The latest economic giant planning to enter the Cuban market is American Express which said it would begin operations in Cuba. No specifics as to dates, etc. were offered.

Marina Norville, American Express spokeswoman, confirmed in an email to El Economista that the company also plans to begin commercial activities in Cuba but gave no further details.

The website also wrote that Visa Inc. has not yet revealed its plans for Cuba.

  • As a child living in post revolutionary Cuba I saw the ugly truth behind the propaganda. …no BS required!!

  • Stealing a girl friend could be forgiven. What can’t be forgiven is the destruction of Cuban cultural and civic society. What can’t be forgiven is the taking of property and forced work camps. As a child I saw these things, things you know nothing about

  • In fact, I first learned about the Castros & Che from Leftist propaganda & BS. They seemed like great heroes. It was only after reading dozens of other books and articles that a true picture of these men developed: that of murderous tyrants who betrayed the Cuban people. As a Canadian with no personal connection to Cuba, I can view them with a dispassionate mind, but I came to understand why so many Cubans hate them.

  • Check your reading comprehension. I criticize the Castros because I believe in democracy and freedom and they represent the opposite. If that sounds like “no apparent reason” to you then so be it. I lived in Cuba. I developed my opinions first-hand. What’s your excuse for supporting a dictatorship?
