information here. You could also look at Wikipedia. I've often heard people say that Cuba is stuck in the 50's. I have had friends visit Cuba and extend extensive capital goods to the agricultural community so their economy could grow. The Cubans do not want the technology as they say it will cause unemployment. I think they are right unless the Cubans learn new skills. Learning new skills is hard and often unrewarding. Cuba's economy would benefit greatly from new equipment and they would grow quickly, but the Cubans say they are happy as things are. Is there a lesson to be learned from them?
