This chapter looks at the process of bringing the collectivized enterprises under government control. Doing so would weaken the power of the revolutionary committees and restore to the state some of its economic functions. Once again, Giral's liberal Republican government began the process by approving a decree providing for the sequestration by the state of industrial and commercial enterprises whose owners or managers had abandoned them. Other decrees would follow shortly afterward. Once again, however, conflict would arise from differing opinions within the government as to the restoration of its economic power. The Communists, for one, were in favor of nationalization, while the Anarchosyndicalists advocated centralization—or socialization, as they called it—under trade-union management of entire branches of production.

Keywords:   state economics, Communists, Anarchosyndicalists, centralization, nationalization, socialization, collectivized enterprises, Giral government
