A few good reads

Over the weekend, I read a few great pieces about Latin America; two on Cuba and one on US policy in the region. I don’t have much to add but I highly recommend all three.

The Blind Spot– David Rothkopf (Foreign Policy)
A harsh rebuke of American foreign policy in the region which he characterizes as outdated, negligent, and as a result, defined by its blunders and crises.

Cuba’s Economy: Money Starts to Talk (The Economist)
Reporting on some of the reforms on the island and their economic effects.

Cuba After Communism: The Economic Reforms That Are Transforming the Island– Julia E Sweig and Michael J Bustamante (Foreign Affairs)
A more in-depth look at the economic reforms in Cuba under Raúl and the political pressures both on and off the island that are driving the pace and shape of the reforms.
