Resumo

Desde que en agosto de 1994 se adoptara en Cuba la dualidad monetaria, han convivido en la Isla dos monedas: el peso cubano convertible (CUC) y el peso cubano moneda nacional (CUP). Existiendo un doble tipo de cambio fijo entre CUC y CUP y entre CUC y dólar estadounidense (USD), en realidad también existe un tipo de cambio fijo entre CUP y USD y, consecuentemente, parece necesaria la unificación monetaria. El problema radica en fijar el tipo de cambio de la moneda que pervivirá (CUP) frente a la eliminada (CUC). En este artículo se realiza una revisión de los aspectos más interesantes de esta circunstancia, y se proporcionan argumentos sobre cuál sería el tipo de cambio más adecuado entre el peso cubano moneda nacional y el peso cubano convertible.
