Mike Bezos was 15 years old when he escaped from Cuba and fled to the USA, working his way through the Univ of Albuquerque.

He gave his stepson, Jeff, a 1988 Chevy Blazer, and while Jeff's wife Mackenzie drove across the country to Seattle, Jeff typed up the business plan for Amazon.

Not bad for a first generation immigrant. Thank Fidel for Amazon!

I remember George Gilder writing that Fidel wanted to create the world's greatest city in Cuba, so he expropriated all of the physical capital, suffering from the "physical fallacy"--the idea that wealth resides in tangible things.

Fidel did create a great city--in Miami--since the most important capital fled.
