At the end of 1923, Stresemann became Chancellor and also served as the foreign minister until his death in 1929. During these years, Germany recovered in economy, national pride and confidence. These years can be perceived as the “Golden Age” of the republic. However, this redemption in Germany may not have been as full as it seems so it is necessary to balance the successes and failures. Initially, during this period Stresemann made some tough decisions but they resulted in a stabilised economy.
To what extent was Stresemann responsible for the increased stability in Germany in 1924-29? The increased stability in Germany during the years of 1924-1929 was due to Gustav Stresemann's policies. I will be reflecting on the reasons that suggest he was responsible for this. Before Stresemann came into power German enconomy was in the air. As the chancellor in 1923 he led Germany out of the hyperinflation crisis and as the foreign minister, he ended Germany's isolation amongst the international community and helped the country to become a magnet for foreign investment.
This meant that Germany had a long period of time to pay back the reperations, causing less harm to the economy and political stability. This evidence are reasons for recovery. I agree with this view as there were many factors, as shown above, that make me feel the recovery was affective. On the other hand, evidence shows that many people may disagree with the recovery of the Weimar Republic. Political recovery had against factors as the basic problems of the constitution remained.
German Immigration and the Development of the Beer Industry in America. The most noted reason why Germans had left their homeland for America were varied. Some would say intolerable economic conditions in the German states and a desire for improvement in the shortest time as possible was one of the foremost reasons for the coming of Germans to America. Not only where the pauperize people were coming to America. There were many of the comparatively prosperous who also came; to better themselves economically.
The rapid growth of old and new industries led to a population migration from rural to urban areas. The agricultural industry was another of the industries that faced a lot of changes, mechanisation meant better yields which therefore meant that, less agricultural workers were needed. There is evidence to support and contradict whether or not those economic developments did in fact threaten the power of the elites. There is evidence to support the idea that the economic developments in Germany in the period 1900-1914 didn’t pose a threat to the power of the elites because economic growth and the opening up of new industries bring many benefits with them. While it has been argued that an exceptional economic growth caused some problems, the advantages that came with it, outweigh the negatives.
He would provide recovery by creating the NRA (National Recovery Act). The National Recovery Act helped recover from the depression by controlling production, prices, labor relations, and the trade practice in businesses. Although the Supreme Court declared this act as unconstitutional, it led to the PWA (Public Works Administration) and the NIRA. Both of these programs help put money back into the economy, and helped stimulate the economy. Roosevelt’s New Deal program did help America with recovery, relief, and reform at the time, and for the future.
The liberal Tories introduced reforms because in the 1820’s the country’s state was better and prosperity returned. The economic conditions improved, also trade increased, unemployment was falling, and bread was cheaper. Since of this better form of the country, there was less discontent and social unrest. Besides the Government was less threatened by protests and radical politics, because, by now the harsh policies were relaxed, as well as people. Also new progressive members were put in place who were Liberal Tories, including Peel, Canning, Robinson, and Huskisson.
This period saw the gradual strengthening of Prussia with the Zollverein and economic reforms. Also with the failure of the congress of Vienna, which was aimed to control the liberalist and nationalist ideas, Austria started suffering more problems as the Austrian leader was much more conservative about these ideas than Bismark, so the Austrians lost influence amongst the people. Futhermore, Prussia was in advantage because Bismark was much more popular than the Austrian leader. Bismark was more effective; the type of economic progress contented the majority of the middle classes. Kleindutch supporters saw in Prussia a more cohesive state, which was less archaic and more progressive economically.
For example, the people of Germany were fed and housed after the war and the Allies were beginning to make a structured society; many Nazi professionals, such as doctors and administration staff, were re-educated politically - even high-ranking Nazis were excused from punishment – and returned to their previous occupations so as to help Germany thrive. Also, the decentralisation of German power showed that the Allies were willing to help rebuild Germany politically as they did not just remove Nazis from power and leave the country without a stable government. However, the carrying-out of denazification was slack from the beginning. Firstly, the USA excused Nazi officials if they claimed to have information on the USSR and German missile programs. In fact, many of the policies put forward by the occupying
As we see today we are still seeing changes in our military and defense system. Another aspect about the post war that changed the way the U.S. functions today was the changes in the American workforce. The amount of jobs during WWII was scarce especially following the great depression. The government wanted to make sure this would not be a continuing dilemma post-war to ensure that the economy would not be stuck at a stand
