Cuba : la croisée des chemins


  • Isaac Johsua


[eng] Isaac Johsua — Cuban Crossroads.. This article is devoted to the recent evolution of the Cuban economy. It describes the violent drop in activity following the collapse of the USSR and presents reforms introduced during the first-half of the 90s. It then exposes the following (incomplete) redressing and underlines the price that had to be paid to obtain as much. After interrogations on the perennial span of the « special period », the author concludes on the racecourse manifestly engaged in Cuba, as characterised by the negative windfalls of the new model on one hand, and the positive consequences stimulated by economic growth, on the other.
