Hjalmar Schacht, financier et diplomate (1930-1950)

Abstract : For Hjalmar Schacht, president of the Reichsbank, the Weimar Republic failed in regulating the crisis that hit Germany in the late 1920s. Thus he did not hesitate to work with the Third Reich and became Minister of Economy of Hitler. Acquitted at Nurenberg, he has since never ceased to be a preoccupations for essayists and historians. If some have qualified him a finance illusionist, others have succumbed to fascination and hagiography. The author retraces the Nazi era of the central banker, from his first resignation as President of the Reichsbank in 1930 to his denazification in 1950. This book enlightens the motivations of his collaboration with Hitler in the 1930s, explains its monetary and economic policy under the Nazi regime and explains how he escaped any conviction after 1945.
