Franco Spain Today

Gersh, Gabriel
July 1961
America;7/22/1961, Vol. 105 Issue 17, p543
The author describes life in Spain under the regime of Generalissimo Francisco Franco as of July 1961. He notes that Franco's government has mostly succeeded in rebuilding key infrastructures within the country that were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, and that the Spanish people's standard of living had gradually improved over the past 10 years. However, he adds that Spain still faces certain problems such as a difficult foreign exchange situation and political unrest among people in the regions of Asturias, Catalonia, and the Basque provinces.
