Algunos aspectos de la transición al socialismo en economías pequeñas y abiertas: el caso de Nicaragua


  • Arturo Botero Salazar


In theory and practice "socialist" countries have been almost completely isolated economically from the rest of the world. A large part of their foreign trade is conducted amongst themselves. While this causes few problems for countries adjacent to one another, it is far more difficult for small economies which have newly entered the socialist ranks as in the case of Nicaragua. This paper argues that such adjustments cannot be made quickly and probably need not happen at all. Maintenance of the existing trade structure need not put socialism at risk, and adoption the principle of co-existence is the preferred strategy.
