Buyer Beware

By Jaime Suchlicki

Jaime Suchlicki was the founding Executive Director of the North-South Center, and is currently the Director of the University's Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies. Professor Suchlicki is the author of Cuba: From Columbus to Castro, now in its sixth edition, and Mexico: From Montezuma to the Rise of the Pan.  He's also the Director of Cuba: From Columbus to Castro, a 26-minute video on the history of Cuba narrated by Andy Garcia.

Last week, The Cipher Brief sat down with Jaime Suchlicki, the Director of the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies at the University of Miami, to discuss the impact of the recent changes to U.S.-Cuba relations.  His primary advice to U.S. businesses:  “caveat emptor,” which Professor Suchlicki translated as “beware before you put your money.”
