and just for the record. hitler did a great job at fighting unemployment, that figure went from 4,8 million to 119 THOUSAND from 1933 to the start of WWII, and even around 10 thousand in 1942, way to good to be true. seems like hitler didnt believe in a "natural unemployment rate".
but why was that? because the german industry boomed? well lets just say that the absolute value of gov debt rose by 3121% during the third reich. before WWII, it was already around 400% and twice as much when set in relation to the GDP.
it was the arms industry that needed so many workers and was obviously subsidized by hitler.
i correct my earlier statement on the "printing" money policy. i know there were programs in place to forge GBP and USD, but apparently the reichsmark was pretty stable, with an average inflation rate under 1%.
BOTTOM LINE (translated quote out of the article):
"...hitler build its economic miracle on debts...he knew that his plan can only work if he wins the war and can occupy additional countries and enslave additional peoples..."
thats not what i call a legitimate financial strategy and i dont like that hitler gets "credit" for it and that some fuckheads in germany/austria "wish" him back in economically troublesome times. and additionally, every "famous" politician either spend a shitload of money on its own people (adding debts) or won a war. there is no grey area.
(its german, but translate it with your browser, so the tables should be understandable, the rest not so much; the article is from a psychotherapist and deals with the reality and perception of hitler being a financial genius)
in all seriousness, i read that 3 times, 1st time i thought what the fuck is he on about, read it again and thought, this fuckbag has to be kidding, read it once more and decided calling you a fuckbag wasnt good enough - sick-as-aids
