In industries such as Swiss watches, German and British shirtwaists, and bicycles all over Europe, American competition initially triumphed, but Europeans then learned from American methods and won back markets. 23 While Europeans found some American mass-produced goods appealing, they complained that American ﬁrms often pushed standardized items and failed to attend to the particular interests of foreign buyers as, for example, the Germans did. 24 Moreover, the United States was not the undisputed leader in science and technology that it later became.
After traveling to the United States in 1905, for example, Philipp Harjes concluded: There is no need to fear that our German industry will be endangered by America as long as we remain true to ourselves and keep our eyes open, for our strengths lie in other areas, and due to national character and relationships, will always lie there. A few optimistically argued that Germany might become the leader of an economically united Europe. 37 American observers did not see an economic danger arising across the Atlantic.
