I have been posting about the recently concluded annual meeting of the 2018 Conference of the Association for the Study of the Cuba Economy (please see here, here, and here). I was delighted to have been part of a panel organized for the conference, entitled "Cuba's Political/Economic Culture in the Post-Raúl Period." It was organized by Gary Maybarduk, U.S. Department of State (retired), who among his other assignments served in the U.S. Mission in Havana during a critical period in U.S. Cuban relations.
Cuba's Political/Economic Culture in the Post-Raúl Period
Chair: Gary Maybarduk, U.S. Department of State (retired)
Larry Catá Backer, Coalition for Peace & Ethics and Pennsylvania State University, "The Challenge of Preserving the Revolutionary Moment in Changing Times"
Arturo López-Levy, University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley and Ralf Otto Niederstrasser, Council on Hemispheric Affairs, "Five Keys to Cuba's Presidential Change in 2018"
Luis Carlos Battista, Center for Democracy in the Americas, Washington, D.C., "Cuba’s Post-
Revolutionary Foreign Policy"
Gary Maybarduk, U.S. Department of State (retired), "Cuba's Political and Economic
Arteriosclerosis: It is not just the Castros."
The panel was recorded; the video of which may be accessed HERE. In the meantime this post includes the PowerPoints of my presentation: The Challenge of Preserving the Revolutionary Moment in Changing Times. The presentation considered three questions:(1) what adjustments might Cuba have to undertake if it is to embed itself within the structures of global trade and finance?; )2) to what extent is Cuba is disposed to consider these possible reforms?; and (3) what may be possible in the aftermath of the U.S. Presidential election of 2016?
