Throughout this chapter on the Cuban economy, we aim to provide the reader with a set of tools to analyze the current economic conjuncture of Cuba.
For this purpose, we will first present a brief introduction to the economic history of the island, outlining the most important economic milestones in Cuban economic development since the Spanish colony.
From there we will proceed to explore the current economic system of the island. Throughout this section, we will briefly summarize the main economic sectors and the most significant economic relations of present-day Cuba.
Thirdly, we attempt to discuss some important aspects of the daily life of Cuban citizens. We will do this with a brief analysis of the daily expenses of ordinary citizens.
All in all, rather than describing the current situation, it is our goal that the reader finds in this text a helpful tool for understanding the trends triggering the profound systemic transformation that is taking place currently in Cuba.
