Cooperative Cuba

By Cliff DuRand

Cuba is poised to be the first country in the world to have cooperatives make up a major portion of its economy. It is a laboratory for a new society. This is the conclusion of Cliff DuRand, who has just returned from three weeks in Havana looking into the transformations now under way there. Dr. DuRand, a co-founder of the Center for Global Justice, will report on the current renovation of socialism that began two years ago and is still unfolding. The expansion of self-governing cooperatives, both in agriculture and in urban services and industry, is a key part of these changes as the state withdraws from the complete control of the economy it once exercised.
