$53 goes a long way in Cuba

With $53 per month salary the frugal fidel castro has been able to buy several private planes, numerous luxury homes, enjoys the best wines, and eats the best Spanish olives and cured hams. Not to mention the 11 million slaves that are at his beck and call.
I earn only $53 a month: Castro

Castro, in power since a leftist revolution in 1959, says his net worth is nil and that he earns only 900 Cuban pesos ($53) a month.
Oh, and I almost forgot, his subscription to Forbes. And how come he is not objecting to being categorized a dictator?

Then who paid for the copy of Forbes if he earns so little, considering that it has to be brought to Cuba.
I am sure some folks in Cuba believe him blindfolded and others just dismiss his lies.
