  Add to Calendar 2017-03-21 11:00 2017-03-21 13:00 Europe/Paris Fascist Politics and Autarkic Economy in a Compared Perspective: the Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale (I.R.I.) and the Instituto Nacional de Industria (I.N.I.), 1933-1959

The research project is centred on the Spanish economic polices from 1937 to 1959., which guided the creation and development of the Instituto Nacional de Industria (the Spanish State own company, I.NI hereafter). Particular attention will be paid to the similarities, or differences, between these polices and those of Fascist Italy during the 1930s until 1950s, especially as referred to in Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale (the Italian State owned company, I.R.I hereafter). I aim at capturing the analogies between the two public entities, I.N.I and I.R.I, through the analysis of their financial ratios, statues, sector investment and production. If it is true that, in Italy, different economic policies were applied all along from the thirties to the fifties, some of them were autarkic. I.R., being a reflection of the preferences of the regimeʼs will, mirrored the evolution of Italian economic policies. Since the different roles of I.R.I. and its adaptation to the decision making process of the Italian regime have not been considered by the literature that dealt with I.N.I, especially with respect to the classification of the autarkic models that I.R.I was called to apply, my research attempts to identify which I.R.I. rolesʼ to identify which of I.R.I. has been between 1939 until 1943. Particular attention will be, also, dedicated to explain why the creation of I.N.I. was inspired by the Italian model of I.R.I. The ultimate purpose of my project will be to provide a new insight on the economic policies of the First Francoism whether the postwar policy in Spain was a continuity of the ʼwar autarkicʼ policy of the Civil War, and not only a ʼnormal autarkicʼ policy.
