I’m not sure he’ll EVER die, but for the sake of argument, what are the prevailing theories of what Cuba’s future will be?
Cuba remains controlled by communists, limping along until it limps out.
Cuba goes to some sort of democratic government, and investment money from the US and other countries will POUR into the island, making it the most wealthy resort island in the region.
Cuba will settle in to a civil war.
My personal bet is #2. It just seems to make so much sense. It was a mecca for investment and tourism before Castro took over, and I think US investors in particular, would love to pour into Havana. I think Cuba is a gold mine waiting to happen, and I wouldn’t mind investing in a nice beachfront condo myself given the opportunity.
And I think the country’s economy would crank along just fine after some intial bumps. But they are sitting pretty in a great location.
Are there any post-Castro plans in place once he passes to keep things status quo?
