They’re not comparable, prior to the revolution Cuba was significantly more developed than the DR. By the late 1950s Cuban GDP levels were higher than Italy and Japan. No other countries in the Spanish Caribbean could boast anything close to that.

-Maybe so, but maybe Cuba would have stagnated anyway, like Argentina did. And, in any case, the Axis Powers were really poor in the aftermath of the Second World War.
