But there is a feasible alternative for the country. autarkic “socialist” economic development won’t fit for Cuba because the country still depends on oil imports.   A similar discrepancy exists between socialist Cuba and its capitalist Latin American neighbors with regard to child mortality rates.

Rather, the Cuban economy is organized along state.
