Reparationen, Sozialprodukt, Lebensstandard
Reparationen, Sozialprodukt, Lebensstandard
By G. W. Harmssen
Trüjen, 1947, 13 pp

At the request of the Minister-Presidents of the Länder in Bizonia, Senator Harmssen of Bremen prepared this report on the plight of the German economy. Essentially it is a brief against reparations with little recognition of why the victors may have felt justified in taking them. It is too bad that one of the first large-scale economic works to come out of postwar Germany should not have been more objective, more constructive and less self-pitying.
