During the period when the Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE), the Spanish Socialist Party, was established, the Spanish economy encountered several challenges, particularly in the realms of employment, investment, price stability, budget deficits, and allocation of resources. However, even without the emergence of such a movement, the government of Spain was still faced with internal conflicts and transmitted concerns (mainly acquired from the Franco regime), which impeded recovery and sustainable development. Some of these quandaries include too many protective trade policies (both domestic and international), widespread corruption, ineffective governance, destructive authoritarian leadership, inadequate transparency in capital flow reports, lack of openness to technological advancement, uncompetitive compensation scheme for employees, and consequences that are generally brought by these predicaments.
