Chapter Summary

In Cuba, socialism constitutes the guarantee for the continued existence of the nation. That signifies a class option that limits the scope of action within the national arena of those tendencies which are imposed by globalisation, this so as to defend a certain alternative form of social development. The Cuban government proposes association in those areas and spheres deemed most convenient for the development of the country, in search of capital, technology, markets, management, and so forth. The foreign counterpart can count on a series of incentives, i.e., they can freely repatriate their profits without being obligated to reinvest and they have no taxes levied against their gross earnings or against the earnings of their personnel. This chapter explains the idea that it should be an economy whose reproduction tends towards socialism, but which operates with the presence of foreign capital and private property.
