These things are all relative, compared to Haiti Cuba is fairly rich.

Hi Paul C:

Cuba isn't faily rich but they have many doctors (/capita). But,
at least in my way of thinking, the value relationship doesn't
in Cuba determine who who are doctors, how many doctors there are, or the
nature of medical care. The allocation of labour in Cuban society is
fundamentally different from that where the law of value rules.
