This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the large-scale cross-national transfer of the American business model to Western Europe. It suggests that the post-war transformation of the national systems of industrial production in Western Europe was the consequence of an organized attempt to Americanize the Western European industrial landscape. Twenty years after the war, most of the common features of Western European systems of industrial production could be traced back to the American model, and this trend of American export of business models has still not subsided.
