Abstract

This article considers the importance of sugar in the Cuban economy in the first twelve years after the Revolution. Two major emphases in policy can be identified. From 1959 the revolutionary leaders attempted to diversify away from sugar, but with only limited success. By 1970 the failure of this policy was evident and a second approach, which placed sugar in the forefront of economy policy, was introduced.

Resumen

«Azúcar y Revolución» estudia el comportamiento del sector azucarero durante los primeros doce años de la Revolución cubana; desde 1959, hasta la denominada Zafra de los Diez Millones (1970). Las relaciones entre azúcar y Revolución atraviesan por varias fases que, en general, pueden sintetizarse en dos. Entre 1959 y 1970, los líderes revolucionarios intentaran implementar una política de industrialización y diversificación económica marcadamente antiazucarera, que la realidad económica impondrá ir abandonando paulatinamente. En 1970, el fracaso de esta política es evidente y el azúcar vuelve a ocupar un primer plano en la estrategia económica cubana.
