Muetzenfabrik

Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    And that, good sir, is a truth that is hard to take. I have discovered far from being an accretion like a kidney stone, the Third Reich is a point on a continuum. I often feel the internet is robbing me (and others) of the ability to study and think. We have become hummingbirds tasting sips of data from a firehose.

    The Continent beckons.

    How true: the internet is robbing us all of the ability to study and think. The problem is compounded by the acceleration of all things so that the mind physically cannot work through the complexity. Multi tasking is hardly a way to do something well. But, in fact, the story of the rise of consumer culture is well known and others have interpreted it wonderfully. My point to point little essays don't help you very much and are the result of my own struggle with all of this.

    The quality of many articles in Wikipedia has improved greatly, but it is by no means the beginning and end of historical study. It is helpful as an adjunct to conventional study, but it does not replace it or eradicate a library. And the internet worsens the tendency that already exists in history that everyone quotes each other without discovering either something based on the sources or which is at all new. This churning and recycling irritates me so much about these sites, since the same happens here. I have recently spent a great deal of money to learn new things, but all such knowledge is incomplete.

    Branding on globalized scale as we know it is a product of the recent past, whereas the rise of say Coca Cola or MGM or whatever in the world before 1939, let's say, still found a commercial world that had a lot of diversity in it. This diversity has vanished in the era of globalized capitalism of especially the last twenty years, where you can travel on all the continents and see the same franchises. The local, the specialized, the unique has been eradicated more and more, which was a process against which the Nazis agitated with department stores and F.W. Woolworth, for instance. The other point is that Germany had a very high level of aesthetic sense, interest in the application of the arts to products, industrial design, revolutionary changes to life in industrialization and urbanization all of which is still aesthetically impressive. There are shelves and shelves of very good books about this....but they are on shelves and they are books and the electric book reader thingy won't get you there.

    PS the above images contain no "sculls," Tombak, Cupal, "prongs," or "crimps." They further were not revealed to me by my great, great, great grandfather at the Fa. Deschler in Muenchen, either.
    damit, basta.

    This volume actually contains a lot of very interesting discussion about Nazi economic ideas, especially as they applied to the SS.
    An excellent source.Click image for larger version.

    The ideas herein are not those taught at the University of Chicago and its imitators, that much I can tell you.

    Of course we know the Chicago Boys wield nothing less than laws of nature and stone fact with their unseen hand. Soon our great land shall be purified of all New Deal heresies.

    I really wish I could read this document. The common perception is that Hitler sold out the revolution with the Rohm Putsch and betrayed the core socialist principles that had drawn the working class away from the NSDAP's communist rivals.

    This is the most recent of many books on the economy in Nazi Germany and in modern Germany overall.

    I am not in the habit of revealing my views of contemporary US politics, since that is not my job. There was an article in the NYT on a proposed code of ethics for economists, i.e. for them to reveal their conflicts of interest, which I think is a capital idea.

    The rest of us have to engage in full disclosure of same to the nth degree.

    Our interest is history and its artifacts, and not contemporary politics.

    This by R.J. Overy is also quite good, it is a little older, but by the leading expert.Name:  war-economy-in-third-reich-r-j-overy-paperback-cover-art.jpg

    Also, without wanting to put too fine a point on it, the assertion at the start of this thread as regards cap factories versus cap makers (crafts & artisans) is in no way borne out by the evidence in the Handbuch d. RZM. The latter represented in numerical terms the vast majority of person, firms, whatever making such caps. I have no idea the relative size of said production by the height of the war, but the number of crafts/artisan cap makers was many, many times that of cap factories on a mechanized basis. I shall count the respective number of RZM licenses later, when I am in a better mood and have recovered from the holidays.Name:  Snapshot 2010-12-29 09-02-36.jpg

    I had just found the Tooze book. It shall be added to the stack.

    There is also Avraham Barkai's "Nazi Economics." But the Tooze book seems more comprehensive.

    Sorry. Yes present day concerns are tedious. We shall focus Pre-May '45 with the occasional side bar regarding the DDR and GDR as necessary.
