Exporting the American Model

This chapter discusses the influence of internal crisis and outside dependence of some Western European countries on the success of the cross-national transfer of the American model of industrial production. The end of World War II led to the collapse of the national order in France, Germany, and Italy, and confirmed the position of the U.S. as a world superpower. The three countries then became solidly anchored to the American sphere of influence, particularly in their national reconstruction efforts. This led to the large-scale, cross-national transfer of American industrial structural arrangements.

Keywords:   cross-national transfer, internal crisis, industrial production, American business model, national reconstruction, France, Germany, Italy
