Cuba: Changes, challenges, and its relationship with the United States

Listen

Guests: Peter Schechter and Michael Reid

A recent survey found that the majority of Americans favor increased ties with Cuba. This sentiment marks a major shift in attitudes toward the country. Inside Cuba, change is also taking place including the rise in private enterprise, the easing of travel laws, and much more. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll discuss Cuban-American relations, what’s happening on the island, and what the future holds for the nation. Our guests are PETER SCHECHTER, the first director of the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, and MICHAEL REID, writer of the Bello column on Latin America for The Economist and the newspaper’s writer-at-large for the region.
