U.s. cuban

  1. 1. Question 1 Should the U.S. Seek to tighten the economic grip on Cuba ? if so , why ?
  2. 2. • Since the rest of the world is trading with Cuba, the U.S. embargo does not stand anywhere in the row . • It does not impact the trade of Cuba with other countries. • The complete scenario looks like a Cold War • However, the U.S. is being consistent with its policy on human rights, and who knows it just might work. • Specifically, only US, Israel and Uzbekistan are rejecting the voice of the United Nations General Assembly to seize this type of trade treatment. • More cases appear every year in the news regarding the US embargo consequences on the lives of millions of Cubans. Food, medicine and other important supplies are withheld from the citizens of this island due to its political history and recent communist upheaval that led Fidel Castro in power
  3. 3. Question 2 Should the U.S. Normalize business relations with Cuba ? if so , should the U.S. Stipulate any conditions?
  4. 4. Question 3 Assume you are Fidel Castro. What kind of trade relationship with the U.S. Would be in your best interest ?What type would you be willing to accept?
  5. 5. FIDEL CASTRO  Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz (born August 13, 1926) is a Cuban revolutionary leader who was prime minister of Cuba from December 1959 to December 1976 and then president, premier until his resignation from the office in February 2008.  Castro came to power as a result of the Cuban revolution that overthrew Fulgencio Batista, and shortly thereafter became Prime Minister of Cuba.  In 1965 he became First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and led the transformation of Cuba into a one-party socialist republic.  In 1976 he became President of the Council of State as well as of the Council of Ministers.
  6. 6. • Castro would want to save and improve Cuba’s economy with direct aid from U.S. government . • Simultaneously, he would want to prevent any influence that might cause social or political change. • If Castro allows this then further growth is possible because after, when in 2000 the export to U.S was opened then Cuba became 25th largest agricultural market for U.S with sales exceeding $400 million in U.S.
  7. 7. Question 4 How does the structure and relationships of the American political system influence the existence and specification of the trade embargo?
  8. 8. • Structurally, Congress and the President listen to lobbyists and campaign donors who oppose Castro’s regime. America also has a long standing adversarial relationship with Communist countries which makes policy changes unlikely.
