Reconciliation: 78 Reasons to End the U.S. Embargo of Cuba is an exciting and timely book, with up-to-the minute facts about ecomic and legal issues w being debated in Congress and throughout America. Recent massive oil finds and the tourist boom have made Cuba a hot topic-and an opportunity for jobs and business. The astonishing results of thousands of hours of discussions and research in the US and Cuba by a major policy analyst are presented in clear, easily readable form, with references. Much of this material is unfamiliar, as it was covered up for decades by special interests. Oil & gas, medical, travel, gen-tech and other opportunities in Cuba are about to explode-and offer huge opportunities for the US... or its Asian & European competitors! The book lists practical and compelling reasons for the expected end of the Embargo and travel restrictions, such as: - the recent discoveries of oil and gas (which could be worth over $1.5 trillion); - opportunities for billions in US agricultural sales; - over 200,000 jobs for Americans within a decade; - increasing US GDP (at a time of stagnation); - ending the expenses of the embargo (many hundreds of millions); - and ending the global PR nightmare. A must-read book and call to Action for America!
