General Clay's free-enterprise for German industrialists in the Rhur

Clay; Lucius DuBignon (1897-1978); General
NotesWhen the US (General Clay) and British Military Governors in Germany produced the plan for raising the level of production in the Anglo-American bi-zone, Bidault was worried. Bevin only slightly less so. All the industries restricted in the Postdam Agreement got higher targets and permitted steel production rose sharply. The French had grave anxiety about the risks that went with the American insistence on encouragement of German private enterprise under a general control unlikely to be permanent once the industry of the Ruhr, the heart of aggressive power, began to revive. The British had wanted public ownership; the French had wished all the governments concened to have seats on the board of control.
