    A woman buys food at a stall in the village of Campo Florido, near Havana August 5, 2010. The Cuban government plans to reduce its role in small businesses, but continue to direct a centralized economy that eschews markets and private property, a Cuban official said on Sunday. Economy Minister Marino Murillo said the communist-led island is "updating," not reforming its fragile economy and does not plan to copy the market socialism of China or Vietnam.

    Workers carry a metal mesh as they build a building in the Cacique Tiuna Commune in Caracas July 9, 2010. Tucked into forested hills in southwest Caracas, a red-brick housing complex for the poor is a testing ground for Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's latest step to build socialism in the Latin American oil producer. The phalanx of simple five-storey apartment blocks, some still being built, anchors the "Cacique Tiuna Commune". This is one of a network of "socialist communes" that Chavez and his supporters want to extend across the nation in their political and legislative offensive to dismantle "bourgeois" capitalism.

    Colombia's Trade Minister Luis Guillermo Plata speaks to reporters in Bogota after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to delay a vote on a free trade agreement April 10, 2008. The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to indefinitely delay action on a free trade agreement with Colombia, a move the White House said it feared would kill the pact. Colombia has received billions in U.S. aid to help combat its guerrilla insurgency and cocaine trade and is Washington's closest ally in a region where left-wing leaders are touting socialism to counter U.S. free-market proposals.

Since Fidel Castro first handed over power provisionally to his younger brother in July 2006 due to intestinal surgery from which he never fully recovered, calm has descended on Cuba. Officials insist Raul Castro will strive to improve living conditions without adopting the market socialism of China, though some Cuba watchers believe he will have little choice in the long run.
