LOL. Cuba did not have a private sector (to speak of) until recently. It is not growing because of state payroll cuts, it is growing simply because it is being allowed to exist. This is a good thing for Cuba. Once it pickes up steam, they don't need to cut public jobs, because people will want to move to the private sector on their own.

In Cuba, this was done:

Quote:
The majority of the non-state workers, or about 610,000, were farmers, whose numbers have grown under Castro's agricultural reforms, which include leasing state lands to individuals. The goal is to stimulate local food production and cut the need for budget-draining food imports.

The rest of the non-state workers are mostly in small retail businesses or self-employed such as carpenters, seamstresses, photographers and taxi drivers.
There is nothing wrong with privatizing traditional industries like farming.

However, the OP is using this to make the argument that we should imitate this. But the U.S. doesn't have much it can privatize. In the U.S. it works the other way, a vital business, like a railroad can't ends meet so the government operates it so as to provide the service.

Moreover, areas that have been traditional government operations, like prisons, were failures when privatized.

So, policies in other countries that coincide with good things can be undeniable proof that those policies are good?

Wow.

Australia has socialized healthcare, strict pollution regulators, and taxes the rich at 44.9%. Australia is a great country to live in so that must be proof that taxing the rich is good.

Your posts are absolute political talking point trash.

Yes, maks a false assumption, suggesting governments cuts alone give birth to growth in the private sector.
