Sectoral economic policy in the austrofascist State extraordinary times demand extraordinary methods. That put in relationship of law and time is a prerequisite for an appropriate assessment of standards and their content here. In 1933, specifically on the 22.Juli, decreed the Christian social Minister for trade and transport, Stockinger, a regulation about the mail-order business of footwear. The reason of this regulation was to protect of the local shoe retailer. They wanted to protect the small businesses threatened by the economic crisis and craftsmen, such as just the cobbler to the industrial producers of footwear and footwear wholesalers and induce them to share about the complete value chain from the industry and wholesale to retail consumers to distribute to the producer and trade margins according to. Regulation was extended by federal law this regulation entered into force on September 15, 1933 and was for the time being until the 15th of 1934 temporary.

This time limit has been extended with federal law of September 1934 until January 1, 1936. On December 31, 1935, an adapted scheme for the shipping trade of footwear was legally decided for the period from 1 January 1936 until January 1, 1937. This arrangement was extended subsequently to the year 1938. “In the years from 1933 to 1938 were in the so-called State”, on the basis of the Austro “was justified and provided an authoritarian governance, democratically composite parliaments were switched off, so that a regulatory and legislative monopoly of the Federal Government in General and abstract standards decided and put in place. No acceptance of orders of footwear footwear retailers and shoe production holdings were domestically, no orders for footwear for people not living in the location area of the shoe shop or shoe producer, seek or accept. From January 1, 1936 of galoshes and other rubber overshoes, rubber slippers were”excluded.

No Advertising for the shipping trade of footwear no advertising for the range of footwear mail in promotional literature, public announcements or communications could be made. Newspaper announcements and posters were excluded from the ban on advertising from January 1, 1936. Heavy fines and arrest on the application and implementation of the footwear shipping trade were high fines and arrest. So, violations of this regulation fines were punished up to 2,000 shillings or arrest up to six months. Also, a fall of objects, i.e. the advertising materials and shoes was intended. In addition, the possibilities for appeal were limited. Only from a fine of over 1,000 schillings or arrest of more than six weeks you could go in appeal, an action that has clearly undermined the rule of law. The principle was paramount. Mail order and advertising today today there are such restrictions and prohibitions as in the monopoly legally highly regulated trade in tobacco products. So the application and delivery of tobacco products, so cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, rolling tobacco, chewing and snuff in public about the tobacco monopoly law prohibits in 1996. Advertising shall be made, at the commercial site only so in and on the newsstand, while the shipping, but also the delivery of tobacco products is prohibited altogether.
