What do you think we can learn from Cuba's agricultural systems? Do you think interconnected local food systems could potentially replace our current globally dependent models?
That's all true but you would have to wait hours in a line for meat especially chicken.
This needs to happen 🌎 wide nation wide this 🌎 would be like cuba a better place better health......long life spand....
Most relevant topic since Noah left the ark.. Good work Cuba!!
Backyards in Czech Republic 🇨🇿. We have one. Except of majority of young socializing people, every family has one.
And then, what's the percentage of population working in agriculture? It may be cool to do urban farming if you're into that, but otherwise it's time consuming. One of the main strengths of industrial agriculture is that it allows 98% of the population to do anything else than agriculture. And mehcanizing the agriculture is nothing bad, you can use crop rotation and all the techniques there too. It's the mass consumption (mainly livestock) that destroys the lands.
If the Cuban government would be more lenient then we can thrive in Cuba. They don't let us trade freely. If you own a farm you have to sell to the government everything you grow at low prices. you can't really make a living. Most farms in Cuba are abandoned. They are used for underground business such as tile building or selling construction materials. We have the potential to thrive but socialism don't work. The government controls everything and when you try to make progress than you are raided by the police.
Cuban here <3
A little Econ 101. The real name for Cuba’s system is subsistence farming. Been around for thousands of years. It happens when food is so expensive or unavailable that raising food becomes the most profitable use of your time. Food is expensive or unavailable in Cuba, most jobs don’t pay enough to bring food home in a quantity that feeds people. In the west we have cheap abundant food of wide variety so you don’t quit your job making cute videos to raise food when only a fraction of your income feeds the household. Cuba has zero to teach the USA, if they didn’t have year around growing season they would be like North Korea, people dropping in the street due to hunger. Got to go now and tend my garden...
This shows how free markets can't solve the global crisis of overproduction we have in our food sector
When communism kinda did its job
and an amazing job, in fact
60-80 percent of Cuba's food isn't even produced in Cuba, most people aren't surviving off this sustainable agriculture, they're surviving off another country's industrial agriculture.
Great! I uploaded italian subtitles so I can share it with my people who don't understand english very well. I'm loving all your videos!
Have you seen the lines in Cuban stores for basic goods? Rationed meats? Non-existent transportation system? Non-existent sophisticated medicine (you get cancer, you might as well just get your will done)? Rampant prostitution? Stop being such a rube millennial and grow up!
ive been growing an organic garden for several yrs. today is the first time ive seen this video. what is cuba going to teach me? cube is so shockingly poor it cant afford pesticides or herbicides if it wanted to. organic was their only option and that's a good thing.
Green Party US also is the only party supporting the family farmer and like Henry Wallace back in last century, supporting agricultural parity by platform in opposition to commodified industrial agriculture.
My hat is off to their system, unlike the system In the Industrial world which promotes cancer and it shows how brainwashed those are that keep on knocking it.
The world was supposed to die of hunger in mind 1970's. Mathematically there was supposed to be massive starvation as population expanded and it was impossible to grow more food. Modern method prevented mass starvation
Let me translate . . . How Cuba's inept attempt at state-run industrial farming failed miserably leaving everyone to fend for themselves.
I've been to cuba and can tell you the last thing we want to do is model our food supply chain off of them. The food there was actually kind of terrible, both in flavor, and in quality of produce.
