  10. The five decade-old tussle between the US and Cuba began when the Caribbean nation’s revolution led to a communist government and the beginning of a Fidel Castro administration. A restriction on the flow of goods from what was previously Cuba’s biggest provider of products has caused unprecedented economic damage to the small country. The US Chamber of Commerce predicts that the embargo has cost the US economy $1.2bn a year in lost sales and exports, with the Cuban government putting its loss at $685m per annum. Fines levied on Americans bringing in Cuban goods, such as everybody’s favourite cigars, are big – meaning that very few have been tempted to test the limits of of the ban. Take a drive around Cuba, in a very old car, and the communist state still has the feel of a country operating in the 1950s. Hope is at hand though, as new talks between the US and Cuba attempting to find a way of bringing to a close the embargo. With a final decision requiring the approval of the US Congress, there could still be some Republican pushback – but we could soon begin to see the inflow of modern products to Cuba.
  11. It’s been exactly 55 years since President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s State Department imposed the first trade embargo on Cuba on Oct. 19, 1960. The original embargo covered all U.S. exports to Cuba except for medicine and some foods. President John F. Kennedy expanded the embargo to cover U.S. imports from Cuba and made it permanent on Feb. 7, 1962. Although relations between the two countries warmed this year, the embargo is still in place and an act of Congress is required to remove it. The origins of the embargo go back even further, to when Fidel Castro came to power Jan. 1, 1959. He quickly lost American support as he publicized private land and companies, and imposed heavy taxes on imports from the U.S. In the first year of Castro’s regime, U.S. trade with Cuba decreased 20%. Just before the U.S. imposed the embargo, Cuba made another jab at “the Yankee imperialists.” In a single night, Castro’s Cabinet nationalized 382 businesses, “including 105 sugar mills, 13 department stores, 18 distilleries, 61 textile factories, eight railways and all banks, save the Royal Bank of Canada and the Bank of Nova Scotia,” according to TIME. “The U.S. need not worry that a strategic embargo will damage private industry in Cuba," the magazine noted. "It no longer exists.”
