From the Triumph of the Revolution through the Special Period

(p.62) 2 The Evolution of Cuba’s Macroeconomy
Cuban Economists on the Cuban Economy

Oscar U-EchevarrÍa Vallejo

University Press of Florida

Oscar Echevarría’s treatment of the macroeconomy is complementary to the preceding treatment by José Luis Rodríguez. Echevarría provides chronological discussion of the major macroeconomic changes of Cuba’s last twenty years and presents the historical methodology that necessitates a substantial review of Cuba’s macroeconomy before 1990 in order to understand the starting point that was so important in determining what types of changes were possible and necessary during the Special Period. In contrast to Rodríguez, who focuses on dialectic, Echevarría focuses on structural changes. Like Rodríguez, he ends with a valuable discussion of the issues on the table today that must be addressed in order for Cuba to move forward.
