Un Zaibatsu fuera de lugar: los orígenes del Grupo Fierro (1870‐1939)
AbstractThis work is focused on the origins and starting of Fierro’s Group. Ildefonso Fierro (1882‐1961) was one of the most prominent businessmen of Franco’s Regime. Fierro’s case study presents two features that distinguish it from other Spanish family firms born in the first half of the twentieth century: its high degree of diversification and its peculiar financial history. Prior to the commencement of the Franco dictatorship, Fierro has managed to form a diversified family business and has bought a bank to finance his industrial activity. This article analyzes how he achieved it and compares its path with that of the Japanese Zaibatsu (paper text in Spanish)
