Excerpt from Cuba and the Cuba Railroad

Through the enterprise of The Cuba Company and of its subsidiary, the Cuba Railroad Company, the economic development of Cuba has received a notable stimulus since 1900, and the story of the growth of these two companies affords a striking example of the many rich opportunities which exist today in Cuba for profitable investment. Prior to the opening of the twentieth century, capital had not looked over-enthusiastically upon Cuba as a field for investment, because the Island was in a state of continuous ferment. For more than half a century, it will be remembered, discontent and unrest in Cuba had been increasing, and the agitation against Spanish rule had steadily grown. During the three years preceding American intervention a guerilla warfare of no small proportions had been continuously waged. In such a situation there was little to attract new capital for the Island's development, which consequently languished, so that it is not too much to say that Cuba would today be much further advanced in every way had peaceful conditions existed in the years before 1900.

The truth of this statement is evidenced by the eagerness with which capital began to pour into Cuba as soon as stable conditions were assured upon the Island.
