The high levels of land use, inputs, and investment, along with the specific forms of organization and management that characterized Cuba's state extensive growth model during the 1980s.

Starting in 1993, large state farms have been converted into Basic Units of Cooperative Production with some degree of autonomy. Although first-year production results are not satisfactory, it is too early to evaluate their performance.

Castellanos, Lazaro Pena. In the case of Cuba, the 1993 period deserves separate consideration because of the changes taking place in the Cuban economy after 1989. Registered: Abstract.

"For two centuries, Cuba’s economic health has depended on sugar. This book assesses whether or not, and why, this will be so in the future."-- Sergio Díaz-Briquets, executive director, Council for Human Development

Following forty years of tension between Cuba and the United States, this study of Cuba’s agroindustry presents the results of a remarkable collaboration between researchers living in the two countries. The authors consider the prospects for the sugar industry--offering scenarios of a smaller, more efficient role in the economy--and examine reforms of the early 1990s.

The book begins with an overview of the 1959-79 period and then focuses on the next twenty years, when the industry was heavily subsidized by the Soviet Union. It discusses the future of a restructured industry, including the importance of sugar by-products and derivatives, potential competition between the United States and Cuba, and interests the countries share.

No book of this scope about the sugar industry has been published in or outside Cuba. It offers the balanced perspectives of the coauthors, who visited cooperatives, state farms, sugarcane collection centers, self-sufficiency plots, mills, refineries, alcohol distilleries, by-product enterprises, and research institutions. In the process they conducted interviews with officials and specialists at the sugar and agriculture ministries.

An important reference for those interested in the future of the sugar industry and for scholars in the areas of agricultural economics and commodity trade, this book also will be valuable for analysts following political and economic developments in Cuba.
