Economic Recovery to date the Government took measures to develop and lift the country from this crisis. Among the measures was the increased investment of foreign capital, foreign exchange shops (in USD) and increasing agricultural production through agricultural markets, also controlled by intermediaries. To avoid conflicts increased the monetary weight use to be convertible through the main stores (those that are not in national currency). In addition, an increasing number of industries, production and overall economy, but still offers great challenges. The sugar industry, once the main source of foreign exchange, is now the third row (with prospects of lower back), preceded by the nickel industry and tourism.The macroeconomy has improved significantly, but still family economies have incomes below the basic purchasing power to buy food to enable a proper diet, however this difficulty is alleviated to some extent by the supply card for which the Cuban family receives highly subsidized food prices. Some other basic needs are met to some extent by small businesses permitted on the island that enhance income per capita. In most of the Cuban economy can not speak of comfort. The greater involvement in families is less culture or education or elderly people living alone for various reasons, anyway, it makes an effort to try to monitor these cases to prevent them from falling into social problems.Social inequalities have increased somewhat due to the difference in income Cubans working for the state (the majority of the population) and those who do their own, who in some cases even get in one day’s salary of an average Cuban worker. The low productivity of the country coupled with the blockade and the huge investment in education and health makes public spending on salaries were not satisfied to leave the bulk of the population, therefore, a portion of the population participates in some form or other activities more or less illegal, ranging from hard work on their own without licenses, through the illegal trade are not essential at exorbitant prices in the shops, to trade unscrupulous basic necessities such as food or medicines (often of dubious provenance).There is an obvious neglect of agricultural production, the majority of workers part of a huge bureaucracy or services, error is trying to repair the entry of Ra l Castro in power. This effort is aimed at increasing production and food dives. Other social sector with an above-average income is that of artists, scientists and athletes. The problem of salary in Cuba is making many young people stop working to pursue independent business, others choose to emigrate or to engage in live of remittances. Since 2008 the government persuades the people to improve their efficiency and productivity and has in mind a restructuring of the salary to be awarded as a result, reforms have not felt in the country but plans to establish poco.Esto little in response the apparent egalitarianism that had taken the Cuban salary of causing the perceived difference as between a doctor and a cleaning worker is minor.As in all Communist countries, especially at the end of World War II, the Cuban government limited the departure of foreign nationals to Cuba with strong regulations, which are justified on the huge investments the government makes education citizens, and somehow avoiding the brain drain and flight of human capital. Anyway this creates all sorts of unrest, being denounced in international forums as a violation of Human Rights. He has also produced a social phenomenon in which migration is sought through legal means such as marriage to foreigners or work outside the country staying in the service of the Cuban state. In recent years, with the rebirth of the Left in Latin America, the Cuban Revolution has increased its leadership role and support, almost disappeared in the 90s.The Cuban government currently developing relations of all kinds (economic, political, military and social) with the government of Hugo Ch vez of Venezuela and the government’s coca growers’ leader Evo Morales in Bolivia and with the government of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in Argentina, Correa in Ecuador and Ortega in Nicaragua. In 2006, Fidel Castro fell ill and delegated the command to his brother Raul for the first time in 47 years since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
