There are definitely legitimate criticisms to make of some of Cuba's new economic policies, particularly private real estate. It sounds to me like an easy gateway to foreign exploitation.

But people are really attacking Raul for his suit? It's extremely wrinkled and frumpy-looking, plus the lack of contrast between the tie and the suit doesn't really tell me he's trying to draw attention to his outfit. He looks less like a Wall Street executive and more like a professor who hobbled together random clothes from his closet.
Compare it to, say, anything worn by Mitt Romney ever at any point in his life.

Will make a change for the elite in Cuba exploiting them. Maybe the inward investment will make the country more prosperous, it can't hurt.

A dummy corporation headed by a corruptible Cuban may buy half of the real estate of Camaguey or might even own 99% of all resorts at Veradero just like how America owns almost all of the oilfields in Iraq. Moderation and wisdom in applying the law, el hefe Maximo y el hijo de Dios Fidel!
