The state is spreading again. The government’s share has increased in Germany over the past two years, and it is again significantly. Streamlining of the state apparatus, reduction in government quota, increase economic freedom and reduction of state enterprise employees, this reform agenda sounds good. The surprising thing here is that the agenda comes from Cuba. The socialist country is virtually bankrupt. In order to avoid national bankruptcy, should the state control will be reduced. They want to allow more market economy in regards to the national debt. Obviously, this puts in Cuba finally the realization that only free markets can ensure efficient distribution and use of resources. What Germany can learn from it? Granted, the bankruptcy threatens Germany not once. In addition, the local government’s share is hardly comparable to the Cuban.
