The French and German Experiences Compared
In the preceding chapters, we have given detailed accounts of developments in German and French enterprise, and the reader may have been struck by the mixture of similarities and differences that characterised the period from 1950 to 1970 in the two countries. The following pages will present explicit comparisons between them on a number of important dimensions. Finally, the conclusions to be drawn from the pattern of twenty years of evolution in industrial enterprise will be discussed, in the last chapter, in terms of their possible implications for the future of European corporations and their managers.
