Communism- A system that supports common ownership of the means of production. About 160 years ago, german philosopher Karl Marx introduced a new type of economic system. It promised "From each according to his ability to each according to his need". Marx was the founder of communism, an economic and political system in which people would work together to produce goods and share them fairly. More than 11 million people live on the island of Cuba. Until 1957, American companies invested heavily in Cuban suger, tabbaco, and fruit plantation. However, they took the profits home. Most Cubans were very poor with little access to education or medical care. In 1958-1959 Fidel Castro's communist forces siezed the island and all american businesses and property on the island. These are some countries that have a democratic system of government. In Cuba, the government decides what to produce and how to distribute goods and services.
