Ambrose Evans-Pritchard was right to say that Adam Fergusson’s When Money Dies throws little light on events today. Comparisons between the present era and the Weimar Republic in the early 1920s are inappropriate. There is plenty of evidence that Germany’s Great Inflation in the early 1920s was an internal initiative to eliminate Germany’s huge internal debts from the war, after which she adopted a new debt free currency.
Today, in contrast, Germany is adopting a deflationary economic policy. It affects all the countries within her orbit including the UK. Had Gordon Brown taken note when Germany first raised VAT in January 2007 and gave the benefits to industry, our national finances would be in better shape.

  • How Hitler Came To Power Press Release

              How Hitler Came To Power describes how what amounted to a conspiracy of the German military and industrial cliques, manipulated Allied leaders and misrepresented the Treaty of Versailles to further their ambitions, with zero regard for the human cost.
             Germany was far stronger economically by 1929 than she had been before the First World War. How Hitler Came To Power makes the case that she was primarily responsible for the Wall Street crash. By 1931 she was the greatest exporter in the world, with a mountain of cash in the bank. Yet the German people were subjected to high taxation, mass unemployment and misinformation in the cause of ridding Germany of the shackles of Versailles and returning the country to dictatorship
