Revolutionary Cuba at 50 Growth with Equity Revisited

Brundenius, Claes LU (2009) In Latin American Perspectives 36(2). p.31-48
Abstract
A balance sheet of the Cuban Revolution in terms of growth performance, equity, and the satisfaction of basic needs after 50 years is a mixed bag. Growth performance has been disappointing during most of the past 25 years, although there are today some encouraging new trends. Income distribution that was quite equal in 1985 has seen some deterioration since 1990. Agriculture has been one of the failures, and the question is raised whether current reforms are sufficient to redress this situation. The success stories of the revolution are education, health, and international solidarity.
