Updating Cuba's Economic Model: The Role for Social and Solidarity Economy Practices

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cuba has been transforming its economic model since 2011, and re established relations with the U.S. in 2014. By engaging in an active question and answer format we will explore what these profound changes mean for a socialist economy and the challenges of protecting the social gains of the Cuban revolution while creating a more robust, efficient economy Our goals are to provide a realistic appraisal of events, often not available in US media, and to foster opportunities of exchange between Cuban and US practitioners of New Economy strategies.
