|Report||Cartels were up until 1945 a legal and normal form of business cooperation in many countries, which did not just yield regional and national cartels but represented a way to spawn economic strategies and interests. Economic History as well as Business History research has previously only given little attention to the overarching meaning and the cementing function of cartels in national and international competition. Within the six month that I was able to spend at the Institutt for Arkeologi, Historie, Kultur- og Religionsvitenskap in Bergen, Norway, Prof. Dr. Harm G. Schröter and I worked on a new methodological framework for the Business History debate on cartels. In a methodological way our project „Cartels and cartelized economic Framework: internal Forces and external Appearance, 1880-1945/47“ overcomes the traditional perspective on the ‘monopoly’ of cartels and draws more attention to internal debates, conflicts and ‘competitive’ principles in cartelized industries.|
