"Good news! Despite recent setbacks, the free-market revolution unleashed by Ronald Reagan continues to make strides in country after country.
Unfortunately, those countries don't include the United States.
Surprisingly, the latest country to show signs of new economic freedom is, of all places, Cuba -- where, according to the Washington Post, "The Cuban government, in its most dramatic reform since [Raul] Castro took over for his ailing older brother Fidel three years ago, is offering private farmers... the use of fallow state lands to grow crops -- for a profit."
In fact, it's working so well, they're even thinking about renaming "The Bay of Pigs" to "The Bay of Capitalist Pigs"...
And it's not just communist countries like Cuba, China and Vietnam noticing the benefits of the free market. Even godless, European social welfare states are throwing off the shackles of socialism. Despite incessant claims that the "rest of the world hates us," Germany just elected a center-right coalition that promised to slash taxes, entitlements and regulatory burdens on businesses.
Gosh it seems like every country in the world is becoming more like America, except America, which is becoming more like Finland. "
