Fidel Castro took control of Cuba in 1959, and for the last 44 years he has presided over the transformation of Cuban economics, politics, and society. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 necessitated the return of some features of capitalism, and today Castro's Cuba is a fascinating social laboratory where capitalism and communism are both evolving.
