Even Cuba Wants A Smaller Government

Cuba has 11.2 million people, half of them are workers and 85% of those are state-employed in some way. Now 500,000 people will be forced/allowed over the next year to enter one of the authorized 124 private occupations.

Does anyone have a list of those "authorized" occupations and how specific or vague the definitions are? That could say a lot about the mindset behind the measure, and whether the leadership has a clue.
