Abstract

Despite the collapse of communist political societies nearly a decade ago, Cuba remains an interesting mix of economic planning, social welfare, and intellectual achievement. Though urban decay and inadequate infrastructure suggest that Cuba has failed to achieve its utopian dream of social and economic justice, a deeper analysis of the food rationing system shows the country is clearly a master of economic scarcity, of making a little go a long way.
