This book gives a new perspective for economists drawing comparisons between the present and the Great Depression.

A new book is exploring Hitler’s rise and Germany’s role as a catalyst in the Great Depression as it draws modern comparisons with today’s economic climate.

In How Hitler came to Power (published by AuthorHouse), author Sara Moore reveals that Germany was a powerful country in 1929, asserting that German economic and political machinations were primarily responsible for the 1929 stock market crash. Moore claims that Germany also bore a heavy responsibility for the Great Depression and alleges that without it, the German people would never have voted for Hitler.

“This book gives a new perspective for economists drawing comparisons between the present and the Great Depression”, says Moore. “Now the anxiety is whether we are going to have the next parallel, a banking crash in Europe.”

Moore reveals that Germany deliberately raised taxes and lowered wages in 1930 in its effort to rid itself of what it termed the ‘shackles’ of the Versailles Treaty and to return the country to dictatorship.

Her book also sheds light on the German industrialists secret agreement to export arms to the Soviet Union between 1929 and 1933, with the special proviso that Stalin order the German Communists to vote with Hitler and the Right in the Reichstag. It divulges how a near-bankrupt Stalin paid for the German armaments, by flooding America with wheat, at rock-bottom prices, while his own people starved.

“Stalin is dead today and wheat and other commodity prices are buoyant,” says Moore. “Yet Germany seems to be advocating that the euro zone adopt an ever more rigorous deflationary economic policy, even though its savage deflation ushered in misery, despair and Hitler in the 1930s.”
