Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy--Call for Papers 2015 Annual Meeting: "Cuba--What's Next?"


The Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy has one of the most interesting and consistent scholarship on Cuba that is straightforward and devoid of a single and relentless political agenda--something rare in Cuban studies. Here for its Mission Statement. Twenty-four volumes of the Annual Proceedings have been published. They are widely used inside and outside of Cuba by universities, research centers, government agencies and others. the conferences have been quite interesting with sometimes lively debate and an increasing presence of scholars and others from Cuba.
The theme for the 25th Annual Conference of the ASCE is "Cuba--What's Next?,"will focus on what to expect after the recent historic announcements of changes in diplomatic relations between Cuba and the US. Will Cuba make the necessary internal economic reforms to attract enough foreign direct investment to spur economic growth? When will currency reform be implemented? When will the agricultural sector be restructured to increase productivity and output? Can we expect Cuba to develop its banking system and establish well-functioning capital markets? The conference will also include a plenary session on Cuban economic and political trends as well as sessions on social, legal, and sectoral issues related to the economy and a student panel.

La conferencia de tres días sobre el tema de fondo “Cuba–¿Qué es lo que viene?”, se centrará en los cambios que se pudieran esperar después de las recientes declaraciones históricas sobre cambios en las relaciones diplomáticas entre Cuba y los Estados Unidos. ¿Hará Cuba las reformas internas necesarias para atraer la inversión extranjera e impulsar el desarrollo económico? ¿Cuándo se implementarán las reformas monetarias? ¿Cuándo se restructurará el sector agrícola para aumentar la productividad y el producto? ¿Podemos anticipar que Cuba desarrolle el sector bancario y establezca mercados de capital que operen eficientemente?
