|Spanish term or phrase: concepción patrimonial|
|"Pervivencia de amplios mecanismos clientelares en la distribución pública del bienestar, sobre la base de unos aparatos administrativos de lógica, muchas veces, más pre-weberiana que racional burocrática, y de modelos de liderazgo político todavía apegados a una **concepción patrimonial** del Estado (Adelantado y Gomà, 2000)."|
|patrimonial concept of State|
The idea is conservative and is generally traced to monarchic forms that depend on the concept of wealth and inheritance (not so much "capital" in the Marxist sense, but rather more pre-mercantile). Old money is virtue because it moves mountains, and it is not yet quite the property of the merchant middle class, which came later. You could almost say "patriarchal", but it's not the same, of course.
