Looking for "Lost Business Opportunities" in Cuba

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
A favorite argument of the Obama Administration -- and those who lobby for the removal of U.S. sanctions towards Cuba -- is that we are ceding "business opportunities" to foreign competitors.

That's funny.

Below is a great graph recently published in The Financial Times comparing foreign direct investment ("FDI") in Cuba, Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

Cuba is the darkest red -- but pull out your magnifying glass, for it's such a blip that it's very difficult to see.

So where are those great opportunities that our foreign competitors are gobbling up?

The fact remains that U.S. tourism, financing and investment are the "opportunity" for Castro's bankrupt regime and its monopolies -- to survive.
