RODRIGUEZ, Raime R.; ALVES, Milena L.  and  RAMOS, Carlos A.. Ownership of the means of production in Cuba: Origins and timeliness of the economic debate. Am. Lat. Hist. Econ [online]. 2023, vol.30, n.1, e1304.  Epub Feb 03, 2023. ISSN 2007-3496.

The debate over the ownership of the means of production in Cuba had two great moments: in the 1960s with the revolutionary triumph and in the beginning of the 21st century with measures to combat the crisis. The objective of this work is to analyze both debates, their consequences on the Cuban property structure and to understand the changes in the interpretation of the island’s challenges and the variations in the dynamics of reflection of the debate itself. Evidences were found that in the early years of the socialist transition process, the effort and concerns of the debate revolved around the possibility and viability of socialism in Cuba, while the debate that emerged with the crisis of the 90s and early 2000s shows concerns and interpretations. markedly pragmatic and instrumentalist property.

Keywords : history of economic though; ownership of the means of production; Cuba.
