German industry is in the midst
of rapid readjustment. The changes
dated from June 1925 at the com

Stinr.es group. This situation has
been characterized by horizontal
fusions of principal producers into
one or more groups, with the ab

elimination through bankruptcy.
Such a shift has been evident in
coal, iron and steel, chemical, ma
chinery and many fiishing indus

movement includes the loss of for
