I have just added a new data series that might just please students of World War II and fans of the HistoryNetwork.org podcast. It is the first of a series of many as I share a passion with many historians for the history of World in between 1920 and 1950.
This data series might just be of interest to individuals who argue that the post-war economic miracle of Germany (fast growth) was in fact just a “rebound effect” of reconstruction of physical capital. I expected a greater extent of destruction than observed here which casts doubt on this view in my opinion, but it does help to fuel the debate.
Please note that this data series is made available in the “data sets” page of this blog and be consulted free or charge.
