An Illusory Opening to Cuba: Why Florida Shouldn’t Walk Through the Breach
A wiser use of Florida’s business resources would be to prepare for the day that a democratic government that respects the rule of law is in place on the island. Businesses would have control over who they hire, access to courts, and the ability to rest assured that their investments not only help the Cuban economy generally, but that the Cuban people will see the benefit of those transactions. Our state is poised to play a pivotal role in a free and democratic Cuba. We should ensure our legacy is one of supporting a market-based economy with guaranteed human rights instead of a decrepit dictatorship whose legacy will be confined to the dark annals of history.
