  1. La economía de Cuba (1959-2009) EC1-118

    Cuba has been ruled for over 50 years by a socialist centralized system, with Fidel Castro as a supreme leader until 2007, when his brother Raul Castro took over power. Until the falling of the Berlin Wall, Cuba depended upon the Soviet Union’s economic support. After this geopolitical shift, the Caribbean country faced a new situation with light reforms that temporarily alleviated the suffering economy of Cuba. However, until 2009 there had been no real compromise, nor structural reforms necessary to transition towards a market economy. When Raul Castro sat on the driver’s seat, the possibility of political and economic change seemed closer.
