Description of Sandinista Economics in Practice.

In light of the Sandinistas’ 1990 electoral defeat, Sandinista economist Martínez Cuenca offers this frank and engaging assessment of the Nicaraguan revolution and its prospects for the future.

“While examining the multiple challenges of the ten years of Sandinista government, what stands out before anything else is the accumulation of new, and many times contradictory, experiences that made up the process.… This is what Dr. Alejandor Martínez Cuenca, a key member of the Sandinista government's economic team, focuses on in his book. His retrospective is needed to learn the lessons of that experience in order to look to the future of the revolution.”—Sergio Ramirez, former vice-president of Nicaragua
