The case study regarding the United States and Cuban Trade is on page 280 of the International Business text book and begins by asking the question should the United States seek to tighten the economic grip on Cuba and why?

Cuba now draws sympathy from many other countries throughout the world and if the United States continues to tighten the economic grip in Cuba, this would appear that the United States was non-sympathetic to Cuba. With this to consider, then yes, the United States should not seek to tighten the economic grip on Cuba. With a stronger economy one would hope that this could help bring an end to the violation of human rights in Cuba. The next question to consider is should the United States normalize business relations with Cuba and if so, should the United States stipulate any conditions? This is a tricky question with a lot of debate. Many believe that the United States should normalize business relations with Cuba because of Cuba’s high qualified workforce. One should also consider that a normalized business relationship with Cuba could bring licensed organizations and grants to Cuba allowing for academic, cultural, and humanitarian travel to the country. This students thought is that the United States should continue trading with Cuba to help enrich its economy but should keep its distance from Cuba regarding normalization of business relations. There is a lot of unwanted moral behavior and violation of human rights in Cuba that would not be tolerated in the United States. If such an agreement was made to normalize business relations with Cuba, there definitely should be stipulations to help control some of the political unrest between to two countries. Assumptions for Castro as a leader should be to want an agreement to trade and
