I may add as well, that Germany was more free market orientated all the time since WW II compared with France. Less industry policy (even some very extreme free market people in Germany said, we need more of that, if the French are doing it), more independence of the central bank with a clear priority of figthing inflation, and Ludwig Ehrhard called himself a neoliberal, where the neo however really meant, that there is a difference between calssical liberalism and neoliberalism.
