  • Cuba For Sale - People & Power

    People & Power investigates the recent economic changes and the effect of property ownership on Cuba's communist legacy. Half a century ago, when Fidel Castro's revolutionary forces entered the Cuban capital Havana, the new leader pledged to improve the lives of the poor by putting an end to capitalist excess. One of the revolutionary government's key measures was the elimination of the property market as a lucrative business. Housing was declared a human right, private rental was abolished and most Cubans were given free properties to live in. But with a US embargo declared on the revolutionary island and its finances dependent on an inefficient state-driven economy, the government ran out of money and vast parts of Havana fell into decline. In a radical move, Raul Castro opened up ...

    Strong winds and waves flooded parts of Havana's iconic Malecon sea wall on Monday (January 23) as Cuba's Caribbean Sea crashed into the coastline. According to Cuba's Meteorological Institute, the freak waves started in the afternoon and are expected to last until Tuesday (January 24). The strong waves and winds are coming from South Carolina where a tropical low has battered that region of the United States. Winds in Cuba have been estimated at up to 60 km (37 miles) an hour. According to local media, the encroaching Caribbean Sea has also reached homes along Havana's coastline. No evacuation orders have been issued to residents or tourists.

One of the revolutionary government's key measures was the elimination of the property market as a lucrative business. Housing was declared a human right, private rental was abolished and most Cubans were given free properties to live in. But with a US embargo declared on the revolutionary island and its finances dependent on an inefficient state-driven economy, the government ran out of money and vast parts of Havana fell into decline. In a radical move, Raul Castro opened up the economy in 2011. Property laws were reversed and Cubans were allowed to buy and sell their homes once more. The government says its revolutionary vision hasn't changed and that the reforms are aimed at safeguarding rather than dismantling socialism. But will the re-introduction of private property make Havana's urban poor worse off? And how will the government deal with the growing, wealthy new class that the regime once fought so hard to defeat? In Cuba for Sale, reporter Juliana Ruhfus and filmmaker Seamus Mirodan investigate the impact of the country's recent economic changes and whether the re-introduction of private property heralds an end to Cuban socialism.

Strong winds and waves flooded parts of Havana's iconic Malecon sea wall on Monday (January 23) as Cuba's Caribbean Sea crashed into the coastline. According to Cuba's Meteorological Institute, the freak waves started in the afternoon and are expected to last until Tuesday (January 24). The strong waves and winds are coming from South Carolina where a tropical low has battered that region of the United States. Winds in Cuba have been estimated at up to 60 km (37 miles) an hour. According to local media, the encroaching Caribbean Sea has also reached homes along Havana's coastline. No evacuation orders have been issued to residents or tourists.

The Republic of Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean. It consists of the island of Cuba, the Isla de la Juventud, and several archipelagos. Havana is the largest city in Cuba and the country's capital. Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city. Cuba is home to over 11 million people and is the most populous insular nation in the Caribbean. Its people, culture, and customs draw from diverse sources, including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples; the period of Spanish colonialism; the introduction of African slaves; and its proximity to the United States.

Santa Clara was a dynamic and relatively "prosperous city" for Cuban concepts. Santa Clara is the capital city of the Cuban province of Villa Clara. It`s located in the most central region of the province and almost in the most central region of the country. With a population near a quarter million; 242,402 people at the beginning of 2013, it`s the 5th largest Cuban city by population. It has the second university in the country and has an important cultural center. In the center is the park "Parque Vidal" where it`s lovely to sit on a bench and enjoy everything that happens around you. Single people come to this park to stroll and meet others. The bullet holes from the revolution are still visible in the walls of Hotel Santa Clara Libre. Santa Clara was founded by 175 people on July 15, 1689. One hundred and thirty-eight of them were represented by two large families already living in the area and, therefore, owners of the land next to the new city. The other 37 came from 7 other families, a priest and a governor, all of them originating in the coastal city of “San Juan de los Remedios”. Santa Clara was the site of the last battle in the Cuban Revolution in late 1958. There were two guerrilla columns that attacked the city, one led by Ernesto Che Guevara and the other led by Camilo Cienfuegos. Guevara's column first captured the garrison at Fomento. Then, using a bulldozer, Guevara's soldiers destroyed railroad tracks and derailed a train full of troops and supplies sent by Batista. At the same time, Cienfuegos's column defeated an army garrison at the Battle of Yaguajay not far from town. On December 31, 1958, the combined forces of Guevara and Cienfuegos (along with other revolutionaries under William Alexander Morgan) attacked Santa Clara. The battle was chaotic, the defenders were demoralized, some fought, others surrendered without a shot. By the afternoon, the city was captured. This victory for Castro's troops is seen as the decisive moment in the Cuban Revolution as Batista fled Cuba less than 12 hours later.

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Havana / Cuba Havana is the capital city, province, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba.The city proper has a population of 2.1 million inhabitants,and it spans a total of 728.26 km2 (281.18 sq mi) -- making it the largest city by area, the most populous city, and the third largest metropolitan area in the Caribbean region.The city extends mostly westward and southward from the bay, which is entered through a narrow inlet and which divides into three main harbours: Marimelena, Guanabacoa and Atarés. The sluggish Almendares River traverses the city from south to north, entering the Straits of Florida a few miles west of the bay. Havana was founded by the Spanish in the 16th century and due to its strategic location it served as a springboard for the Spanish conquest of the continent becoming a stopping point for the treasure laden Spanish Galleons on the crossing between the New World and the Old World. King Philip II of Spain granted Havana the title of City in 1592. Walls as well as forts were built to protect the old city. The sinking of the U.S. battleship Maine in Havana's harbor in 1898 was the immediate cause of the Spanish-American War. Contemporary Havana can essentially be described as three cities in one: Old Havana, Vedado, and the newer suburban districts. The city is the center of the Cuban Government, and home to various ministries, headquarters of businesses and over 90 diplomatic offices.The current mayor is Marta Hernández from the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC). In 2009, the city/province had the 3rd highest income in the country.The city attracts over a million tourists annually, the Official Census for Havana reports that in 2010 the city was visited by 1,176,627 international tourists, a 20.0% increase from 2005. The historic centre was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982. The city is also noted for its history, culture, architecture and monuments. Republican period and Post-revolution The 20th century began with Havana, and therefore Cuba, under occupation by the United States. The US occupation officially ended when Tomás Estrada Palma, first president of Cuba, took office on 20 May 1902.During the chicken Period, from 1902 to 1959, the city saw a new era of development. Cuba recovered from the devastation of war to become a well-off country, with the third largest middle class in the hemisphere. Apartment buildings to accommodate the new middle class, as well as mansions for the Cuban tycoons, were built at a fast pace. Numerous luxury hotels, casinos and nightclubs were constructed during the 1930s to serve Havana's burgeoning tourist industry. In the 1930s, organized crime characters were not unaware of Havana's nightclub and casino life, and they made their inroads in the city. Santo Trafficante, Jr. took the roulette wheel at the Sans Souci Casino, Meyer Lansky directed the Hotel Habana Riviera, with Lucky Luciano at the Hotel Nacional Casino. At the time, Havana became an exotic capital of appeal and numerous activities ranging from marinas, grand prix car racing, musical shows and parks. Havana achieved the title of being the Latin American city with the biggest middle class population per-capita, simultaneously accompanied by gambling and corruption where gangsters and stars were known to mix socially. During this era, Havana was generally producing more revenue than Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1958, about 300,000 American tourists visited the city. After the revolution of 1959, the new regime promised to improve social services, public housing, and official buildings; nevertheless, shortages that affected Cuba after Castro's abrupt expropriation of all private property and industry under a strong communist model backed by the Soviet Union followed by the U.S. embargo, hit Havana especially hard. By 1966-68, the Cuban government had nationalized all privately owned business entities in Cuba, down to "certain kinds of small retail forms of commerce" . There was a severe economic downturn after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. With it, subsidies ended, losing billions of dollars which the Soviet Union gave the Cuban government, with many believing Havana's Soviet-backed regime would soon vanish, as happened to the Soviet satellite states of Eastern Europe. However, contrary to the Soviet satellite states of Eastern Europe, Wikipedia

Spanish/Nat XFA Cuban real estate, biotechnology and tourism hold huge potential for future trade with the U-S according to students from the Marshall School of Business in Los Angeles on a study trip to the Cuban capital, Havana. The group of graduates, completing a Masters in Business Administration, chose Cuba as their study destination in order to learn about alternative economic models. Members of the group say the number one lesson for doing business under any economic system is be prepared for change. U-S legislation, as part of a current trade embargo against Cuba, does not permit business with Cuba. SOUNDBITE (English) "What we do is we try to find economies that take us outside the comfort zone. The basic underlying objective is that they learn to do business in different countries - Cuba because it is so different, it is such an enigma and gives us an opportunity to force these students to really use their basic powers of analysis" SUPER CAPTION: Carl Voight, Associate Dean, Marshall School of Business Cuba's famed anti-capitalist stand does not overrule the possibility of future trade with the U-S according to Carl Voight. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We expect that communism in Cuba in the post Castro regime will be very, very different. Already they are beginning to change the basic model, moving away from materials, budgeting and planning, to profit and revenue based planning in their economy. They are already allowing property rights, individual entrepreneurial efforts, free markets in some sense, so they are making moves towards a much more towards the middle, as it were, than what we think of as old line style Stalinistic communism." SUPER CAPTION: Carl Voight, Associate Dean, Marshall School of Business The Marshall School of Business sent a delegation to Cuba for the first time this year after obtaining a U-S government license. In five days they hope to have met with representatives of the Foreign Ministry, the Foreign Investment Ministry and the Economics Ministry, as well as the Central Bank. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Because of the situation and relations with the United States, it is going to necessarily take time, to go slowly anyway. I don't think it is just going to open up overnight and all of a sudden money starts flooding in. The first successful business investment that takes place in here is going to perk up a lot of ears." SUPER CAPTION: Steven Jones, Business Student SOUNDBITE (English) "Being from America, it is very interesting to learn how business is conducted in a socialist country and to learn the differences in how to get business done and the changes that are undergoing in Cuba currently as far as the free trade zones, and some of the new types of business arrangements to promote business in Cuba." SUPER CAPTION: James Buchanan, Business Student The Marshall School of Business delegation is the latest in a growing number of American groups visiting Cuba under former President Clinton's "people to people" policy aimed at increasing contact between average Americans and Cubans. The group returns to the United States on Sunday.
