Example text

True industrial policy, which resulted in administrative decisions, more often than not maintained its traditional course, only vaguely acknowledging the new legislation which arose. Rarely did this result in major changes, stemming from the new legislation, in public-sector administration and in the strategy of individual firms. This also implied the absence of the often unwritten strategic understanding between enterprises and public-sector administration, which forms the basis of industrial policy in France, Spain and, with some differences, Germany.

Confindustria proposed that industrial policy be directed toward accepting the challenge of new international trade by means of a policy which focused on the factors of production. The adoption of the by-factor policy and the shelving of the by-sector policy, though not an all-encompassing programme, was nonetheless regarded as an acceptable expression of changing times (Confindustria [6]). (18) Also of note is the delay in making the payments provided for under the law and the lengthy disputes with regard to its interpretation, especially with the Commis· sion of European Communities.

The growing danger of the collapse of all large-sized enterprises caused industrial policy to aim at halting the spread of this crisis to Italian industry as a whole. The choice of instruments used to avert danger represented one of the most dangerous differentiations from the policies of other European countries. The crisis of firms was not viewed as an opportunity to carry out the necessary regrouping and rationalization dictated by the new competitive framework; rather, bailouts became the order of the day.
