Today the program continues its “Conversations in Cuba” series with two Cuban economists who talk about the challenges faced by a communist island in a capitalist world. One of the biggest problems Cuba is confronting today is a two-tiered economy: The peso economy for ordinary Cubans, and the dollar economy for foreign visitors, and those Cubans who work in the tourist industry.

Guests:

  • Pedro Monreal, professor and researcher at The Center for the Study of International Economy at the University of Havana
  • Julio Carranza, professor and researcher at The Center for the Study of the Cuban Economy at the University of Havana
