First British Edition. [First Published: As ‘Wohlstand fu¨r alle’ in Germany]. From the cover: “In June 1948, after the U.S. and British Occupation authorities had re-valued the Mark, the Bizonal economic adviser announced that he had issued a decree ending rationing and price controls. ‘Turn the people and the money loose, said Professor Ludwig Erhard, ‘ and they will make the country strong.’ Such was the beginning of a courageous experiment in economic ideas and practise, of Marktwirtschaft, free market economy, which has made Germany in 1957, twelve years after total defeat, one of the most powerful and stable economic units in a world of inflationary troubles.
