#14 Adam Tooze on Nazi ideology and the German war economy Politics Theory Other

We discussed the entwinement of Nazi ideology and economics, the explanation for the apparent irrationality of German military strategy, the comparative backwardness of the German economy in the pre-war period, and the question of 1930s parallels in the post-financial crash era.
