FY 2014/2015 Research Topic: C-03
Revolutionary Cuba’s Quest for Survival: Comparison with Vietnam

Outline

Cuba has maintained a single party system and centrally planned economy for the past 54 years, and it restarted economic reform in 2011. We think that it will be useful to compare the case of Cuba with Vietnam, which has launched more drastic economic reforms toward a market oriented economy while keeping its single party system. The present Cuban government has been reported to have taken the case of Vietnam into consideration when making its reforms. On the other hand, Cuba and Vietnam have great geopolitical and historical differences. This project aims to analyze Cuba's current situation from economic, and social, and political points of view. Two Cuban economists will join the project, and we will look at the political regimes as well as the macro-economic and micro-economic theories.
