What To Do About Cuba With Or Without Castro

WHAT TO DO ABOUT CUBA--WITH OR WITHOUT CASTRO

In "Getting ready for Cuba after Castro" (Economic Viewpoint, May 24), Rudi Dornbusch's thesis is that Fidel Castro Ruz is through. He reasons that the Havana regime cannot last, now that Russian subsidies are gone.

Cuba is substantially an agrarian society. Agrarian societies can last a long time without the trappings of modern industrialization. If the estimated 40%-to-50% drop in gross national product during 1991-92 didn't sink the government, then the gradually improving growth is not likely to provide a renewed push for ousting Castro. The U.S. needs, therefore, to extend the same diplomatic relationships we extend to most countries with which we differ ideologically.
