Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes Eduardo's decision to move to Madrid. In the autumn of 1952, Eduardo Barreiros, still only in his early thirties, made the most important decision of his life: to move to Madrid. He did this when, at last, the overall standard of living in Spain had come to compare favorably with that obtained in 1930. Spain's exports were on the level of that year, although its imports were not. Industrial production was recovering. Eduardo went to Madrid after ten years of increasing success as an entrepreneur, inventor, builder, and road mender. He had come to see, from the success of his “dieselizations,” that he needed a bigger frame than Orense could provide: Madrid, which he had often visited when traveling between Orense and Castellón.
