Description

This project will compare the development strategies of Cuba and Vietnam from the period following the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union to the removal of American economic sanctions under Clinton. The project will evaluate the differing policies of each state to attempt to determine why Vietnam was able to achieve a greater macroeconomic role in a globalized economy than Cuba, while both remained communist states in a post-Cold War global regime, and without the support of the Soviet Union.
