I read recently that Fidel Castro is among the richest men in the entire world. Wonder how & why?

Castro does not have much longer to live and it does not matter how rich anyone is, we all end up the same, worm food.

ebs001,

Please remember that ad hominim attacks are not really refutation of the argument but are instead revelations of the lack of ability to logically respond to the subject matter of the argument.

Forbes Magazine annually reports on the world's riches people. Their estimate of Castro's wealth seems a bit spurious and the article below reflects:

In a story published Tuesday about the fortunes of rulers and heads-of-state, Forbes estimated the communist leader's net worth at $550 million, but acknowledged "these estimates are more art than science."
"In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune," the article stated. "This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies."
The magazine said Castro "derives his fortune from a web of state-owned businesses," including a convention center and retail and pharmaceutical businesses.

I think Forbes takes the position the if Castro is the state the wealth of the state is his.

TXS The first part of your earlier post I simply did not understand and the second part of your post is not worthy of comment (I apologize for my previous comment) because it's really not worthy of you.
