Cuban Economists on the Cuban Economy

José Luis RodrÍguez

University Press of Florida

José Luis Rodríguez provides a broad overview of the major macroeconomic changes in Cuba over the last twenty years. His historical approach necessitates a substantial review of the nation’s macroeconomy before 1990 in order to make clear the starting point that was so important in determining what types of changes were both possible and necessary during the Special Period. He reviews chronologically the problems Cuba faced and the constantly changing policies it adopted to survive, and then to recover, economically, as well as the subsequent structural changes that were necessary. He pays particular attention to the dialectic of problem/policy–response/new problem-the new problem emerging as the old one is mitigated. He concludes with a substantial discussion of the issues on the table today that must be addressed in order for Cuba to move forward.
