I Challenge you to a debate that involves the Nazis reign in Germany.
Debate Round No. 1


Thank you for accepting the debate!


1st Arguement: Pre World War 2 economy

After WW1 the Germans had to sign the Treaty of Versailles. This treaty severly undercutted the German military and their economy. The German GDP Growth slowed to 150 mil marks from 350 mil marks [1]. Not only this but the German unemployment rates exploded to 30 percent from 5 percent pre WW1 [2]. A loaf of bread went from costing 1 mark in 1918 to 200,000,000,000 marks in 1923 [3].

2nd Arguement: The Economy after the rise of Hitler

After Hilter rose to power the Gross national Income finally rose above the negative mark [4]. The unemployment rate dropped to under 5 percent which was less than pre WW1![5]. Hitler also helped create massive highway systems, introduced the automobile and rebuilt the German Army which all resulted in more jobs which created more jobs

OK...could the rise in economic numbers be attributed to the fact that millions were murdered in a short span of time? When that happened, there were fewer people seeking jobs which means the stats will improve greatly. Also there were tons of people recruited into the military, taking them from the stats.

Put millions into military service + kill millions more = economic upturn?
