It’s always been understood that the first corporatism in Spain was the result of the different economic and political forces, besides the different interests of that bourgeoisie. But there were really three ingredients in economic thought that played a main role: neogremialismo, regeneracionista speech and social catholicism. By these means, the first essay of the corporativism in 1923 can be interpreted as an autoctonous process and not as the Spanish version the fascism of our Italian neighbours. The answer to the country’s situation in thought and social reality, coupled with the influence of the prevailing philosophy in the Italian system, facilitated the entry to the first corporatist regime. This brief dictatorial experience helped to cook the broth where Spanish fascism would germinate years later, and to analyze the mean inputs in the gestation of this thought is of great importance. So, we can understand that Spanish corporate organization was the result of joining two principles: state intervention in social problems and regeneration of economic life. Two principles extracted from the Spanish reality of the moment.
