Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I have read a lot of the USA economic literature of the 30s.  There is barely any mention of what was happening in USSR.  Of course, a LOT had to be happening--how else does one explain Magnetogorsk or those tanks and guns that won the battle of Kursk?

On the other hand, the German economy was studied extensively.  And much of it was on public display--i.e. air shows, auto races, etc.  Therefore, when folks discussed strategies for coping with the Depression, it was usually the German example that was used.

Thanks for your comment.
