Abstract
In this paper, we present and discuss the rent-seeking process which occurred during Franco’s regime in Spain (1939-75). Once the Civil War (1936-39) was over, those who won the war (militia-man, right-wing factions) took control of the key positions in the new government. That meant the transfer of rents from the budget to veterans of war and their relatives, fuelled by the creation of an increasingly strong and well organised interest’s group. The author takes a public choice approach and is inspired by a similar study by R. Holcombe on the American Civil War.
