Money-hungry capitalist nuts @ CNBC dream of a stock market for Havana. How little they know Cuba!

Cuba once had a stock market, the La Bolsa de Valores de la Habana, which lasted from the 1920s until 1959, when the Cuban revolution ended private ownership in the country. The Havana exchange was, in fact, one of the largest stock exchanges in Latin America.

Now, as President Obama moves the U.S. closer to ending the 60-year-old trade embargo with Cuba, this former market history for the communist island begs the question: Will Cuba ever list a domestic stock again?

JG: This dumb thing should not be categorized as "news." They should create a separate section called 'wishful thinking items.' Don't clutter real news with garbage.
