Miguel Anxo Bastos states that the lack of capacity and failure of the State in the management of the Public Administration is due to two factors: lack of economic calculation and lack of cost and benefit because the criteria that are managed within that area are merely accounting and There is no one to assume the benefits and losses. In addition, there is no saving incentive or price knowledge, as is the case in private companies.
Also, he says that the State as a socialist entity has no market indicators, tends to expand due to political issues and is increasingly involved in the labor market, the environment, historical heritage and thus increases its power of action in all acts of real life, restricting individual freedoms through the monopolization of social areas and forced and coercive financing. It also explains some arguments on this subject by the authors Friedrich A. Hayek, Max Weber and Ludwig von Mises and Cyril Northcote Parkinsons.
Finally, it refers to the corruption problems that exist, the links of the officials with the mafias and other strategies that they use to justify and expand the expenses of the State.
