Most of Britains gold was sitting in Canada during the war (as was France's. Also, the US found a lot of Germany's gold). Reparations were being made. I wonder if they ever got much from the Soviets??

Interesting stuff, the economics of Total War (interesting from 70 years ago perspective. Would not want to live through it).

Found this http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/britain-pays-off-final-instalment-of-us-loan--after-61-years-430118.html

As least Britain paid up.

Wow! That is pretty crazy.

I would agree that much of the US's post-war success is because it was ... post-War, and the US mainland was nearly untouched, and of course, our industry was jump started from supplying the armaments to the Allies.

But the US industry was industrious enough to create those armaments. The German scientists who helped with rocketry and atomic engineering didn't hurt, either.
