Cuba After Castro: What Comes Next?
Nationally-recognized economist and author Todd Buchholz unravels the chaos in Cuba and its ramifications on Americans

Washington, DC (RUSHPRNEWS) June 27, 2007 How will Cuba change after Fidel Castro passes on his mantle of leadership? Will America repeal the economic sanctions that have stood for nearly 50 years?

Is there any hope for private American investors interested in staking a claim in the Caribbean’s most populous country, or will a Venezuelan alliance further promote tropical socialism in Latin America? Todd Buchholz, former White House Director for Economic Policy and author of the just-released thriller, The Castro Gene, will talk about the leadership crisis in Cuba, what the fallout will mean for American foreign policy, and what American investors can do to invest in Cuba after nearly five decades of socialism. As an award-winning Harvard economist, White House adviser and contributor to the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Forbes, Buchholz has provided expert financial and foreign policy analysis to readers and companies nationwide for the past 20 years. Buchholz can discuss:
ŸCuba After Castro: What Comes Next?Ÿ Should the

Latin America’s Lurch to the LeftŸ How to Invest in a Post-Castro

America over the past two decades. His editorials in the Wall Street Journal correctly forecast the 2001 slowdown in the
U.S., and the New York Times has turned to him to decipher terrorist threats and the job market. BusinessWeek raved about his book Market Shock, which warned of the quicksand facing the stock market.
