So… according to Benicio del Toro, supposedly Che Guevara ordered printing and distribution of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, after the revolution took Havana. Did a lot of people read it? Was Cuba better off? (Things look bad for the answer to that question, but remember the counterfactual… think how bad Cuba might have been without Don Quixote!) Maybe a regression discontinuity design here?
