The inclusion in the EEC Treaty of topics such as social policy and agricultural policy is indicative of the many compromises between the Six, and especially between France and the Federal Republic of Germany. France feared that Germany would benefit most from the more open markets of the proposed customs union and wanted compensation in other fields. Thus France insisted on special protection for agriculture, which had historically been sheltered from competition from abroad and from which one in five French workers still earned their livelihood.
The heads of state and government noted the difficulties which in 1973 and 1974 had combined to frustrate the Werner Plan. They reiterated their desire to achieve an EMU but did not give any deadline. The 1972 Paris Summit declaration that the EMU would be reached by 1980 was not repeated. A ‘mini-snake’ continued to exist between Germany and a few other countries closely aligned with it economically, but that was of course a far cry from the Communitywide ambition at the outset. One reason for the collapse of the EMU attempt in the 1970s was that the EEC member states did not take seriously enough the need to coordinate their policies.
War had become a particularly perilous prospect since 1953, when the Soviet Union had exploded its first hydrogen bomb and was readying an intercontinental system for weapons delivery. US territory could now be reached, especially as from 1957, when the Soviet launch of the first satellite, Sputnik, produced a veritable shock in the Western camp. A nuclear exchange would all of a sudden almost certainly result in MAD, or Mutual Assured Destruction. This meant a rather rigid alliance system for both sides, but one which – unlike the situation before and between the world wars – was generally stable and left little room for the lesser powers to break out on their own and risk a generalised conflict.
