Emergence of a Cross-National Modernizing Network

Exporting the American Model

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the key players and institutional channels that influenced the emergence of a cross-national modernizing network that paved the way for the cross-national transfer of the American model of industrial production to Western Europe. In the late 1940s, France and West Germany established cross-national networks with a number of Americans in key institutional positions of power. Such a network never emerged in Italy because of differences in objectives and ideology between the Italians and the American group. The institutional contiguity inbetween the Germans and the Americans was provided by the American Military Government in Germany.

Keywords:   cross-national modernizing network, cross-national transfer, American business model, industrial production, France, Germany, Italy
