How Can We Talk about a New Paradigm in Development approaches for Cuba?

Over the last couple of days, many of us have heard or read diverse speculations re the latest changes that have affected Cuba, with the “temporary” transfer of power from “Fidel” to his brother “Raul”, see here.

In the lights of those recent developments, futures for Cuba still remain opaque as the country keep experiencing steep economic decline in a process that can be summed up as de-development. As a matter of fact, given the dire economic realities lingering over the country these due to geopolitical and macro-economic factors that have created unbalances in growth and development, I cannot help thinking about the prospects linked with new structural linkages to reposition development assistance, and funding. Are these Myths or realities? These questions or perspectives evolve within a framework that call for more inquiries into the process of international regulatory frameworks, and the current nature of global economic governance under which the role of development policy have to weigh the external factors, and the structural patterns behind funding in development projects.
