How companies from two neighbouring economies, with quite different industrial structures, reorganised themselves to face the great depression, then consolidate their recovery. Following an assessment of the organisational benefits at the end of the 1920s, an end-to-end comparison of the rationalization measures adopted, and the reactions aroused among the ranks of workers and their organisations, revealed great similarities. First of all, they concern the organisational choices (Taylorization often restricted to the study of time, mass production adjusted according to the size of the companies and their markets, reinforcing production control, etc.); part of the origin of these similarities can be found in the exchanges between the directors of the two industries. Despite a superior degree of organisation among trade unions in Belgium, the reactions of the unions to rationalisation were comparable in both countries through their weakness; the strikes of 1936 did not challenge rationalisation, which, on the contrary, enjoyed a new boom.
