    As trade grows, their affluence would grow and so you'd have a market for at first low end consumer goods, better cell phones, computers than they have now etc.

    Smaller businesses would probably be the go-between for exporting and so you'd have an economic impact there, I'm not saying it would be gigantic, but every little helps.

    How so? both involved property deeds that originated from a time when one nation was subjugated by the other

    First they would need to do as China has done, partially let go of their Communist doctrine and lean toward a Capitalist economy. Them maybe. As it is now, most people are poor.

    Opening a dialogue, then trade and then travel starts that process.

    The regime knows its days are numbered.

    I'm fairly confident, that america is safer then Cuba... I moved to america for a reason, I'm tired of americans taking there safety and lifestyle for granted... Seriously you guys have everything you could ever want in excess the crime is very uncommon and tends to only be in poor neighborhoods, you have to be daft to not find work here... why do alot of you want to **** on your own government so often? Yes the USA has it's issues that needs to be sorted out but it is miles safer here then most of the world.... Have you ever feared for your life in your own home? You're just sitting in your house on a computer wasting your day away with no fears of not being able to eat, not being able to find work, not being able to be bitten by some sort of creature.... Cuba is not safer then the USA in my opinion....

    Follow the money on Cuba. See what big money was most affected when Castro took over. See if those same economic forces still exist and could continue to force the politics that support the embargo... Let's see, the Mafia, US Sugar, Rockefeller fruit and banking Corporations, Kennedy Rum interests, etc. Do your homework and it will be easy to understand, but will never be right.

    My father has been there on several missionary trips and told me how poor the people were and how little the government gives them to survive each month. Even the fruits, vegetables and livestock they grow become property of the Government. Nothing is theirs.
