Communism: is the Long March over?

"The Cuban system no longer works for Cuba." These are Fidel Castro’s word to The Atlantic, an American newspaper. The last living symbol of the old Communist world doubts communism still works. At the age of 83, after illness and handing over the reigns of power to his brother Raúl, Fidel Castro has come to a conclusion that his faithful followers might find hard to take.

Jim COHEN, Professor of political Sciences at Paris VIII University and Lecturer at the IHEAL (l'Institut des Hautes Etudes de l'Amérique Latine)
Francis PISANI, Former correspondant for Le Monde in Latin America
Archibald RITTER, Professor at the department of Economics and School of International Affairs, Carleton University in Ottawa (by phone from Ottawa, Canada)
 
 
Programme prepared by Yi Song and Perrine Desplats
