18th Annual Meeting
- Annual Proceedings
The Eighteen Annual Meetings were held in Miami in early August of 2008. The meetings included papers representing a mix of new topics and approaches with traditional ones. For example, there was a panel dealing with the Cuban Blogs, and another on infrastructure, where engineers discussed along with economists current issues in Cuba dealing with power and the water/wastewater sectors.
More traditional papers covered issues of monetary duality, legal and transition issues, property claims, and US/Cuba relations. The keynote address was delivered by Mary Anastasia O’Grady from the Wall Street Journal, and Alberto Mueller addressed the reception participants.
