    Only when Castro drops dead and someone with a democratic mind takes over, will Communism officially die in Cuba. To be honest though, Cuba in recent years has turned into a bit more of a socialist state, but still a lot of people are poor and the economy is terrible there, infrastructure is basically non existent. I think when Castro finally gives it all up and lets his people have a democratic election, things like trade embargo's will be lifted and Cuba will start to become more involved in the importing and exporting of goods which will bolster their economy.
