Albert Carreras and Salvador Estapé Triay

Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics and Business, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

Abstract: Before the Civil War (1936-1939), Spain had seen the emergence of firms of complex organizational forms. However, the conflict and the postwar years changed this pattern. The argument put forward in this paper is based on historical experience, the efforts will be addressed to explain the development of Spanish entrepreneurship during the second half of the twentieth century. To illustrate the change in entrepreneurship and organizational patterns among the Spanish firms during the Francoist regime we will turn to the case of the motor vehicle industry.
