Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I should have written the total aid. In the year prior to the Marshall plan they gave $13 billion and then another 12.7 in the Marshall Plan. Germany was one of the biggest beneficiaries, but unlike countries in the Eastern Bloc and Greece where all the money was spent on the military in fighting still running wars, 60% of the 3 billion given to Germany was used giving loans to industry to rebuild Germany's industrial capacity.
