Labor Force and Economic Changes in Cuba


  • Gonzalez Corzo, Mario
  • Vidal Alejandro, Pavel
  • Perez Villanueva, Omar E.


The labor adjustments and the economic changes present limitations, and if left unchanged, are likely to hinder Cuba’s prospects for successful economic reforms. The present article examines recent labor adjustments in Cuba and presents a balanced analysis of the new economic measures. This article demonstrates that while recent labor force and economic changes in Cuba represent a step in the right direction, these reform measures face a series of challenges that will require profound policy transformations and greater flexibility on the part of the Government.
