Paolo Spadoni presents new book on Cuban economy

March 28th, 2014
12:30pm

Location
Greenleaf Conference Room

Please join us for a lecture by Dr. Paolo Spadoni, assistant professor of political science at Georgia Regents University, on March 28th at 12:30pm. Spadoni will present his newest book Cuba’s Socialist Economy Today: Navigating Challenges and Change (Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2014). Lunch will be served and an RSVP is required.

What does Cuba’s socialist economy look like today, after a half-century of fluctuating strategies? Are the reforms instituted by Raúl Castro improving living conditions and boosting production and efficiency? What challenges does the government face in crafting policies to address the country’s most critical problems? Paolo Spadoni offers deeply informed answers to these questions as he traces the evolution of Cuba’s economy, explores the current state of affairs in key sectors, and assesses the likelihood that government efforts to cure Cuba’s economic woes will be successful.

Paolo Spadoni is currently an assistant professor of political science at Georgia Regents University. He is a former Post-doctoral Research Fellow for the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (2008-2009). He is the author of Failed Sanctions: Why the US Embargo Against Cuba Could Never Work (University Press of Florida, 2010). He received his PhD from the University of Florida.
