She emphasized the differences between the institutional links that exist, for example, between the ﬁnancial and industrial sectors in Germany and in the UK, and she concluded that the English banking system could not be imported to Germany without disrupting long-term credit relations between banks and industrial ﬁrms. In her review of the German Banking Act of 1934 (1935) Dessauer pointed out that the German system of universal banking, on the other hand, was susceptible to ‘the authoritarian inﬂuence of the government’, even though the Act gave the impression to many observers that it could not but help to reestablish the principles of sound banking.
