In the wake of Fidel Castro's death all eyes are on what the future holdsfor the Cuban economy. The hope is another revolution will be sparked: a push by the populace for a more open market economy. President Obama's agreement to normalize relations with the communist island nation has proved to be a catalyst for change. It remains to be seen if the Trump administration will continue to maintain detente with Cuba, or reverse course.

Today, President-elect Donald Trump threatened in a tweet that he would terminate the deal that reopened Cuban-American relations if Havana—known for human rights violations— is unwilling to negotiate a better agreement for its citizens, Cuban Americans and the U.S. as a whole.
