Example text

All countries tried to recover economic prosperity not by laissez-faire mechanisms of foreign trade and open markets, but by mercantilist-style policies of concentrating on national resources, which included formal and informal empires. Remedies were no longer sought on the basis of Adam Smith’s open international market but on Friedrich List’s national protectionism. State intervention, planning, cooperation (cartels), and organization were the new keywords of the day. The American prototype of competitive capitalism, which European business and political leaders had found increasingly attractive since the beginning of the century, forfeited its allure by the crash of 1929.

Not only were the best times and best places for showing a film investigated, but also the differences between large and small towns, age of the audience, as well as the specific appeal of individual film stars. The consequences could be far-reaching. Not even divas such as Greta Garbo were immune. When Garbo attempted a come-back in 1947, she could not obtain a role, for the simple reason that Gallup polls showed that the American audience could not imagine her return to the screen. No studio doubted her ability, but the market had spoken, and for American film companies it was the market that decided, not artistic quality.

Consequently, European politicians were increasingly willing to cede to the economy a much larger role in society than previously, this, too, a feature of Americanization. But a substantial gap remained as shown by the differing world economic strategies of GE and IG Farben. Both firms dominated the world in their respective fields of electrical equipment and chemicals, and both wanted to achieve an orderly, stable world market. GE pursued this goal by financial means. It bought minority holdings in competing firms and used this investment power to control competition but not to eliminate it.
