A Cuban-American Perspective

for

Change in Cuba


Perception is reality

Perception is Reality

  • Centrally Planned Economy: Cuba – North Korea – Iran

  • Cuba's past dealings with foreign investors suggest caution

  • "Use the foreigners where it suits you. Spit them out as soon as their usefulness is over,“

  • Cuba has closed more joint ventures than it has opened since adopted wide-ranging economic reforms in 2011

  • Government partners defrauded him by keeping two sets of books, then offered a ridiculously low sum for his stake

  • "Starting a joint venture in Cuba for a small or medium-sized foreign business is the same as putting a noose

  • around your neck,"


The uncertainty principle

The Uncertainty Principle

  • The communist government sometimes lets investment proposals die on the shelf without explanation

  • Experts say Cuba's approach to foreign business has been arbitrary

  • Who is in charge of what

  • Who is or will be your competition

  • wants a bigger stake. It welcomes foreign financing, once a project is operational it wants to take charge, they say.

  • A history that includes jailing foreign executives and attempting to seize greater control of businesses once they prove

  • successful.

  • But Murillo's remarks suggested the government intends to continue in at least a watchdog role "so that there is

  • no concentration of property." "What the new law establishes is that the state must always be there," he said.


Success breeds success

Success Breeds Success

  • Use the most efficient way to create examples of Successful Ventures

  • "Cuba will not go looking for foreign investment in Miami. The law doesn't prohibit it, the policy does not promote it"
