Is this the Cuba you know?

Here is a link to a very interesting article about how Cuba responded to losing 50% of its imported oil when the Soviet Union collapsed.

The problems Cuba had after the collapse of the SU are a lot like the problems I imagine Morth America would have if/when the Peak Oil fears are realized.

I find it interesting that the collapse of a socialist system and the collapse of a capitalist system would have almost the same results. The Cuban life the article describes is a lot like my ideal life,(makes you wonder what they are not saying) and if it takes an economic disaster to make it happen, I say "Bring it on!"
I'm going to post something on my blog about it. sometime. or at least a link to a good article I read.
