Socialism in Cuba provides limited food rations (rice, beans, oil, scarce meat, milk for kids under age 7), and marginal housing.  Average wages equate to about $20 a month, so there isn’t a lot of room for the extras that Europeans and Americans typically consume.  The media is very controlled, including social media.  The internet is slow, censored, low bandwidth with limited connections permitted (educator, journalist, etc).  Cuba has been shielded from the developed nation consumer mentality.
