The twentieth century was the century of democracy and of globalization. In its first part, it was the century of social rights; in its last quarter, the century of republican rights–the right that every citizen has that the ires publica, the public patrimony, be not captured by private interests. There are three types of public patrimony: the historical and cultural patrimony, the environment, and the economic patrimony or the public budget.

Keywords: capture; environment; historical and cultural patrimony; public budget; public patrimony; rent seeking; ires publica
