Austerity, anyone?

Another nugget from Fidel published in Granma, this one from December 1, 1986 (my translation):

“Many don’t understand that the socialist state, no state, no system can give what it doesn’t have, much less will it have things if things aren’t produced, if it is giving itself money not backed up by production. And I am sure that inflated payrolls, the excess money given to people, excessive inventories, waste, have a lot to do with the big number of unprofitable companies that we have in this country…”

And if you don’t have plans for Sunday, it has been declared a national day of voluntary work.
