The article starts with examining the origins of the conference which was probably unique in its character. The conference, which took place in an English country house, was called at short notice and was due to a private British initiative. The background to the meeting was the economic and political rapprochement between France and Germany which was supposed to have harmful effects on British trade and industry. The formation of the International Steel Cartel from which British industry was excluded caused particular concern in Britain. Whereas German industry showed little enthusiasm for the conference the German foreign ministry welcomed the idea in order to improve relations between both countries and to dispel British fears of a continental bloc led by France and Germany. The discussions of the conference are then analysed. The participants exchanged their views on national and international combines and agreements, on the prospects and possibilities of \'cooperation\' or ententes between German and British industries as well as on European trade and tariffs. Agreements were not concluded at Broadlands. The conference was also a social event amply reported on in the press and the article tries to reconstruct the atmosphere of the meeting. Whereas the Reichsverband der Deutschen Industrie welcomed the outcome of the conference as a contribution to better Anglo-German relations, reactions in Britain were mixed and rather critical as is shown by the attitude of the Federation of British Industries. Besides a meeting at Leverkusen in June 1927 there were no further private \'Broadlands meetings\' whereas the industrial federations of both countries were to have several \'official\' conferences from 1926 onwards.
Business Strategies and the Law: Three Types of Entrepreneurial Processes from a Legal History PerspectiveAutor/Hrsg.: Pahlow, LouisCo-Autor/Co-Hrsg.: Sebastian TeupeJahr: 2021

The relationship between business strategies and legal institutions is important for understanding the historical dynamics of modern capitalism. While legal history and economic history have remained distinct disciplines, a growing number of studies now populates a vibrant «borderland» between the two. Building on frameworks of legal history, organization studies, and «new entrepreneurial history», our contribution systematizes the relation of entrepreneurship and the law from a historical perspective of change. This paper explains how an analysis of this specific relation contributes to our understanding of economic change and addresses the question of synthesis and interdisciplinary connectivity by offering a conceptual triad that focuses on the problems of agency and change at the intersection of businesses and the law. This paper argues that economic actors have used, sought, and avoided laws to transform their legal and economic environments. Each of these interactions combined a distinct set of variables conceptualized as legal business creativity, legal-institutional entrepreneurship, and Schumpeterian rule-breaking.

This article aims at contributing to a better understanding of the root causes for he competitiveness of the Japanese camera industry on the world market before the electronics revolution. It takes the example of the company Canon, one of the main camera manufacturers in Japan, and focuses on technological issues. The main result of this article is to demonstrate that Canon was able to establish itself as a competitive firm on the world market thanks to a particular production system, which incorporated the design of high-quality 35 mm cameras and mass production methods. The technological facilities developed during World War II for manufacturing armaments (training of engineers in niversities, optical instruments made by Nikon for the Navy) played a key role in the development of Canon after 1945.

This article focuses on Carl von Siemens, the youngest of three brothers and the driving force behind the internationalization of Siemens & Halske. In 1852, he founded the Berlin-based firm’s first foreign subsidiary in Paris. In the following decades, Carl von Siemens established St. Petersburg as the firm’s «financial home», as his older brother Werner called it. In the 1870s, he turned the company’s subsidiary Siemens Brothers in London into a global player in submarine telegraphy. When Siemens & Halske went public in 1897, Carl von Siemens, by then a Russian citizen, became chairman of the supervisory board of one of the world’s largest electrotechnical corporations. I argue that as an immigrant entrepreneur in Russia and England Carl von Siemens was able to mobilize resources specific to transnational migrants, including economic, social and cultural capital, that were crucial to the firm’s rapid growth. In the beginning of his time in Russia, he was identified as a German patriot and benefited from being known as a «Prussky Ingener». After having lived abroad for over four decades, however, his identity became more complex and hybrid, shaping his transnational entrepreneurship and strategic vision of Siemens & Halske as a global player.

Untertitel: the Rhenish Westphalian Coal Syndicate and the Coal Trade Association, 1918 to 1925The article focuses on the transnational business relationship between the German RWKS (Rheinisch-Westfälisches Kohlen-Syndikat, Essen) and the Dutch SHV (Steenkolen Handelsvereeniging, Utrecht), which was a successful sales relationship in the 1896 to 1945 period. On the one hand the importance of the export market for the RWKS is shown, and on the other hand it is reflected on the importance of a sales organization for a syndicate in general. Whereas the RWKS depended on the SHV for its sales organization, its distributions apparatus and its knowledge of the local market, the SHV depended on the RWKS for the sole selling rights for Ruhr coal on the Dutch market. World War I did not end this interdependent transnational cooperation, but created considerable leeway for tactical and strategical moves on both sides of the border that led to a new balance of power by the middle of the 1920s.

Untertitel: Neue Aspekte der historischen RationalisierungsforschungThe Bedaux system was a specific programme of rationalization with elements of Taylorism and Fordism. Based on the consulting of extra-firm Bedaux engineers the system represented a method of time and motion studies with both aspects of wage management and business management. Concerning wage management the system was a simple premium system based on guaranteed hourly wages. Regarding business management however the Bedaux system emerged to be a rather modern system of managing and accounting. Bedaux started as a special system for work measurement and wage determination but turned out to be effective above all as general system for the management of business organization, manufacturing and cost controlling. It covered both blue and white collar workers, especially of the middle management. During the 1920s and 1930s worldwide there were about thousand companies in 21 countries that were run according to Bedaux, mainly in the USA but also in Great Britain and France. In Germany however the Bedaux system was carried through only in the rubber and tire industry. The reason was that on the one hand German business leader were reluctant to adopt this new American system\' and preferred the German Rate system, ignoring that the rationalization effects of the Bedaux system were much more far-reaching than only the reduction of labour costs. On the other hand there was strong resistance of the German labour movement against the Bedaux system. Continental, the leading rubber company in Germany, was open minded against that American system and did heavily profit from it, thus overcoming relatively undamaged the Great Depression and improving its competitive capabilities.

The article gives a summarizing account on the history of the Swiss pension system. The system, praised by the World Bank and the OECD for its financial stability, is based upon the three pillar of state benefits, occupational and private pensions. Focusing on the occupational and private pillars the article distinguishes three periods: the early era of occupational pensions between 1900 and 1931, the period between 1931 and 1972, when the occupational system rapidly expanded whereas the establishment of the state\'s scheme was first delayed until 1948 and then inhibited in its growth, and the third period after 1972 with the official recognition of a three pillar system and the public promotion of occupational and private pension schemes. The article also points out the limitations of the Swiss model, like the modest level of state benefits, causing a comparably high level of old-age poverty, or the inequalities of the occupational pension system, particularly the discrimination of part-time and low-wage earners.

The end of an automobile company – Borgward’s bankruptcy and Bremen politics. The collapse of the Borgward company in early 1961 was not only a shocking moment forBremen, but for the entire German automobile industry. The circumstances of the largest bankruptcy of a German company at the time have repeatedly been subject to debate, especially concerning suspicions and accusations about who was to blame. Those responsible in Bremen politics at the time have especially been the focus of attention and criticism since then. The following study aims to show that grave mistakes within the management of Borgward, such as wrong choices concerning corporate strategy, excessive production- and sales-costs and an antiquated style of leadership, were responsible for the bankruptcy, not Bremen’s politicians. This highlights that a scientifically ambitious historical revision of the Borgward-bankruptcy needs to review new aspects of the story rather than following the approach of previous studies in order to not fall victim to conspiracy theories or ill-founded suspicions.
