Metropolitan Discipline: Madrid


 

Madrid in the 90’s had a double characteristic that allowed it to establish the right approach and to build the prototype of the discipline.

Action had to be rationalized instead of continuing the usual partisan policies. Transparent rationality limits shadowy corruption. Politics fought back.
