Obama not able to solve economic problems: Fidel Castro (Lead)February 10th, 2009 - 4:47 pm ICT by IANS
Havana, Feb 10 (Prensa Latina) Former Cuban president Fidel Castro has said Barack Obama and his team would not be able to solve the economic problems faced by the US.
Castro said that Obama, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and “all of the talented politicians and economists they have brought together would not suffice to solve the growing problems of the American capitalist society”.
“Even if Kant, Plato and Aristotle were resurrected together with the late brilliant economist John Kenneth Galbraith, they would neither be capable of solving the more frequent and deeper antagonistic contradictions of the system,” Fidel Castro wrote in his newspaper column.
In his Monday article entitled “Rahm Emanuel”, he stressed they would have been happy in the days of Abraham Lincoln, so much admired by the new president; but those days are now far behind.
“All the rest of the peoples will have to pay for the huge waste and ensure, first of all on an increasingly contaminated planet, the American jobs and the profits of that country’s big transnational,” Fidel Castro stated.
