Where is Cuba's economy headed?

On the next Your Call, we continue our Agenda for a New Economy series by talking about the future of Cuba. The Cuban government recently announced plans to lay off half a million state employees. That's about 10 percent of the state workforce. Who is going to be impacted? What are the economic realities in Cuba today?
