In this Feb. 13, 1961 photo, Prime Minister Fidel Castro went cane cutting with thousands of other volunteer workers, and official announcements said he sliced off over 9,000 pounds of cane. As Fidel Castro turn 90 on Aug. 13, 2016, many Cubans openly describe themselves as capitalists, and say time has proven that Castro’s economic ideas do not work. They praise Cuba’s low crime, its health and educational benefits, its investments in making cultural activities and sports available to all, and its support for putting family and friends before work obligations.
