¿Nuevos horizontes? An Economic + Political Outlook for Cuba in 2015

¿Nuevos horizontes? An Economic + Political Outlook for Cuba in 2015 V. Joseph L. Scarpaci, Ph.D., AIAS-COFUND Senior Fellow, AIAS, Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies Aarhus University


This presentation stakes out four broad questions about contemporary Cuba: 1) What changes have occurred in Cuban domestic politics and economic management since the Cold War ended? 2) What scenarios might emerge in a post-Castro era? 3) What would be the impact of a collapse or change in political direction in Venezuela? 4) Does the U.S. trade embargo still make sense? If not, then why is it still in place, and what might make more sense? The talk draws on extensive fieldwork and secondary sources, particularly new remittance data linking the diaspora across the Florida Straits
