    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.

    Women wait for public transport at 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.
