This brief essay introduces the concepts that characterize recent Cuban emigration as a result of features inherent to productive heterogeneity. It explains how the relative limits on consumption in a welfare environment are manifested, as well as how unequal exchanges affect this process. This text draws conclusions on the role of migration and compensation for structural inequalities, implicitly concluding that economic emigration is a consequence of the structural distortions of socialist productive heterogeneity.
