Event Description

Cuba: Decadencia y rehabilitaci6n is a wise work, written from an optimistic perspective, full of Cubanness and realism. The essence of Jorge Sanguinetty's economic and sociological thinking about Cuba is masterfully captured in this excellent selection of reflections throughout a long period. This work demonstrates the depth of his capacity for analysis, as well as his appeal to a broad public, both Cuban and from other countries. Part of the author's success is that, unlike other authors who regularly assess the last pirouettes of Cuban economic policy, Sanguinetty dwells primarily on the misery of the political economy and the institutions that operate such changes on the island.
