Abstract "The following contribution focusses on the directors and managements of big chemical plants in the 1960s, as they belonged to the economic and functional elites of the GDR. Starting out from the significance of the region's chemical industry, their leading cadres are group-specifically located, their integration into the system of planned economy is characterized, and their tasks in the context of the SED's housing policy are described. In the 1950s and 1960s, in the GDR the building of new flats was exclusively considered a tool for the promotion of economy, which is demonstrated by the example of the District of Halle. In this context, the plant directors were important actors in the struggle for the scarce commodity of housing space, as they represented the interests of their plants and employees. Their behaviour and negotiation strategies are in the focus of the study." (author's abstract)
