The controversial plan for Germany post-WWII first announced by US Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau in 1944, which called for the immediate total deindustrialization of the country, with a focus on extracting reparations for its wrongdoings during the war, as well as its forced political and economic decentralization, and transformation into a pastoral society. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt OK'd it, only to regret it when the plan was vigorously decried at home and abroad. The Marshall Plan was adopted instead under Truman and efforts to deindustrialize and decartelize the Germany economy were limited. Item #140941614
