Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes Eduardo's agreement with the Chrysler Corporation. Love and Townsend made Eduardo an offer that Chrysler would buy 40 percent of the shares of Barreiros Diesel. Eduardo thought that such a large investment in his firm by such a rich company would assist him with his current financial difficulties. Love recognized Eduardo's great qualities, and knew that he was the only motor manufacturer who could do everything in a factory. Before this, there had never been such an arrangement between an American and a Spanish company. In Spain, this association seemed to be a really reinvigorating idea for Barreiros Diesel, a new company in an old country. The United States, still considered a new country to Europe, appeared to stand for the future.
