Nicaragua, and the purchasing of 300 kilometers in Iceland to establish a civic base.
3. Russia: Having in mind that Putin is to Montaner, the last tsar and who is not a Communist who wants to restore this trend in Russia but to prove his greatness measured by the number or size of adjacent territory he can conquer
