What we are going to see in Cuba from now on, after Fidel Castro's resignation as President of the Council of State, is change disguised as continuity. The new leadership -Raul Castro, Carlos Lage, etc -- will start making small, incremental changes in the economy, but always claiming to be sticking to Fidel's wishes. They will even quote from Fidel's speeches (probably out of context) to do things that Fidel would never have done. What do you think? Will we see change disguised as continuity, or continuity disguised as change?
