Venezuelan Middle Class Flees
Venezuela was a South American Cuba pre-Castro style. Well developed, happy upwardly mobile middle class, good infrastructure... a crowning achievement of a huge bridge built in 1953 collapsed recently from a complete lack of maintainance, my doc tells me it is symbolic of what has happened.

So by that ratio Bulldogg, the Cuba from Batista's days would also have been called a "developed country"? I'll see if I can find the most often used indicators for measuring a country's development standard. A gdp isn't enough by a long shot. Social mobility and a well maintained infra structure are though, so you might be right.

For anyone who knows Cuba the country was obviously more developed under Batista than it is under Castro.

That depends, again, on what socio-economic indicators are used. And Cuba could have been underdeveloped under Batista and even more under developed under Castro....

Compared to the rest of the region it was developed then and underdeveloped today.

I'll have a look into this this weekend, see if I can find some good figures on the topic. Let's see if I can change your point of view on this topic. I'll keep politics and the lot out of it, alright?

Cuba during Batista's days was a devolped country.

Cuba had the first three color TV stations in the western hemisphere. Cuba actaully had AMerican Automobile companies release their cars in the Cuban market for before they were released in the American market. Cuba was the place to be.

Night Clubs, Hotels, beaches, and business. Cuba was the main source for Sugar back then too. Cuba's Sugar Cane Farms were the world's best. Also the tobacco farms and tobacco factories were top notch.

American and European businesses loved Cuba.

Sorry Ted, Cuba was one of the leading nations in the Western Himesphere other than Canada and the USA before the days of Castro.

I know, I WAS THERE AND SO WAS MY FAMILY.
