    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 ...

    The improvement of relations between the U.S. and Cuba will continue to move forward even though the process toward normalization will move slowly. Mark Entwistle, founding partner of Acasta Capital and former Canadian Ambassador to Cuba, believes Cuba will be moved off the State Department's list of countries that support terror. He also believes that the push toward improved relations with Cuba will not end even after President Obama leaves office. As American businesses consider investing in Cuba, they must prepare for dealing with potential corruption in the country, particularly theft.

    (30 Oct 2017) Cuba has received two billion US dollars of foreign investments so far this year, the island's Minister of Commence said Monday. Rodrigo Malmierca said such a figure is a sign that despite the US' attempts to isolate the island nation, Havana continues to be of growing interest to foreign investors. Malmierca inaugurated the 35th International Fair in Havana, Cuba's most important business forum, and said foreign investments have reached the energy, tourism and mining sectors. The Cuban government has said it needs some 2.5 billion US dollars of foreign investments annually to develop its model, which faces liquidity difficulties, high import prices and a crisis facing its main trading partner, Venezuela.

    Spanish/Nat In the Cuban capital, Havana, all housing is state-owned. So, if a Habanero wants to move house, they have to swap homes with someone else. The exchanges take place in a square in Havana. More than 2.2 (m) million people live in Cuba's capital, Havana. And the population of the city is growing. Last year, the government estimated 27-thousand people moved to Havana. Living conditions in the city are poor, and have deteriorated since Cuba lost its financial support from the former Soviet Union. The housing in the city is all state-owned.

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.

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 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.

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 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

The improvement of relations between the U.S. and Cuba will continue to move forward even though the process toward normalization will move slowly. Mark Entwistle, founding partner of Acasta Capital and former Canadian Ambassador to Cuba, believes Cuba will be moved off the State Department's list of countries that support terror. He also believes that the push toward improved relations with Cuba will not end even after President Obama leaves office. As American businesses consider investing in Cuba, they must prepare for dealing with potential corruption in the country, particularly theft. He spoke with TheStreet's Rhonda Schaffler at the Cuba Opportunity Summit in New York.

(30 Oct 2017) Cuba has received two billion US dollars of foreign investments so far this year, the island's Minister of Commence said Monday. Rodrigo Malmierca said such a figure is a sign that despite the US' attempts to isolate the island nation, Havana continues to be of growing interest to foreign investors. Malmierca inaugurated the 35th International Fair in Havana, Cuba's most important business forum, and said foreign investments have reached the energy, tourism and mining sectors. The Cuban government has said it needs some 2.5 billion US dollars of foreign investments annually to develop its model, which faces liquidity difficulties, high import prices and a crisis facing its main trading partner, Venezuela. This year's fair, which attracted 3,700 businesses from 70 countries, attracted the least amount of US businesses in recent years since former President Obama's policy of normalisation with Cuba. President Donald Trump has adopted a tougher line on relations with Havana. Maria Conchita Mendez with the Alabama Port Authority said 17 US firms were at the fair although only half a dozen set up stands. The 2016 fair attracted some 40 US businesses.

Si cette ouverture est synonyme de rentrée d'argent pour cet Etat des Grandes Antilles, destination touristique prisée, elle ne profite qu'à une minorité de la population. Le quotidien des Cubains est toujours aussi difficile. Le salaire moyen s'élève à 15 dollars par mois. Soumis au rationnement, ils ont juste de quoi s'acheter les denrées alimentaires de base. La combine et la débrouille sont indispensables pour survivre, comme en témoigne Rosemary, une institutrice. La police est omniprésente, la surveillance permanente. Quant à la liberté d'expression et les droits de l'homme, ils ne sont pas à l'ordre du jour. Enquete exclusive - Cuba : ouverture ou dictature ? _

Spanish/Nat In the Cuban capital, Havana, all housing is state-owned. So, if a Habanero wants to move house, they have to swap homes with someone else. The exchanges take place in a square in Havana. More than 2.2 (m) million people live in Cuba's capital, Havana. And the population of the city is growing. Last year, the government estimated 27-thousand people moved to Havana. Living conditions in the city are poor, and have deteriorated since Cuba lost its financial support from the former Soviet Union. The housing in the city is all state-owned. So if Habaneros want to move to a new house, they have to swap their home for someone else's. The practice is called 'permutando' - house-swapping. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "'Permutar' means to change the place where you live. If you live in one place and want to live in another. Q: Why don't people sell their houses and buy another one? A: They can't. Q: Why? A: Well, because it is a state-controlled business." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop This is the square where people meet to try to swap houses. But it's not easy to reach an agreement. Often, the house offered by one person is not necessarily what the other person wants. People can wait for months for the right house to come along. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "This is what I have. This is the area where I live. This is what I want and this is the area where I am interested in living. Q: Why do you want to move? A: Family matters. I have a daughter living somewhere else. I have a sister in New Vedado and my mother also is moving to New Vedado and for that reason I want to swap houses. Q: Will it be a straight swap? A: Yes. One for one. Q: How long have you been waiting here for a house? A: Well, for about two months." SUPER CAPTION: Luis Peres, Havana resident Tamara Goncalves has a one bedroom house and is looking for a home with at least two bedrooms. What makes her saga remarkable is that she's already swapped homes eleven times. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I do house-swapping because I find it entertaining. My sons say that this is my hobby. And I agree because if I live in a house for one, two years, I get bored and want to change houses. That's why I want to move out now, and I will do it again and again." SUPER CAPTION: Tamara Goncalves, Havana Resident But, for many people, they house-swap in order to improve their accommodation. The only problem is, few people want to exchange their house if it is bigger and in better condition than the one they are offered.

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.
