History of the Caixa Geral de Depósitos, 1910-1974 (2nd phase)

History of the Caixa Geral de Depósitos, 1910-1974 (2nd phase)

Around the time of the republican revolution of 1910, the Caixa Geral de Depósitos was one of the top institutes of the Portuguese public financial system. That position of importance implied a huge interest on the part of the national governments in directing the destinies of this public institution. That attention was maintained throughout the periods of the Republic and the New State, analysed in this volume. In this way, the history of the Caixa is also a history of the ways of acting of the Portuguese governments in the financial area. And it is a part of the history of national policy with special significance, perhaps even more than what happens in countries with, at the time, more developed financial institutions and with less serious problems in connection with the financing of government activity.
