Hitler's Economic Miracle

After the First World War Germany was in a bad way. So were England and France. The terms of the Versailles Treaty made matter worse for the Germans; they were grossly oppressive. Then, in 1933 Adolf Hitler took over and things got better. It was an economic miracle albeit some people deny it.

How was it done? Was it really a miracle? Did it just mean getting various parasites out of the way? Is banking a corrupt Boondoggle that oppressed people? Was it run by Jews? Was that why naughty  Adolf didn't like them? These questions arise & point to the tensions, the agendas, the contrary answers, the enthusiasm for denying the truth. The reality certainly made him very popular. Relieving starvation can have that effect.

Nazi Germany and the Economic Miracle - History Learning Site
Tells us that Adolf's economic miracle was largely fraudulent. Making women stay at home sounds sensible; Feminists object of course. Putting a lot of young men in the Wehrmacht improves employment statistics. Having some three out of ten in war work does too.
I am not convinced by this one. If people had food and work it had to be better.


Hitler's Economic Miracle--the Greatest ever!
The greatest economic miracle of all time was achieved by Hitler from 1933 to 1938 during a world depression and in spite of the worldwide anti-German boycott by Jews. See the unemployment graph above. If America ever intends to seriously deal with its own economic disaster today, it must first learn from Adolf Hitler.

The chart above appears in Burton Folsom's excellent new book: New Deal or Raw Deal? on page 243 [ or see http://digital.library.northwestern.edu/league/le0276af.pdf ]. One can see that in 1932, the year before Hitler and Roosevelt both came to power, Germany's unemployment rate was 30.1% and America's was 24.9%. But within just five years, Germany's unemployment rate was reduced to only 4.6% (1937) and dropped even further to only 2.1% a year later. By contrast, FDR in 1937 still had 13.2% unemployment which actually rose to 19.8% a year later. Hitler was the clear, unmatched winner in terms of economic management. No doubt, the fiendish Nazis must have been in league with the devil himself to pull off this economic miracle which is unmatched in all of human history. Hitler's achievement becomes all the more stunning when one realizes that America was, and still is, a vast country with vast resources whereas Germany was a small country with coal as its only resource. Germany had been defeated in a terrible war which America won and to whom almost the entire world was deeply in debt financially. Germany was also the target of a worldwide Jewish economic boycott and had no gold reserves whereas America had an abundance of everything—except leadership. The name of Germany's leadership was: ADOLF HITLER!
CODOH sympathises with naughty Adolf who made things worse, better or much better according to political sympathies. It is fair to add that Franklin D Roosevelt was a de facto Marxist whose "New Deal" made matters worse but kept him in power. You doubt it? See e.g. a Review of New Deal Or Raw Deal?. The verdict is that he was bad news.
