Analytically, the notion of ide- ology is best approached as a generic concept, with multiple potential meanings. By applying a wide understanding of the concept, one can understand ideologies as more or less coherent systems of ideas and beliefs concerning the world and social practices. A wide approach to the ideology concept, moreover, is advantageous in the sense that it encompasses both psychological and macro

In Nöllenburg's view, the big international trusts would collaborate with private interests which understood how to react to world market conditions but not with inexperienced and ignorant bureaucrats running a state monopoly. The great oil companies certainly would react very negatively to the sale o f Rumanian oil to the Central Powers at a lower than world market price. At the same time, the demand for Rumanian oil in Germany could be expected to decrease after the war, especially because o f the increasingly
