The Spanish Socialist Party and the modernisation of Spain

Chapter 4 considers economic policy under the premiership of Felipe González. The PSOE's claims to have brought about Spain's modernisation rest upon the economic transformation of the country which took place during this period. Coverage of public spending on the welfare state and infrastructure are also included in the chapter. Given that the economic credibility of the government was to a degree undermined by the simultaneous loss of political credibility linked to myriad corruption allegations relating to the PSOE, the chapter also contains a section considering the phenomenon of corruption and its significance for the party.
