This chapter shows that the Americanization of production technology, management methods, and market order in the French steel-producing and steel-using industries after the Second World War was a rather slow and difficult process. The steel-producing and steel-using industries have been chosen for in-depth analysis as they played a crucial role in post-war reconstruction and the subsequent ‘economic miracle’ in France. They also illustrate the effects of the mutual interdependence between basic materials and their transformation, mass-production industry, and machinery suppliers on the Americanization process. The chapter addresses both industries in turn, and this examination results in an overall conclusion and a brief epilogue dealing with the influence of Americanization during the immediate post-war period on subsequent developments.
