Watch LIVE Today: Post-Castro Cuba: What future will Raúl leave behind?

The American Enterprise Institute is holding a panel discussion today in Washington D.C. on the future of Cuba after the eventual demise of the brutal Castro dictatorship. The event will begin at 10:00 am and you can watch it live on streaming video below.

Post-Castro Cuba: What future will Raúl leave behind?

About This Event

Since assuming leadership of Cuba, Raúl Castro's half-measures to jump-start Cuba's bankrupt economy have generated much debate. Are his reforms promising moves toward a so-called "mixed" economy, à la China or Vietnam? Are his “reforms” even reforms? Many conclude that Raúl was miscast as a transitional figure and that real change must wait for day when the Castro brothers exit the stage.

What sort of economic model will Raúl leave behind? And what strategies can restore genuine economic opportunity and freedom to the Cuban people? Please join us for a discussion of these topics and more, keynoted by Castro scholar, author and former U.S. intelligence analyst Brian Latell.
